Coming up with house decoration ideas can be overwhelming at first glance. With so many trinkets and accessories to choose from, the liberty of choice may feel more like a curse than a blessing.

But don’t worry—we’ve got you covered with some ways to make your décor dreams a reality, all without breaking the bank.

1. Add some plants or flowers to your home

If you want to add a splash of colour and freshness, consider adding plants or flowers to your home. Not only will they brighten up your living room and bedroom, but their ability to filter out toxins will also help to enhance air quality.

You don't need to have a green thumb to keep your potted plants alive, either. There are plenty of low-maintenance varieties out there that will thrive in your home. Some beginner-friendly plants to look out for include succulents, spider plants, and snake plants.

And if you really don't want to take care of plants, you can also consider fake plants. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours, so you're sure to find one that will fit in with your home's aesthetic.

2. Hang some artwork or photographs on the walls

Do you have a favourite photo from your childhood? Or maybe you have a favourite piece of art that you haven't yet shown off?

Instead of keeping them stored in a photo album, why not display your photographs in frames and hang them on the wall? It will add a personal touch to your home and make it feel more like your own.

If you’re not into photography, you could also consider hanging up some artwork from your favourite artist. Posters that feature your favourite pop culture references or quotes can also be a great way to personalise your space.

Instead of walls, you can also consider adding pictures on top of a bare tabletop. Get a Plexiglass with the same dimensions as the table, and tuck your photos or artwork below it. Voila - an interesting and unique coffee table top for your living room.

3. Change your furniture placement to create a new look

Don't be afraid to move your furniture around to create a new look. Sometimes all you need is to switch up the position of your coffee table and sofa to achieve a different vibe in your living room.

You could even use furniture from other rooms in your house to create a new look in your living room.

However, if you have some money set aside in your budget to scour your local flea market or the internet for furniture bargains, you're free to go ahead and do so. 

Just make sure you don’t buy too many new furniture pieces for your home. If you aren’t renovating, you’ll just end up cluttering the place.

4. Use colourful textiles like rugs, pillows, and curtains to brighten up a room

Adding some colourful textiles to a room is a great way to brighten it up and add some personality.

Not only do they add colour, but they can give the impression that you're living in a much bigger space. For example, with the right curtains, you can even give the illusion that your room is much bigger than it actually is! You may also give your pillows a makeover by adding or sewing elements like tea towels, lace, or ribbon trim.

You can easily find some sources of inspiration from online design websites like Pinterest. Just take a look at the latest trends, bookmark your favourite styles, and see what speaks to you. Of course, you can also search dedicated websites for your affordable home decor picks.

5. Add decorative accessories like vases, candles, and figurines

One of the easiest ways to add personality to your home is by using decorative accessories to add to your shelf, coffee table, and drawers.

You can find these items at any price point, so there's no need to stress if your budget is tight. The options are endless—you can pick anything from glassware to wooden figurines to metal sculptures.

Just make sure that you don't go overboard with the number of decorative accessories that you add. You want your home to look stylish, not cluttered.

6. Paint your walls and doors a new colour

Has your wall or door's shade lived its life? It might be time for a change.

Painting your walls and doors a new colour is a great way to modernise your home. A simple palette switch from brown to ochre, for example, can switch up the ambience of a room.

If you have creative juices, you can go beyond just painting the walls and doors a single splash of colour. You could also paint a mural or use stencils to create a unique look.
