10 Cheap & Simple Decorating Ideas

You don’t have to break the bank to spruce up your home. That’s why here at Helpling, we’ve compiled a list of 10 decorating ideas that can be achieved on a budget. These small changes will make such a difference and take very little time at all! 

Paint a wall

Painting a feature wall in your home is a really easy way to spruce up a room. It’s super cost-effective and will add a cool new dimension to your room.

Use throws to disguise tatty furniture

New furniture is expensive, so instead of throwing out your old sofa or armchair, just purchase a nice throw to hide any wear and tear.

Hang prints

Framed prints are really transformative and they don’t need to be expensive either. You can find so many great, affordable prints online and at car boot sales. If you’re feeling extra creative why not make your own print and hang it up for a more personalised touch!

Hide electrical cords

Cord concealers are fantastic at getting rid of the eyesores that are electrical cables. Hiding cords and wires will instantly make your home look more organised and clean.

Get some plants

Introduce some greenery into your home and get some plants! Not only do they look great, plants are also scientifically proven to reduce stress levels and improve concentration and productivity. If you’re not green fingered, do not worry, there are plenty of plants out there that need very little attention at all!

Paint the kitchen cabinets

Like painting a feature wall, painting your kitchen cabinets is a really easy and affordable way to freshen up your home. All you need is a pot of paint and a brush and you’re ready to go!

Neaten up your space with pretty storage boxes

If you’re not blessed with plenty of storage cupboards, use pretty storage boxes or trunks to neaten up your home. Not only will they help with organisation they also look pretty cool too.

Add a rug

Rugs are a great way to make a home feel more homely and also fab for hiding any stains or scuffs. Again, you don’t need to spend loads of money to get a nice rug – Ikea and plenty of local supermarkets sell them at very reasonable prices.

Use your bookshelf

Whether you’re an avid bookworm or not, bookshelves are a great way to add colour and coolness to a home. Try to organise your books by colour or alphabetical order to make it look more appealing.

Check out your local charity shop

Finally, don’t discount your local charity shop. Buying pre-loved furniture is a great way to save money. You can also find some pretty unique pieces that you can’t find anywhere else!
