9 Designer Tips for Decorating on a Budget

Decorating on a budget

With the current rise in inflation and the average costs of goods and services going up, we wanted to give you some tips on decorating with a budget. The Corken and Company team is here for all your household needs!


Turn Cutting Boards Into Kitchen Art:

If you have cutting boards to spare, hang them on your kitchen walls as affordable artwork. This can add a splash of design genius with items you already own and do not need to purchase. 


Look for Art in Unusual Places:

Instead of buying brand-new art, browse local flea markets and garage sales. These are great places to find unique and cheap pieces for your home. 


Embrace an Accent Wall:

Wallpaper can do wonders for your bedroom. Save money by grabbing just one roll and creating an accent wall. 


Disguise Outdated Bathroom Tile:

If you’re not totally in love with your bathroom floor, try disguising the tile with an oversized area rug. This will allow for a new fresh look without any renovation costs.


Old Loveseat or Bench:

Don’t throw out that old loveseat or cushioned bench just yet. Instead, move it to the foot of your bed and watch how it instantly elevates the space. 


Salvaged Chairs:

Save money on a new dining set by outfitting your table with salvaged chairs. You can paint the chairs or reupholster them and make your area feel brand new! 


Get Creative With Side Tables:

Traditional nightstands can be surprisingly expensive. You can find good pieces on facebook marketplace or at garage sales. Adding a splash of paint and new hardware can make all the difference. 


Rearrange Your Books:

Brighten your home on a budget by arranging your books by color. This adds an element of sophistication and charm to any home. 


Find a Canopy for Your Kids’ Room:

Create a stylish reading nook in your child’s bedroom with just a canopy and a floor cushion. This will make their room feel magical at a low cost to you!
