Work with what you got

The last thing you want is to blow your tiny budget on something that it’s not worth it. Before you start purchasing new stuff, take a look at what you already have and use it. A splash of paint works miracles for outdated or slightly damaged furniture. It can also help create more coherent appeal by using similar stain to make furnishing pieces match better, for example.

Embrace your artistic side

Save some money and create your own piece of art. Go online for some inspiration. From painting canvases to hanging plates on the wall, you have endless possibilities. Whether it is a print or a painting, you can unleash your creativity. Think of an inexpensive alternative to framing if you plan to use one.

Add some plant life

Plants work well in every setup and will bring a fresh tinge into your decor. Plus, they are pretty good at cleaning the indoors air. Even if you are not very passionate about gardening, you can pick some low-maintenance greenery, such as succulents. Ask friends to give you cuttings from their amazing plants. The other option is to grow greenery from seeds. Go creative with the display of your plants – hang them or arrange them in clusters to compensate for the lack of big greenery.
