You want to buy something beautiful for your home, but don’t have the money to splash out for something truly spectacular. But that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for less and buy something second rate. It’s time to create some stunning things for your home on a budget, without having to worry about how much it comes to.
1. Put Unique Photographs On Canvas.
If you’re artistic (even if you’re not), you can create unique images for statement pieces in your home. If you want to create a sharp edge, you can use software to stack photos (also known as focus stacking). This process is when you take multiple images at different focuses and distance, and then combine the sharp objects to create a clearer image. You can do this with everyday objects to create something truly unique, like photo stacking a macro image of a biro ballpoint pen. Something truly unique from something everyday.
2. Use Old Carpet, Curtain Or Fabric Cut-Offs.
If you’ve got any old fabrics that you won’t be using anytime soon, it’s time to get creative. You can stitch them into throw pillows, blankets, new curtains or even frame them to create an unusual art piece. You can still follow 2020 design trends, but implement them in your own home on a budget. Stacking different cutoffs to create collages can also create colorful bed linens or baby blankets.
3. Creative Shelving Units.
Shelves are an effective and efficient way to add some creativity to your home. You might want to add shelves with an unusual design. If you have old pieces of wood lying around, why not paint, sand and varnish these to create some bespoke shelving units from your home. Floating or geometric design shelving units can also add some artistic flair to your home, without having to invest in expensive art.
4. Mirror, Mirror On The Wall.
Mirrors are the perfect way to fill empty wall spaces in your home. They also lighten up dark spaces and create the illusion of a bigger home. But you can take this one step further by creating your own frames for a mirror. Buy a basic mirror and upgrade it with your own homemade frame, incorporating designs from your home to make it fit in. You might also want to make it stand out by creating a statement wall piece.
5. Create Color.
All you have to purchase is paint to create color in your home. Why not create a mural in your bedroom, or if you’re not quite so artistic, work with a statement wall in your home. Statement walls don’t just have to be painted, they can be wallpaper too. It’s the perfect way to change your home without worrying about forking out too much money, as one simple wallpaper or paint can make a big difference to the feel and perception of a room.
You can create beautiful art and upholstery for your home without breaking the bank. Start simple with some photography and painting if you’re not sure, before building up to creating your own furniture or art walls.
