DIY Design Hacks: Affordable Ways to Transform Your Home


Transforming your home in a big way doesn’t have to break the bank.

With a little creativity and some DIY design hacks, you can give your space a fresh, gorgeous makeover without spending a lot of money.

Believe it or not, there are affordable and easy-to-implement design ideas that can breathe new life into your home, allowing you to create a space that reflects your personal style and creativity while staying within your budget.


Paint magic

A fresh coat of paint can seriously work wonders in transforming the look and feel of a room!

Choose colors that complement your desired aesthetic and help to create the ambiance that you want. Keep in mind that lighter shade can make a room feel more spacious, while bold colors add character and drama.

An accent wall could also add some visual interest to a room– or even just repainting some of your furniture with an exciting shade. With nothing but some brushes and a can of paint, you can achieve a remarkable transformation within your space.

Creative wall art

Gorgeous, personalized wall art can be affordable!

Frame and display cherished family photographs and then create a gallery wall with a mixture of different frames and artwork. 

While custom framing can get pricey, virtually every thrift store in the country has a great selection of old picture frames. Choosing many different styles can help you accomplish an eclectic look– and if you want to keep it a little more consistent, you can always paint them all the same color.

Plus, nothing’s stopping you from getting creative and breaking out the brushes and canvas to create some wall art of your own. No need to paint the next great masterpiece– a simple, graphic piece with colors that vibe with the rest of your space can look amazing.

Wall art is a great option for changing up a space on a budget because there’s so much room for experimentation, and if you get sick of it, it’s very easy to simply change it out!

Revamp with fabrics

Introducing new textiles to your space can help you to instantly update your home decor. Swap out your throw pillows, curtains, or tablecloths to bring some fresh colors and patterns into your space.

If you’ve got a little more money to spare, consider reupholstering some of your older furniture or investing in some rugs to inject a little personality into your space without the price tag that accompanies a major home improvement project.

Lighting is key

Great lighting can instantly transform the ambiance of a room. Rather than relying on overhead lighting, designate strategic lighting throughout the room to ensure that there’s light where it’s needed while giving the room some dimension and visual intrigue.

You can also opt for energy-efficient LED bulbs to save on electricity costs even while adding lighting solutions like table or floor lamps to your space.
