While things are improving in our economy, most still watch the budget when it comes to changing home décor. There are a few tricks of the trade that will give you the opportunity to options that can be creative without a lot of money from the wallet.

There are plenty of treasures that, with a touch of your creativity, can be a statement of your unique personality

Shop the Thrift Stores

This may be an old message, but more people are donating items including furniture that are much sturdier than current products. It also gives you a chance to add a touch of whimsy or even repurpose through painting. Using broken ceramic tiles or dishes that are inlaid as a table top has become the latest rage. Spend a little extra on the accessories such as pillows or a great wall print. These can be changed out when you decide to change up on color schemes.

Go Beyond the Traditional

Expand your imagination! This means altering the purpose and switching it to something new. An old piano top can be gutted, hung on the wall and with a few shelves it becomes an incredible bookcase. If you have limited space, use stackable containers so that you are building ‘up’ and not spread out. You might not be a fan of garage sales, but there are plenty of treasures that, with a touch of your creativity, can be a statement of your unique personality.
