Remodeling a room in your home can feel like an extreme test of patience and financial savvy, but it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg (or months of your time) to make any space feel like new.


Reduced-price redecorating

Dollar stores and discount retailers are gold mines for inexpensive pieces you can use to upgrade any space. Think throw pillows, rugs, and faux plants and flowers, which breathe life without the expense.

A touch of paint

The best thing about paint is that it’s relatively inexpensive and a little goes a long way. Just one gallon of paint is enough to repaint a bathroom or other small space. You can even use it to give cabinets, shelves, hardware, and other surfaces, a makeover.

All about the accents

Does your room have large windows? Make sure you opt for light, breezy curtains to maximize the natural light. Is your coffee table the most beloved piece of furniture you own? Don’t tuck it away behind a table runner or large centerpiece that can add clutter—let the best parts of the room speak for themselves without excessive additions.

10-minute tips

  • Declutter—clearing a space of built up, unnecessary items can make it look like new in no time!
  • Rearrange items in your space to help you feel refreshed.
  • Add bits of greenery (flowers or plants) to add a little life.
  • Break out the trusty duster, and watch as your room is instantly brighter!
