How I’m updating my home without spending a fortune

This post is sponsored by Nuloom.  All opinions are my own. 

Lately I’ve been focusing on making some updates to our home to enjoy this space we live in even more. I’ve been amazed how much more  I enjoy living in our home when it feels updated and modern.  So, here are some ways I’ve been updated our home without spending a fortune:

 Adding artwork

update home on budget

I just added this simple piece to a bare wall in our kitchen and it made that room feel so much different when I walk into it.  You can find some great deals on artwork in the clearance section at places like Target or Home Goods.  I got this personalized piece online for a great price as well.

Artwork makes all the difference in the world with how a room looks and takes it to another level.  The focal point of our living room is also a large piece or art that ties in all the colors in that room.  Without that, the room would feel very different and less welcoming.

 

Updating Rugs

I just added a soft rug to my master bedroom and changed the rug in our dinning room and it’s really upgraded those rooms.  I had a solid, dark color rug in here before but, this design and style has really made this room feel so much more stylish.   When purchasing a carpet, following the sales or purchasing remnants is the way to go.  We have a few local carpet stores that we have purchased remnants from for dirt cheap.

I got this rug from Nuloom, which has a large variety of designs and styles.  They also have fantastic prices to fit any budget.  No matter what your personal style, you can find it here.

Extra tip for all the mamas with little ones : Get an outdoor rug for your dining room.  They are easier to clean with food and they are significantly cheaper.  I love how this rug makes the room feel.

 

 Adding greenery everywhere

I can’t take care of real plants so, I buy fake ones.  I have them in my bedroom, bathroom, dining room, and living room.  Finding simple plants in a white vase like the one pictured above, tends to be my “go-to”.  These are so simple to find at any store and are constantly on sale. Greenery goes a long way in updating a home.

 

Throw pillows

Throw pillows are a beautiful thing.  They can completely change the look of a room.  Whether in your bedroom or living room, throw pillows make a big difference.  It is great to mix & match the patterns to bring some variety and style.  I am actually looking to add some new designs for the summer.

As a stay-at-home mom, I love finding new ways to update my home without breaking the bank. These are some of the things I’ve done to make the biggest difference in the appearance of our home and making it feel more welcoming while still being modern.  I would love to hear your ideas and tips for updating your home without spending a lot of money.  Please comment below!

Excellent tips! I stock up on succulents in the summer (so pretty and they hardly require any work lol), and rugs are a great idea! We’re moving next month into an apartment with wood floors, so we’ll definitely need to invest in some rugs for our sweet pup!
