By Jakemontgomery @LTDOnlineStores

Decorating your home need not be an expensive affair. There are several ways in which you can decorate the home on a shoestring budget. It will not only save you money, but will also give you the satisfaction having a beautiful home. You can buy items online or repurpose other items in a creative manner. Here are some of the top ten ways in which you can decorate your home:

1)   Cut down on the costs of remodeling your kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most expensive remodeling tasks. You should repurpose most of the items that you find in the kitchen, and simply offer them a new coat of paint.

2)   Use every drop of paint

Any paint that you have left over can be used to repaint furniture. You can paint parts of the furniture or create a stencil and paint repeated patterns on it.

Use every drop of paint!

3)   Repurpose old items

There are quite a number of items that people store in the shed or garage. Creatively select a few and repurpose them. An old window can be a creative picture or art frame.

4)   Repair and decorate old furniture

If you want to give your home a new look, simply strip the draping from old furniture and use new ones.

Just because some furniture is old doesn't mean you have to toss it

5)   Buy furniture selectively

Most people buy furniture that can only be used in certain areas. Obtain furniture that you can move around the home in order to create a fresh look.

6)   Be creative with what you have

If you are tired of the pictures on the wall, look for an old magazine and cut out the fresh pictures. Place these in frames and hang them on the wall.

7)   Sell what you have and buy new stuff

You can hold a yard sale to sell items that you do not want. Then, you can use the proceeds to buy items that you do need.

8)   Rearrange items

Rearranging your furniture can make a huge difference in your design

By simply rearranging the items in your house, you can create a whole new look. Moving furniture about is a creative, and cheap way of making your home look fresh.

9)   Budget shopping

If you use large throw pillows on your seats and on the beds, you will make the rooms look more comfortable.

10)  Think ahead

You need to think about the longevity of items that you buy. Make sure that you buy sturdy furniture that will last longer, and which you can repurpose after a number of years.
