Sometimes it feels like the decorating process is never ending. You may suddenly find inspiration or feel an urge to change something, but what you want may not be in your budget. There are lots of ways that you can decorate without breaking the bank. A quick method to ensure a new look is by keeping your window glass clean.

Paint is a classic makeover potion. Instead of repainting the whole room, just paint one wall in a focal color or paint a contrasting rectangular corner above the sofa to use gallery space. You can also paint the wall behind the bookshelves or paint your ceiling in a lighter version of the wall.

Small paintings and knick-knacks can change the look of a wall completely. Try your hand at some tie-and-dye or paper mache. Strategic lighting decisions like the placement of ceiling lamps, and using spots and floor lamps can drastically alter the look and feel of your living space.

Useful tip: Install mirrors opposite windows, dark doorways, or narrow spaces like hallways to create the illusion of space.
