Frugal Budget Decorating Tips



Limit the number of accessories in the room, and avoid any appearance of clutter. 


Keep color light on the wall, and make sure the ceiling is painted white.


Use small scale furniture in small rooms.  Armless chairs provide seating without taking up space.


Bring as much light into the room as possible.  Keep draperies pulled back from the window. 


Use mirrors to visually expand space. 


Multipurpose as many items as possible, such as using coffee tables with storage, and bookcases as end tables.


Take advantage of walls and hang shelves for storage and display. If you need a lot of shelf space, put it all together instead of spreading it throughout the room.  Use one wall, and put up floor to ceiling shelves.  If the wall has a door, continue the shelving over the door.
