41 Tips for Decorating Your Home on a Small Budget
In this guide, we have put together all of our advice, tips and ideas to help you decorate your house or apartment with a small budget.
Don’t expect quick fixes. There are no secrets or magic tricks to decorate on a small budget, and you will even discover that the first tips are not the most exciting….
We prefer to warn you! But these are important steps to finally decorate cheap and according to your desires, with a limited budget.
The first step!
We will not lie, this is not the stage the most fun. But it may be the most rewarding, once it’s done!
A good decluttering followed by a thorough cleaning of your house will help you to see more clearly. And sometimes, it’s even all you need to give a fresh start to your decor!
declutter allows to start on a good basis for a simple and elegant decoration of the living room
No need to wait for spring to start a big cleaning. If this task seems too important to you, start with a room, and even a part of this room, like the dressing room of your bedroom.
Once you’ve cleared and cleaned up, you can even go a step further and sort through everything you own.
Do you really want to keep these items? To help you in this step, if you are having trouble separating yourself from certain objects, get the best-selling book by Marie Kondo La Magie du Rangement.
For all the things you don’t want to keep, you can give them away, or sell them! A good way to budget for possibly buying new things.
2. Define your objectives
By following this simple and effective way.
An important step to decorate on a small budget. You have to define what your goals are. The more precise, the better!
A good objective will be for example “I want to revamp my living room to bring it a style (to be defined) with a budget of (to be defined), before (date to be defined).
A precise and clear objective is the key to a good cheap makeover. Otherwise, you risk being scattered and discouraged, especially if you have several rooms to decorate.
To help you set and define a good goal, you can use the SMART model :
- S pecific
- M easurable
- A reachable
- R ealistic
- T emporellement defined
By following this model, you set a precise and clearly defined objective.
3. Establish a budget
This is the key.
When you think about it, decorating inexpensively means absolutely nothing! From cheap to one person may be priced out of another. After defining your objectives, take the time to define your budget, according to your objective of course.
You will already see it more clearly when you have decided exactly how much you can afford to spend.
To not feel overwhelmed.
To decorate your home on a small budget, you start with a room and avoid trying to do everything at once!
You may have the goal of redecorating your entire home. If this is the case, we recommend that you split this project into several stages, and start with a single piece.
This will save you from being overwhelmed by too many ideas, or from stressing over all the things to do!
From the start!
You already have a clearer vision, a goal and a budget. This is a very good start. You must now prioritize.
For example, if you want to revamp your living room, you can now decide which essential things you want to replace / buy and which are the lower priority.
Again, the objective of this step is simply to better define your goal, to achieve it more easily.
6. Take a close look
From the ground to the ceiling.
Room by room, from floor to ceiling, take a close look at EVERYTHING you already own. You risk discovering things or objects that you had forgotten!
And as you’ve already sort (step # 1), that are normally the objects decor you want to keep. Which brings us to the next step…
Even if you are not a handyman, get started in DIY!
When we think of cheap decoration, we imagine shopping sessions and good plans.
This is part of it (you will discover below the shops that we recommend for small budgets), but for now, we suggest you ask yourself the following questions :
- can i create this decoration myself ?
- can i recycle the objects / furniture i already have?
- do i have to buy new decor?
To create or recycle decor, there is no shortage of ideas. For all DIY inspirations, we recommend using Pinterest.
If you are not a handyman but want to get started, several solutions:
- the YouTube channels of hobby and DIY
- the tutorials on blogs
- the DIY stores such as Leroy Merlin DIY organize workshops
If you’ve never made anything and think you don’t have the DIY skills to get started, start small.
You can for example put hairpin legs to make a table, or even replace the handles of your furniture with pretty leather handles, this is a detail that will radically change the appearance of your furniture.
Simple and inexpensive DIY ideas for restyling furniture, like installing new leather handles
8. Make a shopping list
It’s already a much more fun step, if you like shopping! In digital format or simply on a notebook, now write down your shopping list.
A shopping list allows you to have a more precise idea of how much everything you would like to buy will cost. And once this shopping list is well defined, you use it to stick to your budget.
Things to know to save money.
The decoration stores sometimes launch destocking operations, on an ad hoc basis. For example, stylish offers is the name of the Maisons du Monde clearance sale just before spring.
The stylish Maisons du Monde offers: a clearance sale on decoration and furniture to decorate your home on a small budget
Private sales of brands
In addition to specialized sites such as Veepee, Showroomprivé or Westwing, some decoration and furniture brands also offer private sales.
In the world of cheap decoration, this is for example the case with Maisons du Monde private sales, which are still very popular! To take advantage of these private sales, you generally must already be a customer.
Decoration stores like Alinea organize private sales for their customers. A good opportunity to buy decoration and furniture at reduced prices.

On the MadeInDesign online store, it’s a good plan that comes up regularly. We will try to inform you about homedecorh as soon as this offer is available.
The principle is simple, and allows you to buy cheap designer furniture, with slight defects (such as scratches for example).
The shop participates all year long in fairs and events, and since these pieces of furniture and decorative objects have already been used, Madeindesign.com offers discounts of up to 50%.
At Madeindesign.com: decorative objects and exhibition design furniture sold at attractive prices
At the moment, for example, the E27 pendant lamp by the Muuto brand is € 39.94 instead of € 69, because it is an exhibition model. The only problem with this good plan: it is unfortunately not possible to have details on product defects.
In the IKEA store nearest to me, there is a space dedicated to good deals, with furniture that also has slight flaws.
Do not hesitate to ask the sellers of the stores you visit, you can have very good surprises. When I was a student, my roommate had saved 50% on a slightly scratched table, on the underside of the tray, and therefore invisible!
They are many!
Cheap decor isn’t just found in home decor stores, and that’s good news.
For example, for a few years, DIY stores have been launching decorative catalogs, which sometimes have nothing to envy from the collections of specialized shops.
You can also find trendy decor for small budgets on private sales sites, sites for announcements between individuals,… And even discount stores!
The brand Deco cheap help revamp the spaces without spending much money. Besides, discount brands are also getting into decoration.
Beware, however, of impulse purchases! Just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean you have to buy more than you really need or want.
Trendy but not expensive decoration shops
These shops are generally Dutch or Nordic, and when they land in France, they are a hit!
Their advantage ? Constantly renewed catalogs with lots of small decorative items at very affordable prices.
The SØSTRENE GRENE decoration shop: lots of objects, accessories and small furniture to decorate the inexpensive house

Here is a list of the inexpensive decoration stores that we recommend:

Favorite of the editorial staff homedecorh, the decoration shop at Monoprix Maison ( www.monoprix.fr/maison ). Accessories and objects both trendy and at very affordable prices. During the Monoprix sales, you can even take advantage of discounts of up to 70%.
Fashion brands getting into decoration
They offer accessible fashion catalogs, and embark on decoration, which is also accessible.
The H&M Home shop: a very complete catalog for the home (decorative items, linens, dishes…) and very accessible for small budgets
It is a trend that we see more and more in the world of cheap decoration, these brands and signs take advantage of their notoriety to launch collections for the house.
Some like Pimkie Home don’t last, unfortunately, but there are alternatives. Here are some boutiques, originally fashion, that we recommend to buy cheap and trendy decor.
- H&M Home

- Urban Outfitters
These brands regularly offer new collections to decorate the house. The H&M Home brand has even launched a small furniture catalog, an interesting and accessible IKEA alternative for lamps, coffee tables, stools…
These brands deemed cheap and low end are also launching in the field of decoration and development. And some even manage to develop the highly anticipated catalogs by fans of deco.
At GIFI for example, their decor catalog is very successful with people looking to buy trendy decor without spending a lot of money.

The low-cost specialist Cdiscount.com also offers a very complete decoration department. Obviously, do not expect to buy decorative items or furniture that will last for years.
We recommend that you visit stores to get a better idea of the quality of the products, and thus avoid possible disappointments.

Private sales sites
Private sales are certainly less popular than a few years ago. You can still find great deals there to buy cheap decor.
Do not forget the good plans and discounts from private sales sites to decorate and furnish your home on a small budget
There are even private sales sites specializing in the world of home, interior design and decoration.

13. Know when to buy what
From January to December.
Another way to decorate your home inexpensively is simply to know when to buy what, to take advantage of the best prices!
For example, stores generally offer great discounts on linens with the arrival of spring.
To buy a sofa, it is better to wait for the sales, or Black Friday. If you want to make big savings on the Christmas decor, we recommend that you buy all the accessories in January! You are getting a lot ahead, but the reductions are very interesting.
If you are coming or planning a move, you can take advantage of an operation like Black Friday to buy everything you are going to need. A new mattress, a sofa, household appliances,…
You will find a summary, month by month, in our guide when to buy what.
To not miss anything!
Here at homedecorh, since the launch of the site, we have been trying to find and regularly share good decor plans. We try, because it is not an easy thing!
Promotions are no longer limited to sales. From January to December, the consumer is bombarded with offers, discounts and promotions.
Good decor plans exist. Throughout the year, it is possible to find discounts and promotions at Zara Home, H&M Maison, GIFI, HEMA, La Redoute Interiors…
For retailers and shops, everything is now a pretext for offering discounts. The new year, spring, vacation departures, back to school, brand anniversaries,… Not to mention the big promotional events such as Black Friday or new initiatives to compete with it, such as the French Days.
For the consumer, it is ultimately less and less clear to know exactly if they are real good plans or not. And even in our case, it is sometimes difficult to sort out.
But good plans exist! The only thing to remember is not to rush into overly enticing offers. You will always have the opportunity to find a similar offer.
To follow the news of all these good plans and know who offers what at the moment, we recommend that you bookmark this page. You can also consult our tips section.
These are 2 good resources to keep you regularly informed of current discounts and promotions.
Good plans exist, but to follow them is already more complicated. You can subscribe to all the newsletters from your favorite decoration stores, but you certainly don’t want to receive even more emails!
Here at homedecorh, we search, sort and select the good plans that are worth the most. You can follow them in several ways:
- the good deals section : which brings together all the articles and guides on this subject
- the good deals page : updated daily with the best offers of the moment
- the balances section
- the Black Friday section
15. Buy used
Forget your prejudices!
10 minutes from my home is an association which works on the same principle as Emmaus. This place is huge!
There is a choice, but you have to sort it out, a lot of sorting, to sometimes find nothing at all. But we can also come across very good surprises, things to recycle and transform.
A while ago, I was looking to buy a metal shelf from the HAY brand. At over 200 €, it was out of budget. And during my visit to the association’s warehouse, I found 2 shelves with a very similar look. They were just a little rusty, on sale for 45 € both.
I take note to make the measurements at home, and when I return to the warehouse, the shelves were sold! All that to say that sometimes, we can have good surprises, but that it is better to seize the opportunity when it presents itself.
You can also do online scouting to buy second-hand. Sites like LeBonCoin or Ebay are to be consulted regularly.
If you have a Facebook account, the marketplace section is also a good source for finding and buying cheap decor.
Here is a list of sites to buy used decor :
On certain things, it is important.
We have already spotted sofas under € 100, with the various offers and promotions, for example during Black Friday. The price is necessarily tempting, but you also have to face the facts.
Decorating and furnishing your home inexpensively is possible, but for certain rooms, such as the sofa, it is recommended to focus on quality, and therefore to invest a sufficient budget
For some rooms and especially for furniture, it is sometimes wise to invest more money so as not to have to replace a few months later, or worse, simply regret your purchase.
Investing in what really matters is a matter of common sense and experience!
17. FTE: Be Always Ready
And on the lookout!
The best way to come across a beautiful and inexpensive decorative object is to stay in the research phase every day.
Always be ready to find the small piece of furniture or accessory that will make the difference in your interior.
It is advisable to keep an open mind and especially to understand that beautiful decor is not only found in the shops everyone is talking about.
You just have to get started!
It costs nothing to ask. The next time you spot a decorative item or piece of furniture that you like, but would like to buy but is out of budget, simply ask the seller for a discount.
You will of course suffer a lot of failures, I prefer to warn you, and I speak from experience! But you can have good surprises.
The seller can for example tell you that this object will soon be reduced, or that there is an older and cheaper model …
You may have surprises.
Sometimes what we want to buy at any cost is available in the attic or cellar of our neighbors. If you do not ask, nobody will know that you are looking for a new vase, a frame, a coffee table,…
Just ask around you, your friends, your colleagues and your family.
Wall decor in action.
We all know that wall decoration can transform the atmosphere and decoration of an apartment or house. In the living room, but also in the bedroom and even in the bathroom or kitchen.
An art gallery or wall art transforms spaces, but such a project can be expensive to set up, if you consider the purchase of already framed pieces.

The washing machine, the dryer, it’s not the best way to highlight your decor, especially if you don’t have a laundry room in a dedicated room. Consider hiding or even revamping your household appliances.
Revamp your fridge, hide everyday “ugly objects” to enhance your decor
In the kitchen for example, cover the fridge with an adhesive or a slate paint. Then decorate with chalk, leaving notes, the menu of the day, the shopping list,…

Another example, for outdoor spaces. Replace an expensive garden furniture with a pallet garden furniture. You will have to do a little DIY, but nothing too complicated.
You can even choose to accumulate a few pallets and simply put cushions or pallet mattresses on them.
34. Playing with the multifunction
1 object, several uses
With the lack of space at home as an increasingly important subject, a single object is no longer satisfied with a single use.
We are now looking for practical and multifunctional accessories, to save space in the kitchen for example. The furniture also become multi-purpose.
For your bedroom, you can for example use a lamp that turns into a bedside table, with a built-in book and book holder. Discover these 25 practical, intelligent and multifunctional lamps.

Be creative and don’t hesitate to rethink the use of the furniture around you.
35. Rethinking spaces
Before buying new things for your house or apartment, take the time to rethink your spaces.
Move your sofa, take the floor lamp from the living room to use it in the bedroom, use a chair from your kitchen as a new bedside table…
Speaking of creative spirit!

40. Take the time
It may take time, and that’s normal.
Here is a Zen decoration tip! If it helps, consider decorating your interior like a marathon rather than a sprint. Everything in its time.
Your satisfaction will be even greater! In addition, it allows you to avoid making mistakes or to rush into an idea that will no longer be to your liking in a few months…
Not everything is perfect, and that’s OK.
If you want to do too much, you end up… Doing nothing! You have to accept that everything is not perfect at home, and that is what defines your home, it is the personal touch of your house or your apartment.
Also take into account the fact that decorating your home is a long-term project.
Here at homedecorh, we are well placed to find out. By visiting sites like Pinterest or browsing the pages of decorative magazines, you will have the impression that everything is perfect in others… It’s inspiring, but if you try to reproduce the same thing at home, it can become discouraging! Especially if you are absolutely looking to follow the latest decor trends of the moment.
Just accept the fact that not everything has to be perfect from the start. A beautiful house or a beautiful apartment decorates and develops over time.
Start somewhere, even if it’s a small decorative detail or a simple paint on a piece of furniture, it’s the most important!
