Ever so often our body and mind desires certain changes in the decoration style of the house. But this is not always possible due to lack of money and constraints regarding purchasing big products. That is why we at Homify have put together some of the best ideas on how to decorate your house with little money. If you want to fill your head with fresh designs then this ideabook will reveal 33 ways of achieving beautiful changes with little money.

1. Change the kitchen floor

Changing your old kitchen floor using coloured tiles whether hydraulic or imitation will give it a spectacular bohemian look.

2. A bench

Replacing several dining chairs with a bench is not only fashionable but it will also allow you to organize large dinner parties comfortably.

3. Vinyls on the wall

Vinyls are a very creative and economical way of remodeling the house with a little budget.  There are many designs that will give you a surreal experience even without leaving the room.

4. A coloured wall

There is nothing that has a greater impact than changing the colour of a wall. Painting a single wall will be enough to give your house a completely different look.

5. Original shelves

If you want to change the appearance of your bedroom you can choose to make your own shelves with boxes of fruit deformed to your liking as seen in the picture.

6. Strings of light

Do not think garlands and chains of lights are just for Christmas. There are colourful luminaries available that can give your room a very homey air.

7. Fill the wall with memories

What better way to decorate your living room than with pictures of your happy moments. You can also hang other personal items such as art made by your family or friends.

8. Opt for contrasts

By introducing a material with strong contrast to the existing one you can mark a remarkable change. For example, use wooden furniture inside a black and white bathroom with ceramic tiles.

9. Design your own showcase

Just like with the shelves, you can also design your own showcase to display the objects you are most proud about.

Choosing furniture of various forms and colours will add some dynamism and joy to your house. That is why designers of this room opted for dining chairs of different colours.

Building a swing in your own bedroom can be a fun way of transforming the space.  Of course, you have to make sure that the structure will withstand the weight and the movement of the swing.

This kitchen would not be the same without those words in front of the sink. They are loose words with different typography. You can also opt for messages that motivate you and fill you with energy each morning.

15. Chalk wall

If you are one of those who draws on the bar napkins, then it may not be a bad idea to design a wall at home where you can write with chalk to unleash your imagination.
