Estimated Cost
The décor makeover would cost just $300-400, with wise planning, coordinating and executing.

Don’t go broke, Try this:

1. Use large scale items
Instead of using numerous smaller objects, use a single larger object, example: a huge portrait or hang a rug or quilt, it also makes the room look bigger and spacious.

2. Mirrors
The use of mirrors of different shapes and sizes adds not just a touch of style, but also makes the room look spacious. Buy plain mirror, quadrilateral in shape without any side designs or panels, glue mosaic chips or chips on them, pick your own colors mix and match. A mirror mounted on mosaic gives a room widening effect.

3. Artwork
Imagine a rectangular space in having a focal center in your wall; fill this space with variant arts, crafts, portraits and clocks. It gives a ‘sprinkle’ effect to your room, making it look more spacious rather than cluttered.

4. Paper/ fabrics
If you don’t a huge painting or portrait to mount on the wall, use significant paper with abstract designs. You can also use fabrics or rugs, which are geometrically different to give a visual delight and added dimension to the room.

5. Make good use of old records
You can pull out all the unwanted old records, which are scratched and deemed useless, paint these vinyl records with vibrant colors of paint and mount them on your wall. A contrast color scheme would look very chic on your walls.

6. Collages
Collages of old memories, are like a wall mount scrapbook, with photos, pieces of paper with oodles of memories, fabrics etc glued on a larger poster, can be framed to protect it from dust. It visually looks uber cool, with an added sentimental touch, which gives your wall and your room more value.

7. Frames
You can always or never make a mistake indulging on frames for your wall. The trick lies in making your own frames, to stick within your budget.
