You do not have to have a lot of money in order to design a great room. Great accessories and things do not have to cost a lot of money. You can find lots of things for your home or office at great prices. Decorating your home should be fun and take after your personality and taste. You can do this on any budget. Donít think you have to change everything in a room to make major changes in your life and in your home, you can make changes that are drastic by changing the walls, the rugs, and so much more!

If you need to find furniture but you do not have a lot to spend, you can find really great stuff at discount stores, flea markets, and even garage sales, sometimes you will come across great furniture if you mention to your friends you need something, and who know they may have something extra for your home!

Just because furniture is at these places, such as the yard sales and discount stores, does not mean that they are junk. Sometimes people just need a change and they give away their old stuff to these places for others to buy. You would be surprised at the great buys you can find here for very little money. Sometimes all you have to do is clean them up a little and they will be like brand new again.

If you cannot find anything here, you can always go to any furniture store and buy the basic couch, chair, and table or accent piece and turn it into your own. There are plenty of great pieces at these stores that are inexpensive. If they do not match your theme, you can paint or change them to make them your own. You can make or buy slipcovers for chairs or couches to make them what you want.

Shop around at garage and yard sales. You will be amazed at the great bargains you will find at them. Someone elseís junk could be your treasure. You may just find something that you have been looking for only a fraction of the cost. If you get it home and decide it is not right for your room, you can get rid of it. After all you did not pay much for it to begin with.

If you cannot afford much for your room right now, you can always just go with a fresh coat of paint. Changing the paint in a room can give it a whole new look. It maybe just what you need to spruce it up for now until you can buy the other things that you want. You can get as creative as you want with paint and not have to spend a lot of money. Paint each room different. Add some designs or special touches to the walls for texture. Try sponge painting your walls or painting one wall different in the room. Just a little change will go along way.

If you do not have any money to spend right now, you can take pieces from other rooms and add them somewhere else. Mix and match your furniture and accessories. This can be a fun way to redecorate your home and not have to worry about buying anything.
