If you can't spring a big-ticket, floor-to-ceiling remodel, don't let that stifle your decorating enthusiasm. With these inexpensive decor ideas, just a few small changes make rooms seem brand-new.
1) Swing-Arm Lamp
Brightening your day is a little easier with an adjustable light straight out of a Pixar short. The mini-me is not included, however.
Marbled patterns are popping everywhere from phone cases to nail art — and your sofa should be no exception. Besides, it's way cheaper than installing new countertops.
3) Peppy Clock
If you're going to run late, you might as well do it in style. Fluorescent clock hands pop out from across the kitchen for those moments when you're really in a hurry.
No green thumb needed. This petite ceramic pot also fits a decorative candle, in case your "weekly" waterings happen more like once a month.
Find the motivation you need to finally sort through the mail pile. Ahh, so that's what a clean desk looks like.
It may or may not be the secret to happiness at home, but either way Himalayan salt looks gorgeous aglow. Cue the mood lighting.
Wrangle tiny studs (and those constantly-disappearing earring backs) with a clever catchall. Oh, and this one's pretty enough to sit on your nightstand.
Even a few blooms can take center stage in this quick display. With eight teeny tubes, each sprig stands alone (and upright!) without any fuss.
No need for stencils. These peel-and-stick polka dots pep up a kid's room — or your own, no judgement — without a permanent paint job.
10) Bread Box
You won't mind losing a smidge of counter space to this storage tin. No more stale bagels and some kitchen eye candy? Chalk that up to a win.
Hop on the hygge trend and snuggle up under a cozy blanket. Don't forget to make a cup of tea!
Let's be real. The kitchen island hosts more dinners than the actual dining room. These industrial-style stools add more seating in a pinch, and easily stack up when meal time's over.
Paperwork has met its match. Dotting your I's and crossing your T's doesn't seem so bad with a neon pen in hand.
14) Agate Coasters
Coffee table rings don't stand a chance against these pretty stone slices. Now if only you could get guests to use them...
Free up some space in the linen closet with a vertical display for towels or blankets. Plus, there's a designated spot for each family member's washcloth.
A little shimmer never hurts. Setting the table or grabbing the coffee, unexpected hardware adds a glam factor to the daily routine.
17)Pop of Paint
Before you chuck leftover wall paint (or a pint-sized store sample!), refresh the frame of an old chair. There was a reason you loved that color in the first place.
18) Casual Runner
Skip the tablecloth and set the table with a casual runner instead. The dining room feels lighter and brighter already.
Upgrade dresser pulls with pretty fabric swatches. It's a pop of pattern you'll notice, even when you're fumbling for that matching sock.
Pink light bulbs cast a soothing, flattering glow that transforms a bedroom into a boudoir.
A trio of suede trays, which unsnap to store flat, merge form and function on any bedside table.
22)Printed Dish Towel
Waffle-weave cotton printed with paisley adds a hit of pattern to dish drying.
23)Paint With Pow
The speediest way to give a room a new look on the cheap: Paint an accent wall a high-contrast color — here, we used Waterfall Blue on the wall behind the sofa (so you don't have to face it from every angle). All you need is a single quart to make the transformation.
A 14-inch-long magnetic strip turns any spare wall into command central, holding notes, invites, etc.
25) Clutter Control
A chic touch that beats huddling around a phone: This clean-lined album holds 24 photos between its linen-bound pages.
Bring home a bit of the beach with seashell-motif coasters; the quartet is made of shatterproof, dishwasher-safe melamine.
