Everyone has their own version of their dream home. Others may even go as far as making a vision board for the details they want for their house. Some people have a simpler taste, dreaming of cozy tiny houses with earth tones and upcycled furniture. While others dream of a house on the more lavish side with the hardwood floors, motion-activated lighting, and quartz countertops in Salt Lake City, Utah.

If you’re one of these people who would like a home with a more luxurious feel, then you know you’d have to spend some bucks to achieve your dream house goals. If you’re on a budget, then worry not! There are a lot of simple ways to turn a house into your dream home. With creativity and a bit of resourcefulness, you can achieve your goals.

1. Get Crafty With Pillows

Throw pillows make a good statement piece, especially when they’re on plain couches. The patterns give the room an instant pop of color. However, most throw pillows are more expensive than they should be. It wouldn’t be so practical for people on a budget to splurge on something so trivial as a pillow. But, there’s a way around this.

If scouring Pinterest is what you for leisure then it’s time to bust out your best DIY skills. Be on the lookout for scrap fabric at fabric outlets and have a tailor turn them into a throw pillow. Not only will you be able to save money but you’ll also be able to customize what your throw pillow will look like.

2. Let The Curtains Hit The Floor

Using curtains can either be a hit or a miss when trying to make a room or a home look fancier. The key is to use curtains that properly fit. Meaning, using curtains that reach the floor and cover the full length of the window. If you settle for using curtains that don’t fully cover the entire window and don’t reach the floor, you run the risk of making the windows look cheap.

There are a lot of simple ways to turn a house into your dream home. With creativity and a little bit of resourcefulness, you can achieve your goals.

3. You Can Never Go Wrong With Art

If you feel like your living room or kitchen or bedroom feels underwhelming then chances are, there aren’t any attention-grabbing pieces present in the room. If you have the time, try to look for large pieces of art at thrift stores or garage sales. Adding an oversized piece of artwork to an otherwise barren wall is sure to give your room a more luxe feel.

However, be sure to skip the generic scenes and go for something abstract. Even better, if you really want to put in an effort, try to block off an entire afternoon to make your own artwork. Aside from saving money, you’ll also be able to channel your inner artist.

Conclusion: You don’t need to spend all your life savings in one go to achieve the house of your dreams. With a bit of hard work, creative thinking, and a few trips to the thrift store that vision you have will surely become a reality.

If you’re on a budget and don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on curtains then you can always buy your own fabric and have a tailor make curtains for you. Just be sure to properly measure your windows beforehand.
