Adding Colour to Your Room on a Budget 

Who ever said that you need to be rich to have a beautifully put together room? And does it always have to be just by using paint? There are so many things you can do to colour your world without having to spend a lot of money.

First, let’s talk about your budget. Many of the items you need to give life to a room will cost some money. These items include paint, wall art, rugs, and various decorative items. Although painting or sponge-painting add colour and texture to the walls, these may not be the best choice as they are the more expensive and more permanent choice. You'll have to buy paint and materials, find someone to do the job, and so on.

We know that white walls can look dull in a new apartment or home. There's also the challenge of finding the right hue to create your desired mood in a room, or you might not have a lot of money to spend for paint. So what are your other options?

Here are a few of the solutions to your ”boring room” problem. Spruce up any room at a low cost with the following ideas.

Photo Wall

We've already given you the idea of creating a photo wall, now is the time to apply it. Photos instantly add colour to your home. Also, picture frames come in various materials, textures, shapes, and picture capacity. These can do wonders for your home so get creative and experiment. 


Some people add paintings to their walls to create a focal point in a room. It definitely makes a statement! There are many affordable and interesting artworks that can be found online. Or better yet, you can create one. Paintings show your personality and give life to your room. The difference it makes in a room will surprise you. 


This is a cheaper and easier alternative. Just apply them on your walls and instantly change the look and feel of your entire room. Since they are similar to stickers and adhere to most smooth surfaces, adding wall decals is a “less permanent” but still a good way to add zing to your dull white room. Choose a theme and see if there are available designs online. These days, there are a lot of suppliers in the market selling wall decals in different shapes and sizes. If you can’t find what you like in stores or online, you can always have it custom made.

Carpets and Rugs

Adding a vibrant rug to a lifeless room can make a difference. It can dramatically change the feel of your home and make the space look brand new. You can use an area rug as the center point in the room by choosing one in bright colours or patterns! Not only does it make your home more lively, it also helps designate the functions of your living space, especially if you have a tiny home. You can go crazy and use your favorite animal prints to make it extra.

You see, there are many things you can do to add color into your home. And you don’t have to spend that much. A lot of these ideas can be found at thrift stores and garage sales or you can even do it yourself.
