Don't Break The Bank

Swap Your Scent

This is a small change that will make a huge difference. Swap out your candle, wax warmer or air freshener for a new scent and you’ll be surprised at how it changes the way you feel about your home.

Change Your Frames

Another incredibly simple and affordable change, but again it will make a world of difference. Update both the photos you have up on the wall, or change the frames for different styles, shapes and colours. You can sometimes find great frames at places like Value Village for a fraction of the price!

Get Some New Plants

There’s nothing quite like a plant or some flowers to freshen up a room. Getting a new bouquet on the regular isn’t exactly cost effective, but it sure is beautiful. Succulents are another option that are low cost and low maintenance.

Pick Out Some New Pillows

Tired of looking at the same old couch day in and day out, but a new one isn’t in the budget? Changing the slip covers on your throw pillows is a great, inexpensive way to update your decor seasonally. Pillows these days come in all kinds of fun, different designs so you’re sure to find some that fit your style.
