By painting a room, you can change the decor and atmosphere instantly and at a very low cost.

First, choose a color.

Here are some examples of how our personalities are expressed through color.

Warm vs. Cool Colors

Warm colors invite you into the room with a sense of welcome, warmth and intimacy.

Warm colors make a small room seem smaller and a large room more intimate and cozy.

Cool colors are soothing and tranquil, harmonious and fresh. They are calm and soothing serene shades that make a space appear larger, particularly in its tints of light blue. Cool hues are great for rooms that have natural sunlight.

Before buying paint, go to a paint supply or hardware store and ask for paints that people have ordered and then don't like them or for paints that have been prepared by mistake.

You can find a gallon of paint for as low as $5.00. In some instances, you can find free gallons that have been returned by customers who don't ask for a refund and the small paint stores give them away for free.

2. Curtains

You can change your curtains for as little as $5.00 each by purchasing bedsheets. For example, when I redecorated my bedroom, I purchased 4 bedsheets for $20. I also purchased curtain hooks and a rod for $10 because I didn't want to sew new curtains.

If you don't want to spend money on a rod, you can purchase a PVC tube, paint it and use it as a curtain rod.

3. Accessorizing

Look throughout your house and choose tables, lamps, framed pictures, candles and other accessories that you like and put them in that room you are redecorating.

This is a simple and very cost effective method to change the decor without spending any money. You'll be amazed at how different the room will look with things you have around your house.

See, you can change the decor for as little as $35.

Paint - $5.00
Curtains - $5 each (The total amount spent will depend on how windows you have)
Curtain rod and hooks - $10
