Don't despair if you are short on cash. You can still have a beautiful home that you can easily sell through these affordable and easy decorating tips and tricks.

Decorating Indoors

Simple things can make a big difference. You can change the entire look and feel of a room by just changing the window treatments. New drapes or blinds add warmth and appeal and instantly give your home a fresh and inviting new look.

If that's not enough, a fresh coat of paint transforms any room. Paint is one of the least expensive home decorating tools, and you can save even more money by doing it yourself instead of hiring a painter.

If your furniture looks worn, adding new throw pillows in vibrant colors that either match or contrast your room's theme can make a world of difference, and help your old furniture regain its appeal.

The bathroom is the second most commonly remodeled room in the house (after the kitchen), but it can cost a lot of money to replace cabinets, fixtures, or tile. Simple things can help give your bathroom a face-lift: add candles for a lovely glow and inviting fragrance. Get new towels to hang and repaint walls. Re-grout any tiled areas for a fresh new feel.

Decorating Outdoors

Coming home from a long day of work to a worn-out looking home can be a downer. Add some hanging baskets of flowers or vines by the door and trim your path with a flowerbed or decorative stone. Apply a little labor and repaint the trim on windows and doors to give your home a quick lift.
