Home Decorating on a Budget

April 06, 2018

Celebrate National Decorating Month in April by freshening up your home décor! Whether you’re looking to do a complete overhaul or just to modernize and update certain spaces, Dollar General is sharing ideas for affordable design essentials to get your home looking magazine-ready!

Wall Art and Shelves
It’s all in the details! Find affordable and unique wall art at your local Dollar General or online at dollargeneral.com. If you’re looking to add a personal touch, consider adding family photos to the wall. Use simple frames to create a photo gallery wall by arranging them in a collage layout. Shelving can also be a great way to add design elements to the space by adding picture frames, clocks or small plants like succulents.

Baskets can go beyond organization and can be a great way to add decor to a room while serving multiple uses. Use them to fill an empty space in a room and serve as an accent piece. Store your favorite books and keep them tucked away next to the couch or underneath a side table. Roll or fold towels and keep them on display in the bathroom. Baskets can be a functional piece for any room in the house.


Vignettes, or groupings, can showcase your favorite design pieces on tables, shelves or dressers. Place a decorative tray on a coffee table and add a few focal pieces like a jar filled with potpourri, a vase filled with flowers, books or candles. Add different layers of heights and width to make your vignette balanced.

Decorative pillows:
Pillows are an easy way to add color, texture and patterns to a room. They can easily be switched out throughout the seasons to give a room a fresh look all year long. Consider adding pillows with a variety of texture and sizes to sofas and loveseats, chairs, beds, window seats and benches.

Window treatments
Window treatments are the perfect finishing touch for your spring refresh! For added height, hang the rod and curtains a bit higher than the actual window. This will give the allusion of higher ceilings. If you’re looking to brighten up a room, try lighter colors like these white curtains. The natural light from outside will bounce off the fabric to make the room glow!
