The LGBTQ community waited for too long to finally have the right to get married. When it happened, it gave a collective sigh of relief. It offered everyone an opportunity to marry the perfect one. While going through that hurdle was already challenging, there are more difficulties faced by newly wedded couples. Home decoration is one of them. Moving into a new house takes a lot, and it’s challenging for everyone, including gay couples. It’s usually the financial aspect that makes everything terrible. These tips are useful for those who want to decorate a new house without spending a lot.

Repaint the house

Sure, repainting is expensive, especially if it involves the entire property. However, it will also last a long time. When the house gets repainted, it will look amazing. There are easy to follow DIY techniques for people who don’t want to spend a lot on labor costs.

Consider cheap laminated floor

Imagine the transformation of your house with a laminated floor. It will feel like you’re in a hotel. The best part is that you can find cheap laminate floors. You can improve your place without going beyond the budget.


Be creative in using accessories to transform an ordinary house. Use pillows, rugs, lamps, and carpets to spruce up the place. If the floor area got worn out, a new rug could help cover it. If the table doesn’t look good, a new lamp will take the attention away from it. Accessorising can do wonders.

Try to upcycle

This strategy also involves creativity. You turn things that you’re about to throw away into something useful. For instance, you can turn empty cans into utensils holder. You can also make a bath mat using excess corks. If you have old Legos, you can turn them into fun decorations.

Hang a wall art

The good thing about having wall art is that it instantly transforms the room. It elevates the appearance and makes it look more luxurious. However, instead of buying expensive art pieces, you can find something cheap. You may also support struggling local LGBTQ artists trying to make a name in the industry.

Use mirrors 

The good thing about having many mirrors at home is that it provides an illusion that your house is bigger. Apart from the practical value of having a mirror, you can also create more depth and space. Choose the perfect shape and size that will match the rest of your home accessories.

Use curtains

When you have curtains at home, you can easily close and open, depending on your needs. If it’s too hot, you can close the curtains. During normal weather, you can open them and see the outdoor area. In doing so, you can create a seamless space between what’s inside your house, and the area outside.

The point is that you have to be creative so you can improve your house without spending a lot of money. You still have plenty of expenses to consider. You don’t want to blow up your savings on home decoration. It might even be a reason why you fight in the future. Home decoration should be an exciting process, especially for newlyweds.
