Regardless of whether it has gone out of fashion, you no longer like it, or it reminds you of something unsightly—there are many reasons to decorate your home or living room differently. For most of us, when we want something new, small changes are the order of the day. Who can afford completely new furniture and accessories? But that doesn't matter at all, because even with little money you can achieve impressive results that even interior designers are enthusiastic about.

We have put together 28 ideas for you that are cheap and easy to imitate. In addition, most of them can be easily changed again if you no longer like them.

Stay tuned!

Before we start: The classic

Do you want to set up anew? Before we introduce you to our great furnishing tips and tricks, let's remind you once again of the classic: pillows and home textiles such as blankets immediately create a new ambience in your living room and bedroom. No matter whether you prefer colourful cushions or muted colours, there are no limits to your taste.

Set up comfortably and spend little money: that's entirely possible. Furnishing and sprucing up a new or existing apartment is a lot of fun for us. We find projects that can be carried out cost-effectively particularly impressive. Furnishing cheaply and creating a new look: that's fun for us! For this reason, we have put together our favourites for you on how you can beautify any room.
