Three Tips for Sprucing up Your Space – Frugal Novice

Three Tips for Sprucing up Your Space


We love our home, and one of my favorite things to do is to find ways to make it unique and special for our family. We’ve added a reclaimed wood wall and a large vintage-style chalkboard as just two ways of making our house our own.

Decorating is fun, but it can also be hard to find time to do lengthy projects. Since we’re so busy, it’s crucial for us to find ways to make an impact without having to spend a ton of time working on the updates.

Even if you don’t have a lot of time, you can still use these three tips to give your home some style:

1. Add style to necessities. Things like hand soap, salt and pepper shakers, and even Kleenex can impart your aesthetic. Kleenex Perfect Fit Tissues are one of my new favorites – they’re cute and compact, and they fit in well with our decor.


If you want to snag your own Kleenex Perfect Fit Tissues, they’re available at your local Sam’s Club only through this month so be sure and get to Sam’s by May 31.


2. Bring in pops of color through curtains. There are lots of other ways to add color, but I’m a big advocate of curtains. For one thing, they make windows feel finished. They’re also an inexpensive – and easy to change – way to bring in color or pattern to your space. You can see our dining area curtains in the photo above. The pattern and color really help make the room special!

3. Repurpose large-scale items for impact. We’re working on updating a HUGE old window frame and turning it into a big space to display family photos. I like collections of things, but if you can, find something big that will really draw your eye to it.


Thank you to Kleenex for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Kleenex Perfect Fit! They’re a perfect marriage of form and function, and are one great way to spruce up our space.
