Owning a house in the countryside is a luxury, and a dream for many. If you’re fortunate enough to have one, you’re likely to face a big obstacle: your house and basic furniture have already cost you an arm and a leg; now is it possible to decorate it on a budget?
The answer is, quite simply, yes: you can decorate a country house with very little money. To do so, you must first consolidate what you need with what you like. And what you really need are storage items to keep your country house tidy and organised. If you can manage to find storage solutions that match your style, you’ll be organising and decorating your house at the same time!
There’s a wide variety of storage options available, and your choice will depend on your personal taste and needs, as well as on the different requirements of each room in the house:
- Kitchen. There are some utensils that you always want to have on hand because you use them daily, for example: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, cloths, and wooden spoons. If you use wall-mounted accessories to store them, they’ll be out on display and easy to grab at any time. For example: storage shelves, hook rails, wall boxes, soap dispensers, or kitchen roll holders. These items are all functional and fantastic, and they’re easy to install on the wall thanks to the suction cup, self-adhesive, or magnetic options – no drilling required!
- Bathroom. There are many items that we need to keep in the bathroom: towels, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, creams, etc., and the more we’re home, the more items we need. One of the best options for keeping these things well organised are wall-mounted storage accessories with suction cups or self-adhesive mounting; different brackets and shelves for storing everything you need, both in the shower (shower gel, shampoo, sponges…) and outside it (toothbrushes, creams, makeup…). You’ll also find towel racks of all different sizes. Another option is storage baskets. There’s an array of different sizes, shapes and materials available, perfect for throwing your dirty clothes into, or storing towels, toilet roll, or whatever else you need. And finally, if you prefer to keep your things on the sink or a shelf, makeup and toiletry organisers are the perfect choice, available in various colours with different compartments.
- Home. For the rest of the rooms in the house – bedrooms, living room, and hallway – we have storage options with very specific uses, such as clothes bags, or different types of shoeracks. Other accessories like storage boxes are perfect for storing whatever you like, and can be kept either under the bed, in a cupboard, or out on display, thanks to their decorative exterior. You can choose from an array of different materials: fabric, cardboard, or plastic. You can also choose between different sizes and prints.
Now that you’ve got a few ideas about how to decorate your country home on a budget, you can really get down to work planning the items you need to buy, and choose the ones that you like the best and also suit all your requirements.
