Paint your colors
Instead of painting the entire house, you can opt for painting a single wall of every room and brighten up the dark areas or corners with fresh colors. You could use festive colors like orange and red or even get creative with your own palettes.
Change of drapes and furnishing
The easiest way to generate a new look at your place is by using new drapes and furnishings. You could change the look of your house by changing the curtains, table covers, sofa covers and bed covers. In order to keep up with the budget, try choosing an item that creates the maximum impact when viewed.
Get yourself a focal piece
If you are not keen on making major changes, but still want to give your home a remarkable Diwali look, you need to get yourself a statement piece for your house. You could place it in your living room or at the entrance so as to grab maximum attention.
Keeping your expenses in mind, make paper lanterns and candle motives from mason jars. You could also make your own candles at home. Moreover, you can make your own rangoli at home using natural colors or even flowers.
Paint old bottles and use them as vases during the festival. You could also use unwanted plain glass bottles and fill them with lights. Try using some unused glass bowls to make floating candles and flowers or cut your old sari borders to use as decorative for the dining table. Image source: Getty
