If your curtains are the originals and your rug is straight from the 70s, it might be time for some new homewares! There’s a common misconception that updating your decor costs a fortune, when in actual fact you only need to shop at stores like Kmart, Target, Big W, Reject Shop and Aldi to find modern, good quality homewares. The majority of these items are under $20 as well!

Stores like Kmart has had a renaissance of sorts – shoppers are flocking to buy their cut-price home furnishing range, and other retailers have followed suit. No more $200 rugs and $50 vases: you can update everything for a fraction of the cost, and it will look chic.

Here are a few decor ideas:

The upcoming Aldi catalogue has some retro products that will get a fresh style to your home.

This simple but chic comforter is just $29 for single or $39 for Queen from Target.

The Reject Shop sells some great home decor items, such as these vases for under $10.

Marble products are all the rage right now, and these serving boards are just $15 at Kmart.
