8 Kmart Home Decor Hacks to Style Your Home on a Budget

OK, so I’m going to be honest here. I once thought that all of the cheap Kmart home decor was just more dust collectors, those things you’d buy on impulse because they were cheap only to eventually become throwaway junk. Well, I’ve changed my tune because I’ve seen how nice some Kmart homewares can look when styled right AND the Kmart hacks you can do with them are so clever, they make affordable Kmart homewares look a lot more expensive than they really were.

Over my break, inspiration struck while I was browsing through some of my favourite Kmart hacks Instagram accounts and I just had to share my finds with you. It’s perfect home decor inspiration to spruce up your home!

    Eva, these are great K-Mart home decor hacks! I have noticed that the quality of home decor goods at K-Mart has increased substantially over the last 12 months or so! I’m actually planning a shopping trip to pick up a few pieces this week so your post was very timely and has given me some great ideas. Much thanks to you! Happy New Year to you! xo

    That magazine rack is a bit clever isn’t it. I’ve bought 2 of their mirrors for our bathrooms and they have worked a treat.

    These look really great. I love Kmart, I have the copper candle holder which I keep my airplant in. I am also wanting to pick up a couple of those cute little stools.

  4. January 5, 2016 / 8:59 pm

    There are some very clever ideas out there! I never think of things like this.

    These are awesome! I am so envious because I simply can’t have stuff displayed out like that at the moment because my 3 year old boy destroys everything! The magazine rack I could though! Hmm … LOVE. #TeamIBOT

    Kmart do have some lovely things lately, I have noticed a few more new things on the shelves this past week too that have caught my eye!

    I love some of these simple but affective ideas here. I have a few of these things and never thought of altering them.

    My fave would have to be the magazine holder – I am a magazine junkie! Though I love the dinosaurs too.

    I am desperate for a couple of those copper side tables! I went straight online after seeing this to buy one but they don’t have stock at my closest outlet. You are officially an enabler!

    Wow, these are some great decor items to add to a room. They all add something unique while not breaking the bank. I’m looking to do the same throughout my home. Thanks for sharing.
