If the new year has you itching for a new look for your home, but your wallet isn’t quite onboard with any pricey upgrades, you’re in luck. Home renovation expert Ty Pennington has graciously provided a handful of ideas on how you can spruce up your space without spending a fortune.

While speaking with the New York Post, Pennington offered this simple yet impactful tip for home decorating: “Some of the small things really have a huge effect.”

Pennington, who will serve as the host of the upcoming HGTV show Ty Breaker, revealed that giving your home a fresh look can be as easy as creating a personalized main entrance.

“I love to see anything that says, ‘This is who I am,’ whether it’s dancing shoes hanging, whether it’s a cowboy hat on a wall,” the carpenter/designer said. “I like to…immediately feel their personality.”

If you’re feeling extra crafty, Pennington provided the New York Post with an ultra-creative way you can make your own pillows.

“You can also take old [colorful] blankets and sew them yourself into pillows,” he said. “When you do something yourself, you have this euphoria that you’ve created something that nobody else has — you pulled it off and at that moment you’re so proud.

Fans can expect plenty more expert insight from Pennington when Ty Breaker airs later this month. The HGTV show is a competitive home renovation series that will pit Pennington against another designer, during each episode.

Ty Breaker is set to air on Monday, January 11, at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
