Four Ways to Design Your Home on the Cheap
We love indulging in design inspo as much as the next person, but sometimes scrolling through house tours and browsing Pinterest over the latest interior decorating can put you down if you have a tighter budget.
Don’t let your lower budget hold you back! Read more to find out four way to design your home on the cheap
#1 Stick to the classics
There is a reason, several in fact, why most high-end homes are designed on the foundation of a neutral colour palette. A muted scheme of white, off-white, beige, grey and brown emits a calming, clutter-free ambience.
Add a hint of sophistication to your space by choosing such hues for whatever you can update and having accessories to introduce visual interest. Not only does a neutral base allow bolder details to stand out even more, you are also giving yourself room for growth when your tastes change years down the road.
#2 Styling, all the way
The easiest way to create a designer look is to add personality using styling. The plus point is you don’t have to spend a fortune on it either. Pin them to a corkboard, create, install a series of floating shelves, feature mural or wallpaper; the possibilities are endless.
#3 Materials Materials Materials
Why go premium when the alternative is just as good? Certain materials are not one of a kind, and you can easily find a cheaper alternative, that looks just as good! There are so many material lookalikes and substitutes that can fit your price range.
#4 Less is more
Minimalism is a trend that’s here to stay. Buying fewer pieces is obviously cheaper than buying more, and fortunately for those of us with tight budget, simplicity is currently considered the height of elegance.
While it’s tempting to purchase the full package—TV cabinet, area rug, sofa, armchair, ottomans, coffee and side tables—in a living room, all you really need is a place to sit and a surface to keep a drink on.
