    Home Design

    When You're on a Budget

    Are you unhappy with the way your home looks? If you have big dreams for redesigning your home but don’t have a large budget to work with, you’re in luck. There are a lot of things you can do to achieve the look you want without spending your life’s savings on home design. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Shop Consignment Stores

Furniture can be expensive, especially if it’s made with high-quality craftsmanship. Instead of purchasing cheap furniture that will probably need replacing in a few years, try shopping at consignment and secondhand stores. Before you go shopping though, use free room planner design software to help you decide what you want your room to look like and how you want to arrange it. Doing this will help you stay focused when shopping.

Add Fresh Paint

One of the quickest and most affordable ways to redesign your home is to cover up outdated paint with new paint. Farmhouse gray, white, sage, and spruce blue are all popular colors right now, but you can use any colors you want to bring new life to your home. Remember to add a prime coat beforehand, especially if you’re doing wall repairs or covering up a dark coat of paint with a lighter shade.

Hang Window Treatments

Window treatments have a reputation for being expensive, but you don’t need to buy top-of-the-line curtains to make your home look nice. As an alternative to purchasing high-end window treatments, you can always make your own if you know how to sew. Look for sales on specialty fabric and you’ll end up saving even more money while making your home look like a million bucks in the process.

The Final Touch

Decorate with Pillows

Pillows aren’t very expensive, but they can instantly make your room look more posh and stylish. You don’t need dozens of pillows to make a statement. Just place two to four pillows on each couch to add a subtle touch of flair to the room. Purchase decorative pillows only after you have decided on paint colors and purchased your furniture. That way you can choose pillows that compliment everything else.
