We all want our home to look fantastic, but we don’t always have the budget to achieve the exact finish that we deserve. There are options available to give your home the look you want in a more inexpensive way. By concentrating on small details and having a bit of creativity, you can achieve a high-end finish for less.
A stylish bedroom
Your bedroom is where you go to relax after a long day, so you want to create a calming and luxurious atmosphere. Even on a small budget this is achievable. Adding in some cozy pillows is one way of doing so, which gives an elegant look and another dimension to the room.
It’s worthwhile investing in a good quality bed, as this is more cost effective in the long run. You can then save money by looking at cheaper options for the bedside tables, dressing tables and other pieces. Try searching through second-hand stores and house sales for high quality furniture at a fraction of the price it would be new. It might be that these need up-cycling by using varnish or paint to keep in with your décor, but you will be saving money and have a unique piece of furniture.
A stunning living room
Living areas offer many opportunities to use your creative flair, even on a budget. If you’ve got a large space, you’ll want to make the most of it, without it appearing cluttered or filled with lots of unconnected items. Storage units can add a touch of elegance to the room without having to be expensive. You can pick up a plain unit cheaply and then use paint to match it to your design theme.
Window treatments help to finish off a room and there are so many choices available. If you want something a bit different to the traditional curtains and blinds you find in most houses, you could look at window shutters. These are available in a range of styles and give your home a more unique feel.
A calming bathroom
Bathrooms often don’t get the same attention that you give to other rooms and the budget you have available can be less. However, there are some simple and effective ways of making the space look luxurious, even with just a small budget. It can be the accessories that make the difference in a bathroom and these don’t have to cost much. Look at buying some soft towels to add a hotel feel to the bathroom.
If you don’t have much to spend on tiles, a feature wall can give a big impact at a lower price. Alternatively you could create a mirrored wall out of smaller sections of glass to create a statement, which will cost less than one large piece.
With some imagination and research you’ll find that you don’t have to spend much to give your property the wow factor. Focus on the areas that really count and spend money where you need to and you’ll have a home that you love coming back to.
