Tackling an interior design project and updating your home decor can be challenging and costly.
However, it can also be very rewarding because it allows you to express your creativity and create a comfortable space that reflects your style.
Here are four interior design tips to get the look you want without breaking the bank.
1. Rework Pieces You Already Own
Rather than buy new things, you can often update old ones at a fraction of the cost. With a little imagination and creativity, you should be able to transform dated items into a whole new creation.
For example, if you have some old throw pillows that no longer match your design aesthetic, you can always recover them with a new fabric that meets your needs.
The same can be done for furniture. You can always paint furniture, add new hardware or reupholster items, such as couches and chairs.
2. Create a Realistic Budget
Establishing an effective interior design budget — and sticking to it — can also help you to save money.
First, determine what items you need for the project and what price point is realistic to achieve your vision.
Then, visit your local furniture store to find something that speaks to you but is within your price range.
