Ways to Make Your Home Look Expensive with a Low Budget
Renovating and revamping a home is a major task. Mostly the part of the home that gets the utmost priority is the kitchen, bathroom and a garden if possible. The revamping can even go over budget. Your home reflects your personal style and persona.
Firstly you need to start with planning your decor, which areas need the most renovation and revamp, which furniture can be reused and the ones that definitely need to be replaced. To get great ideas you can either search on Pinterest or videos on YouTube.
Listing some easy tips to uplift your home and give it an expensive look even when you are low on the budget.
Try adding plants
Plants are a great way of uplifting the room. Not only does it give out oxygen but it also adds greenery and colour to the room. You can choose from in-house plants and succulents that do not require much water. You can use glass pots to hang them or vases as a center piece on the table.
You can create a chic and sophisticated space with neutral home decor – a hue without colour. Neutral decor does add peace, calm and elegance to your home. It also allows the colour to be added to bright paintings, sofas, dining table etc. You will have many options to accessorise the room with. The room will eventually grow with you. Later on, it will give you the freedom to mix colour palettes and to add certain aspects of elegance easily. Incorporate pattern and textures to the decor.
Splurge on important things
While refurbishing your home, spend on products that are absolutely important and required. Invest in statement furniture to be the highlight of your room or home. Things you can spend on are sofas, center table, rugs and lights.
Create a focal point for your home. This is required so that you can easily concentrate on those points. For example, in a large living room you need to focus on the sitting area – the conversation, gossiping place, relaxation etc. So if you have neutral interiors, give a pop of colour to the room with a colourful, classic sofa like a chesterfield. Pick a palette and stick with it.
If you are refurbishing your home try to de-clutter your home by removing unused and unwanted and over sized furniture. Strive to remove any furniture that is not in good condition. When on a tight budget, you need to spend on the important piece of furniture. Like in a dining room, usually you need a dining table, dining chairs, overhead light, center piece and rugs. So prioritize the furniture. You need a dining table and chairs or eating and overhead lights. Rugs and a center piece are additional accessories that can be spent on later. Be minimalistic.
Since you are refurbishing, you might as well invest in a good piece of furniture. Try to keep things as simple and elegant as possible. A de-cluttered home means less dust, low stress level and humongous space for creativity.
Personalise your home
Home is where the heart is. Try to give your home a personalised look. Try to highlight memories with your family. Put up framed images of memories you treasure. If you have children, then display their artwork which will help boost their moral. You can even personalise the wall of your room by painting it together as a family and add textures. Simple and minimalistic decor should be your target.
Be clear with your interior ideas. Do not try and incorporate different styles into one, it will just be messy. Personalising your home by yourself can sometimes go out of the budget.
Flooring and tiles
You can invest in adding colour and texture to your home with flooring and tiles. Tiles can be introduced in the bathroom and kitchen. You can find cheap tiles and install them carefully by yourself as well cutting down on installation costs.
Add beautiful accessories
Adding accessories to your home decor is very much essential. Interiors need not be boring. Add accessories in nooks and corners to accentuate your decor. For example, adding curtains to windows not obstructing natural light, colourful cushion covers for the sofa etc. If you have stairs in your home then add stair runners of different patterns. This will provide grip and avoid anyone slipping.
If you are a pet owner, you can add cute accessories for your pets as well.
You can provide elegance to the ceiling by adding beautiful chandeliers. One can even add ceiling medallions to accentuate the look. The ceiling can also be a statement head turner focal point of your room. Already have a wall light or chandelier? Then you can replace certain parts like the light ring or bulb to give it a different look and match your current decor. You can also think of accent ceilings to be your focal point.
Hope these pointers are helpful to uplift your home decor without harming your pocket. Try to have a clear idea of your home style and stick to it. In the end, keep it simple yet let it reflect your personal style.
