If your home needs a fresh look, you may be thinking about redecorating.Interior design does not always have to be an expensive project.
Plan your Interior Design carefully
Research the best items and the best prices for your home before you start buying.
You can also split the different parts of the interior design project like paint, accessories, flooring and furniture and assign them separate budgets to make the project more manageable.
Try to reuse some items for your new interior design plan
Look around the furniture and accessories you have and try to incorporate them into the new interior design plan.
Some creative thinking may be required. You may also be able to reuse some old furniture with some modifications like a new colour or by mixing and matching components of different items of the furniture.
Buy unvarnished furniture to save money on interior design
Unfinished pieces will cost less than showroom models. Another advantage of buying unfinished furniture is that you will be able to see all the imperfections on the piece as varnish can often hide small dents or cracks.
You will also be able to choose between different stains and varnishes to apply to match the look of your home.
Another way of saving money on furniture is to buy second-hand. Keep a look out for interesting pieces at low prices.
Use colour strategy
You can get your upholstery changed to a different and bold colour to add a solid look to your room.
Small changes like using different coloured pillow cases on your throw pillows can also dramatically alter the look of a room.
Use a combination of a neutral dominant colour with a bold accent colour in your interior design to add contrast to the room and make the furniture stand out.
Do your interior design in stages
People often take on too much at once and have to make compromises that end up leaving them unsatisfied with the results.
