Get the Look for Less

Want to renovate your home on a budget? Transforming your space without breaking the bank isn’t out of reach. Save with these smart interior design tips that give homeowners the look they want!

1. Accessorize

In fashion, accessories can make the outfit – and the same goes with interior design. Whether you already have a color scheme or are starting from scratch in your space, pick a shade or two that will make your palette pop and incorporate this accent color in a few key accessories. Accessories can include anything from pillows and throws to plants, art and decorative pieces. If you want to change up your home’s style, accessories can give any space a budget-friendly refresh.

2. Get Floored

Hardwood floors create a timeless look with tons of colors and species to choose from. However, if you’re working with a tight budget, upgrading to hardwood might not be feasible – but you can still get the look for less, and the performance you want, with other flooring choices like laminate and plank vinyl. With 100% waterproof, scratch and dent resistant, and easy-to-install varieties in a wide range of woodgrain options, these floors can make a versatile, beautiful option for any room in your home.

3. Light it Up

Well-placed lighting not only brightens up your space, but lighting can also update its style and liven up your design. Updating your lighting is a quick and simple way to get a new look in your space! From trendy choices to timeless fixtures, replacing your overhead lighting and lamps will instantly give your space an attractive new first impression for all your guests. Boring table and floors lamps, bulky ceiling fans, and outdated overhead fixtures probably don’t embody your unique style and personality, so replace them with ones that do and bring your interior design to life!

4. Finishing Touches

From new hardware to design additions that complete your look, the finishing touches can make a big impact on your interior design. Simply replacing your old cabinet knobs and handles can change up your kitchen or bath without much hassle. The same goes for furniture like dressers and drawers. This is a great way to get a new look if your budget doesn’t have room for completely new cabinets, vanities or furniture. Making a small investment in area rugs are another finishing touch that will help tie together the colors and furniture of a living room, bedroom and beyond.

5. A Coat or Two

A fresh coat of paint or two can go a long way to get you the look you want, without being much of a burden on your budget. It doesn’t stop at your home’s walls – paint can transform old furniture to trendy pieces, give cabinets a whole new look and more! Get inspired by the top paint color trends of 2019 to choose the best color palette for your style and space.

6. Make Every Piece Count

If it’s time for new furniture in a room, opt for choices that offer great style coupled with maximum functionality to make the best use of your space and budget. From pieces that offer style and storage to sectionals that seat the whole crew, making smart choices for your interior design can help you make a bigger impact with a smaller budget.
