Limited budget……….just add imagination!
Most of us today work hard for what we have and even though it may not be the best decor, it is still ours. What many don’t realize is that there are steps you can take to redesign your interior on almost any budget.
With a little hard work and a little know-how, you can take what you have, add a little to it and make it look like an interior designer came in and did a small makeover.
You should always start by re-using existing items in your home. This is where you will save a lot of money.
In fact, you wont spend any money at all. If you take inventory of what you have and look at things in a different light, you will see an all-new outlook on your items.
Sometimes, things in our home become stagnant and we are used to seeing them day in and day out.
Take those items and consider using them in a different way. Try moving things around, give them a good cleaning and find them a new home.
Paint can be your best friend when you are trying to do interior design on a budget. Paint can totally change the look of a room, and for only a few dollars per room.
It just takes a little elbow grease and a little work to make your old dingy room look new again. And white is not the only color you can paint your walls.
Experiment with color. New paint cannot only change the look of your room, but it can change the look of the furniture you put in it, and the decor you add.
