Make Your Home Look Fabulous On A Budget

Make Your Home Look Fabulous On A Budget

I may not have mentioned this more than a hundred times but we are moving home tomorrow! Given that we are in the midst of moving here are a few tips to help you make your house look fabulous on a budget.

 I have so many plans and projects for the new house and am confident that I can do all these things bit by bit. None of these things needs planning permission or anything like this, so they are all relatively straight forward ideas. By the time you have finished reading this you are going to know how you can make your home look fabulous, even when you are on a tight budget.

Buy a Property

If you are looking to make a real estate investment and want to live in the property you have the opportunity to make this property suitably fabulous after you have figured out what your budget is going to be. This needs to be in line with the amount that you have spent on the property though, or else you are going to have issues when it comes to purchasing the items for your home.

Find The Perfect Couch

The first thing that we are going to look at in terms of making your home look fabulous is ensuring that you find the perfect couch. You might be thinking that there is no such thing as a perfect couch, but we can assure you there is. For example, one that matches the rest of your living room is going to be a great start. For this reason, it is recommended that you go for something of a neutral colour. If you don’t do this, then you could find areas of your room clashing, throwing off the whole vibe of your home.

It doesn’t matter whether you want to choose leather or fabric, because this is down to personal preference. You do need to consider all the factors here though, such as how long you want it to last, whether you have kids or pets and so on. These will all play a part in picking the perfect couch for your home.

Paint The Walls

This isn’t going to cost you very much money at all, especially if you decide to do the job yourself. Just get yourself a can of paint and some paint brushes, then you will be good to go (I’m a fan of Farrow and Ball). Paint doesn’t cost that much, and you will find that all paint stores will have a selection for you to choose from to ensure that you are getting the colour that you love.

Make Your House Look Fabulous on a Budget With A Theme

Have you thought about having a theme throughout your home? This doesn’t have to be expensive, but it can be anything you want. For example, if you love Harry Potter, why not have Harry Potter items around your home? By doing this, there is a theme continuing throughout your home, and you are not going to have to spend thousands to make this happen. Picking up items when you see them is the best way to get this idea going. You might find that there is an awesome decoration when you are just browsing the store, and you can pick it up to add to the collection when you get home. You know that our new home is going to be cram-packed full of Dungeons and Dragons awesomeness.

Try Minimalism to Make Your House Look Fabulous on a Budget

Minimalism is a popular design trend at the moment and appeals to me, up to a point. The whole idea behind this trend is to make things look as spacious and open as possible by removing all the clutter from every room in the home. If you don’t like clutter, then this could be the design trend for you to follow.

If you are wondering how you could get started with this, a great way is to go room by room and sort out the things that you no longer want or need. One of the rules you should follow is that if it doesn’t bring you happiness or hold sentimental value, then it needs to go. Having items just to take up space goes against the entire principal of minimalism which could mean that you need to get some extra storage space.

Charity Shops

Finally, you can always check out charity shops. Sometimes people can be a little funny about buying items that have been used by others, but they are fully sorted out before they are resold to you. So, what is the issue with buying those curtains for half the price they are worth? Not only are you getting a great discount, but you are also helping by contributing to charity. You never know what awesome things that you might be able to find if you head over to a charity shop and start looking for home accessories.
