We’d all like to live in an opulent, designer-inspired home filled with up to the minute touches and the latest technology, but for many of us, money is a limiting factor, so we have to make do with what we can get. But with a few simple ideas, properly implemented, you can get the millionaire’s style on a budget and use your creativity and your imagination to really make something special, and bring about a transformative new look for any room in your home. So check out this handy guide, and soon your home will benefit from these stylish tips.
1 - Instead of buying all new furniture, pick a single feature piece
It’s so easy to overspend when buying new furniture, but the truth is that often a single new piece, carefully placed in a natural focal point, can totally transform the feel of a room. So before you replace every last item of furniture in your lounge, start with a new coffee table, and see for your self the effect of building the room around a single, stunning piece of furniture.
2 - Use the natural world to help spruce the place up
Ornaments and accessories can be so expensive, but with a little imagination, you can use totally free items from around the countryside or seaside to bring an effortless elegance to any home. Dried twigs, bundled and placed in vases create some great shapes, especially once the lights come down and shadows are thrown against the wall. Likewise, an arrangement of beach pebbles creates a relaxing, inspiring display that can perfectly accessorise any expansive surface.
3 - Get your kids to help
Your kids use your home, but all too often they can be left out of the decoration process, so why not include them? Get them to draw or paint their favourite scenes then invest in some simple and inexpensive clip frames to display their artwork? Expensive prints are fine, but your children's drawings will be truly inspirational and will make your home feel like a real family space.
So go ahead and get creative and you’re sure to find some cheap or even completely free ways to bring a new atmosphere to your home, after all, the best things in life are free.
