Whether you’re making some updates to re-energize the look and feel of the spaces in your home, or you’re preparing to put your house up for sale, there are ways of achieving a high-end style while keeping your budget intact.
Decorating and having rooms that you can enjoy and be proud of should be fun, not stressful. With these budget friendly decorating tips for high-end style, you’ll be well on your way to giving each room that ‘wow’ factor.
Take Painting to the Next Level
While a new coat of paint will refresh the look of any space, go a step further and get creative. Decorative painting, like vertical stripes in different hues of the same color family or a horizontal two-tone pattern can completely update the look. Give the look of dimension to your walls with the use of textured paint rollers, or try your hand with a fabric roller.
In most cases, your local paint store will have examples and will even give you a quick lesson on achieving the look you’re going for.
Give Your Furniture a Makeover
Don’t think you have to replace your furniture to change and update your space. Slip covers can be the answer! Start by browsing through design magazines or visiting a high-end furniture store for inspiration. Once you have a few ideas, head to your local department store and look at what they have to offer. This is a super budget-friendly way of making over a room!
Attention to Accessories
Again, a great place to start when updating the accessories in your space is to browse a few design magazines, look online, or visit a furniture store to see how their stagers have set up a mock living room or bedroom.
You don’t have to change out every accessory you have in a room, just a few perfectly placed accents will do the trick! Choose items that stand out from the primary color scheme of the space, like vases, a collection of frames, or even an accent chair.
