As an interior designer, I can tell you that in order to achieve a state of the art interior, you’re going to have to spend some money. It is every homeowner’s nightmare not having the home that they have always wanted thanks to money constraints. However, this should not always be the case. In fact, with proper knowledge you can be able to get an elegant interior on a budget. You just have to know what matters and what has the greatest impact. For instance, you might want to dwell on having great kitchen cabinet handles yet they will have very little or no physical appeal to the kitchen compared to having a quality paint job done.
It is important to make sure that you’re not flushing your money down the drain and are instead investing it in the best possible ways. This will make sure that you get an elegant looking interior at a low price tag and even better an appeal that will blow your guests away. Now that you get the picture, here are some great ideas and tips that could help you use your shoe string budget to give yourself a millionaire interior.
Crown molding is every home owner’s first trick. Any elegant home needs a well finished and detailed interior and crown molding gives you both for a very inexpensive price tag. You don’t have to stick to the edges of the ceilings with this. You can break a few rules and use it on the kitchen cabinets and the walls. It is a smart way of bringing the walls and the ceiling together and giving them that wow factor. It is definitely something that brings the wow-factor into the room and allows it to look more elegant and custom-made.
The paint job
Remember that argument we had earlier of considering the paint over the cabinet handles, well, it lives. A great paint job will cover any mediocrity in the finishing and interior of the house. It allows you to make the interior into anything you want and let the rooms say anything you want them to. You have to be careful to get the pairings right and above all. You have to make sure that you pick a paint that will capture attention. It gives little room for your guests to look for mistakes and are caught in awe of the excellent color. Keep in mind that getting the paint job done properly is just as vital. It is one of those areas where you are advised to channel most of your funds especially if you are not going to spend big on the rest of the interior.
Now these are a truly inexpensive and clever way of bumping up your interior and making it more elegant and wait for it, more comfortable! Pillows throughout the house will give the house a much needed elegant touch and they also provide your guests with some extra comfort. But the keyword in this case would not really be the pillows but the kind of pillows. You have to make sure that you make your choices appropriately to complement or contrast the rest of finishing.
Getting a great look for your home can be a daunting task especially if you have no budget to match the taste. These tricks if used properly will get you as close as possible for only a fraction of the initial price (mid century modern inspired furniture has been famous for replicating the high end look without the pricetag). You just have to be clever enough to implement them in a clever and genius way that will allow them to serve you better.
