Do you have big dreams but only a small home decorating budget? Are you planning a major change or just wanting to update or freshen the look of a room with simple, inexpensive home décor? These are questions you might want to start with to focus on your intention for redecorating a room. Here are home decorating ideas from the experts to get you started on that home decorating project that you have been thinking about for some time.
If you are buying a major piece of furniture, you need to do your homework by researching and comparing quality and price. Sit on a couch and perhaps stretch out on it before buying it to make sure it’s right for you.
Spend your money where you can see it. Don’t spend $75 on a small vase when that $75 could be used for a beautiful mirror on an accent wall or even a cluster of mirrors that will offer a more dramatic look.
Look at the space you are redecorating with a fresh approach. Consider the basic pieces and rearrange the space; adding one new piece of furniture and changing accessories really changes the look of a room. Remember to keep in mind the function and style of the room.
To make a room feel professionally decorated, “float” the furniture in the room rather than having it too close to the walls. This is a technique used by the experts to give that customized look.
Distract the eye away from what you can’t afford to change. For example, using a unique, bold vase holding a beautiful silk flower or grass arrangement on top of a worn, dated coffee table will draw the attention to what is on top of the table instead of on the table itself.
Candles as well as framed photos of family and friends add a focal point and a personal touch to any room and are very inexpensive home decorating accessories.
