As the sun and moon take shifts to give us light each passing day and night, the vibe we get from our immediate environment- our rooms, dining rooms, living rooms- progressively diminishes.
For sure, it isn’t equal to the ambiance and feels we got when we first had our space painted.
This fact builds in us the urge to make a change; a strong desire for a remodeling.
However, it becomes a different ballgame all-together when we wish to explore the world of decorations but are confined to the boundaries of a budget.
That being said, we’ve gathered several innovative ways you could change the feel of your living space while spending as little bucks as possible:
How to do a Makeover to Your Living Space on a Budget
How easy is it to pick up a brush, buy paint and give a new look to your house?
Actually, it’s not so easy.
Picking a paint color is perhaps one of the most challenging but crucial decisions to make when it comes to internal decorations.
This is true, especially if the remaining décor will be based on the color palette you choose, so you want it to be an attention-grabbing interior color.
If you aim at making a statement with your paint without breaking the bank, there are two main options to choose from- bold and dramatic or simply soft, understated hues.
These two colors automatically add instant elegance to your home.
Another tip is painting your internal doors black.
This would create that expensive feel in your home without hitting hard on your purse.
All the same, be sure to add some sprinkles of black décor here and there to tie the overall design together.
What About a Fireplace?
Has the thought of a fireplace ever crossed your mind?
The blissful ambiance a fireplace creates in your living room while still generating enough heat to keep you warm during the winter nights?
Or you and your friends enjoying a bottle of champagne beside your fireplace on a Friday night?
Whether you wish for some appliance that acts as a companion during the cold night or a decoration that adds a cozy feeling to your living room, a fireplace should be your top choice.
Remember that your fireplace insert is as important as your fireplace itself.
There are curved and modern fireplace inserts, as well as a myriad of options to choose from while all the same, keeping your wallet full.
Fireplace surrounds come in a variety of colors.
So, choose a color that can easily blend in with the rest of your décor.
Another budget-friendly way of giving your living space that high-end look is by practicing the ‘let-there-be-light’ trick.
Don’t worry; it is without the high-end price.
Lighting can change everything, bring out the minute features of a room, and add some elegance.
We asked Aaron from Connect Electric who specializes in creative lighting and he had said the following:
“While most contractors would rather go for the conventional lighting schemes, flowing against the tide will make your home unique and can really add some character.”
Picking a designer light instead of a standard chandelier lighting system could strike a balance between a budget-friendly design and an elegant one.
One trick is by looking through the flea markets or second-hand stores.
Here, you can get unique pieces at budget-friendly prices.
For some DIY tricks, add some drum shade around an old chandelier.
In addition, be sure to add several lighting sources- floor and table lamps- to your home to increase the elegant feel.
Hang some artwork
Artworks could be the game-changer.
Really, there’s a lot that can be done with some good pieces of art.
Aside from giving your home that timeless feel, you get to make a lasting impression on your guests.
The idea that artworks are expensive is a myth and should be debunked.
Even so, you could resort to DIY craft as a means of art.
