How to Make Your Home Stylish Under a Budget

Decorating a home is always a tough job for individuals especially when it comes to a question of how to make your stylish under a budget?

Most of us want a house to look like the cover of an interior design magazine, but unfortunately, many of us can only dream of having the budget to make our homes stylish, and  never mind hiring an Interior Designer.

But don’t worry, having a stylish home doesn’t necessary equates to splashing, here are relatively simple and inexpensive ways you can have a stylish home without a big budget :

1. Let your colour speak

One effective and inexpensive way that can create a dramatic effect is through the use of colours. Depending on your style preference, either opt for bolder colours, or go for colours with soft saturation.

Dark colours instantly create a stylish effect, while painting a room with neutral colours will create a classy and sophisticated look. Allow plenty of natural sunlight to brighten up the room and to allow natural light do the talking.

2. Accent wall

Having an accent wall is a powerful way of achieving a distinguishable and attractive centerpiece that stands out from the rest of your house. However, it’s easy to go wrong if the colours don’t compliment each other. 

Here’s a tip: Opt for a neutral or dark colour that’s different from the other colour of your walls (eg: dark brown walls with a black accent wall).

3. Opt for a minimalist look

There’s no need to cram your home with knickknacks and items. Instead, try to make a bigger statement by using less. Not only will this de-clutter your room and make your room more “breathable”, but you can also add personality. Group all your display items together instead of scattering them in different shelves. The numerical advantage help to create a bolder statement.

The minimalist look is something that I look forward in stylish my home because I have kids at home. You know how busy they can be at most time right?

4. Get a bigger rug

Rugs are probably not the first thing that springs to mind when it comes to improving the aesthetic of your home, but they can contribute to the elegant appearance of a room in addition to creating an illusion of a bigger space. Anyone know where the best deals to find a rug?

5. Lighting

Last but not least, opt for lights that are dimmer, with a focus on lights that emit an orangey glow as they can change the mood of the room and is one of the best budget-friendly ways to add elegance in your room.

Prevent your home decor from turning into a catastrophe

Most important things do prevent your home decor from turning into a catastrophe. If you can’t seem to determine which colour to choose for your accent wall, or how to decorate based on the “less is more” concept? I recommend you to consult with a  panel by a recommended Interior Designers in Kuala Lumpur to help you with your designing needs. They  offer you a free consultation and can work with you on a healthy budget. Much more easy right? 

So let's make our home stylish shall we?
