Cheap Home Decor and Expensive Looking Results

14 Sep


What a wonderful feeling when people visit you at home and congratulate you on your good taste when looking at the way you have stylized your home decoration. But, like everything in life, good things come with money. Well, I’ve got good news for you. Cheap home decor is not only possible but also can be very easy to achieve if you spend time, use your imagination and pay a bit of attention to a few home remodeling tips.

Let’s have a look now at some cheap home decor ideas you can easily implement in your house:

Try to combine different style, like modern and classic. They usually look very good when put together, especially in the kitchen area. For modern kitchen plain doors a creamy or soft color can look sensational, while quality taps and accessories give the room the classical edge. Look at cheap home decor catalogs; you will see that inexpensive MDF works very well indeed if you want to achieve the classic-modern look. Accessories play an important role in the look and style of any room and you shouldn’t overlook a variety of choices. The renowned Karlsson clocks, for example, will add a modern touch to any wall and you can fetch one for as little as $19.99.

When we look at colors if in a tight budget, copy the shade of the existent tiles and try to match the color to paint the ceiling. Use the same color but in a paler shade to paint the walls and create a bit of depth. This way you allow the tone to show but it sparks up the room. If your worktop is also made of inexpensive wood, use colors like chrome, plum, cream or white to lift the look while allowing your worktop to fill the kitchen with warmth – especially if you used blue to paint your walls or ceilings, as it is considered to be a cool color.

Cheap home decorating is another way of saying: revamp your rooms without spending tons of money! Remove your doors and use MDF that you can get cut to fit at any DIY store where you could also look for cheap blinds. To fit the MDF doors don’t remove any of the hinges that were already in place. When thinking about colors, almost any nice shade will do when painting your new doors. Just fit on them long or extravagant handles and the door will instantly come to life looking like you purchased them in one of those really expensive shops.

Your kitchen is maybe a bit small and you are looking into making it seem “bigger”. Glass does this job really well and is very easy to clean. You don’t have to spend a lot of money when you buy it as you only need to place a few around the kitchen using mirror screws. It is also very discreet making the room feel nice and airy. Ikea sells them by the pack and they look fantastic one placed on the kitchen walls. If the rest of the rooms in your house are also small, you can use these mirrors to great effect. Just remember: glass or mirrors to make a room look more spacious!

Nowadays, manufacturers make very realistic wood laminate flooring. Pale colors are lovely, again, to “add space” to smaller rooms. These types of floors also add warmth to your rooms, the resemblance is sometimes uncanny. They come in an amazing variety of finishes, so go ahead and peak again through the catalogs.

Cheap home decor, as you can see, is only a matter of setting your mind into finding the right decorative items for the right rooms. Yes, it will be time consuming as you need to check the various stores, etc, but well worth it in the end especially for your pocket!
