Call us irrational or ambitious, but we believe that money can’t make a home look and feel beautiful. It’s the creativity and buoyancy that can transform a simple home into a designer’s dream. It’s quite normal that not everyone can afford a high-end stylish home, especially after spending a substantial amount of the life savings to buy the house. Fortunately, the interior designers and decorators of Homify know the way to decorate the home thriftily. Believe us; it doesn’t require a fortune to make your home décor a neighbour’s envy and your pride. Let’s dive in to discover the smart and budget-friendly ideas to decorate our home without breaking the bank. All you need to do is to take inspirations and unleash your imagination.
There is perfection in imperfection. Everything doesn’t need to be matched to make it a perfect decoration. Usually home décor evolves with time and as our budget allows and the changes we bring in the interior of our home keeps it new and refreshing. There is no need to have a matching sofa set; you can mix-match it, or same shape in centre and side table, or the paintings in perfect harmony. The innovative style is all about mixing and not necessarily matching. Match your creativity and flaunt your style of décor with confidence and pride so much that it becomes your personal style.
Simple décor is alluring and inexpensive too. Simple furniture made of solid wood by your local carpenter will come with cheaper price tag than bought from a furniture showroom and the quality will be guaranteed. Think about complimenting the simple wooden furniture with wicker blinds instead of fabric to dress up the window. You can easily get the blinds from the road side weavers too and will last forever with just little effort. Besides, it will bring in the warmth of natural product into your home décor.
There is no limit to creativity and an eclectic space can be created even in a shoe string budget. A bachelor’s pad or a young couple abode, it can be decorated in a special way matching with the personality of the resident. Shun that expensive sofa set and instead put the cushions on the floor, design the centre table with pull out seats which can become the dining table when needed. Stack up the boxes to make the cabinet and cover the roof with fabric to form the exclusive false roof. The rustic look of the space is further enhanced by the simple LED bulbs arranged in a row and alternately covered with weaved rattan as DIY project to add more personal touch in the décor. And don’t miss to appreciate the colour coordination.
Just a couple of stunning pieces will make the whole lot of difference in the home décor, see it to believe it! Two differently designed chairs kept in an ordinary décor become the focal point and will grab all the attention. Paint the wall in a shade to complement that special piece and enjoy the compliments you will get.
The natural charm of traditional tiles beneath the feet is en vogue and will never go out of style. Instead of opting for expensive tiles for the floor, choose Athangudi tiles which is a sun-dried and handmade traditional tile. It can be customised and made in variety of colour and design to match with the décor of your home. And guess what; it comes at a reasonable price.
Showcase your painting skills or allow your children to explore the wall of their home and preserve the memories. It’s quite common among the children to use the walls of the house as their canvas. Let them paint the wall and be there to guide them and paint their favourite cartoon character or whatever they wish to paint, just make them paint directly on the wall. Trust us; you will preserve those most valuable paintings on the wall forever, remembering and cherishing those memories.
Explore the old city markets for home decoration and you will stumble upon the treasure waiting for your attention. Take some inspiration from here and see how an old sewing machine is converted into the washbasin by putting a ceramic bowl over it.
It’s the demand of the time to create an indoor garden at home, especially when living in a city. Think about creating a vertical garden which will also double up to decorate the home in a budget. Look for terracotta planters available with the potters, it is cheap and create an amazing artifact on the wall along with bringing in greenery in your home.
Think before throwing out that old furniture which is outdated and looks to be of no use to you. Instead use your creativity and refurbish the same old furniture and give it a new look. Weave the old charpoy with colourful rope, cover the old trunk with colourful fabric, paint the bench fresh and polish the high table and see how the décor of the simple home will look exclusive with all the prized antique furniture.
