Ever seen those wonderfully decorated homes on Pinterest? If you have, then I suspect you believe that a lot of it has to do with expensive décor and furnishings. Sure, many of the homes on Pinterest do include expensive elements which add to their charm. However, as a home decorator myself, let me tell you that this needn’t be the case.
You heard me – there are a number of inexpensive ways to give your home a complete makeover. In fact, if you implement things properly then your home will definitely be Pinterest worthy even if you don’t invest in expensive elements.
So, continue reading this post as I offer some fantastic tips on decorating your home on a budget. By following these ideas, you’ll certainly make your home everyone’s envy!
Give your bedroom a cosy makeover
Interior designers and home decorators will always advise you on creating a cosy look in bedrooms. This is something that I completely agree with. Bedrooms are meant for relaxation and comfort. By making things cosy, you will definitely be taking a step in the right direction.
To give your bedroom a cosy makeover, use velvet cushions and fabric bedframes paired with metal lamps and wooden bedsides. You can also play around with textiles and textures to give your space a comforting and cosy feel. The idea here is to introduce soft visual elements to your space to make it look visually appealing. You really don’t need to splurge on doing so.
Convert your kitchen into a living space
In my experience, most people consider kitchens as a utility area and not as a living space. However, if you’ve noticed the best modern kitchen designs, they are all designed to double up as living areas. So, take a hint and give your kitchen a makeover.
To convert your kitchen into a living space, introduce large chairs, stylish accessories and throw in decorative elements. If you have an open kitchen, you can consider using the same design in your living room to create a seamless look.
Add warmth to your bathroom
Most modern bathrooms are designed in neutral colours. While this makes a bathroom look clean, it is a minimalist look which may sometimes come off as bland. And trust me – a bland bathroom is not Pinterest worthy, no matter how refined it may look.
You can battle this problem simply by adding some warm elements to your bathroom space. Pair natural marble and white finishes with a touch of pink to create a warm look. You can also add a large metal framed mirror in the bathroom to make it instantly look bigger. And, if you want to take things further, consider including copper or gold elements to give your space a regal look.
Glamourize your living space
Glamorous living spaces are one of the hottest trends on Pinterest right now. Thankfully, you don’t have to break the bank in trying to glamourize your space. All you need is a selection of the right décor elements.
To create a glamorous living room, add rugs, designer coffee tables, velvet chairs and cushions to your space. In addition, you can also use budget-friendly furnishings such as sofas, colour pop prints and luxe coffee tables. These furnishings may not be expensive, but they will definitely lend a huge visual impact to your space.
Minimalize your dressing area
If there’s one area of the home where you must stick with a minimalist look, it’s your dressing area. Dressing areas are meant for a specific purpose, and there’s no point in making them overly fancy.
The trick behind creating a minimalistic dressing area is keeping things to a bare minimum. A minimalist dressing table, a large framed mirror, a rug and a few prints are all you need to create this look.
Stylize your reading area
Your reading space is one space which deserves special attention. Even if you don’t spend much time in your reading space, you should definitely consider stylizing it. This also makes you want to spend more time reading.
To stylize your reading area, consider adding a rug, velvet chairs, ceramic vases and copper tables. This will immediately give your reading area a chic look and make it worthy of being shared on Pinterest.
So, there you go! These are some of my top decorating ideas that will help you make your home Pinterest worthy of a budget. You can always choose to include expensive furnishings and décor if you need to. But, these ideas in themselves will make your home incredibly stylish.
