Decorating On A Budget

You don’t have to go broke trying to design the perfect home. With a bit of strategy and forethought, your decor can rival that of interior design pros like Nate Berkus, Philippe Starck, or Kelly Hoppin. This is the blog for frugalists, penny-pinchers, and budget babes who refuse to sacrifice style for cash flow. Follow our guidelines and you’ll be able to create the home of your dreams while saving for what you really want…like even more soul-filled decor!


When it comes to pulling off an inexpensive home design project the best thing you can do is find furniture that can do the job of several items. Multi-use pieces like dressers that can also be changing tables, seating options upgraded to hallway decor, and buffets doubling as display cabinets are great for the junior designer on a budget. Think of it as a BOGO discount of your own creation.


How do you create a new design scheme without anything new? Hint: have you ever played musical chairs? Rather than throwing cash at a complete decor overhaul, why not cycle your current pieces into new rooms? Move your bookshelves to the bathroom, your dining table to your office, and your vanity stools to the living room. Once you’re done with the shuffle pick up one or two accent pieces to tie everything together and voila! You’ve got a whole new home at a fraction of the price.


This next one may sound counterintuitive but bear with us. Spend a bit more now so you don’t have to spend at all later. Don’t fill your home with cheap items that will break in a year. Invest in large pieces that are timeless and sturdy. They will last you a lifetime and you’ll only have to buy it once.
