Interior makeovers on a budget

Giving your home a makeover can sometimes seem like an expensive project before you’ve even begun. However, that isn’t always the case. Fitted bedroom specialists, DM Design have some great design hacks that can transform a room without breaking the bank. Sometimes it’s the little touches which make a big difference to your home.

Restoration
Before you consider buying new furniture and accessories, consider what you already have – can you restore it into something beautiful? Recycling what you’ve already got is a great way to create decorative items to improve your home’s interior design. Whether you upholster some old furniture or even something as simple as turn jam jars into candle holders and vases, use a pile or use candles to decorate an empty fireplace, you should check what you’ve got at your disposal before buying anything new.

Add life into your room
Bringing the outdoors indoors helps to really bring your room to life. Growing fresh herbs in the kitchen, or having potted plants in your home, really brings your interior up-to-date, and is a very fresh and affordable addition. Have more fun by mixing up plant pots between vintage and classic around your home.

A lick of paint
Are you bored and tired of the same old doors around your home? Before you think about buying new doors, try painting them a different colour. This technique is best suited to homes with plenty of space, but changing the colours of the doors throughout your home from white to black is a brilliant way to change the dynamic of the whole home. Limited on time? Just paint the outer-edges for an extreme 3D effect.

A touch of luxury
Luxury doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Little touches such as layering your accessories can add an extra element of luxury to your home. Whether it’s in the bedroom with layers of blankets, throws and cushions, or rugs and furniture in other rooms, layering is a great way to achieve a new dimension. Mix and match your textures and patterns as well if you are feeling brave.

Embrace the light
Adding mirrors to a room can amplify any light from the windows and lights and make everything brighter, creating the illusion of more space. Need another tip? Place lamps in front of mirrors to amplify this effect.
