Many people, including newlyweds, might not want to spend a huge amount of money, especially if they intend to make savings a priority. If you too have been thinking about giving your home interiors a new look but are worried about the cost, here’s some good news! Below, Pankaj Poddar, co-founder of Hipcouch, shares some decor tips, tricks and ideas.
Start the design process by taking note of the existing layout and making the best use of what you have.
Find an architectural focal point, like a large window and arrange your seating around it. Think about the kind of look and vibe you intend your home to have — rustic, or modern and minimalistic?
Buying a large piece of furniture that looks great but is not comfortable would be a waste of space. Mixing and matching furniture can add a fun element to the room and increase its aesthetic appeal. This allows greater flexibility to move things around and change how a room looks without spending much time or effort.
The colour palette plays a huge role in dictating the overall vibe of your home. Choosing neutral colours can make the room look open, spacious, classy, and timeless. You can introduce an element of style by adding a textured paint wall finish.
When you’re on a shoestring budget and want to buy some furniture, the best place to look at is a flea market or garage sale. You can buy plain wooden chairs and tables and give them a fresh coat of paint to match the colours of your home.
Even when shopping at a flea market or garage sale, the trick is to choose pieces that can serve more than one purpose. Old trunks can be refurbished and can work as great storage options as well as coffee tables. Adding photos or memorabilia on a bare wall works as a great decor idea.
