It’s easy for many people to look around their homes and dream of the upgrades they might make. But all too often, those upgrades might be out of their budget. If you’re in that boat, you’re not alone. As it turns out, though, you can make some quick changes affordably, making your home seem more elegant. At F&R Interiors here in Los Angeles, we have a few ideas on things you can try. Read on to learn more!
Quick Change Without Spending at All
Declutter your décor! Less is more when it comes to accent pieces, so now’s a good time to cut back. Determine which of your décor pieces you really love and take down the rest. Store the leftovers for a future rotation, or even consider letting them go altogether.
Spend a Little
Add throw pillows and blankets to make your room seem more sophisticated. Be sure to get a mix of different sizes and textures to add visual depth, as well as a mix patterns and solids. In your kitchen and bathrooms, you can add or replace cabinet and drawer handles and pulls. Also consider upgrading doorknobs. It’s a quick way to modernize an area and make it look expensive without spending more than you’d like.
For Slightly More Out of Pocket
Try faux tile and hardwood solutions. Manufacturing improvements have made these products look more realistic than ever. You can create a new backsplash in your kitchen with peel-and-stick tiles or quickly change a small area of flooring using vinyl or laminate without spending nearly what you would on the genuine products. Yet your room will look more up to date and elegant than ever. Plus, it’s a great way to add some color and interest to an area that might have otherwise been neglected.
Laser-Focus Your Spend
If you have the budget for something a little more expensive but not yet for an entire makeover, be sure to focus the money on something that will create a big impact. For example, get a statement piece like a new couch to elevate the vibe of a room. Or get new window fashions or enhance the ones you already have. Choose distinguished coverings such as Silhouette® or Pirouette® window shadings to bring something new to the space, or consider adding custom side panels to your current treatments.
