As a homeowner, you might have dreams of upgrading multiple features in your house but you’re reluctant to start because you’re afraid you’ll overextend your budget. At F&R Interiors serving the greater Los Angeles area, we’re here to tell you that there are ways to stay on budget and still get the look you want for your home. Read on to learn more, or speak with one of our trained specialists today.
Set Your Budget
Whether you have a small single room to update or you want to makeover your entire home, staying within a budget can be a challenge. You might think it goes without saying, but the first thing you need to do to be successful is to set your budget. Start by looking at your finances and deciding how much you can realistically spend. If you’ve already set aside some money for things like this, you know your limits. If not, determine how much money you can spend without feeling guilty. Once you know how much you can spend, make a list of everything you’d like to do around your home. Include how you want to use each space.
Yes, You Can Cut Some Corners
Remember that even a small change can have large impact. To add color to a room, for example, you don’t necessarily need to go big—you could simply add a bright slipcover to a couch or, even easier, add some decorative throw pillows or an area rug. These small changes can make a big impact and help freshen your room without breaking your budget.
As you redecorate your home this year, remember, you want to come home to a warm, comfortable, cozy environment. Make it your own. Remember you don’t need to break the bank with real wood and high-end items. There are many new “faux” options for you to consider. Instead of marble, choose engineered quartz, or instead of hardwood floors, go with faux wood, which won’t rot or buckle like real wood. When it comes to window fashions, you have faux options as well: Hunter Douglas EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds. These cost-effective blinds have realistic depth of natural wood and come in 63 distinct colors and finishes. For that “real” wood look, consider their exclusive TruGrain® blind. This beautiful blind has the realistic depth of natural wood. You will find a large selection of the most realistic stain finishes available in faux wood blinds.
