If you want your home's interior to look unique and personal and have a space that really expresses your own style, you can pay an interior decorator thousands of dollars to redo the space from top to bottom. However, you may not have thousands of dollars. In many cases, you can add some personality to your home with just a few simple touches and a much more limited budget, but still end up with a space you love. Note a few tips on how to do this yourself in every room of your home.
Reupholster or refinish the furniture
New furniture can be very expensive, but new upholstery or a fresh paint job on your current furniture can be much cheaper, while still giving your pieces an updated and fresh look. Reupholstering and repainting furniture also allows you to create a cohesive look in the room, something that may be missing if you've bought individual furniture pieces over the years or only have second-hand pieces.
Choose a fabric or paint colour that expresses your taste; this might be something very traditional, in warm and rich earth tones, or something modern, such as slate grey. This can give your home a brand new look and feel, but for far less money than buying new pieces.
Install artwork and accessories
You don't need to spend lots of money to upgrade your home's artwork, and this can easily make your home more personalized to you. Shop thrift stores or second-hand shops for unique paintings, and repaint cheap frames to make them seem upgraded and modern. Cover a wall with artwork rather than hanging just one or two stark pieces, and add hanging accessories that match your personality, such as tapestry, beads, or coloured glass.
Order custom blinds
Blinds are a great choice of window treatment for any room, as they're compact, don't get in the way of foot traffic, and won't overwhelm a window. Custom blinds can be made of several different types of materials, including wood, metal, or vinyl, so you can choose a light and bright wood for a beach-inspired decor or metal blinds for a more modern home. Blinds can also be made with a certain type of design that is visible when the blinds are closed, so that they look like a piece of art and not just bland window treatments. This is a very affordable way to dress up your space and make the windows stand out.
