Home decor can be tricky sometimes. In fact, achieving a simple yet elegant look on a budget can seem like rocket science. In an ideal world, we’d all have personal interior designers to help us with our home furnishings, but thanks to reality, not all of us have as much financial freedom for this.
Fortunately, there are some budget-friendly decor options out there. Yes, your home can look bougie on a budget, and none would be the wiser. So, if you’re sick and tired of living in a home with a basic look, keep reading and find out four things you could use to give your home a massive makeover.
- Abstract Art
Using wallpaper to spruce up a house is pretty common. YouTubers use them to make instructional videos all the time, and so do DIY TikTok users and Instagramers. It’s probably used more frequently because it’s an easy form of wall art and has an expensive look even though it’s cheap.
Wall art and wallpaper serve the same purpose in this regard. They can fill up an empty wall space or counter and make what was once drab and basic look luxe! The type of wall decor you choose is up to you, but if you’re going for plush and elegant, then it’s best to pick more abstract art. It gives off a fine art connoisseur vibe and gives your home a Victorian-era wealthy look.
To make things easy, you can use canvas photo prints as opposed to paying an actual artist for a custom canvas print. Canvas wall art is just as lovely as any other type of wall painting, and there are few installation difficulties since you can just hang it on a nail. If that’s just not your style, you can still opt for hanging modern art, nature art, or family portraits in your living room. However, opting for more large canvas prints looks way more luxurious.
Mirrors not only make your living space look bigger but also give it an elegant, stunning, and unique look. However, you can’t just use any old mirror to achieve this. You need to pick your frames wisely. It’s best to use a full-length mirror with a fancy frame in your living room or bedroom. Most people opt for wooden or silver-framed mirrors, but salon LED mirrors are just as good.
Having an LED vanity mirror is everything! Apart from the fact that LED lights mimic natural light, you can see every angle of your face while you’re doing your makeup, and it adds that glam look to your bedroom or bathroom. An LED mirror is a perfect addition to your home decor, and getting a large mirror always looks better.
- Fancy Lighting Fixtures
Speaking of lights, the type of fixtures you pick for your home could make it either beautiful or dull. Some of us hardly put much thought into lighting for interior décor, yet it can add much aesthetic value to your home. Some think of chandeliers and other lights when they hear of fancy lighting. However, you don’t have to get anything excessive when picking out your fixtures. The rule is not to use one type of fixture in all the rooms. It might end up looking tacky.
Pillows are both aesthetically and texturally pleasing and can go a long way to elevate each room in your house. Adding a few throw pillows here and there in each room can bring out the intricate design features in a space. For that expensive and rich mahogany look, you can opt for leather pillow covers. Nothing spells rich and stately like some nice-looking leather throw pillows. In the bedroom, you could use some soft, fur pillow covers for your ottoman or small couches and fluffy cotton pillows for your bed.
