Getting the Most From Your Home’s Budget

Get your home looking spectacular for little money. Your local REALTORS have tips and tricks for making your home look great for less.

While shopping, ask store managers and salespeople if any items you are considering will be on discount in the near future. Many times, they will know of an impending sale or what items are about to be on clearance. This may save you hundreds of dollars over the course of designing your home.

Rather than purchasing an entire set of furniture or bedding that match, mix it up by selecting items that give your home a more personal feel. Piecing together furniture and décor from several different outlets gives your home the personal touch you’ve been wanting.

If you have any experience sewing, put it to use by sewing your own linens. This will help allocate funds from your budget to more décor.

Always leave room in your budget for unexpected additions to your home’s décor. Sometimes you will run into the perfect sign, picture or addition to your home. These items often pop up randomly when you least expect it, so be prepared.

Spruce up older items already in your home. Move furniture from room to room to make both the room and the furniture seem more lively. Place a slipcover over that old chair, or make the living room bookshelf the new home for family pictures.

There are many options available to you as a homeowner, so don’t be afraid to get creative. For more examples, ask your local REALTOR  for cool ideas they’ve seen in other homes.
