New home furnishings can be pricey, but adding even just one item to your space can transform the look of a room all while keeping to your budget. Whether you’re looking for a pop of color or a hint of texture, you don’t need to take on a huge, expensive project to reach your design dreams. Here are a few furnishings to inspire your next budget-friendly home refresh.
Whether you use it to put your feet up and relax, or simply as a surface to lay out magazines, plants and other decorative items, an ottoman is a great way to add color and texture to a space. It can even be utilized for extra seating if you are planning to host friends or family. Ottomans come in many different colors, shapes and sizes to compliment any theme, color scheme or style.
Add comfort and style to your living room, bedroom and even your dining room by adding one or two upholstered armchairs. Buy new or upcycle an outdated piece to add a bit of DIY style. Highlight characteristics, such as patterned fabric, grommets and even the legs, as they can add a hint of personality to any space.
Adding a small table into any room of your home can not only offer style and design, but also storage space. Place an accent table in an empty corner and add decor, such as a lamp, to brighten up the room. Or, put an accent table by the window and add some houseplants to liven up the space. Like the armchair, you can upcycle a table with stain or paint to fit your taste.
If you’re looking to add contrast, patterns and texture, start from the bottom: an area rug. Because you can find rugs in nearly any color, pattern, shape, size or texture, your options are endless. A rug may also bring an entire room together, tying in color schemes or offsetting neutral colors. Get creative with smaller rugs by layering them for added texture and a bit of unique, custom styling.
Don’t take on a large, expensive home project just to refresh your space. Even just one simple piece can help change or update your space, saving you money and stress. Stay on budget and in style when planning your next interior design project.
