5 Ways to Make your Home look Elegant on a Budgetby Spaces Designed Hi, I am Komal Sheth - Founder of Spaces Designed
Flip through any magazine today, be it fashion or home-related, and you'll be bathed in page after page of elegant, luxurious environments. It's no secret either that those rooms don't come cheap. That being said, smart shopping, a keen eye and a willingness to hire professional services of home remodeling in Austin, TX can go far these days in creating chic interiors without having to fork over large sums of cash. So, here's a list of five straightforward and affordable, designer-approved ways to make your home look more elegant.
Make a Big Statement
Large-scale art adds a bit of theater to any space. Single large images, diptychs, and triptychs all deliver big impact wherever they are hung. High-resolution images can be printed at a very large scale then cut appropriately and framed in pre-fabricated frames bought at IKEA. This way, your costs will be low and your decorating impact monumental.
Drama is King
Who wouldn't love to wrap an entire room in an elegant wall covering for that over-the-top-look? If your budget won't allow for the whole room, select one wall or one section (the back of a niche, or other architectural detail) and create a splash with the paper there. To enhance the high-style look, match the paint on the surrounding walls to that of the paper. You'll be pleased how far the elegance of your interior space will go.
Find a Focus
Every room must have a focal point. Fireplaces are decorating gold for just this reason. They focus everything in the room. If you don't have a fireplace, you must create focus or direct attention to something else that's focus worthy (like a view). A great trick for creating immediate focus is a larger than life mirror, either hung or casually leaned against a wall. Hit up your favorite local retailers for gigantic framed mirrors and invest knowing you'll get lots of bang for your decorating buck.
One High-Style Piece
If your budget prevents you from filling your room with high-style, designer pieces then snag one mind-blowing piece and spin the rest of the room around it. A dramatic cabinet, an unusual antique chair or a super-chic cocktail table can add all the punch needed even if the rest of the room does not carry the same decorating wattage. When this is the case, it's great to dress out the room in similar, neutral colors (tans, taupe, and cream are great for this) to heighten the impact of your designer piece.
Splashes of elegance
There’s no better way to lend your interior space an elegant look than by painting it with the right colors. While there are hundreds of shades you can choose from, a neutral color palette is sure to hit the right note in your home. You can’t go wrong with the classic white and grey combo as well. These tried-and-true shades will lend an air of sophistication and affluence to the rooms.
With the above tips, you can give your home that timeless elegance. So, what are you waiting for? Hire professional services of interior design in Austin, TX and convert your boring interiors into an elegant one with the designer’s smart interior design choices.
