For anyone that’s passionate about their interior design, the idea of having a designer home is definitely at the top of their bucket list. Unfortunately, with the prices of designer homes it can be hard to imagine being able to afford to turn your home into one. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks that you can apply to your home which will make your home look purely designer, without the price tag. Here are some ideas for you to consider for your home.
First and foremost, all of the designer homes these days are completely minimalistic. To even begin to achieve a designer home, you should make your best effort into minimizing the furniture and clutter in your home. This is easily achieved by building stylish and contemporary storage cupboards to keep all of your belongings in, and simply leaving out necessary furniture alongside your best ornaments. If the ornaments match your decor then you’re onto a winner.
One thing that many people fail to do when designing the decor and layout for their home, is to get advice. Seeking help from a designer like Sasha deBretton will allow you to get some help in designing the home that you’re after. What better way to achieve the home of your dreams than through using a professional interior designer? They can go through with you what kind of feel and look you want to achieve in your home, and help you plan everything out.
Shabby chic is really in style these days, and the best part about it is that you can design a piece of furniture yourself from the furniture you already own! If you’ve got an old wardrobe, why not make any repairs that it needs, cut some cute holes in the doors, add fabric behind the holes to hide the interior and give it a good lick of paint? You will have a totally new piece of furniture. The best part? No one else will have that design in their home because it’s totally unique. Designer home = uniqueness.
Instead of spending loads of money on new furniture, consider upcycling your current pieces to give a whole new look to your home!
Brands don’t matter
Probably a very contradictory statement, but brands don’t actually matter unless you’re in some sort of clique that checks what brands you have in your home. If you see a design that you like then there’s no need to spend thousands if you can create the look yourself! For example, if you see some drapes that you’d love to have, why not get similar ones and get creative with a sewing machine and some fabric dye? Much alike upcycling, it will make your home more unique!
Try these four ideas to easily achieve a designer home look, for a fraction of the cost! Style doesn’t have to be expensive. Remember, the more unique the better, so let your creative style flow!
