How to level up your Interior Design

Today we’re talking about how to make your home look expensive without cashing in your life savings now. I know not everyone’s budgets the same but don’t worry you no matter how big or how small your budget may be there will still be something for everyone in this post. Okay are you ready to get started!


1: Keep it clean

No matter how much money you’ve spent on your home if there’s clutter , it’s gonna feel gross if you can commit to making your bed ,picking things up off the floor and
clearing your surfaces you will start to feel better about your space and feel way more inspired to make it beautiful. And the best part the only thing cleaning costs you is your time.

2: Always have fresh flowers

You guys will not believe how much fresh flowers can add to your space not only do they give your house a splash of color and freshness but the smell is just so inviting and welcoming and it’s an added easy level of class and if you’re looking to save a few dollars skip the prearranged two bouquets and actually just buy a couple bundles of roses or hydrangeas and DIY a little bouquet yourself.

3: Hang some curtains

There’s something about curtains you guys that just drips luxury. It adds so
much to space, makes it feel bigger, more homey, more cozy and I don’t know it just like makes a random box. It feels like a luxury room I cannot explain it just try it and remember when you go to hang that. Make sure your rods are close to the ceiling, not right by the window. Now don’t just buy them and throw them up on the windows. Make sure you wash them dry them and iron them. You guys this makes all the difference in the world I’m not kidding you can buy $10 IKEA curtains which is what I have in my house and if you iron them they look like wet stone curtains and one more tip for a fuller more substantial look double up on the curtain it makes a big difference.

4: Hang your TV

Now this one shocks me how many people don’t do this there’s nothing luxurious about a plastic TV stand. Hang that . I know it can seem a little intimidating at first but let me tell you it is so worth it.
Now most TVs come with a wall mount but if yours doesn’t you can find one on Amazon for under 100 bucks and it will change the game in your living room. Your husband may be upset with you but tell them it’s worth it like I did to mine.

5: Invest your budget and things that you sit on

Okay, real talk you guys we’ve all been there before when you’re furnishing a new home and trying to keep your budget low there is a huge to kind of go cheap when it comes to investing in a sofa because it’s a very large price item. You most likely build it yourself and then every time you and your guests sit down do you regret it. I’ve been there. You’ve probably been there. Well those days are over okay. So, why am I saying all this about a sofa?
Well because we just got a new sofa and forever we’ve had an inexpensive sofa that was not very comfortable. if you’re reading this post right now and you’re planning out your budget consider investing a large percentage of your budget into your sofa. There are plenty other things that you can compromise and save money but when it comes to the one thing that you spend the majority of your time sitting on choose wisely if you guys want to know where to start and looking for great sofas I recommend to a company where you can design your oun sofa.


6: Decorate with candles and bottled matchsticks

I think these cute little bottled matchsticks are some of my favorite new decor finds. I don’t know if they’ve been out forever but I’ve noticed them popping up at a lot of different little bit cheeks around recently. Now if you don’t want to spend the money on buying them I have a trick for you get an empty spice bottle take the label off go buy some matches at the grocery store and fill the spice bottle with those matches. Don’t forget to cut a little piece of the striker off and maybe tape it underneath the bottle but then you’re good and it’s the same exact thing. It’s super cute. They are such a simple way to add a little elegant touch to your home.


7: Save money on surfaces like marble or distressed wood and DIY the look for less

I love the look of marble countertops or marble desks but I didn’t want to spend the money on it so I was able to use this really cool marble contact paper and if you guys have seen this DIY  I covered the top of my desk in marble contact paper and it actually looks real pretty nifty, pretty cheap. Another look that’s really popular right now is distressed wood instead of buying the merchandised versions of the look. Head over to Home Depot buy yourself some regular ol wood
and start doing some DIY.

8: Use used accessories!

Now I love going to Salvation Army and goodwill and some of those places because accessories are the place to definitely try to save on your budget if you go to a West Elm or you go to a target even though the items are not that expensive it all adds up. I’m telling you one thing I actually remember from my childhood is going with my mom to garage sales she would always buy vases or different glass items that maybe had a chip on a corner or things like that and she would buy them for two dollars and put them on a shelf and just turn the bottle so the chip was hidden. Hello genius!  You can reuse other people’s trash for your treasure and it looks amazing. Next time you’re at a thrift store or a goodwill or something like that take a look at their books and look at the color of the binding you can take the sleeve off and use those books to decorate in your bookshelves. Looks amazing and adds a lot of class and it’s only a dollar.

I hope that you guys love this post. I hope that no matter what’s your budget you guys were able to learn something and gain some tips and how to make your space is beautiful and really enjoy where you live!
