Creating a well-designed home can be challenging and expensive. But it doesn't have to be. Interior designers spend years coming up with creative ways to give their clients more bang for their buck. We have learned a few simple tricks along the way.
You can make almost anything look brand new with paint. If you want to update your kitchen, get rid of that outdated chandelier, or trash that old wallpaper but you don't have the budget for anything new - solve it with paint!
You can paint your kitchen cabinets a lot quicker than you think with products like these.
There is no need for stripping, priming, or even removing your cabinet doors! This paint is low odor and low VOC. Give your kitchen an instant face lift in just one day!
You can buy metallic spray paint to cover those outdated light fixtures and even your existing cabinet hardware. Paint is the most inexpensive way to change the look of your home.
Peel and stick wallpaper is one of my favorite things to use for a quick update. Apply it to recessed cabinet doors or drawer interiors, create an accent wall, or even put it on the ceiling in a small room. I love going into a powder room and seeing a fun paper on the ceiling. It adds height and dimension to your space.

We all know about pillow shams for our bedroom. Those are fantastic! But did you know you can also get pillow covers for your throw pillows? That's a game changer. Throw pillows can sometimes cost $50 or more a piece! Now you can get a huge variety of pillow covers to go right over the top of your existing pillows. You can even change them out seasonally for a festive vibe.
Clear the Clutter
One of the quickest ways for your home to look messy and unorganized is to have clutter everywhere. Buying baskets and totes to store items in is very inexpensive and you'll be amazed at the difference. When everything has a designated place, your home looks like a freshly designed space every day.
Nothing makes a room fall flat quicker than one that doesn't have any greenery or florals. You need to mix natural elements into any space. They give life to your home. If you are like me and you have a black thumb, quality faux arrangements can make all the difference. Use florals and greenery that coordinate with your space. Place them on counters, in bookcases, and on tabletops. It's the perfect final touch to any space.
These are all simple ways to help make your space look like a professional styled it for you. You can purchase any of the items I've listed here just by clicking the description below each picture.
