We all want the designer interior without the designer price tag. So, how do you style your home with a fresh look without breaking the bank?
Flicking through glossy mags, filled with the most stylish and luxurious homes, we often find ourselves envious of the elegance and sophistication of the interiors design of where the rich and famous reside.
And it doesn’t end there, our Instagram and Pinterest feeds are packed with perfectly furnished living rooms and glamourous bedrooms that have us itching to give our own homes a makeover, but where do you start?
And more importantly, how do you make your dream home fit your budget?
Well, now’s the time to stop fantasying about what you would do if you won the lottery. We’ve got some top tips to help you style your home and give your digs that much needed update it’s been screaming out for, at a purse-friendly cost.
Dreaming of marble worktops and hard-wood flooring? Of course, we all are… But these glam finishes are some of the priciest materials out there. Try imitation pieces at a fraction of the cost compared to the real deal. B&Q and Wickes have a range of marble and granite imitation worktops as well as real hardwood-effect laminate.
These imitation materials and pieces look so good no one will ever know you’ve got an imposter!
You don’t have to splash out on a whole new refurb to give your kitchen a trendy new look, accenting accessories and appliances can transform the look and feel of a room without having to do any of the hard work.
Small kitchen appliances such as your kettle, toaster and coffee machine, or even just your pots and pans, can update your kitchen and going for bold colours can give it some life.
Looking for something a bit more than an update? Try renewing your refrigerator or oven, or even try integrating your appliances for a sleeker appearance.
Say goodbye to matchy-matchy interiors and try mixing up your patterns and prints. Make your interior stand out with bold colours and prominent patterns. Choose bedding, throws, cushions and curtains of distinctive designs that clash to give a modern twist to your boudoir or living space.
To finish your look off, choose a rug that brings your design together. Kukoon.com have a wide range of rugs, in every shape, size and colour – plus, an exclusive 15% off with Health Service Discounts.
