Living on a budget doesn't mean that you need to scrimp on style when it comes to home design. There are plenty of designer trends that you can try today to make your home feel more stylish. Since trends tend to come and go, there is no need to break the bank on designer detail in your home. Here are four trends you can incorporate into your home's interior today.
1. Trunks as Coffee Tables
Finding secondhand trunks can be a great way to add character to your space and give your living room a worldly feel. These can be great for storing blankets and pillows in while at the same time doubling as a coffee table. You might have an old trunk you can dust off in storage, or you can search for trunks at garage sales or secondhand shops.
2. A Wall of Frames
Quickly give your living space a facelift with various smaller frames arranged together in a fun pattern on your wall space to make up a larger scene. Frames can incorporate smaller pictures, coming up with a theme such as flowers or birds so that all framed pictures come together in a larger pattern. Arrange frames on the floor first so you can map out the shape you would like for these to be displayed. Painting all frames the same color can be easy to do and spray paint can speed up the process.
3. Wooden Crates for Shelving
A unique yet functional look that can work both in living rooms and bedrooms is stacking country-style crates on top of each other to make impromptu shelving throughout your home. Crates can be found at grocery stores, secondhand shops, or even at crafting or hardware stores. These can be sanded down and painted or left as-is for a more rustic look in your home.
4. Wallpaper is Making a Comeback
Wallpaper isn't just for your grandma anymore. There are fresh, trendy patterns that can quickly update wall space in your home. If you aren't sure that you want to commit to an entire room or hallway, try out accent walls in the kitchen or bathroom. The great thing is that wallpaper can be replaced when new patterns or colors become popular down the line.
Setting the scene in your living area can be fun if you have the DIY spirit, and can make your house feel like home. Don't sacrifice style just because you are on a budget. There are plenty of unique looks you can incorporate into your home. Budget items can look great and can be made up of items easy to find or that you may already have around your home.
