Decorating on a Budget? Here are some tips!

Decorating on a Budget? Here are some tips!

Decorating your house can be costly, however, it doesn’t have to be that way. Remember there are things you can do to keep the spending to a minimum. Here are some of our top tips to help you decorate on a tight budget:

1. Plan

When doing any home improvement project such as decorating, proper planning is essential. This becomes more important if you are trying to work on a strict budget. Do some legwork before starting and write down all the associated costs. This way you’ll be able to compare costs and decide which items are the best ones to use.

2. Accentuate with colour

An expensive wallpaper doesn’t always equate to a ‘wow’ factor. You can use ordinary paint to accentuate a room’s feature. Whether you are into using colours from the same palette or contrasting colours, you’d be surprised at what you can achieve from using paint alone.

3. Call in the professionals

DIYs are fine but remember that it can cost you more in the long run. Since you are not well-equipped with decorator’s tools, you might need to purchase these before you start. Not to mention the mistakes that you may make along the way, which can be costly to fix.
Hiring a decorator may cost you some additional finance, but it is better to leave things to professionals.

4. Ask your decorator to buy your paints and materials

One advantage obtained from hiring a professional decorator is that they have connections that will allow them to purchase high-quality decorating equipment and paint at a fraction of the cost compared to your local hardware store. Not only does this ensure that you get the right kind of tools, it also saves you added expenditure.
