With the rising popularity of thrift shops and online flash sales, it's clear to see that everyone loves a bargain. Well, you don't have to downgrade your taste to be thrifty, especially inside of the home. Telegraph.com has shared some helpful tips on how to style and manage your home while adhering to a budget. Check out the hints below:
- One man's trash is another's treasure: You don't have to spend a ton of money to decorate your home with one-of-a-kind trinkets and furnishings. Try shopping at a local flea market or yard sale to complete your home's look. Whether you're searching for throw rugs or vases, you have a good chance of finding something you love when you think outside of the box.
- Refinish old furnishings: Do you have hand-me-down furniture that you don't know what to do with? Well, you're in luck. Vintage décor is really in right now. Try polishing these items to restore their original shimmer. If you have an end table that is chipped, a simple fix is to place a decorative placemat on top of it. No one will even know it's damaged.
- Trim your windows: "No house is complete without lavish curtains. They dress a room, setting its tone and raising the spirits," Genevieve Fox writes in an article for The Telegraph. You've heard of trimming a Christmas tree, but why don't you try decorating your home's windows with curtains or drapes? The great thing about curtains is that they can help complete any design scheme. No matter what look you're going for, you can find the right curtain or drapery by browsing the selection at Half Price Drapes.
