We all want to create a home that we can truly be ourselves in. But how often do you find yourself browsing through Pinterest or the latest interior design magazine and lusting after all those beautifully put together homes? Then you check your bank balance and realize you’ll have to stick to just looking on in envy.

With a bit of research and creativity, you can make your home more stylish than you ever imagined. 

  1. Use the voucher sites 

Sign up to some of the better-known voucher sites and you’ll receive emails with all of the latest deals every day. Products on there are sold with up to 75% off and you can find many great brands. You can find furniture, garden accessories from, home furnishings and linens on these sites. 

Products stocks are usually limited and sell out fast so get ready to pounce on an offer when you see it. 

  1. Use furniture hacks

YouTube and Pinterest are filled with inspiration on turning basic items of furniture into unique centerpieces for your home. You may have to roll your sleeves up and get into DIY mode, but you’ll save yourself a lot of money. 

  1. Look for high street dupes

Designer items often end up inspiring products sold elsewhere, usually for a lot less money. So if you see something you love, but can’t justify the price tag, then do a little digging and you’ll find something almost identical elsewhere.

  1. Be your own interior designer

Some people have a great eye for interior design. They know exactly which colours and products work together. If you don’t have that talent, or the patience to come up with the perfect look for your home, then hiring an interior designer might seem like your only option.  It doesn’t need to be. You can study interior design techniques through online courses. Many of them are very inexpensive, and you’ll get an inside look at what an interior designer thinks about when creating the perfect home. 

An easier option? Copy a style you like. Those magazines you’ve been looking at, they are already styled by an interior designer. The hard work has already been done for you. Just copy it, making any tweaks your need to along the way. 

  1. Look for pre-loved items 

How often have you seen someone throw out old furniture when they’re redecorating, only to think ‘that’s really nice’. Well, why not give a pre-loved item a home? There are many places online that you find free or cheap furniture.  Often, the furniture has some history to it, meaning that there won’t be too many of them around. 

Final thoughts

Not many people have the budget to hire an interior designer. Yet we all want our homes to reflect our personality and sense of style. When our budgets don’t match our aspirations, it’s easy to get discouraged, but by following some of these tips, you can make your money go much further and create a truly stylish home.
