Your Home Can Do Without These Decor Items
Who knew it was possible to style a space while saving money in the process?
There’s nothing wrong with being frugal and scrimping on extra accessories for the home. However, whatever your budget may be, you still need to make sure that your space is beautiful and valuable as it reflects who you are. Believe it or not, giving your home a makeover doesn’t have to cost a lot—it is simply the process of streamlining everything you own down to the key items. Check out which pieces you can leave out of your wishlist below:
1. Random knickknacks
From thousands of bunny figurines, decorative tea cups, and owl clocks sold in-store, it can be very easy to go overboard with the cutesy decor. If it doesn't go with the theme of your home or it won't add something interesting to your existing vignette, it's best to put the items you're eyeing back on the rack.
2. Matching furniture sets
You might think you’re getting a great deal by buying everything in one go. In reality, however, all it does is make your room look tacky. Investing in only a few high-quality items while mixing and matching styles, textures, or materials will get you more value for your money—it makes the home look extra fancy, too!
3. Mass production art reprints
Remember, it’s better to stick to a contemporary original than settle for a well-known, historical knock-off. Using more modern pieces add hints of originality to a space—letting you personalize your home.
4. On-trend pieces
It’s always fun to experiment with trends, but trying out ten at once can make your home look a little too overdecorated. To avoid this, you need to learn to layer in details—start with a neutral palette, followed by a classic furniture piece, and a couple of accents. You can always add or take out items if you want to shake things up later.
5. Excessive fluorescent lighting
We've said it a million times before—lighting can make or break a room. Switch out your dated 90s chandeliers and bar lighting for smaller mood lights in the form of lamps for an instant homey feel.
