Keeping Your Home On-Trend for Less

18 Sep

Fashion is important to a lot of people, but so is money. And although we might like to redecorate every six months, it simply isn’t fiscally realistic for most people. Not to mention, it’s a huge inconvenience; your whole home is thrown out of sync for a few days. However, there are ways to keep in step with style without breaking either the bank or the labor laws, and here are a few you might like to consider.

• Some sofas have removable covers, meaning that you can change the cover as often as you fancy. Of course, you can change cushion covers, too, and sofas might be expensive, but sofa throws are often cheap.

• Rotate the pictures hanging on your walls and consider changing them by season – framed wrapping paper makes a surprisingly effective and inexpensive Christmas decoration, for example.

• Rather than letting all your ornaments and centrepieces clutter the place up and gather dust all year round, use them sparingly and swap them around often. This way there will always be something new and fresh to look at, and your space will have an air of being constantly updated.

• You’d be amazed how much you can transform a room simply by buying a new rug. Look for a variety of textures as well as shades, and stick, where possible, to plain colors – they date less easily than patterns and elaborate designs. Move rugs around your home and experiment with putting them in different places.

• For a weekend project, update your curtains. Curtains are cheap – particularly if you learn how to make them yourself out of inexpensive fabrics – and they’re not as hard as you might think to take down and hang up. They also have the ability to transform and update a room instantly!
