Develop Decorating 'Cents'

You've decided that you want to give your room a makeover but don't have the big budget to go along with the project. Rest assured that you can create a cherished room with some budget-friendly tips. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Swap accessories for a new look. Keep boxes handy to store accessories that you've discovered at flea markets or discount shops. Interchange these accessories when you need a new spark for a room. Changing pillows or throws can inexpensively enhance a design scheme.

Try a new furniture arrangement. Transform the look of a room to gain a new perspective simply by moving the furniture around.

Shop in outlets or discount centers. Many moderately-priced stores offer furniture that can complement a room. Mix and match a few expensive pieces with a few reasonably priced ones to balance out the room and your budget.

Enliven a room with new colors. Paint the walls a new hue or change slipcovers and curtains for a relatively simple transformation. Sewing your own draperies can save you a lot of money. For those who lack craftiness, no-sew seam binders can make creating curtains a snap.

Do it yourself. Hiring an interior decorator always costs more. Whenever possible, try to do the work yourself, and you'll enjoy the money-saving results.
