Now that spring is in full swing, you might be wanting to upgrade your home and make some freshening up changes. At Windows & More here in Osage Beach, many of our customers ask for tips on how to make some quick changes—and especially on how to stay on budget when they begin to update their homes. If you’d like some ideas, read on to learn more!
When You First Start
You should start by understanding the scope of all the changes you’d like to make. Create a list of everything you want to accomplish, and how you want to use each space. Once your list is complete, decide how much you can realistically spend without feeling guilty. Setting up a reasonable budget will allow you to enjoy the decorating process. Now that you know how much you can spend, review your list to determine which changes you can reasonably make.
Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference
Remember that not every change has to monumental. For example, if you’re looking to add color to your room, you may not need to purchase a new couch—instead, consider saving money by adding a bright couch slipcover or just some new decorative throw pillows. Add an area rug to define a conversation area or add pizzazz to any room. Try placing your rug at an angle, such as under a coffee table, to help it stand out. Rugs are a great way to add a new color to any room, or freshen up otherwise dull floors. These small changes can make a big impact and help freshen your room without breaking your budget.
Invest in Value-Added Elements
If you notice your windows when you first walk in the room, you might get the biggest bang for your buck by simply getting new window fashions. With Hunter Douglas window treatments, you have a number of options that will fit in your design goals and budget. Plus, they’re designed to be long-lasting. For example, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow. Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades are made from a polyester fabric with a white backing facing the outside to eliminate fading, and they feature a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction for maximum energy efficiency.
