Learn how to decorate your home on a budget from interior designer Blanche Garcia in this Howcast video.


So everybody has a budget nowadays, and even when they say they don't have a budget, we all have a budget. Just make sure that your dollars make sense. Literally, make sure that you're putting your money where it's worth. And what I mean by that is that you want to make sure that they're your bigger items, that you spend a little bit more on, because they're going to be around for a lot longer, like your sofa, your bedroom furniture, maybe your dining room table.

The things that you can scrimp on a little bit are things like artwork. You can pretty much frame just about anything nowadays. So anything that's personal to you, even fabric or an old calendar can become your artwork. Throw pillows are really inexpensive. Things like accessories can change up a space from winter to fall, from season to season.

Other things that can be really inexpensive are window treatments. Maybe back in the day you had to have them made custom. Not nowadays, now you can get them what's called as a ready made. You just literally walk into the store and you can get different patterns, you can get different colors. Also paint, paint is really inexpensive and it pretty much adds value to the home and at the same time can make a bold statement, and each room can change with the different paint that you use.

So accessories can be inexpensive, paint can be inexpensive, window treatments, any of the artwork that you have anywhere can be inexpensive. And just make sure you just put a little bit more money towards the bigger pieces, and at the end of the day, you should have a really nice balance and also not break the bank.
