If you have always dreamt of having a beautiful home but you do not know where to start and you do not have much money, you do not have to worry too much. The first thing you will need to do of course, is to arrange your home because simply getting rid of all the junk in your home will help to transform your home. If you look at the beautiful homes in design magazines, you will notice that they are extremely neat and tidy and therefore, this is the first step to making your home beautiful.
Handmade and second hand
If you want to have beautiful things but you feel you cannot afford them, this is because you have been looking in all of the wrong places. If you go to an auction for example, you should be able to buy moroccan rug for a fraction of the cost that it would cost you to buy it brand new from a home décor store. Like this, you will see that you can also get storage units, furniture and so much more at negligible prices at auctions and second hand stores. Charity shops are another great place to go shopping because they sell lovely things for very cheap and all of your money will be going to charity which is an added bonus.
If you are a creative person, you may want to try your hand at making some gorgeous, artistic hand knotted rugs yourself. If you look online, you should see that there are tutorials on how to make them and you can use your own creativity to make them beautiful and in a theme that suits your home as well.
The importance of colour coordination
One of the biggest mistakes that we make with our homes is that we do not colour coordinate them and this is another reason that they do not look nice. Simply having your home colour washed in a light shade or in pure white to help the light reflect while colour coordinating and sticking to a colour theme for everything else that you buy could make your home look amazing. The reason that using white is recommended is that light bounces off the walls giving your home a luxurious look and also creating the illusion that your home is very big even if it is not. Most architectural and interior design principles are based on space and light. You can work both these by creating a balance between the colours that you choose for your new home.
