5 Budget Friendly Take Away Design Tips

1. Create a New Mood with Color

It’s important to consider how the natural light and other architectural features impact the feel of a space. Incorporating a moody color palette (like in this Modern English Country kitchen) can play up a dramatic ambience for your home!

2. Paint an Old Wood Floor!

Painted wood floors can look amazing and solve flooring problems, too. In our own home we have several areas of wood floors that don’t match the floors in other rooms. Maybe paint is the answer!

3. Double the Impact of Creative Storage

Lidded baskets are among my all-time favorite storage pieces. People often ask where I keep extra pillows, blankets and seasonal decor! Baskets are my go to solution. Double the potential storage space and design impact with two baskets behind a sofa, under a console or near chairs.

4. Divide and Conquer the Room!

I love this solution for a small room or a long wall. This is another idea I’ve considered for my own living room. Freestanding bookcases add character and storage, break up a long wall (or long room) and create a cozier niche for furniture.

5. Be Bold with Blues

While I love the classic look of navy blue and white, I think utilizing several shades of blue brings a fresh modern coastal feel to a space.
