If your home has turned from lavish to lackluster then it’s time to revamp your space with an easy style makeover! To help you get started, the designers at CORT have provided some helpful tips to give your home an entirely new look without breaking the bank.

  1. Add Color – One of the easiest ways to redesign your space is by adding a burst of color. Revive your living space with an accent wall using a vibrant paint or wallpaper. If you are tired of your furniture, head to the paint store before the dumpster. Adding a fresh, new color to your old dresser, table or cabinet can breathe new life into any piece. Consider adding textured wall covering, like grasscloth, to the back of your bookshelf to create interest. Just remember to use color sparingly. Stick with one or two ways to add color into your space. You don’t want to go overboard!
  2. Mix It Up – This design tip comes without a price tag. You can redesign your space at no cost simply by rearranging your furniture. Take a step back from your current layout and think about how you could relocate certain pieces to create a more functional space. If you are looking to break up two areas of living space, use a sofa or larger furniture piece to create a division between the two areas. The new arrangement may end up opening up the room, giving you more living space.
  3. Accessorize – Instead of focusing on replacing more expensive items like tables, sofas or cabinets, direct your attention to adding new accent pieces, which make a big statement with minimal cost. For instance, give your sofa a new look by switching out your pillows. You can also add a decorative bowl to your table to add texture or a pop of color to the space. Consider freshening up your wall décor with new prints or hanging shelves on your walls to display accent pieces or family photos. Another easy design trick is to revamp your old cabinet or desk by adding new decorative knobs for a touch of personality.

Giving your home a design makeover doesn’t need to cost a fortune. There are simple and affordable ways to decorate your space to give it the design revival it needs!
