Affordable Ways to Create Designer Homes on a Budget

Are you looking to spruce up your home with high-end designer décor but concerned about the cost? Look no further! As an experienced interior designer, I have some tried and tested tips on how to create designer homes on a budget. Keep reading for a step-by-step guide on recreating designer looks for your home.

Why Pay More When You Can Have It All?

It's understandable why you would want a designer look in your home. After all, it adds a touch of elegance, style, and sophistication. However, rest assured that you don't have to break the bank to achieve this. With my help, you can get the look for less. Let's dive right in!

Recreating Designer Looks: A Step-by-Step Guide

Let’s take a look at an example of how to recreate one of my favorite designer pieces on a budget. I saw a beautiful ceiling light on Houzz for $497.50 and decided to recreate it for much less. Here are six simple steps to follow:

  1. Remove the wiring and original light kit from the lamp
  2. Attach the swag light kit to the top of the lamp
  3. Drill a hole directly into the middle of the bottom of the lamp
  4. Feed the wiring from the light kit through the lamp to pull out of the new hole drilled
  5. Run the wire through the chain
  6. Attach the chain to the bottom of the lamp and to the ceiling canopy for support

And voila! Your ceiling light is complete, and it looks just like the original at a fraction of the cost.

The Benefits of Creating Designer Looks on a Budget

By creating designer looks on a budget, you not only save money, but you also get to be creative and have fun while doing it. You'll realize that having designer décor doesn't have to come at the cost of style or quality. With a little creativity, you can create high-end designer décor pieces that are just as beautiful and well-made as the original.

Your Turn!

Now that you've learned how to recreate designer looks on a budget, what's stopping you from trying it out? Get creative and make your home look like a million bucks without spending that much! Remember, anything is possible when you put your mind to it. You got this!

I have worked with Shelly on several of my houses over the past 15 years.  Super impressed with the virtual organizing, custom storage, and room designs offered by Shelly. She always has so many fantastic ideas.  She even provided a folding video which allowed us to fold our clothes so that we can see them without digging to find them which is very helpful with my 2 very busy teen boys.  I highly recommend her service to everyone!!!
