Step One: Know Your Stores

If you’re designing on a budget make sure you do your research. Some stores might seem like a good way to cut corners but if you need a new couch in two years, it probably wasn’t a wise purchase. Hang on to warranties and read customer feedback online, that way you’ll know what to skip or buy.

Step Two: Lights, Camera, Lights!

Lighting makes a huge difference in a smaller space. If you lack windows or natural light, add different lamps, string lights, or ceiling lights. Mix and match heights, sizes, and bulbs for a warm feeling.

Step Three: Go Green

Adding green, fake or real, creates an inviting home. It’s easy, fast, and if you mess up you can just throw them away. If you have a black thumb, there are many options besides the real deal for a little more money.

There are a lot of hacks to follow in case you don’t want to spend an entire Saturday figuring it out.
