Little Changes Make Big Impressions - Budget Interior Design Ideas

You don't always have to make huge changes in your home to make an impression. Sometimes the little changes are more effective. Budget interior design ideas are exactly that, spend only a small amount of money. And in today's economic climate, many of us are having to watch what we spend. Let me give you a few ideas.

    I know this may sound strange, but just by having a de-clutter of your home can make a huge difference. Move out items that have been laying around for ages that you no longer like or are not in keeping with your theme. Get rid of dying plants or old dried flowers. Clear out old newspapers and tatty magazines. Have a sort through your books and just keep the ones you want. Then give your home a really good clean and polish. Already your home is looking better!
    If storage is a problem, invest in a few storage baskets or boxes. Not only do they look good, but they can also hide items you do not want on show.
    Vintage suitcases are a great way to store all sorts of items and they look great around your home.
    Change a few lampshades as these can give your room a totally new look.
    Buy a couple of inexpensive lamps to change the lighting in your rooms.
    Change the handles on cupboards around the home. There is such an amazing choice available and it can totally transform a piece of furniture. It's also a great thing to do to kitchen cupboards to give them a new look.
    If you have things in your home you don't want or like, see if any family or friends are in the same situation and have a swap around. Remember, one person's junk is another person's treasure.
    If your sofas are looking worn and you cannot afford to replace them, you can buy slip over covers, or just add a couple of fun throws. Even sew some new cushion covers.
    If your carpets are looking old and worn, then as a DIY project, you can always take them up and laminate the floors for a new look,and add a couple of rugs. I personally find this is one of the greatest ways to transform a room. The laminates are so good now and really reasonable in cost from your local DIY stores.
