I’m an interior design professional – how to make your home more expensive on a budget with 3 easy changes
YOU don’t have to spend a fortune to make your home chic and chic.
A TikTok video confirms that you can transform your home to look expensive without paying designer prices.
Interior design expert Dani has posted her four tips for making your home look expensive, and they don’t cost a lot.
She says it’s all about style and sophistication, both of which can be achieved through discount shopping and basic cleaning.
Dani’s expensive idea begins with the infusion of natural stones into home decor.
“Natural stones, like marble and quartz, scream high-end,” she says.
But that doesn’t mean you have to remodel kitchen counters or bathroom sinks with it.
“The key is to incorporate smaller pieces of marble or stone into your design; almost any element with an organic or natural feel will look sophisticated,” says Dani.
If you can’t afford to buy an actual stone, a viewer has made a suggestion.
“They also sell marble contact paper at Walmart! If you can’t afford new furniture, this is a great way to upgrade existing furniture,” he says.
A free tip for improving your space is simple: get rid of all your clutter.
This can be tricky if you have a lot of roommates or a family, but it gives the space an obvious upgrade.
Dani says, “Clutter can ruin the look of any room.
Even if you spend a lot of money on decoration and furniture, your house will still look messy if there are random things everywhere.
Maximizing space is key, and Dani suggests filling that space with high-quality materials and fabrics.
“An affordable way to do this is to incorporate beautiful fabrics like linens and weaves into your throw pillows and even your bed,” she says.
Finally, incorporating and nurturing wildflowers and plants in your home is Dani’s idea of sophistication.
She says, “Don’t be afraid to reach for some wild greens and flowers. I love putting them in vases and sprinkling them around my house.”
Designing on a budget is frustrating, which made Dani’s viewers grateful for her advice.
“Wow. I really need this. Thanks,” one viewer commented, while another said, “Wow, thanks for sharing your wonderful decorating ideas.”
