At Blinds & Designs here in San Francisco, many of our customers tell us they’d like to make home updates, but they’re afraid to break the bank. Luckily, we know many ways to maintain a budget and still get the changes you want to see. Read on to discover our tips!
Start with a Plan
Remember, you don’t have to do everything at once—knock out a little at a time, and be sure to do it right. Choose the first room that’s important to you, and do what needs to be done to update that space, and then move on to the next. That way, you can spread out the expense with long-range planning.
Make a List
Start by making a list of everything you want to accomplish. Remember to include what kind of vibe you want and how you want to use the space. Once your list is complete, start looking at how much you can realistically spend. Setting up a reasonable budget will allow you to enjoy the decorating process. Now that you know how much you can spend, review your list to determine which changes you can make.
Cutting Corners is Ok
Remember that you can make small changes to achieve some big impacts. Instead of changing the color in an entire room, consider just adding new accents, such as a couple of throw pillows, a metal-framed mirror, or a throw rug. These small changes can make a big impact and help freshen your room without breaking your budget.
Add Value to Your Home
Sometimes, the window can be the best place to invest money, because it’s often the first thing people notice when they walk in the room. And with Hunter Douglas, we can help you find just the right treatment that will transform your room while keeping you on budget. For example, if your dream design includes elegance, European flair, or cozy country comfort, consider plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas. You can choose from Heritance® hardwood shutters, NewStyle® hybrid shutters, and Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ shutters. Or if you’re looking more for soft window treatments with a modern flair, turn to Silhouette® Window Shadings, Pirouette® Window Shadings, or Nantucket™ Window Shadings from Hunter Douglas. These beautiful, sheer horizontal shades provide a modern look by combining the functionality of a blind with the beauty of a fabric shade.
