Create Big Style with a Small Budget

Personal style and home décor have less to do with big budgets and more to do with thoughtful, personal style and colour choices. A small budget can still deliver a big impact.

First Impressions: The front entrance and hallways of a home are typically high traffic areas. To keep the walls looking fresh and beautiful, pick a mid-tone colour in a durable, washable paint in a matte finish to help camouflage fingerprints and scuffs. To keep this area neat and welcoming, have a home for all the odds and ends that can collect in the front hallway -- keys, mail and trinkets. Save an old dresser or cabinet and repaint it for a stylish, inexpensive hallway piece.

Powder Room Pick me up: A small room is the perfect canvas to really be creative. For a dramatic impact, try a daring colour like red or even wallpaper. Large scale patterns, even in small spaces are on-trend, so add visual interest with wall tattoos to easily customize your space.

Remember that the easiest and most inexpensive way to freshen any room is with paint. Also, try changing up a few accessories in each room like pillows and throws and that will make quite the impact on a small budget.
