Things that make your home look cheap!


 People are always wanting their home to stand out from their neighbours or friends, but a lot of the time it can cost an awful lot to design your home. Here are just of few things that can make your home look on the cheaper side!


Furniture Sets. You may think that going to a big boxed store and purchasing a complete matching bedroom suite would enhance the look of your room, this isn’t always that case! A lot of the time these sets don’t fit into your space unless your room is a complete square, and to be honest the quality lacks from big boxed stores who sell in mass production and often you suffer from massive mark ups. Matching isn’t always better, try something new like 1 round end table and 1 rectangle end table, two different style of lamps, experiment with different types of fabrics the possibilities are endless when trying new and improved interior designs for your home.

Overdone Themes. To be honest unless it is a kid’s room you are decorating themes should probably stay out of the home. This can look very tacky and very cheap. Instead pick a style or figure out your style and decorate according to that. For example choose what color you would like to decorate around. Pick out some accents that would match/offset that particular color you picked out. Get some simple not drastic overdone art work for the walls, with colors that match the color theme for that room! Try not to put too many small art pieces on the walls as this can sometimes look a little cluttered, I personally like bigger pictures and I usually focus on 1 wall and only put 1 larger picture on it. For me it just looks a lot cleaner and sophisticated.

Cheesy Décor. Unfortunately there are so many décor pieces out there that should probably stay in our grandmother’s attics. For example things like owl clocks, bunny figurines, sail boat curtain rods, flower emblems/symbols or decals or any kind basically anything that is way over the top and on the tacky side. Try to stay on the elegant side of things and keep your home looking fresh, with simple things like solid colored vases, 1 to 2 colored area rugs and simple non patterned throw pillows. Things like these are on the inexpensive side to purchase and easily can turn your dull, tacky home décor into something that looks chic and refined!

These examples are just a few that can give you a head start on changing things up in your home and make things look a little more modernized.
