How To Design Your HDB
With Limited Budget?

You are on a limited budget because you have to limit the number of items you select. But it is possible to create a comfortable and interesting space without spending a lot of money. Get decorating ideas from magazines, television shows and home interior businesses. You need to come up with a plan for every room in your home. With a small budget, you can focus on designing one room at a time. Identify the room that needs to be worked on first before you begin.

Here are a few tips that can be helpful.

Use Color

One of the best ways to design your HDB with a limited budget is to use color. Painting is one the easiest and fastest ways to change a house. You can experiment with textured paint or use stripes in certain rooms. You can use color to make a statement by painting a bright and bold color on one of the walls. A two-tone scheme also works very well and it makes a room look glamorous.

Exploit Lighting

Another effective budget friendly design option is to use lighting to transform the house. With the right kind of lighting, you can change the entire mood in your house for very little. You can purchase a shade for an existing lamp or get matching table lamps. Place the lamps on each side of your bed or sofa to give the room an entirely different look.

Find attractive and dramatic lighting fixtures in discount stores in your area. You can also take advantage of sales to get quality fixtures at reasonable prices. A bold lighting fixture can have a significant impact in a room.

Display Photos

You can decorate your house by framing some of your family photos and displaying them in different rooms. The photos will also make your house feel more personal.

Get Used Items

When you are on a budget, you need to explore used items. Get used furniture, paintings, and lamps. Some of the items only need some fresh paint to make them look as good as new. Try to find plain tables and chairs and paint them in a color that matches the specific room that you want to place them in. Visit several stores that offer used items to get a good bargain. Some of the stores may have classic items that would cost a lot of money if they were new. Most people overlook used items but it is possible to find something unique that will fit well in your house.

Decorate with Fabric

Take advantage of fabric when looking for unique design options. You can make your own curtains and put them up in the different rooms in your HDB. New curtains can do a lot to change a room. If you have throw pillows, use decorative fabric to add some color to them. Use fabric that matches well with your couch. If you have purchased a used sofa or lamp, you can transform it by covering it up with fabric that matches your existing décor.

Find Multi-Purpose Items

When you have limited money to spend on your home design, you need to find items that can serve more than one purpose. You can purchase a coffee table that also offers storage for your games and magazines.

Install a Mirror

Installing a mirror can also help to create a dramatic look in your HDB. Most people choose conventional items such as flower vases to decorate but a mirror will have a greater impact. If your HDB is small, you use mirrors to give an illusion of a bigger space.

Add Candles

Candles are a great way to create a focal point in your HDB. Place them strategically in places that you want to draw people’s attention towards. This is an inexpensive way to make your home look elegant and inviting.

A HDB offer low cost housing and the last thing you want is to spend a lot of money designing the house. Making a few simple changes can have a dramatic impact on the overall design. All you have to do is select items that stand out. The idea is to give your house a personal touch.
