While proper planning is essential for any home décor project, the need for it increases tenfold if you have a strict budget. After all, you don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you’ve seen the ideal couch, only to discover that you don’t have enough money in your account. Or that non-refundable corner table you ordered online doesn’t fit. Doing a bit of legwork beforehand will dramatically reduce the likelihood of an unexpected surprise along the way.
First, you need to find some inspiration. Look on the internet and magazines to decide what home décor style you’d like to emulate. Then divide your project into components – accessories, paint, furniture and flooring. Browse different stores to get a good idea how much each component will cost. Make sure you take into account other expenses, such as hiring contractors or handymen.
When you have a price point in mind, look at your finances and be honest about how much is available to spend on home décor. If the amount falls short of your price point, put aside a manageable amount every week until you reach your goal. It might take longer than buying with a credit card, but you’ll be thankful later on.
