IF YOU’RE RENOVATING WITHIN A TIGHT BUDGET, THERE’S A STACK OF LOW-COST LITTLE THINGS YOU CAN DO THAT WILL MAKE YOUR HOME LOOK PRETTY WITHOUT DRAINING YOUR PIGGY. FOR EXAMPLE…
MAKE THE FIRST IMPRESSION COUNT
The entrance is an often-neglected part of the home. Since Singaporean home usually have small entrance halls, it doesn’t take a lot of money or effort to create a favourable first impression.
A laser-cut unit number and a deep blue door create a strong statement even before the visitor sets foot inside this house. It says – modern, bold and individual!
GREEN A ROOM
This sun-loving plant pops against a neutral interior and contrasts brilliantly with the bold yellow sofa. The natural materials of the basket-weave ‘pot’ lend the space a resort feel and invite long lazy afternoons curled up with a good book, warmed by filtered sunlight… Bliss!
LET’S STICK TOGETHER
Wall stickers and decals are an easy way to theme a room for next to nothing. There’s a huge range online and at your local hardware store, so get picking and start sticking.
This decal of a stylised world map creates the perfect centrepiece for this eclectic living space, which is a little bit ‘resort’, a little bit New York loft’ and a little bit Scandinavian.Looking for Interior Designers?Let HomeRenoGuru help!
THROW AND TOSS
A few cushions and a floor rug or throw are all you need to make a statement, which can provide visual cues that recur throughout the connected spaces. And when you feel like a change, you’ll get change from a few hundred dollars!
Black and white is the common thread that connects this artfully mismatched medley of cushions and eye-catching textured rug. The monochromatic palette and linerar lines of the cushions are echoed in the track lighting and venetian blinds, creating a contemporary urban vibe for a modest outlay.
Home is where the heart and the art are. But it doesn’t need to be expensive. Prints are just as effective and often more-eye-catching than original artwork, and can be switched up at a low cost. A bunch of relatively low-cost posters, framed, can create an instant ambience – from ‘country garden’ to ‘man cave’, depending on the subject-matter.
This homeowner’s clearly a comic fan. The living space is dominated by a series of superhero posters in uniform black off-the-shelf frames. It’s fun, inexpensive and striking to fill your home with your hobby.
A mirror is every designer’s go-to way to optically enlarge a space. Mirrors reflect a wide range of styles and historical periods, from Victorian to art deco to mid-century modern.
This massive gilt-framed mirror adds grandeur and the illusion of extra space to this compact open concept dining area. Big mirror, small room – it breaks all the rules, but it works!
