So you just bought a house? Or you’ve just started to rent? You probably don’t have a big budget for making your home your own. That’s where budget interiors come in, you don’t have to spend a fortune to bring some personality into your home. I’ve learnt from experience that shopping around can save you a lot of money in the long run. The hunt for the perfect pieces may take you an all day shopping trip or a trawl of the internet, but I’ve picked out 5 key pieces from the best budget interior places.
First we have the bargain hunters dream, eBay. When I eventually get my office space finished I’ll be using one of the chalk board wall calendars too organize my blogging schedule. Whenever I see something on Pinterest that I’d like to pick up for my house, eBay is my first port of call. It easily allows you to compare prices too, every cheap skates favourite pass time.
Next up I picked out this bowl from Tesco – I loved the wood and paint effect. It looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. Supermarkets are a great place to pick up lots of different pieces for your home. From towels to picture frames they usually have something to suit all tastes.
Another favourite of mine is Dunelm Mill – they offer great prices and also some of your more higher brands. I’ve picked up quite a few things for my house from here, including these copper lamp shades. I will be having quite a neutral landing so I wanted something that would bring a pop of colour. I’ve also picked out the copper with a vase which has taken pride of place at the window.
H&M offers some really affordable unique pieces which are super affordable. I loved this postcard style pillowcase – our bedroom colour scheme will be grey and white, so I thought this would fit in nicely.
I was on the hunt for the perfect curtains for my living room but because of the size of the window I knew I’d have to get them made. Luckily my boyfriend’s mum has come to the recuse and said she would make them for us. If you have someone that can do this for you it will save you so much money! All I needed to do now was find the perfect fabric, it had taken my quite a while but eventually I decided to head down to Bombay Stores. They sell a big selection of fabrics as many people make their Saris etc from rolls of fabric. I found the perfect red and gold paisley print and at a really reasonable price, the staff are extremely helpful too!
