YOU don’t have to spend a fortune to make your home look classy and chic.
A TikTok video confirms you can transform your home to look expensive without paying any designer price tag.
Interior design expert Dani posted her four tips for making your home look expensive, and they don’t cost much at all.
She says it’s all about style and sophistication, both of which can be achieved through discount shopping and basic cleaning.
Dani’s idea of expensive begins with the infusion of natural stones into the house decor.
“Natural stones, like marble and quartz, scream high-end,” she says.
But this doesn’t mean you have to remodel the kitchen countertops or bathroom sinks with it.
“The key is to incorporate smaller marble or stone pieces into your design; almost any item with an organic or natural feel is going to look sophisticated,” Dani explains.
If you can’t afford to buy any actual stone, one viewer had a suggestion.
“Also they sell marble contact paper at Walmart! If you can’t afford new furniture, it’s a great way to upgrade existing furniture,” he said.
One free tip to upgrade your space is simple – clear up all your clutter.
This may be hard if you have a lot of roommates or a family, but it gives the space an obvious enhancement.
Dani says: “Clutter can ruin the look of any room.”
Even if you spend a lot of money on decor and furniture, your house will still look messy if there are random things everywhere.
Maximizing the space is key, and Dani suggests filling that space with high-quality materials and fabrics.
“An affordable way to do this is to incorporate beautiful fabrics like linens and weaves in your throw pillows and even your bed,” she says.
Finally, incorporating and tending to wildflowers and plants in your home is Dani’s idea of sophistication.
She says: “Don’t be afraid to forage a little bit for wild greenery and flowers. I love to put these in vases and sprinkle them around my house.”
Designing on a budget is frustrating, which made Dani’s viewers thankful for her tips.
“Wow. I really need this. Thank you,” one viewer commented, while another said: “Wow, thanks for sharing ur wonderful home decor ideas.”
