If you’re looking to add a touch of class to your home furnishings but are worried about the expense, know that there are several ways you can create an elegant interior design without having to spend a fortune.

If you have limited funds for home improvement, there are many simple ways you can begin making savings through activities such as cutting down on your electricity bill by switching to energy-saving light bulbs and unplugging unused electronics. Cooking at home rather than ordering takeout is another great way to save some money. Another way to finance your project is through a quick loan online on the same day.

By creating a budget, you will soon have enough money saved to start beautifying your home, and this article will show you some simple ways to get started.


Lighting can make a world of difference to the character and atmosphere of a room, transforming the entire mood at the flick of a switch. Incorporate task, ambient and accent lighting to give your living room some added glamor and gravitas. An ornate set of wall sconces or a decorative table lamp can add a snug and inviting feel to any room by emitting a soft luminescence that will add charm to your evenings.

Overhead or wall-mounted lights can bring a warm, spa-like feel to your bathroom while counter and cabinet lighting can gently illuminate your kitchen setting an intimate mood for dinner parties. Vintage and antique furniture stores are great places to find unique and extravagant light fixtures at low prices.


The power of smell should not be underestimated. Different scents and fragrances can instantly conjure memories and transport you to another time.

Take advantage of the evocative power of scent in your home by lighting incense, essential oils or scented candles. With the gentle aromas of vanilla, jasmine, cedarwood or cinnamon wafting through your hallways you can create a calm and relaxing feel to your home which is also inviting for guests.

Fragrances can be used to induce a sense of luxuriousness to your interiors with very little expense, making them one of the best ways to beautify your home.

Statement Piece

Select an item that stands out from the rest to be a focal point when guests enter the room. This could be anything from a piece of furniture such as a chaise lounge or a uniquely designed coffee table, to a striking piece of artwork or sculpture. An oversized mirror hung from a bare wall can also make a dramatic statement as can any other bold type of wall décor.

Other ideas include an eclectically patterned rug or an artistically-designed lampshade or light fitting taking center stage in your room. Whatever you decide as the star of the show remember to choose something that resonates with you and the more unexpected, whimsical and distinctive, the better.

By playing around with these three tips you will soon be on your way to transforming your home into a chic, opulent and elegant interior at a fraction of the cost.
