Budgeting for Fall Projects

Decide what you Want to Spend

One of the biggest parts of decorating or re-decorating a space is budgeting. When you decide you would like to give a space in your home a refresh, it is important to sit down and decide what you are looking to spend before you start any sort of planning or shopping.

If your space needs a full re-do but your budget wont allow for that all at once, pick what is MOST important to update in the space. It can be frustrating when you know the space needs more than you can do all at once, but you will be much happier with the result if you take your time and start with the most important updates first. 

Price Compare

Once you begin shopping, don't just go out and buy the first pieces you see and think will work. It can save you a lot in the long run if you shop around and price compare before diving into a large purchase. One easy way to go about this is to browse your favorite stores/sites for inspiration even if its on the pricier side. This way you can get ideas of what styles you like, then find similar pieces elsewhere if your budget does not allow you to splurge on those high end items. 

One Room at a Time

One problem we see is people trying to tackle too much at once. If you feel multiple spaces in your home could use sprucing up or even complete overhauls, stick to one room at a time. It can be tempting to spread the budget you have over multiple rooms so you can see small improvements throughout your home. If you pool the money you have and pour it into one space at a time it will make a MUCH bigger impact and you will be glad you did.
