Paint
Painting is one of the most affordable ways to transform a space in your home. Paint can be used to change a solid color, apply a texture, or create intricate faux effects that mimic marble, wood, tile, mosaic or any other number of designs and textures. You can make a room appear larger, more intimate, expensive, or casual just with a gallon or two of paint. However if you are not an experienced painter and want to achieve a difficult look, you may need to enlist the talents of a painting professional. Take your time to research and view the portfolios of a number of painters before you choose the one that fits your style the best, as it will cost you a bit of money.
Furniture
The style, color and size of the furniture you choose can have a huge affect on the mood and design of any room in your home. If you cannot afford to make large design changes, try new furniture or changing the furniture you have to enhance any design and decor motif. New upholstery is a good way to keep your older furniture while giving it a new vibrant look.
Accessories
There's no end to the amount of accessories you can to add to a room. Art, lamps, flowers–you have a variety of options to choose from to make the room just right. Keep in mind that those accessories can vary widely in price though, so shopping the Internet and big-box stores is a good way to get an estimate before making final purchases.
Hiring a professional
If home design seems too overwhelming for you, there's always the option to hire a professional. Interior decorators and designers are pros, trained in this particular field to furnish a home just the way you want it. Consult with more than one and let them know exactly what you want. Make sure they understand your style and then choose the best one for your budget.
