If you are
updating your furniture this autumn and need to stick to a tight budget, there
are a few things to consider.
Gullifer, interior stylist at Focus on Furniture shares her top five tips for
achieving luxe looks for less when updating furniture in your home.
out how much you can afford
get started on updating furniture in your home, consider which rooms you would
like to update. Work out a rough budget for each room and write a list of
must-update and concentrate on those furniture pieces first. Work your way to
other rooms of the house as you can afford and your budget allows. If you
adjust your expectations in the beginning to fit your budget it will make it
easier to make purchasing decisions.
up a bit and bring a breath of fresh air to your interior decor. Recycle
unwanted pieces of furniture you no longer need and start to declutter. Book a
council collection if the pieces are totally worn and are unable to be re-used.
Add functional and affordable contemporary touches to your interior and keep it
light and spacious. Remember less is more.
on current trends
are current trends for autumn as the weather cools and winter approaches. But
be careful not to make your room look too dark and mix it up with light timbers
and a splash of colour. Smooth velvet's are still popular with rich deep blues adding
real luxury in furniture pieces like armchairs, sofas and beds. Grey and black hues
are popular in winter and work well with dining suites, bookcases, bar stools
and sofas. When sprucing up your living room, luxury looks such as the new Omari
armchair from Focus on Furniture can add that real wow factor. Add contrasting tones such as bold cushions
and lush green in-door plants to complete the luxe look.
on the best value for money
While it may
take up some of your valuable time, looking for the best value for your money
could save you hundreds of dollars. For example, Focus on Furniture has brand
new dining chairs available throughout autumn from as little as $59.
