5 Transformative Interior Design Tips for Dallas Homeowners on a Budget

If you’ve been scrolling through your Instagram feed in hopes of finding affordable interior design tips, we’re right there with you. 

In fact, we’re pretty sure the large majority of Dallas is on the same page! While Dallas residents can’t get enough of interior inspiration, it’s the lack of affordability that ruffles their feathers. 

We’ve rounded up five transformative interior design tips to help you spruce up your space without breaking the bank. 

Let’s dive in!

1. Cleverly Arrange Shelves to Create Dirt Cheap Artwork 

Shelves are easily one of the most versatile interior design elements. While they instantly imbue a space with functionality, they also take aesthetic appeal up several notches. 

If you’ve been struggling to find an “affordable interior design tip” that’s actually affordable and not just an attention grabber, this one’s for you. 

Invest in inexpensive box shelves; it doesn’t matter if the color isn’t right. In fact, it’s also not important for each shelf to be the same size. Mix it up to ensure the final result doesn’t look too structured and predictable. 

If the color doesn’t appear compelling, buy a can of chestnut or walnut brown spray paint (it won’t cost more than a few bucks) and evenly spray the shelves. 

Once you’re done, cleverly arrange the shelves and secure them in place. 

Place potted plants and accessories inside/on top of the shelves to do the makeover justice. Hang a couple of cheap LED lights and take a step back to marvel at your nifty DIY artwork!  

2. Don’t Shy Away From Personalizing Your Space As You Deem Best!

Personalizing your space isn’t nearly as high-cost as its cut out to be. 

Creating pieces yourself and putting together inexpensive items is a great way to revitalize your space without breaking the bank. 

Create a folder of your favorite artwork and print it out in matte, semi-gloss, or gloss finish depending on your preference. Buy inexpensive picture frames and carefully slide the artwork inside. Add finishing touches if required and hang the DIY frames in your living room, bedroom, or home office. 

We also suggest indulging in affordable accessories and collectibles from local online stores, thrift stores, and antique/vintage stores. 

Arrange, rearrange, and re-rearrange your bargains until you find the sweet spot! 

From tweaking upholstery to making structural changes, subtle design adjustments will make all the difference in boosting interior aesthetic appeal!

3. Re-Glam Your Space By Opting for Cheap Yet Stunning Lighting Fixtures

Installing the right lighting fixtures is almost like a rite of passage for Dallas residents. 

And while you may think indulging in visually dynamic lighting fixtures can cost you a pretty penny, the reality is far from it. 

You can easily find affordable yet stunning fixtures that make your space appear renewed! 

Opt for sleek black finishing to add depth and dimension to your space. We also recommend installing affordable steel French doors to boost interior functionality, accessibility, and sophistication.

No, this isn’t a restaurant. 

We got you there for a second, didn’t we? 

Using a customized sign is a great way to add a touch of restaurant-worthy professionalism to your kitchen. The affordable sign will make your kitchen appear twice as sophisticated and eye-catching. 

Of course, don’t forget to leave lighting fixtures and affordable iron doors out of the mix!

Leveraging these essentials will make your sign look even more fascinating and riveting. 

5. Yes, Bright Colors Make That Much of a Difference; Leverage Them!

We’re sure you’ve heard about the importance of incorporating vibrant colors into interior spaces before. However, if you think the strategy has become run-down over the years, you may want to think again. 

Despite its frequent citation almost everywhere, imbuing interior spaces with bright colors is just as effective today as it was years ago. 

If you’ve been sidelining this trick, it’s time to come around and give it another go! 

Add fresh bursts of azure blue, sunflower yellow, emerald green, pastel pink, and mauve to your interior space. The trick works best when the rest of your interior palette is kept neutral. 

The striking contrast will satiate the eye and create an ebullient interior ambiance that makes you fall in love with your space all over again!
