Updating Your Home on a Budget

Establish a Home Remodel Budget

Homeowners often put off home updates because they feel they won’t be able to stick to their budgets. At Altra Home Décor serving the greater Phoenix area, we’ve got a few tips in mind to help you stay on track. We’re happy to share them!

Where To Start With Home Makeover

Whether you have a small single room to update or you want to makeover your entire home, staying within a budget can be a challenge. Start by making a list of everything you want to accomplish. Then look at your finances. How much money do you realistically have to spend? If you have set aside some “mad money” or have a savings designated for home improvement, you’re all set. If not, determine how much money you are comfortable spending on your space. Setting up a reasonable budget will allow you to enjoy the decorating process. Now that you know how much you can spend, review your list to determine which changes you can reasonably make.

Cutting Corners

Custom Bedding & Pillows & Slipcovers

Remember that even a small change can have a big impact. For example, if you’re looking to add color to your room, you may not need to purchase a new couch—instead, consider saving money by adding a slipcover. Or go with unique decorative throw pillows. These small changes can make a big impact and help freshen your room without breaking your budget.

Adding Value to Your Home

Visit our Window Treatment Showroom

Invest your money on the things you first notice when you walk into the room, like window treatments. With Hunter Douglas window treatments, you have a number of options to transform your room. For example, if your dream design includes elegance, European flair, or cozy country comfort, consider plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas. They offer three product lines, including Heritance® hardwood shutters, NewStyle® hybrid shutters, and Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ shutters. Or, for soft window treatments with a modern flair, check out Silhouette® Window Shadings, Pirouette® Window Shadings, or Nantucket™ Window Shadings. These beautiful, sheer horizontal shades provide a modern look by combining the functionality of a blind with the beauty of a fabric shade.
