Affordable Elegance in Home Decor

Silhouette® Window Shadings

These days, saving money is high on many people’s lists. But don’t worry—if that’s one of your goals, you don’t have to let go of ideas of bringing elegance to your home. You can still give a room an upgrade that will make it seem elegant without breaking the bank. At Windo VanGo serving the greater Baltimore area, we’re happy to give you some tips on how to do just that. Read on to learn more!

Throw Pillows and Blankets Add Sophistication

Make your room inviting and elegant simply by adding poof. If you’ve got a couch or sectional, pillow it up. Go with a mix of different sizes and textures to add visual depth, and be sure to mix patterns and solids as well. Particularly soft throw blankets also spruce up a room—drape them over the guest bed or a side chair and encourage touching.

Faux Tile and Wood

Manufacturing improvements have made peel-and-stick tile and hardwood solutions look more realistic than ever. You can create a new backsplash in your kitchen or quickly change a small area of flooring without spending nearly what you would on the genuine products. Yet your room will look more up to date and elegant than ever. Plus, it’s a great way to add some color and interest to an area that might have otherwise been neglected.

Declutter Your Décor

When it comes to accent pieces, these days, less is more. Look through your décor pieces and determine which are the ones you really love and that will help your overall look. This will allow you space to highlight the best pieces and will allow you to appreciate them more. Store the leftovers for a future rotation, or even consider letting them go altogether.

Replace Old Fixtures

Add or replace cabinet and drawer handles in your kitchen or bathroom, and think about upgrading your doorknobs in a room. It’s a quick way to modernize an area and make it look expensive without spending more than you’d like.

Focus Your Spending

If you have some extra cash you’re willing to spend, laser-focus where it should go. A statement piece like a new couch or exquisite coffee table can elevate a room on its own. Similarly, new or enhanced window fashions can create a bold statement. Elegant options like floor-to-ceiling draperies will enhance a room, or choose distinguished coverings such as Silhouette® or Pirouette® window shadings to bring something new to the space. If you’re satisfied with the on-window treatment you already have, consider adding custom side panels.
