Doing some redecorating on a budget? We've put together a list of tricks from expert designers to help you. Put them to use in your home to create an affordable, chic and updated atmosphere.
1) Hang mirrors in dark hallways to reflect light and open up the space, says Bunny Williams, author of Scrapbook for Living.
2) Purchase throw pillows instead of spending money on new sofas and chairs. Interior designer Vanessa DeLeon says they add new colors and patterns to refresh a room.
3) Drape a patterned scarf over your headboard to change the color palette and look of your bedroom easily and affordably, advises interior designer and blog author Kristen Grove.
4) Use a bright color to paint the shelves of a neutral bookcase.
