Candace Corlett, president of WSL Strategic Retail recently said, "There’s no excuse for an undecorated home on any budget." That’s because in today’s society, there is an endless array of resources for homeowners to turn to when they want to spruce up their interiors.
Wal-mart’s options are expanding
For instance, Wal-mart’s Better Homes & Gardens brand expanded its selection this year. Consumers now have even more inexpensive window treatments, rugs, decorative pillows, accessories, and patio furniture to choose from when they surf the aisles of the world’s largest retailer. For instance, decorative pillows can be found at the low price of $11.97.
Envision your dream home
Before you do any purchasing, however, it’s a good idea to know what you want your "finished product" of a home to look like. Visit decorating blogs, flip through magazines, walk through Home Depot, or take a tour of a friend’s home. Then decide which rooms you’ll be spending the most time in. Spend a little more on those rooms to be sure you’ll be comfortable with being around the décor 24/7.
Pallavi Naidu, vice president of merchandising and product development at Ballard Designs explained, "It’s like investing in good shoes or a handbag. . . . Spending more on items that get lots of use means they will last longer and give you more satisfaction."
Then, if all else fails, you can always repaint. After all, as Corlett said, "Painting is one of the affordable ways to change the décor."
