We all know how easy it is to get carried away when furnishing and decorating a home. Even the essentials seem to cost an arm and leg, and that’s before all the extras you need to make your house comfortable and cosy. Even if you budget with good intentions, it’s can be very hard to stick to it.
Here are 6 savvy ways to save money on interior designs, make pain-free savings and add more cash to your savings pot.
Interior Design on A Budget: 5 Ways to Save Money
1. Try MyVoucherCodes Interactive Guide

2. Plan out your room design before you buy any furniture
By pre-planning and envisioning the space you have, you’ll avoid spending on unnecessary bits of furniture, or buying something that is too big or too small.
You can find design inspiration online and My VouchersCodes guide offers some great inspiration for different rooms, letting you pick between either a contemporary space or a traditional one, meaning there’s something for every style.
3. Be savvy with your discount code searches
It’s not only big brands that offer discount codes to help save money, but loads of other great companies do too. Search for discounts for flooring and tiling companies, as well as plumbing and bathroom designers and you could save money on things you had never thought of before.
4. Don’t get sucked in by the accessories too soon
It’s so easy to get your heart set on a particular colour fluffy cushion or a beautiful soft throw, but it’s worth waiting a while before you buy, particularly if you’re furnishing from scratch.
More often than not, you go off the things you buy on impulse and it’s better to wait until you’ve lived in the space for a couple of weeks, so you don’t waste your money on unwanted items.
5. Stick to what you know you like
Trends come and go – but that neon orange sofa is there forever. Remember that it’s expensive to redecorate or buy new furniture so it’s better to stick to colours, patterns and shapes that you know you like. You might think it’s boring but it’s better to go off a cushion than an entire sofa when it comes to spending your money wisely.
6. Do your research
You may have seen the perfect futon – but chances are you’ll be able to find a cheaper one elsewhere. Don’t buy anything on impulse but make sure you get online and have a search for similar styles. There’s loads out there! And don’t forget to make use of those discount codes as well.
If you follow these easy steps, you’ll be able to stretch your budget further and won’t have to make sacrifices for the home of your dreams.
