Some of us take real delight in reorganising or revamping our homes. There's something exciting about the infinite decor possibilities at your disposal that almost makes us wish this were a more frequent endeavor. But there is a common hindrance for a lot of people when it comes to decorating, and that's the budget.
Good thing for us is that you don't need a Victorian style home with huge ornate chandeliers and furnishings in order to have a stylish interior. There are many design schemes that require little to no money to pull off, and we thought we would highlight those for you. That's why we put together this list of 10 chic interiors for anyone on a budget to copy.

Simple things like new throw pillows are a sure-fire way to add new character and chic personality to your home. As we can see here, just a few simple pillows on the couch are enough to transform this monochrome neutral area into a room with excitement.
First up on the list of super-saver interiors is the minimalist style. This approach is easy and inexpensive due to the design scheme's principles, which is
less is more. With that attitude, you don't have to worry about buying accessory after accessory to adorn your space.
Transforming your home into a tropical paradise is a lot cheaper than most realise. Just what makes a tropical interior? Well, plenty of sunlight, colour, and vegetation will do the trick. Plants of all varieties come rather inexpensively at local hardware stores, and when it comes to textiles, colourful throws, rugs, and pillows are never much more than the cost of a week's worth of groceries.
If you have exposed brick in your home, you might want to consider airing on the side of the industrial design scheme. This scheme, along with rustic, takes the natural and textured look of brick and uses it to its advantage as a styling element, so you can forget about the cost of covering it up in favour of a different style.
When going for the ultra-chic home vibe, you can't go wrong with neutrals. Use an array of different beiges in your furniture and pick contrasting tones like white or black for the accessories. We're not exactly sure why, but beige sofas and chairs in furniture stores tend to be much cheaper than the black or colourful options, so next time you go to IKEA, keep an eye out for those prices.
Ever thought about putting your old suitcases to good use? Well, when redecorating on a budget, it's very much encouraged. Save money on expensive coffee and side tables by repurposing and stacking your unused suitcases next to the sofa and voila! You've just added vintage and eclectic charm to your living room without spending a penny!
When it comes to areas like the kitchen or the bathroom, nothing is cheaper than tile. Here we see subway tiles used as backsplash in the kitchen–an affordable alternative to something like quartz.
Raw and unfinished items like tables and chairs bring a natural vibe to your home and are much cheaper than those with thick or colourful finishes, so why not air on the side of naturalism?
Low-lying furnishings are optimal for smaller homes as well as smaller pockets. With less material used in construction, this type of furniture tends to be more affordable and creates a wonderful aesthetic too.
Last up could be something quite obvious to most of you. This look, or any comparable look, is easily achieved through the power of paint, and we all know just how cheap and versatile paint is. Pick one or more bold colours and give your home some personality with accent walls.
