Spending Money Where It Matters - Designer Home on a Budget
Courtesy of Camden Property Trust
I love beautiful homes. I could spend hours watching every show on HGTV while eating snacks and dreaming of what I could do with a design show-sized budget. Realistically, DIY and smart shopping are the ways I'm going to make those dreams happen. After those snacks, of course.
So what makes a beautiful home? How do you even begin to move towards the designer dream you’ve been looking for? Especially when you’re on a budget? I’ve spent some time thinking about it, and a few things keep resonating with me.
Your designer home starts with good bones.
- Designer kitchens
- Modern light fixtures
- Stainless steel appliances
- Quartz countertops with tile backsplashes
- Wood-style flooring
Camden provides luxury apartment homes with the “good bones” I’ve always wanted. Plus, the perks of living at a luxury apartment community extend outside of just the home you live in. Many of their communities feature modern, clean designs full of energy-efficient light fixtures and appliances.
This sleek kitchen offers lots of great storage space and has the white quartz counters that are featured on lots of recent design shows and blogs. The lighting and hanging pendants are such great accents! Again, spending money on features is what matters in creating your designer home.
Let’s Talk About Furniture
Have you also wanted to upgrade your style to a more modern look without breaking the bank? I've found that CORT Furniture has furniture available in their clearance centers for AMAZING rates! You can even Furnish Your Luxury Home for Under $2000 with one of their Move-In Ready room packages, which include options for full bedroom, living room, and dining sets. With showrooms all over the US, you can find great deals just around the corner.
Keep it simple and spend money on good bones and great furniture deals and you'll have your designer home in no time. Celebrate with a quick trip to Homegoods for a few accent pieces and your vision will be complete! After all, we all deserve a home that looks polished and in style…or at least a home to eat snacks and binge-watch home shows in, right? Happy apartment living, friends!
