Looking to transform a space without blowing your budget? Our team at Soleil Laurel Canyon has listened to the experts at HGTV to uncover the tricks-of-the-trade when it comes to decorating your home.
Here are some tips to help you enhance your space:
- Bedding – Look for one-day sales throughout the year at stores like Bloomingdales, Bed Bath & Beyond and Macy’s. You’ll find top-notch styles to fit your budget. Also check out www.companystore.com for awesome deals.
- Hardware – HGTV’s Vern Yip recommends www.doorknobdiscountcenter.com for high quality doorknobs at affordable prices. Another idea is to venture to a local flea market for some unique accents.
- Lamps –Already have an antique lamp? Modernize it by adding a simple white shade or spray painting the base. If you are looking to purchase a new lamp, visit Lamps Plus. You may get “turned on” to a great deal and they always comp the shipping.
- Refrigerators – Did you know that manufacturers bring out new refrigerators in June? This means the best time to shop is in May when the retailers slash prices on last year’s models.
- Towels – According to HGTV’s Danielle Colding, the towels in Macy’s Hotel Collection are luxurious and inexpensive when Macy’s is having a one-day sale. Other stylish, affordable options can be found at Target and JCPenney.
- Trees – The best time to buy and plant trees is from late August through December when the nurseries are clearing stock for the winter – you’ll be able to save 30 to 40 percent on plantings like white pines and privets.
