5 Steps for Finding Your Decorating Style

5 Steps for Finding Your Decorating Style

Do you struggle with choosing the furniture or art for your home because you don't quite understand your style? Do you envy your friends who seem to have so much to decorate their home in a style that perfectly suits them?

5 Steps for Finding Your Decorating Style

Today, I'll be sharing with you five easy steps to accurately assess your decorative style as well as four methods to do it on a budget.

1. Browse magazines

There are so many pretty images on Pinterest, it's sometimes difficult to decide on a particularly beautiful picture to focus on. Instead of browsing Pinterest randomly, it's better to look through magazine pages one by one and select one of the images that captures your eye. There is no right or wrong just rip up what you enjoy! Look into what you've torn up and discover what the pictures have in common.

2. Take an online quiz

Browse a variety of decorating design quizzes on the internet to aid you in discovering your design style. Pick a couple design quizzes to take at your leisure. If they come up with similar outcomes, then you are definitely on the right track. They're enjoyable, and they really assist you in defining your style.

3. Look to your wardrobe

Really dig into your favorite items of clothing. Look carefully at the colors and textures of these clothes. Do the colors tend to be neutral? If you do, consider a monochromatic color scheme when decorating your home. Do you like the clothes that have a lot of color and bold patterns? If so, take a similar approach when choosing textiles for your home.

4. Pay attention to the exterior of homes

When you drive around town, which houses leave your heart beating fast? Are they typically brick houses, or do they feature more modern and spacious layouts? If contemporary homes attract you, you may thoroughly enjoy the clean lines and minimalistic style of modern home design. If traditional homes are more your style, you may appreciate the classic design of sofas with rolled arms.

5. Take an inventory of your current decor

Make sure to take an inventory of all items in your house that you love, including those you would like to have replaced. Then, see which of your things share certain attributes, and write down those. Be sure to carry this list with you whenever you go shopping for your home. It will help you remain faithful to your design!

Once you know what you like to do, you have to find a way to do that on a budget. The 4 bonuses presented below can help you achieve exactly that! 


Paint is inexpensive and versatile; you can paint almost anything. I have painted the surfaces of various rooms (such as cabinets, walls, and floors), furniture, and my bedroom backsplash!

Do it yourself

A do-it-yourself room remodel is one of the best ways to spend less on remodeling a room. Paint the walls by yourself. Make your own curtains and bedroom furniture. Refinish or repaint the furniture yourself. Do not be afraid to take on a challenge! Many diy projects can be undertaken by anyone, no matter how inexperienced.

Shop Flea Markets, consigment stores, yard sales & craigslist

New furniture is not necessarily the only reasonably priced option for many people. You can always count on finding affordable furniture at flea markets, consignment shops, Craigslist, and yard sales, as well as searching for good deals on fine art and light fixtures. Bargain hunting can be fun, and there are often better purchases to be made than mass-produced goods.

Go shopping in your own house

Take my tip as my favorite to buy supplies to spruce up your laundry room. I cost only $71 since I used overlooked curtain remnants, wall paint and other objects out of storage. You'd never guess it! Accepted curtains and furniture not deemed appropriate for your new house, yet, may be perfect for another room. Find your attic, closet, or basement and devise unconventional ways to use outdated furnishings.
