With the changing of the seasons, it’s normal to want to change up your space. That being said, redecoration can be costly. Here are some of our tips to help you make the most of your space while still being money conscious.

Thrifting

There is nothing better than finding a bargain, and why not be sustainable while doing it! Thrifting is a great way to find quality pieces without breaking the bank. You’re also given the opportunity to find unique, one of a kind pieces.

Thrifting, however, is not for the faint of heart and can oftentimes be overwhelming. That being said, here are some tips to help you make the most of the experience:

1- Look through everything!

Thrift stores are hard to keep organized, especially if they’re a larger chain. That means you’re likely to find hidden gems in the strangest places.

There have been a number of high-quality, unique pieces that are just waiting to be found and placed in the right home.

2- Don’t be afraid of weird materials

Your next set of curtains can be trendy and financially conscious! The blanket/bedding section in thrift stores is a great place to look for copious amounts of fun materials.

Not only do these excessive amounts of fabric make for good curtains, but they can also be converted into a variety of stylish pieces. For example: table cloths, and throws for the back of your couch.

Sales

Everyone loves a good sale, and there are endless possibilities when it comes to buying furniture. Much like thrift stores, it pays to be patient when it comes to finding the perfect furniture sale.

Places like Ikea and the BRICK are known for having great deals, but everyone knows about them which can make the shopping experience hectic and overwhelming. There’s nothing worse than going home empty handed because you weren’t able to get close to the item you wanted to buy.

Try your hand at some smaller, more obscure sales to find the perfect piece of furniture for your home. Be sure to check out our sale section to see what deals you can find to revamp your home.

Warehouse sales

Warehouse sales are perfect. You can usually find already assembled items at a super discounted price. That being said you are usually expected to accommodate transportation for the item, but with help from your friends that’s not an issue! (Maybe they’ll find something they like too.)

Many retailers are already ordering for the next season, which means they’re sure to have a warehouse with old stock. This allows you to scoop up that piece you’ve had your eye on without breaking the bank.

J&M Home will be doing monthly warehouse sales throughout the summer, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be the first one to know when they’ll be!

Estate sales

Although this is a riskier option when it comes to buying, estate sales are one big treasure hunt; you never know what you’re going to find! This gives you a chance to find luxury items at a lower cost - they’re usually more unique pieces as well.

Move stuff around

The cheapest option to revamping your style would be to simply work with what you’ve got. Sometimes all it takes is moving the couch to the other side of the room to feel like you’ve completely upgraded your space.

You can also swap out decor from other rooms to make it feel like there’s an element of ‘new’ in your home. The mind is easy to trick, so make the most of what you already have!

Accessories

Smaller items tend to be on the less expensive side. That’s why cushions and accessories are the perfect way to add a playful and contemporary element to your home without having to buy all new furniture. This allows you to change up the way your home looks while still being able to be financially conscious.

Lighting is essential to creating the perfect space!

More often than not, a combination of the three forms of lighting can be forgotten in the overall design of a space. These types of lighting include: general, task and accents. General lighting is the most used form to provide even, overall light to a room. However, without the mix of task and accent lighting, a space can lack ambience and affect the experience of the user.

At J&M Home we believe that the right lighting makes all the difference. Including task and accent lighting can exponentially improve how you feel and subsequently interact in your space. With our new range of lighting, we allow you to add dimension and fun layers, while improving your experience and developing your space into a unique representation of you and your style.

Our contemporary range of diverse pieces allow you to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. We aspire to add visual interest with our lamps, by creating new and exciting focal points in your room. This collection of lighting will brighten and highlight your contemporary décor while creating a harmonious ambience in the space.

Whether it’s at home, or a corporate setting, we know how important the right lighting is to make the most of your space.
