If your paint is currently passable, you may want to strategize on which areas of your home get a new coat. We price by square foot so you may want to skip the larger rooms. For example, if you’ve got a gorgeous two story foyer, you can save a lot by prioritizing the other rooms around your home with less surface area.Select a color that coordinates with the color you’re leaving to create a fresh look without breaking the bank.

In another blog, we discussed some ideas to find your perfect color scheme. When you’ve got your palette set, consider a cost effective way to bring in your accent color. Thrifting offers many exciting and unique pieces. At the very least you should be able to find a variety of glass decor pieces in rainbow hues. Votive candles are also an easy, inexpensive go-to. Allow your space to stand out by avoiding the stuff from the big box stores that everyone features.
