<ol><li> 1. Improve Your Design With These Interior decoration Tips Whether you have just bought a new home, or you have been living in your home for years, you can probably benefit from some design pointers.

Choose one and see how different your room looks! Set a budget for your interior-design project before you start any work. Costs for home-improvement projects can quickly spiral out of control if you don't set a spending limit. While you can be a little flexible, you shouldn't spend more than you can afford. Having a budget can help you be more creative as well. Try to develop a theme on each and every floor of the house. After you develop this theme, try to match the colors and furniture to the type of theme that you choose.

This will make a dull room modern. These elements should just be used as accents. If your zebra print throw pillows go out of style, you can easily swap them out for something new.

This simple trick will give a store-bought shelf some pizzazz without breaking the budget. Use vinyl adhesive stickers to decorate a child's room. Because you may not want to redo your child's room each time they go through a phase (trains? dinosaurs? super heroes?), vinyl stickers are a great solution. Available in practically every design from words to numbers to athletes and more, they allow you to stick them semi-permanently to any wall, but easily remove them when your child finds a new passion. </li><li> 2.
