5 Stylish, Affordable 4-Room Designs That Makes You Want To Re-Renovate Your Home

Having a stylish home is something that many of us desire. But often, what limits our imagination of a stylish home is the potential cost that comes with designing a stylish home. There is a misconception that a stylish home is also one that will cost you a bomb to renovate. The more stylish it is, the more it will cost you.

But here’s what you need to know: A home can be stylish and yet affordable. It is not a conundrum that cannot be achieved. All you need is to choose the right interior designer who will guide you on making your renovation an affordable yet stylish affair.

In this article, we highlight some of the interior design styles that have shown they have what it takes to be both stylish and affordable to inspire your next home renovation.

Minimalist design has long been popular, but its popularity has shot up in recent times. The clean, crisp, and clutter-free look is something that homeowners seek because having a de-cluttered home can make your home seem visually bigger than what the floor plan says.

For many, the wide, uncluttered home also creates a sense of visual calmness for those living in the space.

This design from Design 4 Space Pte Ltd creates the exact replica of a cosy, minimalist home that makes it hard to not fall in love with it.

The simple, minimalistic design is consistent throughout the home, from the living room to the kitchen and even in the bedroom.

We also love the emphasis of functionality on all the furniture in the home. There is no wastage or unnecessary furniture. Each piece of furniture is well thought and handpicked to accentuate the minimalist feel in the home.

The industrial style interior design is a popular design style that is well-liked for its special and unique feel. But the industrial style is not easy to pull off and requires an experienced interior designer to work their magic.

There’s also this lingering worry that hiring an experienced interior designer to give you the perfect industrial design look and feel will cost you a bomb. Luckily, that doesn’t have to be the case.

Most importantly, the interior designer pulled off the whole industrial design feel with a budget of just $23,000!
