Everyone wants their space to look chic, presentable, and modern. But most people believe they have to break the bank to achieve this simple goal. You don’t have to install fixtures that cost thousands of dollars or buy the most expensive home accessories before you can get that chic and modern look that you crave for your kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom, and every other part of your home.

Here are simple tips to make your space look chic and modern using affordable, easily sourced materials that would give your home the classy finish you desire.

Maximize on Lightning

One of the qualities of a chic and modern home is adequate and strategically positioned lighting. As such, you must take advantage of both natural and artificial lighting for every space in your home. Ensure your windows always look clean and beautiful, so you are always ready to throw back the curtains and bath your home with the natural lighting it needs. You should also take advantage of beautifully crafted floor and table lamps as well as recessed lighting.

What’s more? You can do this while on a budget. You can get affordable light fixtures from antique shops and thrift shops and be one step closer to having your dream modern and classy space.

Think Shiny and Classy Mirrors

You can never underestimate the instant facelift that a shiny, gilt-edged mirror will give your bathroom, living room, and bedroom. Not only are mirrors fashionable, but they are also practical, especially when strategically positioned to reflect the best part of a room. Another wonderful thing about mirrors is that they are cheap. You can get one for a few bucks and instantly beautify your home.

Use Neutral Colors

You can never go wrong with soft neutral tones for your walls, furniture, and other fixtures. Give your home a million-dollar look with a simple coat of neutral colors such as beige, taupe, gray, or one or two of the numerous shades of white. These colors are calming, relaxing and blend well with other colors. You can also use more colorful and soft tones such as blue, lilac, green, or pink.


If there is something you must have in your home, it is well-matched, simple, yet classy accessories that help bring the whole room together. Elegant throw pillows, soft and clean rugs, picture frames with gold edges, and colorful artwork are some of the must-have accessories in every home.

The best thing about accessories is that they do not cost much. You probably have something nice that is just wasting away in your attic. With an extra coat of paint, you can turn those abandoned picture frames into an important part of your home décor.

Just ensure that everything fits well together, and you do not clutter your space.

Go Green

Plants and flowers will help keep the air fresh and healthy while doing wonders to your home’s appearance. You should also choose simple and classy vases and place your plants in strategic points where they can easily be seen. What’s more, you can grow them yourself at almost no cost.
