Boho on a Budget, 5 Great Tips
Establishing a distinct style in your home may seem like it requires a huge personal investment; and from furniture to wall decor to a beautiful area rug, it can definitely add up.
However, certain styles lend themselves to a slew of interpretations, accommodating your budget no matter its size. Today, we want to let you in on our 5 best tips to shopping affordably for one of our absolute favorite looks: Bohemian.
What exactly is Boho?
Do you tend to lean towards vibrant colors and funky, mixed patterns when decorating your living space? What about the kind of vibe it gives off? Is there something relaxed and carefree about it, even with its eclectic style? If so, it fits the description of Boho.
Bohemian style characterizes anything from clothing to home decor; and while it’s usually an aesthetic that combines objects, colors, and patterns from around the world, there is no strict definition of its look. Boho thrives on the unconventional, as it often takes inspiration from the lives of travelers and artists. What’s so interesting about this style is that there are so many ways to embody it without replication.
When looking at your place through a Boho lens, a stunning area rug is a staple. And because there are no strict rules to this style, there’s no need to break the bank to get the look of your interior design dreams.
So, what are you waiting for? Read on for our 5 best tips to getting the perfect Bohemian look on a budget!
Go in with a plan
We know, we know. This is probably the least fun aspect of decorating on a budget. However, keeping a specific price range and wishlist in mind before winding up in front of the most tempting (and expensive) options can save you from going over budget.
After all, Boho is whatever you make it. While an eye-grabbing area rug will surely get a lot of attention, this specific style is defined by creative combination and collection of unique items. Luckily, our wide array of affordable Bohemian rugs can allow you to put away some of those precious home decor funds for other interesting pieces.
Sometimes easier said than done, eh? But as a cardinal rule of home decor, don’t be afraid to invest a little more–whether investing time weighing your options or investing money in return for better materials and build.
This, however, doesn’t necessarily mean you should head for the most expensive options out there. Many brands, including Rugs2Go, provide an excellent middle ground of affordable and high-quality pieces that are built to last.
Stick to Boho’s distinct qualities
Let’s say you fall in love with a rug well out of your price range. No need to fret or go over budget. Identify what qualities of the rug you like and peruse more affordable collections that fit similar descriptions.
Though seemingly one-of-a-kind, Bohemian pieces commonly use warm, earthy colors and accessorize with metallics (e.g. silvers and golds) and jewel tones (e.g. amethyst purple, ruby red, and emerald green). Remember, this style is loud. Keep your eyes peeled for pieces with bold designs, elaborate textures, and even handmade items.
Use these color structures and a mix of rich patterns to fulfill your Bohemian dreams within any price range. Oh, and when in doubt, mix, layer, and combine every one of these so-called rules.
Embrace the Bohemian life
Choose a piece that accommodates you and your space. Take comfort in the fact that the Boho look doesn’t require you to fork out a ton of cash nor abide by any unwavering stylistic rules. It’s best to look for rugs that ultimately enhance the character of your living space and add a touch of personal flair to an already unique style.
