The internet offers great resources when it comes to home decorating ideas. Online retailers, sale sites, inspiration sites, and e-design sites have enhanced interior design by making it more accessible and affordable for you. Here’s how to make the most of it:

#1.Visiting Online Home Decor Sites

Nearly every furniture and home decor company has an extension of its business online from boutique showrooms like Viesso to popular chains like Crate & Barrel and West Elm. There are also stores such as Pieces that solely sell their products online whose lack of overhead costs often translates into customer savings.

With products and prices available a few clicks away, shopping becomes an experience that saves both time and money. From the comfort of your home, you can select contemporary, hip pieces from places like CB2 or peruse Layla Grace’s sophisticated and unique collection. Having the product description, color selection, and shipping options at your fingertips frees up time from visiting home shops and with frequent online sales, saves you money.

#2.Following Sale Sites Often

There is a growing trend of private sale sites that share limited time offers on home decor items at a significant discount. You can find sales on the world’s best brands for your home and life including furniture, housewares, décor accents, lifestyle accessories, giftables on free to join sites such as Gilt Home, One Kings Lane, and Joss & Main. Through daily events, these websites offer a variety of incentives like design trend reports and curated collections by notable influencers within the design community.

#3.Knowing your Style

Home decorating is hard when you don’t know your design style. Luckily, there are several great online home style finders that will help you limit trial-and-error purchases of pieces that do not fit your aesthetic and narrow down where to shop. Decorilla and Live Your Style have fun style finders that will help you when selecting you home decor pieces.

#4.Visualizing before committing

There are many virtual decor tools now that assist in planning home design. IKEA Home planner and Zatista, for example, can show you what a furniture piece or art piece will look like in your space before committing to it. Having a visualization like this is a huge benefit that will certainly save you time and money when making your final choices. The Voice of Color matches color to your personality, has a paint visualizer, and a mobile app that helps with accessory choices.

Taking this a step beyond is e design site, Decorilla, offering 3D visualizations from talented online decorators worldwide. The result of the e design process is a well planned room including a shopping list of the best home decor products at prices you’ll love. This way you are guaranteed saving valuable time from sourcing items yourself and save up to 80% off traditional interior design.
