You may be interested with bringing a little essence of Italian Tuscan countryside into the decor of your house but you lack the budget to make it come true. Tuscan decor has nature and food as its central themes and is therefore one of the easiest and most popular styles that you can replicate. If you add more creativity to the process, it can also be the cheapest. Therefore, you should not worry about lacking budget if you have really dreamed about the decor. It is possible to achieve them without spending a lot of money.
Tuscan decor turns nature, food, and wine into art. The theme is easiest to incorporate to the kitchen compared to the other rooms in a home. By using earthy, deep colors similar to the terra cotta, deep reds, browns, yellows, greens, and oranges you will instantly feel the touch of Tuscan design.
With further additions of elements of Tuscan style such as iron, copper, aged wood, stone, exposed wood beams, and tile, you will almost feel like you are in Tuscany just from the effects of the Tuscan decor. For the food and wine part, you can throw in wine bottles, olives, and grapes and all of the elements that will make you feel in Tuscany complete.
Full of texture is a characteristic of Tuscan decor, and this is especially true for the walls. Venetian plaster is a good choice if you want to give a textured look for your walls. However, it can become expensive if the room you are decorating is large. It will also be quite time consuming.
The simplest way to add a bit of texture to the walls for your Tuscan decor is by using regular latex paint with a texture additive. The additive can be bought in different intensities of texture, ranging from light texture to heavy texture. Through the mixing process, you can also control the amount of texture you have. The more additive you use in your mixture, the heavier will the texture be. The mixing process is easy. The additive is usually in a bag and it looks very similar to sand. All you have to do is pour the additive to the paint. Using a separate bucket for the mixing process instead of just pouring the additive to the can of your paint is suggested in order to keep your can of paint from getting ruined should you pour in an excess of additive by accident.
Start with only a little of the mixture and as you progress you may want to keep adding a little more until the effect you desire have been achieved. Paint your walls afterwards. A few pieces of wooden beams can be added after the painting process. If you want to incorporate wood but you are looking for something cheap, you can use scrap wood. The best area for the wooden beams is on the ceiling. If you are open to changing your flooring, go for hardwood floors as they are the natural option for Tuscan decor.
Laminate flooring that imitates the look of hardwood is the solution to small budgets. Tuscan decor does not require you to spend a lot of money. As long as you choose accessories and pieces of furniture well and they give the Tuscan look and feel that you desire, you are good to go. Old pieces of furniture can also be easily found cheap because they are secondhand and if you go exploring on garage sales you should be able to have great finds. Make use of your inner creativity as much as possible. With the right accents, colors, and accessories, you will feel like you are in your Tuscany only from your own decor.
