10 Budget-Friendly Home Styles For Newlyweds
For most newly weds and first time homeowners, budget is the foremost concern when renovating. But fret not, a well-designed home need not drive cost through the roof. A little inspiration can go a long way and these 10 spiffy homes perfect for you just prove the point in case.
1. Go Scandinavian
Light and airy Scandinavian designs are extremely popular with young couples – yes, the hype just won’t die down! Here, the fun colour palette is grounded by a stark black feature wall (a good paint job is all you’ll need for that) and darker accents.

2. Play With Geometrics
A geometrical playground, this living room’s cute outfit is a visual delight that will cheer you right up. Inside the bedroom, a more subtle approach is taken, with a calming, somber grey tone for repose.
Interior Designer: Meter Square
Renovation Cost: $30,000
3. Minimalist Chic
Or perhaps opt for a more minimalist approach that utilizes low-slung furniture for the much beloved mod appeal. We’re loving the sofa’s distinctly mid-century curves that makes it oh-so-chic. P.S. Colour coordinating and pastels are also a thing.
Interior Designer: Mr Shopper Studio
Renovation Cost: $50,000
4. Bar Top Ideas
Here’s another trend to take in that won’t break the bank: bar tops for breakfast or late-night drinks. A staple in new homes, having another dining space comes in handy when entertaining – use one as a serving table, and the other for tucking into all the savoury food.

5. Inject Individuality
In this architectural showcase of shapes and lines, a curation of personal artefacts litter the home, injecting the home with a distinct individuality. You’ll have a home like no other, and one that tells a unique story – yours!
Interior Designer: Asolidplan
Renovation Cost: $40,000
6. Let Light In
With only 60sqm to work with, the designers for this project got creative. To ensure privacy, but also that light would still filter in, and without making the living area claustrophobic, a half-height white brick wall was erected. Small alterations can have a big impact!
Interior Designer: ELPIS
Renovation Cost: $70,000
7. Outside The Box
This abode is full of smart ideas – from converting a full-length window to a bay window, having a rolling island counter that doubles up as a dining area to a platform form bed with hidden storage – it’s time to think out-of-the-box!
Interior Designer: Prozfile
Renovation Cost: $50,000
8. Walk-in Wardrobes
Here’s another idea – change your master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom to a walk-in wardrobe. That way, once you’ve freshened up, you’ll be walking straight into wardrobe instead of having to walk into another room to change.
Interior Designer: Space Define
Renovation Cost: $45,000
9. Work With Partitions
To partition living areas, this Danish design trades out walls for light grain wood panels slanted at an angle to retain that airy vibe. Note: They used the same laminate to help achieve a cohesive, seamless flow throughout.

10. Utilise The Space
With a big bedroom, you might want to think of throwing in a small study or work area, or adding a bay window – or both! After all, isn’t it about the getting the most out of your space?
Interior Designer: The Scientist
Renovation Cost: $48,000
