Decorating with antiques seems to be the high point for any interior decorator; it indeed is for those “Do It Yourselfers.” The problem many have with antiques is the price tag. Having a room or better yet, a house full of tasteful antiques, adds instant beauty and charm. Luckily, there are more resources than that corner antique store to find what you need.
Finding affordable antiques is much like a game, one that can be won provided that you are savvy and resourceful enough. More and more decorators are turning to Online Classifieds to find what they need and often met with positive results. Another great way to find affordable antiques is to buy items that need slight repair and then fix them up. Will provide a great idea to flex your artistic muscle as well as customizing the piece to fit the decor.
The most critical information to remember when shopping for antiques is to remain persistent and be flexible. You may not be able to find exactly the right piece, or the part may be too expensive, so settling for second best may be the only option. Visit the local antique shops often, as well as classifieds, and online communities to find that piece to compliment any room. Antiques are a great way to decorate a room and often provide that much-needed charm that the house may lack.
