Of course, if you are not sure whether or not you can paint the walls right hire a professional to save time, money and nerves. If you don’t mind handmade things you can always recycle old discarded stuff and make new interior accessories.
If your new color scheme requires new furniture don’t rush into the store buying stuff on credit. Consider reupholstering your old furniture with new inexpensive materials.
Modern style is known for its minimalism. Use it to your advantage. When remodeling on budget use plain furniture, simple color scheme and basic materials. These can make a great base for interesting and jazzy interior accessories, lighting, furniture arrangement and accents. Thus cutting on all big expenses you’ll get to enjoy a modern design with deep accents and accessories. Use your creative energy to jazz up this minimalist design.

Since you have to do as much as you can yourself be careful and don’t rush. Read instructions and educational material before trying something, practice painting at the small part of wall that isn’t quiet so much on display. Think how and what you are going to do and make sure you know how to do it right because redoing something just adds to your expenses.
