Pinterest is a treasure trove of awesome DIY projects, styled outfits, wedding inspo and, of course, interior design. Who doesn’t love pinning marble countertops and snuggly headboards and reading nooks? After all, the whole concept behind Pinterest is that it’s a virtual inspiration board — emphasis on the inspiration. It lets you file away those ambitious ideas for the day that you might get to design your actual dream home. But have you ever thought about how much the reno of your dreams might actually cost?
Well, they’re not called dream homes for nothing. E! Online estimates the total cost of would be $2,522,140! “And let’s preface that with the fact that this is on the low end,” they say. Yikes!
This figure is a rough estimate based on the top pins for each room in a house. Tech Insider cobbled the results together to make one seriously enviable abode. We’re talking the works: High ceilings, open floor plans, farmhouse sinks, granite countertops, kitchen islands, home theatres, rustic bathrooms, under-stairs storage, chandeliers, fire pits, entertainment spaces and the most important feature of all — Walk. In. Shoe. Closets.
Don’t fret if that price tag is not in the stars for you. There are plenty of ways to have a swoon-worthy home without paying full price or even shopping. You can DIY an entire nursery like Brit did, organize your closet on the cheap like Khloé K. and hack your cheap IKEA finds into so much more. You can even recreate an entire home collection from Anthropologie with a little creativity and know-how. Just make sure you pin all of your favorite furniture hacks to turn your dream home into a reality ;)
