When you’re designing a home, it’s easy to get carried away dreaming about pricey sofas, rugs and art. But big-ticket items aren’t as important as they seem, and plunking down the money to buy them is no guarantee you’ll end up with a home you love.

Often it’s the small touches that make a space feel truly inviting and memorable.

“Style is in the mix of things,” said Cliff Fong, founder of the Los Angeles interior design firm Matt Blacke. “It doesn’t take any imagination, or any level of taste, to go to a big-box store or an Italian design store and buy everything. That just takes deep pockets.”

If you’re willing to take your time — hunting for special yet affordable pieces and doing the work yourself — he said, “There’s a way to approach design at any budget.”

To help, we asked Mr. Fong and other interior designers for ideas about how to make a big impact on a small budget.
