Uncomfortably seated on your white or “used to be” white couch? Your feet buried in the dusty carpet that you picked up at grandma’s before you moved in? You try to remember why one day you invested half a salary on that neon pink plastic table while swearing undeniably every time you walk by those yellow checkered curtains.

Spring cleaning is around the corner and this is the perfect time to redecorate! And if eating rice for 3 months to be able to afford redecorating your living room with the help of a professional does not entice you, know that there is indeed an alternative. No more self-persuading that "maybe, this table isn't that bad".

The start-ups listed below are evolving interior design so that it is quicker, more affordable, and more convenient for customers. These startups are ready to transform your interior.
