Years ago, if you wanted to see what was new and great in the world of home design and decor, you had two main channels (pardon the pun) to do so, HGTV and the glossy magazines that were on newsstands everywhere.
But times have certainly changed. Today, design inspiration comes largely from social media platforms like Instagram, TikTok, and Pinterest. Instead of the glossy pages we once knew, we now turn to an infinite amount of digital pages for the latest and greatest in home decor. And aside from paying a data fee, it's free and on-demand, so great ideas are always at your fingertips, whenever inspiration strikes.

But accessibility is not the only difference. In the HGTV and glossy magazines versus social media showdown, budgets are a real consideration. Not only can the folks behind some of the most popular social media accounts show you how to decorate your space, but they can also show you how to do it without spending a small fortune. TikTokkers, in particular, are great for finding cheap things that only look expensive — aka bougie on a budget.
