Let’s face it, when we decorate our homes, we want visitors to think we paid good money for that look, but the truth is most of us can’t afford the home décor looks of our dreams. Here are a few ways to make your home look expensive without the actual cost!
Affordable DIY upgrades for all skill levels
We live in a world where do-it-yourself projects have never been more popular and easy to complete. Spend some time online viewing tutorials to see how you can upgrade your home without breaking the bank. You will be amazed how much you can do to no matter what skill level you are on. Custom cabinetry is expensive, so save yourself hundreds of dollars by painting or staining the cabinets you already have. Top them off with new hardware and your kitchen will look brand new without the hefty cost. Frames always make items look expensive, so paint a few 2x4s and frame your bathroom mirrors or your television if it hangs on the wall. Take it to the next level by purchasing dollar store frames, painting them if needed, and framing your light switches.
Unique home décor
If your home décor is upgraded, your house will automatically seem more expensive, but décor is pricey so you might hesitate when it comes to updating your décor. Hesitate no longer, simply let your creativity work magic. Purchase cheap closet mirrors, paint their frames, and mount them to closet doors to give an upgraded feel. Tie your curtains back with unique hardware to make them look more expensive. Use decorative brackets to add depth to windows that do not have blinds or curtains. If you can’t afford new kitchen appliances, use stainless steel paint or even bold paint colors to make your appliances look new and expensive. Glue a small tea plate to an old candle stick, give it a fresh coat of paint, and use it to hold soap next to your kitchen sink. There are several ways to give your home a pricey vibe without the actual cost.
The magic of fresh paint
Paint can transform the look of any home in any condition. Painting the walls can make a difference, whether you are just freshening up the current color, or switching up the look with a new color. Be creative with paint, and make drab linoleum unique by painting it a bold color. Go a step further and make your home look more expensive by painting faux windows on the garage door as suggested by Buzzfeed. Spray paint air vents to give your home an upgraded and expensive look. Give your home character by painting walls in a unique way rather than just one solid color. Lastly, use ceilings as accent walls by painting them a color other than white.
