Giving Your Home A Custom Look On A Budget

We all fancy living in one of those posh places from Pinterest. Yet sometimes, we feel our budgets hinder us from splurging on that luxury look we've been dreaming about. No need to worry. Here are five ways to add a high-end look to your home without a steep price tag.

  1. Light Fixtures
    One of the easiest ways to change the feel of your home without making a huge impact on your bottom line is by updating light fixtures. Modernizing from some past-their-prime styles or stepping back in time for some inspired lighting can help change the feel of every room in your house quickly. It's also a great way to flex your personal style without overstating it.

  2. New Faucets
    Another change akin to changing your fixtures is your faucets. It's another subtle change that can bring a whole new feel to a room. New faucets also bring a ton of new features over faucets from even a couple of years ago. New innovations, finishes, and feels give those upgrading via faucet a lot of control over their home improvement.

  3. Paint Color
    Another fun way to alter your home's perception is with paint. Splashing a new color on a wall or two is guaranteed to get a second glance, but to make an impact pick an unlikely target. Pick your favorite shade of red and grab your front door, and soon your home becomes the one on the block with the red door. Or, sand and prime your laminate floor before giving it a different sheen.

  4. Crown Molding
    Crown molding is the old standby when it comes to making a home uniquely yours, and there's a reason for that. It has a timeless quality to it that really leaves a room feeling finished. It's also available in a wide array of sizes and designs, making it easy to give your room just the right feel.

  5. Hardware
    Cabinet and drawer knobs can be another way to give your home a unique feel while also allowing you to develop your own personal style. You can peruse the aisles at your local big-box hardware stores for an almost faint-inducing number of options or seek out truly unique sets at flea markets and estate sales.

You can take joy in knowing that by using a few of these tricks of the trade from interior designers, you too can create an elegant look in your home even on a tight budget.
