There is a couple of big differences between a custom home and a cookie-cutter builder grade home. They are the quality of the materials and workmanship, and the number of custom details. Trying to upgrade all of the standard-grade materials in your house. That is not a very affordable and efficient way of improving the look of your home. But fortunately, there are lots of things you can do which are easy, budget-friendly, and make your house look like it was custom-made if it wasn’t.
A few details that you can transform your room look more expensive is. Crown moldings, chair railings, wainscoting, baseboards, and other kinds of architectural details. Most of them really aren’t that hard to install or that costly to buy, but make a huge impact on the look of the room.
By using a more expensive material in a small area that is the focal point of the room makes the whole room seem more luxurious. But since it is a small area, it doesn’t cost nearly as much as trying to upgrade the whole space.
One large mirror can make your room look bigger and brighter, which also helps it to look more expensive. You can also hang a paint or statue to create a focal point that will get reflected in the mirror. It’s really suited for a small room, it can open up space and added some sparkle to your small room.
If you don’t want to spend money on artwork and you happen to have some pictures that bring back memories (like a trip you have taken, a favorite park, a family portrait or even your own garden), you can have them blown up to poster size and frame them.
One of the utilities that have a big impact on your room. Is your light fixtures. Even replacing your light fixture might cost you a little more money than some of the other options in the list. Replacing these fixtures with better quality ones not only improves the look of the fixture itself but usually improves the quality of the light as well.
