Take the time to read on – you might be surprised at these simple tips for fooling your guests into believing you are living a high-end life.

Crown molding – details matter Decorating

It’s all in the details. When it comes to decorating your home to be upscale and bespoke, details are key. In this case, the detail is crown molding. Crown moldings help give a room a complete or finished look; it brings the ceiling and walls closer together, giving them an elegant appearance.

Without that finishing touch, pieces tend to look cheap or unfinished. Fortunately, crown moldings are relatively inexpensive (especially the plastic paintable versions), making them affordable on almost any budget. There are several widths to choose from, but if you want a bigger impact, choose the widest trim your budget will allow.

For the ultimate in glamor, try adding all types of moldings to your home i.e. crowns, high baseboards, ceiling beams, columns, ceiling medallions, chair rails, etc.

Painting – Color matters

Paint color is perhaps one of the hardest decisions to make when decorating a room, especially when the remaining decor will be based on the color palette. However, if you are looking for elegance, certain colors add instant glamor to your home.

Choose one of two color options: bold and dramatic hues OR soft, understated hues. These shades allow you to add instant elegance to your home. It just depends on your color personality and the option you choose. Painting interior doors black is another great idea.

It automatically creates an expensive feel, without causing much damage to your wallet. However, if you choose this option, be sure to add black accessories to the space to tie the whole design together.

Hardware Finishes – Go For Unique

You can indeed walk into a home improvement store and be faced with an entire wall of drawer handles and knobs. However, this is the exact moment when you need to turn and exit. These loose hardware pieces are inexpensive, but they are also of poor quality and looking cheap.

For a few bucks more – though not enough to break the bank – you can shop for stylish, more expensive pieces elsewhere. Small hardware stores, flea markets, and antique shops are the best places to look.

You can find sturdy and expensive-looking drawer knobs and pulls at a much more affordable price, giving your home the sleek and unique look you desire.

Hardwood is preferred over carpet

Wall-to-wall carpeting in a home is indeed warm and soft, but it doesn’t match the same stylishness factor as solid, shiny hardwood floors. Hardwood offers a classic and elegant appearance and can be found at an affordable price. Buying hardwood for your home will be an investment, but it is a wise investment.

Hardwood lasts a long time and offers a good return on your investment, especially if you ever sell your home. Laminate is another option, but make sure you buy the best laminate on the market to ensure lasting quality. If it is a choice between a laminate rug or a plush rug, we say choose the plush rug.

To get the most out of it, you’ll want to look into different types of wood, as some are more expensive than others. For example, birch and oak are generally cheaper than cherry. Also, consider choosing a dark color for a more luxurious appearance, but be sure to add some area rugs to tie the overall design of the room from floor to ceiling.

Although many people think that investing in expensive sofas is not part of their budget, buying cheaper furniture could cost you more in the end. They tend to look cheap and poorly put together, which means they fall apart faster.

If you want to have a stylish piece of furniture in your home, check out second-hand stores, estate sales, and consignment stores for quality parts at a more affordable price. You may want the furniture to be upholstered to match your decor. Saving on furniture still allows you to make room in the budget to get the items re-upholstered, giving you a high-end designer look at a fraction of the cost.
