No matter how much work, time, and money is spent on a home, we all want our homes to look put together. 

You can achieve a high-end look without blowing your whole budget. From a few small investments to some strategic styling, these 8 easy tips will turn your envisioned dream home into a reality that will stun your potential buyers!

"Raise" the Windows

When most people think of expensive homes, they think of grand rooms with tall ceilings. One way to make your ceilings seem taller, without tearing out any floors or ceilings, is to raise your curtains closer to the ceiling so they appear longer. You'll be surprised how much higher this makes the ceilings seem!

Add Some Molding

Adding these finishing touches to your home looks both elegant and traditional. Architectural details such as crown molding are most associated with upscale homes. Despite this perception, you can actually install molding for very low costs. Molding would benefit large rooms because of their highly decorative styles whereas smaller rooms will benefit most from simpler styling.

Make An Entrance

The entryway is the first thing your potential buyers will see as they walk inside your home. Add some style and decor with a few flowers, classy lighting fixtures, and a mirror or two. Even having fresh flowers on display will surely boost your guests' mood and make them feel welcomed as soon as they walk in the door.

A Stylish Backsplash

Update the backsplash in your kitchen with 3D gel-like tiles that you can peel off and stick on the wall. This will give you and potential buyers the look and feel of custom backsplash (for a lot less money!)

Go For The Gold

Metals, especially gold, always scream luxury to us. There are plenty of inexpensive brass and gold accessories that will help make your space look more luxurious. It can even be as simple as replacing the hardware on kitchen cabinets, door knobs, lighting fixtures, or wall accents.

Marble Makes A  Difference

All-marble countertops are typically kitchen goals, but the actual materials can be pricey. Why not bring these high-end materials into other spaces? Think lazy susans, marble coasters, accent tables, cutting boards, picture frames, and more! 

Dim The Lights

Adding a dimmer on every light switch can make any room feel luxurious. By adjusting the light you can change the mood to cozy, romantic, relaxing, or whatever you’re in the mood for. Although this seems small, buyers will love this added touch to your home!

Showcase Artwork

Art is a great way to give your space a luxurious and unique feel. Create a gallery wall with several smaller framed pieces of art or go for a big statement piece that will take over the entire space.
