Use Neutral Colours

One way for you to make your space look way more expensive would be for you to add some neutral colours. You can add some neutral lamp shades or you can even try and replace your couch. If you want, you can also paint the walls so that everything matches. If you need to take things to that next level, then it is very easy for you to add some nice cushions to your space too. Little things like this can make the world of difference and it can also help you to make your home that bit more comfortable too. Parquet flooring can also be installed if you want to make your home cleaner and easier to maintain.


Fake a very expensive look by simply adding some built-ins to your home. You can easily use several bookcases so you can try and create the look of a built-in. There are also ways for you to try and use shelves to create this look as well. When you explore options like this, you will soon find that it is more than possible for you to get the best result out of your efforts with very little money.

Update your Hardware

Another quick and expensive way for you to update the look of your kitchen or even your bathroom would be for you to try and invest in some hardware. You can easily add a towel bar, or you can even coordinate your door pulls. If you want to make sure that you are making the most out of your hardware upgrade, then you do need to make sure that you are installing them right, and that you are not opting for hardware that is cheap or of poor quality.


You really do not need to spend a fortune on landscaping if you want to get a very expensive look. In fact, it’s more than possible for you to plant some perennials in a flower bed. These are ideal as they come back year after year. Just make sure that you put down some mulch, as this is the best way for you to ensure that you give your landscaping a very fresh update. Things like this can make all the difference to your home and it can make it much more comfortable for yourself in the long run.
