5 Inexpensive Ways to Make Your Home Look More Expensive

Ok, so you have decided to sell your home, getting ready for an appraisal, or just need to jazz up the old look. Did you know that you don't have to knock down walls or hire a fancy contractor to spice up your home look? 

Here are a few tips of some DIY projects you can do for a fraction of the cost!

#1 Mirror Framing



How easy is this?! Update your plain builder's mirrors with some simple trim to create a frame. Paint the color of the wall or add a pop of color to the room! 

Make them as wide or as narrow as you would like and make those boring old mirrors pop. 






#2 Faux Wainscoting

Create this look-alike wainscoting with simple boards or even picture frames to resemble high-end details for an accent wall or even an entryway. These accents can make a room or foyer look like you have shelled out the big bucks for this sophisticated look. 






 #3 Easy Crown Molding


These can be one of the most expensive add-ons you choose in a home. Why add that kind of expense onto your bill when you can create crown molding accents with premade items and a few minutes of your time? Try and find pre-cut blocks to join together trim in the corners for an elegant look. 





#4 Window Trim

Who wants a plain old window with some blinds? Spice it up! Just like the mirror hack, you can add some custom trim around your windows to make them pop. Keep them a clean, white tint, or add some color to brighten up your room. 







#5 Faux Ceiling Beams


These are all the rage lately. The exposed ceiling beams can now be found in country living style homes to the most chic of decor. Just adding these to the exterior of your ceiling can add an immense amount of character to your living space.
