Do you want to know more? Keep reading to discover our 4 hacks for upgrading your home.

1. Get Rid of Clutter

What’s one thing all those expensive homes in the magazines have in common? They are simple and decluttered.

You can upgrade any room in your home for free by just cleaning and reorganizing it. Don’t let miscellaneous things accumulate on your coffee table, kitchen counters, or end tables.

But clutter is more than just that pile of mail on your coffee table. If your home has too much decor or is full of a bunch of tiny knickknacks, it’s probably time to clear some out. Focus on just a few key pieces and get rid of the rest.

2. Have a Focal Point

If your room doesn’t have a focal point, then it’ll likely look plain and uninspired no matter how much money you pour into it.

A focal point can be anything you want it to be – an antique mirror on the wall, a bright red chair, or a unique ceiling fan.

The key is to just make sure it stands out from the rest of the decor. If you have tons of antiques, then chances are that antique mirror won’t catch your eye. Instead, get rid of some of the extra antiques you don’t need and keep your antique furniture simple to let a detailed antique mirror will pop.

3. Get Expensive Curtains

Nice windows are a great way to make your home look more luxurious and bring in natural light. But replacing your windows can be expensive.

A more affordable option would be to replace your window treatments. Consider getting floor to ceiling curtains to make the room appear larger. Adding a touch of hardware to curtain ties is a great way to add a little extra interest and make them appear more luxurious.

Another route would be to install roller blinds. This is perfect for anyone looking to further simplify their room or to embrace a modern style. They’ll give you the privacy you need while staying chic and subtle.

4. Use Peel and Stick Tiles

Are you looking for a way to vamp up your kitchen? This can be one of the hardest rooms to upgrade on a budget since appliances, counters, and cabinets all tend to be pricey.

However, you can add a luxurious yet affordable backsplash by going with peel and stick tiles. They’ll look just as good as the real deal without costing a fortune. Plus, they make a great focal point to bring your kitchen to life.

Creating an Expensive Home on a Budget

If you’ve always wanted a luxurious home, it may have been your budget holding you back. But, a luxurious home doesn’t have to hurt your wallet. Just follow our guide to learn how you can update your home, from decluttering to adding expensive curtains.
