Painting your home
Painting your home is one of the easiest ways to give a whole new look to it, whether you choose a bold and dramatic pallate or soft and subtle hues. If you take care of using colours that will not clash with the rest of your decor scheme, then this can turn out to be a clever way of adding glamour, yet keeping things well within your budget. Painting just one wall instead of all four, can also save money even though it can change the look of your room. And if you have an even smaller budget for painting, you can just accent-paint instead of getting one entire wall — paint just the trims, the doorframes, the window sills etc in a contrasting colour that complements your decor.

Display some art creatively
A triptych can increase the wow factor of your living room. You can download free art and then cut it into three equal pieces. Frame all three and viola you have an expensive looking art work on your bare wall.

Use large pillows
Punch up the elegance factor of your room by choosing comfortable and elegant pillows layered up against each other. Choose the best quality fillers and make sure that you avoid the standard size and go for ones that are large. Cushions that are overstuffed and larger usually create a plush look. Do not scrimp on the quality of covers — because that can make or break the look.

Pick unique hardware
Little details like the door knobs and drawer pulls can give your home a new look. Avoid buying the common ones, look for ones that are unique and interesting, yet affordable that give an elegant and expensive look.
