10 Easy Ways To Make Your House Look More Expensive

As many of you know, I live in a builder grade house that I have been updating so that it doesn’t look so builder grade. Along the way, I have found some easy and relatively inexpensive ways to accomplish this.

Two of the big differences between a custom home and a cookie-cutter builder grade home is the quality of the materials and workmanship, and the number of custom details…or in my case, the fact that there were NO custom details in my house…

Trying to replace all of the standard-grade materials in the house isn’t a very cost-effective (or efficient) way of improving the look of your home…but fortunately there are lots of things that you can do which are easy, budget-friendly, and make your house look more expensive.

    would love to see how to decorate expensive for small size houses 800 and under

    • Hi Gina…A lot of the same principals will apply to small houses as they do to big ones. But you’re right that it’s hard to find pictures of smaller houses that show it. I’ll see what I can do about coming up with some :)
