Having a high-end looking home can be difficult, especially if you have a tight decorating budget. Fortunately, there are ways – even on a budget – that you can get the high-end look you dream of. Here are some simple ways to give timeless elegance to your home without paying much.

Paint

Paint color is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions to make when decorating a room, especially when the remaining décor will be based on the color palette. Choose one of these two color options—bold and dramatic or soft, understated hues. These hues allow you to add instant elegance to your home. It simply depends on your color personality in terms of which option you choose.

Hardwood

Solid, gleaming hardwood floors provide a classic, elegant appearance and can be found at an affordable price. Purchasing hardwood for your home will be an investment, but it is definitely a wise one. Laminate is another option but be sure to buy the best laminate on the market to ensure a lasting quality. Also, consider choosing a dark color for a more luxurious appearance, but be sure to add a few area rugs to tie the overall design of the room together from floor to ceiling.

Lighting

Designer light fixtures will add more elegance to your home than the standard chandelier. Start by looking at flea markets and second-hand stores. You will get a unique piece at a budget-friendly price.  Some pieces may require a little buffing or a new paint job, but can look like a million dollars for just a few bucks. In addition, be sure to have several different light sources, including table lamps and floor lamps throughout the home to increase the elegant feeling.
