These are my tips how to make your home look expensive :
1. Keep it clean
No matter how much money you’ve spent on your home if there’s clutter, it’s going to feel gross. If you can commit to making your bed picking things up off the floor and clearing your surfaces, you will start to feel better about your space and contact way more inspired to make it beautiful.
The best part the only thing cleaning costs you is your time may be a few Clorox wipes.
2. Always have fresh flower

If you’re looking to save a few dollars, skip the prearranged two bouquets and just buy a couple of bundles of roses or hydrangeas and DIY a little aroma yourself.
3. Hang Curtains
Now I know I say this in nearly every single article, but that’s just because it works. There’s something about curtains you guys that just drips luxury it adds so much to space makes it feel bigger more homey cozier, and I don’t know it just like makes a random box like feel like a luxury room. I cannot explain it, just try it and remember when you go to hang that make sure your rods are close to the ceiling not right by the window earn that from your mom.
Now don’t just buy them and throw them up on the windows. Make sure you wash them to dry them and iron them. You guys this makes all the difference in the world. I’m not kidding you could buy $ 10 IKEA curtains which is what I have in my house and if you iron them they look like wet sound curtains.
One more tip for a fuller more substantial look double up on the curtain makes a big difference.
4. Hang Your TV
Now this one shocks me how many people don’t do this.There’s nothing luxurious about a plastic TV stand hang that baby. I know it can seem a little intimidating at first but let me tell you it is so worth it now most. TVs come with a wall mount but if yours doesn’t you can find one on Amazon for under 100 bucks and it will change the game in your living room.
Your husband may be upset with you but tell them it’s worth it like I did to mine we have plaster walls it was much more difficult just drywall but anyway I digress.
5. Invest your budget and things that you sit on
Okay real talk you guys we’ve all been there before when you’re furnishing a new home and trying to keep your budget low.
There is a massive temptation to go cheap when it comes to investing in a sofa because it’s a critical price item you get a home you most likely build it yourself and then every time you and your guests sit down you regret it. I’ve been there you’ve probably been there well those days are over okay so why am I saying all this about a sofa well because we just got a new sofa and forever we’ve had an inexpensive couch that was not very comfortable.
