The difference a simple frame can make to the look of your room is incredible.
You can add a frame to just about anything to make it look like a work of art.
Kids drawings, posters, family photos, and your artwork can make a wall in your house look like an exhibit straight out of an art museum.
Paint your Outdoor Eyesores
You already know what I'm talking about.
Your electrical box and all the random wiring and piping running up and down the exterior of your home.
It's an eyesore at best.
While you're at it, add in or paint other things in your yard to help them blend in even more.
It doesn't have to be anything fancy.
If your walls are bare other than the artwork we talked about earlier, molding is an excellent way to add a pop of style.
Even the most straightforward piece of molding can take your walls from boring to breathtaking.
If you don't have them already, installing shutters is an excellent way of adding instant curb appeal.
Shutters will make your windows look two times as big as they are.
Choose a color that is the exact opposite of your exterior walls to give it an extra pop.
Paint with Neutral Colors
Don't waste much time picking out which colors you'd like to paint your walls.
Stick with neutral colors.
It's also easier to match your furniture and accessories to neutral colored walls.
Hide your Trash
Your old beat up trashcan might be the biggest eyesore in your yard.
Even if they trash cans are in immaculate shape, they're still trash cans.
There's nothing sexy about a trash can.
You can buy a storage shed made just for trash cans.
A few lattice panels are enough to do the trick.
Update those Old Fixtures
Old doorknobs, cabinet handles, drawer pulls, and light switch panels can all be swapped out relatively easy.
This is a great way to update your kitchen and bathroom without spending thousands of dollars.
You can also replace your outdoor knobs and handles.
Add Window Boxes
A window box is just a flower box attached to your window.
It is, and it can make the inside and outside of your home seem more luxurious.
On the outside, it will help break up that big boring wall and make the windows more prominent.
Mirrors are a great way to make the house look bigger.
Add a frame to them, and it's also like adding another piece of art to your room.
Hide Your AC
Similar to your trash cans, but not quite as offensive, is your A/C unit.
It's a necessary evil.
It's as "
We want a comfortable air-conditioned home, but we don't want the eyesore in the yard.
Ditch The Dated
Sometimes making your home look more expensive is as simple as purging the house of the old and outdated.
Ugly light fixture? Trash it and buy a new one.
Ugly brass doorknobs? Replace them with a shiny new knob.
Front Door Facelift
Getting a new front door is a sure fire way to up your curb appeal.
However, that's expensive, and it might not be in your budget.
You can even add molding to it to make it look like a grand entrance.
Hide TV Wires
Luckily, there's a now a wireless version of everything.
However, not everything has cut their cords, and the wires that are left over can be unsightly.
Like that clump of wires behind your TV.
I've got a quick fix for you.
Buy a curtain rod that matches the decor of your room.
Now you're a magician who just made a bunch of ugly wires disappears.
Paint Windows On Your Garage
Ugly garage door?
No worries, just paint some fake windows.
This obviously won't do anything to brighten up your garage, but it will make your house look a little more expensive to passers-by.
It might be fake, but it makes it look better.
