Stylish headboard

Starting in the bedroom, you can transform your space in seconds when you add an oversized stylish looking headboard.

This helps emphasize the most important part of the room: the bed.

Interior designer Jay Jeffers narrated housing etc: “An eye-catching headboard is a small change in bedroom design that makes a big impact.

“I often choose custom, full-wall upholstered headboards, which are not only visually appealing, but also feel a lot more premium and premium – making the whole room feel warm and cozy.”

Add a rug

Getting a rug is one of the easiest and greatest ways to make an instant impression in a room.

It can be helpful to add a pop of color or add texture to a neutral scheme – and the best part is, there’s rug for every budget.

The best tip is to choose it oversized to add a sense of grandeur to your room.

Punam Chada, Buyer at Carpetright, commented houses and gardens: “Adding new carpet can instantly transform a room and is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to add color without a big investment.”

Oversized flower pots

If you want to upgrade your home, using plants is one of the best ways.

From indoor trees to giant palm trees, plants can instantly enhance the look of a room, and large, oversized pots can become focal points.

Designer Irene Gunter said: “I think plants are a great way to bring life to neglected corners of the home or hard-to-decorate spaces.

“In addition, they bring nature indoors and can create a mood-enhancing connection to nature. Don’t confine your plants to the edges of the room; A display of grouped plants can create a beautiful focal point.”


While you may be tempted to outfit your home with budget Ikea products, you might want to give used antiques a try.

You might find a bargain and help make your home look less cheap.

Designer Megan Evans said: “Antiques are a great way to enhance the overall look of any room.

“The age and patina of antiquity, especially pieces with gold or silver leaf, will instantly enhance your home. Overlaying older pieces with new ones gives a more curated look, as opposed to everything feeling new and fresh, catalog-like.”

Look for rustic French furniture pieces like a chest of drawers, dining room chairs, or tables.

add art

Many people shy away from buying art because they believe art can be expensive.

However, you can also purchase some on a very small budget.

Artem Kropovinsky said about this houses and gardens: “You don’t have to spend a lot of money on art.

“You can find affordable pieces at thrift stores, Flea markets or online platforms.”

Statement lighting

You may think that subtle lighting would be better for a small home.

However, if you want your home to feel luxurious, you should follow the mantra: “The bigger the merrier”.
