We all want a home that we can show off to family and friends. Unfortunately, for many of us, having our homes professionally designed is just not an option. The good news is there are many easy and inexpensive ways to trick your guests into thinking you spent big bucks on a high-end interior decorator.

1.  Invest in Crown Molding

Crown molding is all about the details.  Crown molding easily makes any room complete by bringing the ceiling and the walls together, and gives your room a classic aesthetic. Without this type of finish, rooms will often look incomplete. The good news is that crown molding is fairly inexpensive and is easily affordable on almost any budget.

2.  Cover Your Windows

Installing window treatments is a simple way to add elegance and privacy to your home. For a high-end look, incorporate materials such as natural silk, linen and cotton. If you’re not a fan of drapes, you can also try bamboo shades or wood blinds. Try to avoid using unlined, flimsy materials such as polyester because they look as cheap as their price tag.
