Everyone desires to make their place look expensive as expensive is seen as something good and as something which marks the high standard bar but one cannot always put that much money in the decoration due to various circumstances, so here are some ways in which one can make their place look expensive without spending much. 



What makes your place look elegant is the detailing, so while you are decorating your place keep detailing in your mind. Crown modeling is not that expensive that’s why you should opt for it, crown modeling makes sure that your place looks elegant. Columns, chair rails, crown, and baseboard bring glamour with themselves. 

  1. PAINT – A difficult decision

Painting a room is very important and the choosing the color is difficult but the paint can make your place look ridiculously expensive, how? Go for black color and it would add class and character to your place, paint the doors of your interior. 

  1. Add as many PILLOWS as you can

Pillows equal to comfort and they even add elegance to the entire look, pillows are like a cherry on the top it’s just that you need to find the right cherries, go for the large-sized overly stuffed ones, the small ones won’t be that nice of an option as they are very common. 

  1. Treatment for the WINDOWS

Treatments would not only make sure that you have enough privacy but would also add the right amount of elegance without window treatments your place would give an unfinished appearance, do not go for a material which is flimsy because flimsy material equals to cheap appearance and our goal is to make your place look expensive. You must opt for lined draperies. 

  1. Repair your HARDWARE

Time to time you should repair the knobs and your drawers’ pulls or you can even buy some new knobs and pulls that appear expensive, knobs and pulls actually make a difference 


The biggest difference is made through lighting, you can buy some chandelier, no you need not buy a new one go, buy an old one and repair it, you would require some paint for it. 

  1. HARDWOOD over carpet

Carpet can make your place look warm but not elegant, hardwood can make it look adorably elegant, look at hardwood as a nice investment. Hardwood is pretty much known for its durability. 


Add frames to your empty wall, put a painting in them, follow a nice color theme, go for gold and then buy frames and mirrors of the same color, gold represents wealth and also adds elegance to the entire look. 


Why buy new furniture when there are so many stores where you can buy second-hand furniture, make sure what you are buying is in a nice condition and goes with the entire look. How you are placing the furniture matters too, make sure that there is enough space to breathe, do not overcrowd it. 

That’s all for the budget-friendly list. 

The key to decorating any boy’s room is functionality, you need to be very clever while decorating the room and come up with space saving and storage ideas.


  1. You can add alphabet to the wall, huge alphabetic wall hangings are easily available in the market, for instance, buy the alphabet ‘J’ if that’s the very letter of your teen’s name and place it in the center of the wall.
  2. You can follow some theme, decorate the entire room according to the theme, for instance, you can follow the Avengers theme.
  3. Put in a little effort and go online search for catchy phrases and words, once done searching make signs and place them in the entire room, boys love such signs. You can use neon color for the signs.
  4. Bold, deep color and stylish wood strips are what you really need for that wall behind the bed.
  5. While buying the furniture make sure that they can be used for multiple reasons and do not over overcrowd the place, the spacing is very much important and at this age, kids pursue most of their interests like drumming and gaming so the spacing matters.
  6. You can make the room look industrial by using cage lights and pipes, this would not only give an industrial look to the room but would make the room look highly stylish.
  7. If your kid is into sports then use sports as the theme or if he is into bands then use rock bands as a theme.
  8. Add bean bags to the room it would make the room look cozy and moving them won’t cause much trouble to your teen.
  9. Know your child and then decorate his room, ask questions related to his favorite sports, band and talk about his passion and then use all the answers to decorate his room, teens spend most of their precious time in their room so let the room talk and tell who he really is.
  10. You can use green as the main color of the room if you are planning to paint the room in some dark deep color then use green colored bed sheets, green colored curtains and match the design with white.
  11. If your teen’s room is comparatively small then you should buy a platform bed for him and make sure that there are a lot of drawers in it, it would make the room look more organized and spacious.
  12. Instead of a closet add coat racks to the room and with coat racks use hanging bulbs, it would give a nice industrial appearance to the room and most of the guys don’t really prefer closets.

Just keep spacing and detailing in mind while decorating the room and keep asking your teen that what he really wants in the room and how he wishes to decorate his room, let him give you some nice ideas, involve him in decorating his own room. Don’t forget that the room needs to talk and tell everyone that who your child really is.…
