It’s In The Details. You need to go deep with details if you want your house to look fantastic, and one of the best ways to do it is with crown molding. Not only does it add some texture to the room, it brings the ceiling and the walls together for a touch of class. Don’t be intimidated by adding crown molding to each room – you can do it cheaply like they did here.

The Right Furniture. You can embrace minimalist, white furnishings, or you can go full Western style furniture, it’s all in the items that you choose. As long as you coordinate your furniture to look similar, you’re going to create a classic and modern, or rustic and charming look that will fit in well with the look you want to go for. Either way, elegance is the result.

Be Clear With Color. You need to think about how you want your home to reflect you. So, choose very few color options if you want to look elegant. White is a pure color in the home; it opens up the light and makes every room look huge. Add some splashes of color – just one extra color – and you can create an elegant look. Think white with tones of grey, or deep red accents alongside cream walls. 

Add Some Layers. We talked about crown molding being good for adding layers to the home, well, textures do it, too. Think about rugs on top of carpet, stacked pillows on the sofa and 3D pictures and art on the walls. If you make the room look thick with life, you can really embrace an elegant look. You also add some depth to the space, which makes it look more functional than anything else.

Use The Windows. Your windows need to be treated like the eyes of the home. You’d decorate your eyes with mascara and eyeshadow to make them beautiful and window treatments do the same job. Decorating and framing the windows can change the way the room looks and transform the actual windows themselves. 

You can do a lot to make your home look elegant – it doesn’t take much work, either. And you can do it all on a budget!
