The plus point of metal tiles is that they are available in either silver or copper shades. So, you can pair them up with any décor and color palette whether it is a trendy home filled with contemporary colors or a country style room that exudes warmth and elegance with wooden beams and old-fashioned furniture.

Go for Modular Storage
by Julie Smith
Adding storage unit is not an exciting remodeling work, but it’s a better option if you have a really uninspiring wall in a room. Using artwork or posters is a good idea but transforming it into a storage unit will solve your problem if space is at a premium in your humble abode. Boost your blank wall’s style with a floating or separate modular shelving unit. Create a colorful interest by displaying books, accessories, bins, and boxes.
Take Advantage of Crown Molding
by Diane Durocher Interiors
Using crown molding for doors, walls, or windows is a proven way to give your home a fresh look by spending less. Pick a room and transform its appearance by replacing the old trim with fresh crown molding. Go for simple, thin molding to avoid a pretentious look. Besides, remember to keep the décor of the rest of the room equally simple but charming so that the entire room maintains a similar visual weight.
Choose Roman Shades for Windows
by Studio Marcelo Brito
Applying window treatments is another proven trick for budget remodeling projects. Roman shades are a great option if you are looking for an alternative to those ribbed-like typical vertical shades or blinds. You can use the roman shades in various ways. A popular application is using similar-patterned shades in a wide group of windows to create a uniform and much cleaner look. Mount them a bit higher than the windows if you want to add scale and height to the place.
It’s not necessary to spend big bucks to make your home look elegant and lovely. A carefully thought out plan coupled with a bit design sense and creative flair can transform your home from a dejected den to a beautiful, charming abode.
