5 Ways To Make Your Home Look Cheap



Just because you are cheap (and nothing wrong with that!), doesn't mean your home has to look it. Unfortunately, in the quest to decorate a home on a super-tight budget, many often fall prey to certain decorating choices that tend to come across as cheap. These items or elements don't enhance a home but instead detract from the beauty and flow of the objects and rooms around it.
Whatever your budget may be, the goal in home decorating is to add beauty and value to a space - and it.

Mass production art.

Few things can cheapen a space more quickly than mass production prints and artwork. Flat, reproduction prints - especially from the more well-known artist like Picasso, Monet, Matisse, or Van Gogh - don't add any hint of originality to a space but instead can make a room look boring and weary. Same with generic reproduction "art" that is sold in bundles or is stacked in bins in most home decorating stores.
Thanks to site such as Etsy and Artfire, it is possible to afford original art.

Furniture sets. 

I know it's easy to go into a big box store and purchase an entire bedroom set, but trust the decorator, you don't enhance a home by doing so.
Furniture created and sold in sets is usually lacking in quality and suffers from tremendous mark-ups, and unless you live in a square furniture showroom, rarely works well in the space that it is intended for.
Mixing and matching styles, fabrics, and woods is a creative way to decorate on a budget and also tends to make a home look fabulous. If you

Navajo White.

Some of you are already shaking your fists at me, I know it, because you may have a home painted entirely in this color. You may even love it. And that's okay. But in the future, try something a little less overused.
Navajo White paint color is a builder special. Because this color is so generic, it has been overused by builders and rental managers for the past 20 years. And because of its reputation for generic ambiguity, it immediately cheapens a space.
It is time to let it go. To keep your.

Cutesy decor.

There are unfortunately things in this world like bunny figurines, owl clocks, nautical towel bars with sailboat wall brackets, quote art in Curlz script, flower power decals, and other awful things that one can find to put in a home.
Some of these items would be fine used sparingly in a little girl's room, but most belong in grandmother's attic. To keep a home looking fresh and elegant, avoid cutesy decor like the plague.
 

Overdone themes

I think there is a time and a place for themes - and that is in a kid's room before the age of 13. After that, decorating themes should be replaced by decorating styles, and this is a totally different thing indeed.
One of the fastest ways to cheapen any space is to have too much of a good thing. I love the seashore so we have a variety of shoreline found objects scattered throughout our home, but an overabundance would make our home look like a cheap seaside motel.
And it would your home
