  1. my tip fake marble contact paper and fake stainless steel contact paper. you can buy them for $20 per roll and it would cover all the table tops in the house for $20. no need to buy an expensive fancy fridge. just buy a basic fridge with a white finish and cover with stainless steel contact paper to make it look like an expensive one. do this with other appliances like your washing machine etc.

  2. Colour is also a HUGE factor in looking expensive. Purple is a no-no. So is anything fluorescent, or made in cheap fabrics.

  3. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed it. One thing to share is, it is important to keep a budget for anything and stick to it. Another important skill to develop, to know where in the budget to splurge to get the most bang for your buck and where in the budget to economize.

  4. I love doing this. Except for pieces handed down from family or that rare one of a kind piece, most of the stuff at home is recycled materials. The basket that comes as part of a Christmas gift, fancy bottles that held jam, or that inexpensive house warming gift dressed up to look expensive.
    Also, patience is an awesome virtue in this endeavor. Wait, until one finds that beautiful piece at a great price. Another virtue is knowing where to look, how to shop, and grabbing the right opportunities that come your way.
    The greatest (cheap but harmless) thrill is when people think you spent a fortune on your house. 😂😂😂

  5. nice ideas here for increasing value. The molding ideas is really good because it really makes a difference from plain to something feeling more customized as such we see a lot of properties with these features taking to even greater levels with tongue and groove as an example. All in all, good information!
