Room Makeovers That Won't Break the Budget
* Go green — with plants. Whether it’s a single palm leaf in a vase or a pretty silk tree, greenery adds a lot to a room. For the best effect, group plants of varying heights, fullness and color together.
* Replace cabinet hardware with decorative pulls and handles. It’s an easy way to add personality to ordinary cabinetry. New switch plates are another affordable change that can make a difference.
* Dress up your windows with a new valance. A fresh color will perk things up in no time. If you have solid curtains or sheers, try a patterned valance. If the curtains are print, complement them with a solid valance.
* Add a new throw rug and a few fresh kitchen towels and you’ve got a brand new look for next to nothing.
Some creative thinking and a little elbow grease is all it takes to make a room feel like new.
