(2) Crown-mold Your Walls:

To define the space between walls and ceiling, crown moldings are a great option. Opt for wider trims, since it looks more impressive and stacks the space with more richness.

(3) Decorate Your Walls with Plates:

Another amazing budget design idea is to decorate variously sized and textured plates with contrasting colors on a blank wall. All plates should be neatly centered on the most dramatic one, to give an instant face lift.

(4) Shop for Throw Pillows:

Small pillows on the sofa aren't worth a bargain. Instead, opt for over sized throw pillows (22-inch pillow covers with 24-inch inserts) that look luxurious and definitely leave some visual impact. These are ideal for your sofa or arm chairs and come in varied shapes.

(5) Go Coastal:

Give your staircase, entryway or kitchen a more coastal look with shells, sea glass, corals and beach bounty for a more peaceful and coastal feel.

(6) Stick to Geometric Patterns:

Give your walls a definitive look with paintings that share a common geometric pattern viz square or rectangle. Prefer odd numbers as they look more attractive and eye-pleasing.

(7) Style with Candles:

Use your coffee table, center table or any spacious surface to display variously sized candles on glass plates, jars or trays, to help spruce up the space. Try placing four to five candles together.

(8) Use Table Runners:

Table runners are another great budget design idea for accentuating a small-sized table. An over-sized scarf or patterned fabric scrap creates the desired elegance.

(9) Amplify Your Space:

Mirrors are the best way to create an illusionary amplification of the room as it bounces both natural and artificial light, during day and night, to make the room appear virtually bigger. The mirror should be placed near the window and should be around three-fourth of the wall's height.

(10) Paint Your Ceilings:

Add a dash of color to your ceilings with interesting choices of buttery yellows, lavenders or grey-blues to brighten-up the monotonous whites.
