3. Define your Own Art ($20 – $100)
Art is always welcome in any room, but it is expensive and not something you can toss in and out of your home.
- Consignment stores are great places to buy art pieces that are inexpensive.
- Arranging traditional and classic photos is a cheap way to dress up your walls.† You can use a configuration of various sizes and colors. All you need is some empty frames, a computer and a printer.

4. Floral/Plant Arrangements ($20-$50)
Plant arrangements are great to add to a room. Try something different even with plants:
- A small collection of succulents
- A colorful variation of cacti
- A Bonsai
- Replace the container if you donít want to change the plant or just add a bunch of fresh flowers if you will be entertaining.
5. Window Treatments ($100)
Donít be intimidated by window treatments.† Many retailers sell a variety of inexpensive options. One way to make unique and exotic window treatments is to purchase sari fabric from an Indian market (there are Indian food and home product markets in most major cities in America). They have a lot of yardage and come in many inspiring colors and patterns.
6. Slip Covers and Throw pillows ($30-$150)
Slip covers are life savers when it is time to salvage that couch you love, and inexpensive when compared to buying new furniture. They come in a lot of colors and universal sizes that fit most sofas. Add throw pillows to contrast the slip cover.
