Keep it Clean
A clutter free and sparkling home is the number one thing about achieving a high end look and is the most inexpensive thing you can do.
Replace the Dated Fixtures
If that eyesore overhead makes you cringe during every meal, ditch it! A statement light fixture can make any room elegant and rich while creating a focal point.
Luxury is in the Hardware
Give a bathroom or kitchen a updated new look by coordinating hardware. Replacing mismatched accessories with new and modern coordinating pieces is an affordable update that will make your space look polished and luxurious.
Treat Your Windows
You don't have to spend a fortune on new window treatments. Sometimes you can change the entire look of your space with an inexpensive set of window coverings/ curtains. Hang them on a nice high quality rod and enjoy the new look.
Add Just One Splurge
Don't replace everything. Just replace one thing at a time. A single investment piece will elevate your whole space with a more high-end look. Maybe it's that 8 year old couch or your old oak kitchen table. It will be worth it if you're going for that high end look.
Step one: Take down any cheep frames and knick-knacks you've collected over the years.
Step two: Replace it all with just one big, bold and beautiful painting or print as a focal point on the wall.
Update Interior Doors
Interior doors don't have to be solid and boring. Beautiful, space-saving pocket or sliding barn doors may be worth the splurge. Choose a style you love and add some elegance and personality by replacing those flat panel doors.
Kick Up the Contrast
Is your kitchen boring? If yours has an island, or you're planning to add one, consider using tonal contrasts to spark some interest. Maybe you can paint your cabinets. Different shades of greige, and white give a small kitchen a sophisticated upgrade that can look both traditional or modern.
Make Your Entry Stunning
No need for a full-on exterior makeover, but improving your entryway can make a big impact on your home's curb appeal. Swap out your house numbers with modern pieces. Use a dark shade to make the point of entry pop, then place tall planters on each side of your front door. Finish the look by adding symmetrical plantings along the side of the walkway.
Sliding barn doors give you room to spare. From rustic to modern, they create a high impact and give rooms a dramatic and stylish look.

The options are endless when it comes to where you can use these great statement pieces.
From sleek and contemporary to rugged and rustic, the great thing about interior barn doors is that they can adapt to the style and room of your choice. Even a tiny bedroom can use a dose of farmhouse beauty. Not only are these doors space-efficient, they are a great high-end feature by adding so much character to the style of your home.
