Upgrade Your Space With Stickers

These peel-and-stick tiles will add life to any plain kitchen floor, and all for under $50. Use solid colors in a simple alternating design, and it will make it look like you have a whole new floor.

Upgrading your kitchen backsplash is usually a costly endeavor, but stick-on tile decals offer a wallet-friendly alternative that still looks great. These decals are easy to remove, too, so they're ready to go whenever you're ready for a change.

Upgrade Your Hardware

Anything that can be screwed off can be screwed back on, so don't be afraid to replace something old with something new.

Knobs

Swapping out an old knob for a newer one can make all the difference, especially if you decide to get creative with it. Replacing an old knob with something trendy like a leather or rope loop can make a room pop.

Switch Plates

You probably never paid much attention to that bland plastic switch plate, but they're secretly a blank canvas of style. You can paint them with a bold color for contrast, or you can match them with your wallpaper. Treat your switch plate like a tiny easel.

Upgrade Your Lighting

Fun lighting is a great way to liven things up. It can be as simple as changing a bulb, or as decorative as sprucing up your lamps.

Tables, Lamps and Bulbs

Patterned lampshades can add punch to any room, and don't be afraid to pair patterns. Coordinating color and size is a subtle way to wow guests.

Same with paper lamps. These Japanese-inspired lamps give off a soft, flattering glow and are trendy with celebrities, including Julianne Moore.

Don't forget about the light bulb. Incandescent bulbs are warm, inviting and inexpensive. And halogen bulbs are more energy efficient, plus they're the closest approximation of natural daylight.

Layer The Light

Experiment a little and put your lamps on the floor, on desks or on shelves. Varying where you place your lamps, and mixing bulb strengths--is a great way to add a welcoming glow to your home.

Upgrade Your Walls With Fabric

Like stickers, fabric is an awesome temporary tool to spruce your home decor.

If your walls have a bumpy finish, or your simply tired of how they look, you can staple pieces of fabric to the edges to add an impactful feel to a room. It's also a great way to update your kid's' rooms without breaking the bank every time their tastes change.
