Homeowners used to spend a huge amount of money remodeling their kitchens and baths. They forked out thousands of dollars updating their living rooms and family rooms. Of course, there used to be a higher return for those beautiful remodels on the resale market. However, that type of thinking is gone with the wind in today's housing market. Unless you plan on living in your home for ten or more years, you may want to reconsider your next project and take a look at some other avenues that you can take to achieve your goals without breaking the bank. Mixing and matching high-end and low-end materials is one of them.
The best place to start is by looking through magazines and finding the look you want. You can get ideas for innovations and trends in the luxury end of the market yet shop for similar materials in the lower end that will give your room the same type of look.
