There are a few simple ways to give the appearance of a higher ceiling in your home. Try painting stripes on the wall or you can just add a taller floor lamp. This creates an optical illusion that adds height to a room. It makes your eyes focus on following lines and makes the room look higher.

Shoe Boxes

Empty shoe boxes can be an inexpensive way to increase the storage space in any room. Use scraps of attractive fabric or wallpaper to cover the shoe boxes. This project adds visual interest as well as much-needed storage.

Stained baseboards offer an excellent alternative to traditionally painted ones. This gives your baseboards that look of real wood that blends very well with a modern or classic home. Stained baseboards also do a better job of hiding scuffs and scratches. Wood stain comes in lots of different colors to coordinate with any color scheme.

Drain Snake

To save cash, buy a drain snake. It will save you money on expensive and toxic drain cleaners. These tools aren’t for the totally uninitiated, so it may be wise to have a professional show you its proper usage once prior to using. Drains and pipes come in different sizes, so buy the right drain snake for the job to minimize damage occurring.

When you can afford to, stick to natural supplies. The benefits of authentic ceramic, stone or wood are well worth the extra cost. They are also stronger and more attractive. More expensive natural materials can be cheaper in the long run because synthetics will have to be replaced more frequently.
