Home upgrades can quickly get out of hand and start costing you serious money, ask any interior designer and they'll tell you that, but what if you just want to add something small and inexpensive, but still make a big impact on your interior? Well, we've found a few fantastic ideas that won't break the bank but will add some serious style points to every room, so read on to discover the secret to low-cost home upgrading!

1. Embrace a neutral color scheme.

If you've got a weekend free, why not think about painting your walls a brighter, more neutral color? You'll be shocked at what an impact white walls make! Your home will look much more brighter and nicer—without paying a lot for it :)

2. Grab some indoor plants.

Indoor plants don't just inject some greenery into your home, they also purify your air and have a huge impact on the vibe and health of the household as a whole! Now that's a value-added bonus!

3. Add a bathroom cabinet.

If your bathroom gets a little cluttered now and then, investing in a bathroom cabinet will be a great idea that soon pays off. Suddenly, your room will look more modern and minimalist, all because of extra storage.

4. Choose a statement mirror.

If your bedroom needs a little more pizazz, how about hanging a really amazing statement mirror on one of the walls? Not only will it look great and serve a purpose, it will also make your room feel much larger!
