Why are your walls builder beige or some other boring neutral color? 

I can understand using a neutral paint color in rooms where repainting would require more than two days and/or a very tall ladder, but there is no excuse for being boring and generic in smaller rooms or on an accent wall. 

Please don't be scared of painting - it is the least expensive yet most dramatic thing you can do to a room. 

Each room in your home needs at least one focal point and using an interesting paint color can give you the focal point that you need to make your room more interesting and one of a kind.

Since the majority of my clients live in the suburbs in a sea of builder grade homes, I have seen the exact same bathroom over and over again. 

White cabinets, white cultured marble countertops, a huge mirror that covers the entire wall, and the most basic light fixture over each sink. 

If everything in your bathroom functions properly and is in good repair, then you do not have to do a full remodel in order to get an upgraded look. 

Here are a few tips to spruce up your bathroom without breaking the bank.

Let me guess - most of the rooms in your home have one light fixture in the center of the ceiling and no other source of light in the room. 

That one fixture provides the bare minimum when it comes to lighting your room.  

In order to have good lighting in your home, you should have more than one light fixture. 

Having multiple sources of light not only looks better, but it allows you to customize the lighting per the time of day and activity in the room. 

Use at least two of the following types of lighting in each room to have proper lighting in your home.
