BHG jumps on the budget train with these low-cost updates that could actually increase the value of your home. One suggestion--demonstrated above--is to add multi-functional elements, like exposed shelving that serves as storage as well as display.

They also suggest that opting for mid-range cabinetry in the kitchen is the way to go, saving your budget for better-quality appliances, which will steal the show.

If new light fixtures are in the forecast, consider only buying more expensive ones for those readily seen 'public' areas and opting for less-expensive off-the-shelf ones for little seen spaces like hallways and such.

Skip the expensive marble, travertine and slate tile and consider ceramic (or porcelain) tile. It’s easier to work with and it’s MUCH less expensive. To give it some pizzazz, add a few accent like the ones shown below or mosaic.
