How are you customizing your house on a budget?
I am new to GardenWeb. We are at the blocking stage on our first build. We have two gorgeous acres and 2700 sf, but due to budget we are limited on upgrades.
I would like to know what smaller, less expensive things you are doing to make your home look more custom/high end for less? For example, instead of the builder grade mirrors, we are bringing in our own framed mirrors found at a vintage shop. We deleted the ceramic toilet paper holders and towel bars; the builder will install bronze ones we bring in. In the bathrooms (and kitchen), we deleted the built in backsplash attached to the countertops, and we will be doing custom stone tile backsplashes after we close.
I am very interested in hearing what other people are are doing that are low on the cost factor but high on the "wow" scale. :-)
