Scour Sales and Discount Suppliers

Rummaging through the clearance sections of home centers, tile warehouse outlets, and liquidator shops can yield some great finds, like this $1.79-per-square-foot marble tile that would normally be $8 per square foot. If you can't find enough of these affordable materials to do a whole room, however, one solution is to install stylish yet inexpensive beadboard on the rest of the walls.

Bonus Idea: Installing sheets of plywood beadboard, instead of real tongue and groove, saves both money and installation time.
