Live Like a Celebrity With These Budget Baller Home Features

The one thing most of their homes have in common: incredible features you have to be incredibly rich to pay for. But you can get some baller features without spending big bucks. Heres how.

Gourmet kitchen

Get a look that seems like it came right out of the pages of a shelter magazine without busting your budget. The trick: a little ingenuity and a little elbow grease. For a couple hundred bucks, you can paint those dingy, dated cabinets. No one who has ever done this will tell you its not an easy job, but the results are well worth the effort. Add another couple hundred for sparkly pulls and knobs, and maybe a few pendants over the island or peninsula to totally transform your kitchen.nbsp;

Watch a tutorial and you can easily learn how to do your own backsplash. Or, for a super quick and easy transformation, try peel-and-stick backsplash tiles, which come in tons of options now and looks like the real deal.

Custom basketball court

Michael Jordans indoor basketball court at his Chicago home listed for sale for just under 15 million, if youre interested, is as fancy as you would expect from one of the all-time NBA legends. In addition to a regulation size court, its got motorized backboards and the Jumpman logo at center court. And its done up in Chicago Bulls colors. Of course.

You dont need a hangar-sized structure to create a baller basketball court. Take it outside and you have tons of options. Companies like Versacourt offer pre-designed kits of snap-together tiles for small courts, half courts, and full courts. The tiles are durable and shock-absorbing, and the install is DIY, saving on costs. Also, they can be placed over any flat surface.nbsp;

Versacourt estimates that the cost for a typical multi-sport game court will run aboutnbsp;3.50nbsp;tonbsp;4.50nbsp;per square foot for a fully designed, painted and prepared for easy assembly. This may run higher if additional game lines or custom logos are specified.

Pre-designed kits come in a variety of colors, including Bulls red and black and Lakers purple and gold, and they also offer custom options. You can also get a custom look without the cost of kits with a stencil. For under 200, you can turn a patch of concrete into a championship spot.nbsp;

Wine storage

Were not all blessed to have the square footage for Oprah Winfreys wine cave. Her Telluride, CO home, which she purchased for 14 million in 2015, includes a wine cellar built to mimic a mining tunnel, said Architectural Digest. The cellar spans 56 feet and holds up to 1,600 bottles of vino; it even features piped-in sounds of creaking wood and dripping water to add to the cave-like atmosphere. An antique ore cart lends further authenticity to the space.

Heres a significantly less expensive option: Turn a closet into a wine room all by yourself. Mind you, this does not look like an easy process, but the whole thing only ran about 500.

Backyard putting green

The 5.8 million Franklin, TN home that Miley Cyrus purchased in 2017 has a slew of dazzling features, including a mini-golf course.nbsp;Putting greens of various sizes and shapes are a popular feature among celebs and execs and golf-lovers, but they can get pricey. You can go the super custom route, but if youre not Tiger Woods, a more mid-range version may do.

A Tour Greens synthetic putting green generally costs between 15 and 40 per square foot which includes design, materials and installation, said Tour Greens. These costs, however can vary significantly based on the size of the green, features and other site-specific factors. In general, the larger the space, the lower the per-square-foot price.

You can also get one of these portable putting greens for under 1,400, or do it yourself to get the exact specs and look you want.nbsp;
