This might seem like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how even the most posh-looking rooms can cheapened by needless clutter. Take down any unframed posters, and stash all your remotes and video-game controllers in a drawer or basket. Organize and stack all your magazines, and if they start taking up too much space, toss them into a recycling bin. Dust, mop or vacuum frequently to make sure the room stays clean and orderly.
