Hi experts

I want to use sharepoint server 2013 for my office's intranet.
The important thing is how much I can make a huge difference to appearances of portal site cosmetically.
Because our intranet portal site should be attractive to our staff by enhancing physical design appearance.

I know we can customise the portal site of sharepoint to a certain extent by using default functions of sharepoint, clicking some parts indicated like followings.

I don't understand how much beautiful design I can get from these discriptions.
To make change of design appearances for eye appeal, is it enough for basic functions provided by sharepoint 2013? or Should I ask sharepoint expert ?
If I asked sharepoint expert to customise the design for the appearances, what could they do and how easily could they do at low cost? ( let's say, one day work)
and What kind of skills are required for this ?

I would appreciate if you could provide me with any idea.
