A short list of software

CompizConfig Settings Manager has lots of appearance options, if this is what you are looking for. You can find it in Ubuntu Software center.

For more technical tweaking I prefer Ubuntu Tweak. Get it from here:

Also, don't forget about the System Settings, already found on your machine: just type Settings in the Dash search bar to find it.
