No matter how luxurious your home is or is not right now and no matter how big or small your budget may be, there are lots of things you can do to up your home decor game as make your property look and feel even more luxurious right now, including the following:
Create a unique feature wall
The most luxurious homes always have a focal point. If you want to make your home look more luxurious on a budget, a good way to do that is by creating a bespoke feature wall that is completely unique to your home. There are a number of ways to do this from designing and printing your own wallpaper using paint and masking tape to create a unique geometric pattern on your chosen wall. As long as you take your time and choose something that is unique and meaningful to you, it is sure to look great.
Let there be natural light
Have you ever noticed that all of those luxurious properties that you see in home and garden magazines or on Instagram are always light, bright, and airy? A good way, then, to make your home look and feel more luxurious is to maximize the amount of natural light it gets. You could do this by installing more Renewal by Andersen windows if you can afford the upgrade because more windows will make for more light, of course, but you could also do it by removing any heavy window treatments and replacing them with lighter versions that let more light in, or by simply keeping the windows clean.
You can also add more lighting sources like lamps and candles into the space so that when it’s not particularly bright out you can still make the place as bright and inviting as possible.
Invest in window treatments
Of course, window treatments can help to make your home look and feel more luxurious too because bare windows can often look a bit unfinished. Whether you choose wooden shutters, heavily lined curtains, or fabric blinds, aim to pick window treatments that have been made to a high standard and which match the existing decor if you want them to have the desired effect.
Get rid of clutter
Luxurious homes do not have clutter. They are full of space, and any items that are present in there have been carefully curated to suit the style of the home and make the people living there happy. So, if you have a lot of things, and you do not need them and they are not bringing you much joy, donate what you can and throw the rest away. Not only will your home look more sophisticated, but it will also be much easier to keep clean and tidy and it doesn’t get more luxurious than that.
Buy a piece of art
Art makes any home look and feel more sophisticated, and it doesn’t actually have to cost a lot. Research local artists, find one that you love and commission an affordable piece. Hang it in a prominent place in your home where you and your guests can see it regularly and it will lift your spirits while also elevating your decor and you can’t say fairer than that!
Harness the power of plants
Plants and flowers are extremely luxurious. Not only do they look beautiful, but they also smell great and help to clean the air too. Houseplants like orchids and peace lilies help to make your home feel a bit more exotic when they are in good condition, so try to have at least one plant in every room and do your best to take good care of it if you want your home to feel more indulgent.
Layer your rugs
Rugs are a great addition to any home, especially if you have tiled or wooden floors, which can look a bit bare and get pretty cold in the winter. One trick you can use to make your home feel more luxurious with rugs is to buy two or more rugs in different sizes. You can then layer them up to create a unique, decadent look in pretty much any room you choose.
Change door furniture
One really simple swap you can make to instantly elevate your home is to remove old door handles and knobs, and that includes kitchen cabinet knobs, and replace them with the more stylish version in crystal, brass, silver, or even gold. It might not seem like such a little thing could make so much difference, but it shows an attention to detail that you only often find in high-end properties, and it’s a lot cheaper than changing whole doors and cabinets.
Repaint kitchen cabinets
On the subject of kitchen cabinets, an easy way to make new ones look and feel more luxurious is to sand them down, apply a layer of primer, and then repaint them in the color of your choice, dark colors like black, aubergine, and red tend to look very classy, especially if they are glossy, but feel free to choose a color that does it for you.
If your countertops are looking a bit shabby, you can also have them resurfaced for a fraction of the cost of having them replaced. This will get them looking as good as new again, and when they look shiny and new, you will feel much happier cooking in there.
Jet Wash your home’s exterior
Of course, it is not just your home’s interior that can make your home look and feel more luxurious. An easy way to make the outside of your property look better is to jetwash the driveway, and the walls of your home to remove any dirt and staining that has built up. Once you have done that, mow the lawn and plant a few flowers and your property’s curb appeal will be instantly transformed in the space of a few hours.
Add Something Unique
When it comes to creating a luxurious home, one common aspect all luxury homes offer is offering something unique. This could include Amish furniture, artwork, or even just unusual wallpaper on the wall itself. Luxury homes know to not be bland or boring but instead, embrace uniqueness as one of their contributors to the luxury of the home itself. So, whether it’s large or small, make sure you add something unique and totally different to your home.
It’s always possible to add a little more luxury into your home, so what are you waiting for?
