Affordable Ways to Give the Feel of Luxury to Your Home

29 August 2018

We all want our home decor to mirror the fantastic grand homes we see in magazines and on television. Of course, in most occasions this is not financially achievable. So we have come up with some affordable ways you can add a bit of luxury into your home without draining out your bank account. So let’s see what these are.

Choose the right colors

When redecorating any living space, painting is a must. But with the right choice of paint you can create a truly luxurious feel. Start by deciding on an accent wall that will create the ideal backdrop for your entire design. Build up the rest based on that nuance. You can select just certain details, such as pillows, curtains or some of the shelving decorations. That will wrap up your entire room based on a single colour shade. It is will make the whole design seem a lot more luxurious and you won’t even have to break bank.

The one perfect piece

If you choose the ideal piece of furniture or decor to elevate the whole living space you could make your home look a lot more expensive than it actually is. One option could be a carefully placed mirror that can serve as a wall centerpiece. Put opposite of a window it can provide additional lighting in the room and make it seem brighter, while a subtle metallic frame can make it a lot more stylish. Another option is getting some quality floor rugs and placing them in various rooms around your home. A well chosen rug can tie a whole room together, making it seem quite luxurious, and you won’t even have to empty out your wallet to do so.

Go minimal

Minimalism is a great way to make the space seem expensive. This might sound contradictory, but actually going minimalistic will allow you to showcase the few great pieces that you have without the need to invest in additional expensive ones. Additionally, minimalism allows you get just the things you need without having to explain why you have just two chairs instead of six or a simple ceiling fixture instead of a chandelier. Having a minimalistic style with a few eye-catching pieces will make you home seem a lot more elegant and luxurious with minimal amount of funds spent.


Decide on the direction you want to go in

Having a clear vision of what type of decor you want in your home can help you get the look you want without you buying a lot of different things and then trying to make it all fit. So deciding on the type of decor will allow you to choose those pieces that are bound to introduce luxury into your home without overcrowding it and making it seem stuffy. Having all the expensive furniture and decor pieces and no clear interior design concept can really diminish the value of your living space.

Choose a couple of rooms

You don’t have to transform your entire space. Just choose a couple of rooms in which you want to elevate the design to a more luxurious level. That option can save you both time and money and still introduce luxury into your home. Usually the best options are living room and bathroom, as those are the two spaces most guests tend to frequent. When it come to the living room, as we have previously mentioned, investing in a few key pieces will do the trick. On the other hand, your can do only with a great looking tub and some stunning metallic fixtures in your bathroom. Opting for a freestanding bath along with brass taps will introduce a whole other level of luxury onto your home, and you won’t have to give an arm and a leg to get it.

There you have it, some easy and affordable ways to introduce luxury into your home. All that is left is to sit back and enjoy the new feel of your perfect living space.
