It may seem like a daunting and expensive endeavor to try and bring a luxury look and feel into your home. You start to think of the most upscale furniture and opulent décor in your home. You think you’ll have to go through it all, from reading a book on different interior décor styles to a guide to choosing sideboards. However, it does not have to be that difficult. You can make a few simple changes and have a luxurious looking and feeling home without having to break the bank for it. Here are a few ways you can do it like a pro.
Simplify Your Home by Eliminating Clutter
The very first thing you have to do to bring that luxurious feel into your home is to eliminate clutter. This is counterintuitive because most people find it very easy to go overboard with accessories. Instead, try to be more purposeful with how you decorate your home.
To begin with, get rid of all the extra furniture you don’t need. If it doesn’t serve any meaningful function, then you’ve got to let it go. Once you’re done, take care of the accessories. Accent pieces should come in threes: three pillows on your couch, three colored glass bottles on your entryway table and so on. When you’re done with the rearranging, you can get a sense of the feel of the room, tweaking what needs to be tweaked to make everything feel a little more balanced.
Draperies Add Style
Your windows have a lot of power to make your home feel luxurious. All you have to do is give them an update. Rather than the normal treatments you use, you can go for some high-end textures and fabrics. That’s all you have to do ― take out all that cheap-looking material and replace it with stylish drapery.
When you have the wrong window décor, it can make the room feel dreary and dark. Instead, go for some stylish curtain rods and some lighter shades on the curtains. For high ceilings, get long drapes. You can even hire a seamstress to give you personalized style.
There are few things as effective at making a home feel truly luxurious like lavish lighting. Start by having some large and beautiful overhead pieces in your living room, dining room and, if you have the space, in the kitchen as well. These can take your rooms to the next level and make a statement in your home. Then, you can get some beautiful decorative table lamps to bring in some beautiful touches to your space.
There are areas where you will want to add accent lights ― the more unexpected, the better. You could put a chandelier in the master bedroom and pendant lights in the kitchen. They have a way of transforming an entire room.
Lighting goes well beyond just lighting up a room and adding color. It also contributes to the mood of the space. Try to avoid harsh fluorescents whenever you can. Go for soft lights, and you will notice the ambience of your space changes immediately.
