Unfortunately, we can’t all afford to live in a massive luxurious house. However, there are plenty of ways to revamp your place to make it feel much more luxurious – without breaking the bank. In fact, it’s simpler than you’d think. At the end of the day, it all comes down to decor and interior design. The way you set up each room matters. It can make the difference between having a stunning room to seeing a mess every day and feeling like you aren’t utilizing it to its full potential. To achieve this goal, we’re going to talk about some details you can play around with in order to give off the impression that your home is more luxurious than it actually is. Let’s start, shall we?
Start With The Paint
One of the very first things you tend to notice when walking into a room is the paint color on the walls. It truly makes a huge difference to the entire room. Not to mention, it’s always a good idea to begin designing a room when it’s empty – a blank slate. So, when you’re thinking of redoing a room, the first thing to do is decide what paint you want. Do you want plain white so you can play around more with the furniture and accessories? Would you want an accent wall to make a statement and add a pop of color? You decide. For a luxurious look, we recommend you either pick something bold and dramatic or soft and neutral.
It might seem like too small of a detail, but the right pillows can instantly make a room look more put together and elegant. For the ultimate fancy look, choose deep hues that match the rest of the decor and fabrics like velvet. Instead of choosing pillows that are the standard size (18-inch), go for larger pillows (22-inch) to create a plush look that will be inviting as well as elegant. Don’t skimp on the inserts, though. Down-filled pillows are the best option.
The Right Curtains
Rooms that have windows with no curtains tend to look unfinished, if not cheap. Oftentimes, luxurious houses have high ceilings and plenty of natural light. To mimic that and create a similar look for your house, what you need to do is get the right curtains for your room. Hang the curtains as high and as close to the ceiling as possible to bring the eye upward. This will create the illusion of a higher ceiling. To get as much light as possible, choose sheer curtains. They’ll also add some softness to the room.
One thing that can seriously transform a room is its cleanliness. A cluttered room won’t be able to look expensive or luxurious no matter what. Before anything else, it’s crucial to go through your things and declutter. Organize everything so all your possessions have a place to be put away – out of sight. The cleaner a space, the more elegant it looks.
Add A Rug
A great way to ground all your furniture and tie a room together is with a rug. Of course, it will also make the room look more inviting and plus, creating that luxurious feel we’re after. The larger the rug, the more luxurious it will look. Even if you already have carpeting, adding a rug on top will help define a space and make it look more put-together.
Finally, a great way to complete a room is with the right accessories. Whether it’s a few small things to style a bookshelf or a coffee table, these small items can truly up the elegance scale in a room. For instance, adding a mirror to any room is the perfect way to make it look fancier as well as spacious. However, one thing to keep in mind when shopping for accessories is to keep it simple. Less is more.
