When you start to play around with your home decor, you can often feel like something is missing. It’s not always easy to work out what that is. Whether you have one key design theme that you absolutely adore or your taste is more eclectic, you can add a little something extra to your decor overall. Even if you’re going with a rustic vibe, you’d be surprised by the amount of excitement and depth a little luxury touch can add to your home.
Adding luxury elements into your home doesn’t have to be time consuming or expensive. Not everything luxury is either handmade or costly. In fact, you can create an incredible luxury finish for next to nothing and in no time at all. It’s all about working with the space you have, complementing your decor and focusing on the detail. Regardless of the room you’re looking to improve; it can work. So for a little inspiration, take a look at the ways you can luxe up each space in your home.
The Living Space
Sometimes, your living space can be the hardest area of all to update. Not only do you want to ensure that it’s relaxing and cozy, but you often want it to be fresh and inviting too. It’s a hard balance to achieve. When you’re working with a small space, it’s easier to reach, but when you have a larger, open living space, you can often struggle to create something that’s comfortable and impressive. So, instead of wondering how you can do it with accessories, focus on structure and give the windows a facelift. You might even find that glass doors add the luxury vibe you’re looking for.
When it comes to your bedroom, you tend to have a lot more options for achieving a luxury finish. Many of these will involve either decorating or accessories. Even if you have a small, simple square bedroom, you can creating a lasting luxe effect. Firstly, you’re going to want to work on making the room cozy. There’s just something about a comfortable room that makes it feel luxurious. One of the best ways to do that is to use texture. Different textures can have different effects, but you’ll find that velvet, faux fur and leather can add an expensive feel to a simple design.
It’s easy to forget about your entryway. It’s often the place that you rush through on your way up the stairs or bypass on your way out to a meeting. You’ll probably find it cluttered with boots and coats, post and umbrellas, and that’s usually it. Sometimes, when your entryway is forgotten about, it can let down the rest of your home. So, instead, what you need to do is show it some love. You can add in immediate luxury effect to you home by streamlining your entryway, adding in some plants or flowers, and removing clutter.
We all have a dream kitchen. For some, it will be large, extravagant and over the top. For others, it would be warm, cozy, and inviting. Regardless of how your dream kitchen looks, you can add a little slice of luxury by focusing on the details. The backsplash can have a huge effect on the overall look and feel of your kitchen. So, create something unique with tiles for a stunning effect. Or, if you’d rather keep it simple, you can luxe up your taps, or add a sleek boiling water tap to achieve your end goal.
Your bathroom is a little easier to add luxury to than other rooms in the home. Sometimes, all it can take is a few candles, some display towels and the perfect scent and your bathroom transforms itself into a spa. But, when your bathroom needs a little love, you’re going to want to work a little bit harder. Rather than replacing everything, a lick of paint (on both the walls and the tiles) could be all you need. Then, for the perfect finishing touch, unique vanities can make the entire room look more expensive than it actually is.
Your Master Bath
For your master bathroom, you might want to add in some of the same finishing touches that you have to your family bathroom, but with a twist. When it comes to your suite, why not jazz up the taps to create a more elegant effect? You could also work on accessorizing the room a little more with stylish bath mats, a show-stopping mirror and your favorite pamper products on show.
Just like your entryway, you can often disregard your hallway and the effect it can have on your overall decor. A simple and plain hallway might be in keeping with your subtle and elegant style, but it also has the power to add so much more. Of all the hallway ideas you can choose from, a gallery way can have the biggest impact and add a big luxurious bang to your home, as soon as you step into it.
When you design your children’s bedrooms, you can often follow one of two routes. Firstly, you want it to feel very them, so you go with decor that matches their taste, or, secondly, you think about practicality first. Either way, it’s pretty hard to add a luxurious feel. But, the best way to do it is with the lighting. A baby chandelier immediately screams luxury, and it’s far enough away from your children to keep in one piece.
When your home is overflowing with luxury, it’s time to think about the garden. You don’t even have to landscape the entire thing to have a dramatic effect. Sometimes, you just have to focus on one small part. Whether you opt to add a lounging area, complete with chic sofas or decking furniture, or a pretty bonsai garden that is sure to wow, you can ensure your luxurious feel flows out into the garden too.
