It’s always great to have a little more luxury in life, but your bank account wouldn’t always agree with you. That doesn’t mean, however, that you still can’t make your home feel more luxurious without breaking the bank. It all comes down to make the right decisions and spending that little bit more on better quality items, which will last longer, and therefore save you money in the long run.
1. Create a Bedroom Haven
The perfect bedroom should be the ultimate retreat, away from distractions, and equipped with the best means to let you feel more relaxed and get the right amount of sleep. The bedroom is one place you can afford to have a little luxury, as the payback makes it completely worth it.
Choosing the right bedroom furniture can have a profound effect on how luxurious your bedroom becomes. This is especially important when it comes to your bed and the mattress itself. Comfort is often associated with luxury, so you’ll want your bed to be as comfortable as possible. Invest more in a higher quality mattress suited to your needs.
2. Invest in Higher Quality Fabrics
Luxury is commonly about the senses, namely how an item looks and feels to you. The higher quality it seems, the better. Fabrics and textiles in your home can make all the difference when aiming for a luxurious feel. Thinner and easily-worn fabrics will have a counter-effect, whereas thicker, warmer and more durable fabrics will bring an element of luxury to any home, whether it’s a thicker, softer carpet under your feet, elegant curtains or attractive throws strewn over couches and beds.
3. It’s All About the Lighting
A simple change to lighting and a room’s lighting main overhead feature can transform any space, without having to do a lot of work. A more relaxed and luxury feel can be achieved by warmer and softer lighting as opposed to bright, modernized bulbs. Replacing outdated or plain light fixtures with more elegant ones, such as crystal-effect chandeliers or fixtures with a little sparkle, can make a whole load of difference.
4. Get Rid of Clutter
If you have piles of stuff everywhere, with belongings and ornaments collecting dust, or items piled up in corners of rooms because you haven’t yet got around to sorting it yet, your home is never going to feel like it’s the pinnacle of luxury. Luxury means tidiness, cleanliness, and a complete state of comfort, and you aren’t going to achieve that with a messy home.
5. Replace Window Blinds with Elegant Curtains
Curtains can offer a sophisticated texture and warmth to your home, and with a stylish pattern printed on high-quality and lavish fabric, the right pair of curtains will immediately add a touch of luxury to any room. Deeper, richer colors are better for a saturated feel, but lighter curtains can still work, and for extra luxury points, try layering and draping curtains in a different way, such as using fabric pelmets and thick tie backs.
