There are many ways to bring a touch of luxury into your home even if you don’t plan on remodeling every room. Here are some simple ways to class it up.
Keep it Simple
Modern luxury often focuses on minimalism and open spaces. Less clutter is the perfect place to start when wanting to give your home a touch of luxury. To take this a step further, consider open cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Choose Natural Materials
Nothing says luxury like natural materials like real wood, stone, leather, and more. Try replacing countertops in the kitchen and bath with granite or another beautiful stone. Replace fireplace facing with natural stone.
Use Throw Pillows as Focal Points
Throw pillows are just functional, they can be the focal point of any room. Make them stand out with unique textures, bright colors, interesting patterns. Remember the pillow on the bed, the living room furniture, and even in your office or den.
Update Your Light Fixtures
Fixtures bring light into your room which makes them a focal point. Use modern styles or natural materials to make them stand out.
Install Large Windows for Natural Light
There’s something to be said for natural light. It boosts your mood and improves your immune response. It’s also a common feature in luxury homes. Replacing windows with larger ones might be harder on the budget, but it’s worth it.
Add Height to the Room with Window Treatments
Dress up your windows with the right window treatments and you can make or break your luxurious look and feel. The first goal of any window treatment is to add height. Floor to ceiling curtains or drapes can do that.
Bring Warmth with a Rug
It’s not all about height. You also want your space to feel warm and inviting. The right rug can do that, especially if it’s placed on a floor of natural materials like wood or stone. There are many options when choosing an area rug for your room. Go subtle or make it stand out with color and patterns.
Add Warmth with A Fireplace or Wood Burning Stove
A rug can only add so much warmth. To bring physical warmth as well as create a beautiful and luxurious focal point to any room, a fireplace or a wood burning stove can work wonders. Wood burning stoves are becoming a popular choice in both new homes and updated ones.
Use Monochrome Textures
A classy look for any room involves monochrome elements like furniture, walls, rugs, and curtains. But, they use a mix of textures that make each stand out. You’ll still need a pop of color somewhere, such as your flooring or an accent wall.
Add Contrast with Paint
Make your space unique by using bold and contrasting colors. The most common colors are black and white, gray and white, or gray and black, but you can use any that match your style.
Install Smart Home Conveniences
Smart home devices might not add to a luxury look in your home but it sure does add a luxury feel. These conveniences can make you feel like your home is truly yours and you can customize it as you wish. What’s more luxurious than that?
No matter how you decide to update the interior of your home for a more luxurious look, it’s important to focus on changes that you like. Your home is your paradise and should reflect your interests and tastes.
