Turning your humble home into a luxurious looking place might sound like a tricky decorating task, but it doesn’t have to be. There are so many different things you can do to make your home feel more lavish, and you certainly don’t need to spend a ton of money to do it. Here are some ideas to help you!
Choose An Luxurious Color Scheme
Your color scheme is going to make the world of difference to your home. There are so many ways you can decide on the right color scheme for your home. If you feel it’s too small, you’ll need to turn it into a palace by choosing lighter colors to make the space look more open. If you feel as if you have space to spare, you could include darker, more indulgent colors like purple. Use a color wheel to help you select colors that suit one another perfectly.
Change Your Window Treatments
Your custom window treatments are going to make a massive difference to how amazing your home looks, too. Without custom window treatments your home can look unfinished. Did you know that in Connecticut, All About Interiors has a workroom that can make window treatments to suit your needs and style? We offer many lines of fabric to choose from and can add any trim to give it dimension and detail. If you want curtains, then long, thick curtains hung close to the ceiling, tend to look more luxurious, but it depends on the effect and functionality you want them to have on your home. Blinds and shutters can also potentially be incorporated to create a modern feel and help you to keep your home spacious and less fussy.
Make It Look More Spacious
How else can you make your home look more spacious? We’ve discussed color and letting light in, but there are other decorating ways. By using a few optical illusions, you can make your home look more spacious. Vertical stripes on the wall are perfect for this. You could also paint the ceiling the same color as the walls. Pulling your furniture away from the wall, rather than pushing it against the wall will have the effect you’re after. Pushing it against the wall can make a room look more cramped, despite what many think!
Add Silver and Gold Elements
Silver and gold elements can add a luxurious feel. However, you don’t need to invest in super expensive accessories. You could spray paint some of your old accessories!
Choose Your Furniture Carefully
You want your furniture to look great and last a long time. Usually, you’ll want this without breaking the bank. Make sure you read reviews and only ever buy from reputable furniture companies. In order to ensure you are purchasing the right pieces for your space, consult a professional interior designer.
Layer, Layer, And Layer Some More
Layering up your pieces will make your home appear cozier, and far more lavish. You can layer pillows, rugs, and throws to create a gorgeous look. This also adds more texture, which instantly makes a home look more interesting and luxurious.
