We all have ideas about what our dream home would look like, but time and money tend to prevent us from achieving that dream. There are ways to make your home feel as luxurious as you desire though, with a few edits and alterations here and there you would be surprised at how much you can do for not all that much money.
Here are 6 useful ways to make your home interior fancier and more luxurious.
1. Purchase A Humidor
If you are unfamiliar with what a humidor is, it is a humidity-controlled box that is used to store cigars, cigarettes, and pipe tobacco. There are many different types of humidors and each of them looks elegant, sophisticated, and incredibly fancy. Adding one of these to your home will act to enhance your home’s interior design. Whether you enjoy the odd cigar or you are a frequent smoker of cigars, then you should consider placing a humidor in your home. What’s more, most of the time these are portable so you can change where you keep them depending on how you feel. So the next time you have important guests coming over, you can place it in the living room just to make sure that they see it.
2. Change The Lighting In Your Home
Lighting can make a huge difference to how a room presents itself. If you want your home to feel cozy and cute, then opting for warmer tones of lighting can help to achieve that atmosphere. Alternatively, if you want your home to feel more modern and sleek, cooler tones are best for creating that feeling. Your lighting does not have to be the same throughout the house and attempting to do that is quite an unrealistic feat. Focus on each room and the purpose of each room. For example, if you want your kitchen to feel more sleek and sophisticated, consider adding LED spotlights under cabinets to help light up countertops and the room in general. Whereas if you were focusing on the bedroom then consider opting for a hanging piece in the center of the room. This will make the room feel like it is straight out of a mansion.
3. Invest In Art
Another way to make your home feel more fancy and luxurious is to invest in art. It does not have to be super expensive art for it to make your home feel special. In fact, you can pretty much purchase any art you like and so long as you hang it up in a presentable and stylish manner, it is going to make your home look ten times better. Try not to overcrowd your walls with art as this can take away from the beauty of each piece. Remember, sometimes less is more.
4. Create A Feature Wall
For those who are not familiar with the term feature wall, this is when you have one wall painted a different color to the other 3 walls in the room. This creates a statement and makes your room appear as though it has been designed by a professional. If you want to take this further, you could use stick-on wallpaper so that you can pick from a variety of designs. For instance, a striking geometrical pattern as your feature wall will really make the place feel fancier.
5. Use Plants To Add Atmosphere
Another affordable way to make your home feel more luxurious is to add plants. The key is not to go over the top and add a bunch of plants in each room and hope for the best. Instead, consider adding a hanging plant by a mirror or a couple of cute cacti by a window sill.
6. Embrace Minimalism
As mentioned earlier, the rule of thumb is that less is more, so while it can be tempting to add lots of items, furniture, and plants all over the place, this will take away from the luxurious feel. Consider opting for a few high-quality pieces to help elevate your home, as opposed to lots of lower-quality pieces. Do not be afraid of empty space in the room or on the walls, this space serves a purpose as it allows the eye to be drawn to what really matters.
You do not have to be a professional interior designer to create the home of your dreams. Follow these 6 tips and your home will be fancier and more luxurious than ever. Any guests you have over are guaranteed to gawk at the changes you have made to your home.
