6 Ways to Make Your Home Look More Expensive
Upgrading your home may feel like a never ending task, but it is satisfying and amazing to decorate your home constantly. No matter if you are looking to fix it up to put it on the market or you simply want to bring fresh updates for yourself you should know what to upgrade and how to make your home look more expensive. Everyone loves luxurious design, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to achieve it. Here is how to do it easily and for little money.
Focus on Window Treatment
Don’t leave your windows bare or with short curtains. Full-length curtains can make any space feel much more custom and luxurious, so treat your windows with some amazing curtains. Another thing you can do is hang your curtain rod a bit higher than usual and this will make your ceilings appear higher which is definitely associated with luxurious interiors. What is more, make sure the curtain panels are wide enough and that they have a good amount of fabric which will create more folds looking more elegant.
Adding moldings to your home is easy and affordable. This is a great way to provide a more expensive look, but you have to think about placing and other factors. Style the moldings to fit the style of your home. Also, the molding will depend on the furniture you have at home. If your home has an older style and build, you can use more ornate and intricate molding. And if you have a more modern build and style of your home, you want a more clean and modern molding to fit the interior.
Provide a More Neutral Base
Having a neutral base on top of which you can build your design is a perfect way to make your home look more expensive. So, if you would like to provide bigger pieces to your design, make sure they are more neutral-toned, including colors like white, off-white, taupe, beige, grey, etc. A lot of luxurious homes use neutral furniture that can only emphasize further accessories. Likewise, you can consider adding wooden and beige pieces of furniture and focus on mid century modern furniture for example, and then add textile for pattern and colors, hang up artwork for pops of color, and so on.
Maximize Space and Light
If your home is smaller or feels stuffy, you should focus on maximizing space. However, if you don’t want to do that by removing furniture and renovating the entire room, there are ways to do this visually and make your home feel expensive and spacious. For example, you can hang a mirror. Mirror will nicely reflect natural light and provide a feeling that the room is bigger and brighter.
You can always opt for a larger mirror or use numerous smaller ones to create a big reflecting surface. Not only will it look amazing on the wall, but you will get more visual space and more light inside your home.
Also, don’t forget to add layers of light to your house. This way, no light will feel stuffy and dim, unless you want it. Besides natural and overhead light, have a few lamps in each room so you can create different atmospheres and levels of light.
Update the Hardware
Even though this one seems obvious, upgrading your hardware can really be effective. The rooms to focus on are the kitchen and bathroom and you can easily make them feel luxurious if you change the cabinet hardware and faucets. So, find new hardware for all the cabinets and maybe think of a different metal than the old one. Also, faucets can look amazing if you combine them with the hardware, and simply replacing faucets and showerheads can provide a fresh feel to the room.
Additionally, you can consider changing door knobs, light plates, plug covers, furniture knobs, and curtain rods. All these are small details but they can truly make a difference.
This one's a classic and house plants will perfectly fill out the empty space you have and bring life and elegance to your home. When choosing plants for specific nooks, make sure they are big enough so they can properly fill out the space they are in. A large plant can be a statement if you choose a decorative pot, make sure everything is scaled to provide balance.
Everyone wants a cozy home that will feel luxurious and calm. These are the tips to easily transform your home into a high-end one and you certainly don’t have to spend a fortune.
