Make Your Home Feel Expensive
1- Switch To High-End Flooring
This option may be more expensive than the rest, but updating some of the floorings in your home can make luxury areas. Bathrooms or kitchens are smaller areas that could save you money by installing new flooring in just one location.
2- Add New Hardware
Updating the hardware on your cupboards, drawers, and doors can help make your home feel expensive. Gold hardware or ones with intricate carvings can easily make the home look more expensive. Coordinate or contrast hardware to add a more unique look.
Hardware may look expensive, but it is an easy way to stay on budget while making your space look more modern. Many hardware options are relatively inexpensive and may have discounts for buying in bulk.
3- Maximize Natural Light
Maximizing natural light in your home can make it feel larger, which is a common aspect of expensive homes. Ditch the curtains and let light in the windows, hang a mirror, or include more glass that can reflect light throughout the space.
4- Keep Things Tidy
One of the easiest ways to make your house look put together is to keep clutter to a minimum. Cleaning and picking up random things around your home makes it feel more expensive. Keeping your home clean, not only makes it look more professional, it can help you feel more at ease in your space. A clean home also helps protect you from illness or constantly tripping over objects.
5- Add Big Art
Creating a gallery wall or adding large artwork is another way to make your home feel expensive. Large art pieces may be expensive, but with some bargain hunting, you can find art retro art pieces to fill your home that won’t break the bank. Large art creates the illusion that it cost more than it actually did.
Choosing one statement piece can also make your space feel more professional and save you from buying multiple pieces. Checking at flea markets can help you find an art piece as well as a fancy frame to highlight the art.
6- Use Scent To Your Advantage
Using diffusers, candles, or potpourri can help people feel certain emotions while in your home. Smells can make people feel cozier and at home when they visit your home. Cleaning and tidying can also help your home smell better and help you pick the exact scent that visitors smell when they come to your home.
Using scents that line up with the seasons or light earthy scents is the best option. Don’t combine too many smells or you risk giving everyone headaches.
7- Neutrals And Gold Accents
Creating a cohesive interior design can be accomplished by using neutrals as your base. Neutrals can make your home seem more professional and clean. Because neutrals show dirt and grime easily when they are maintained and truly clean they can improve the atmosphere of your home.
Accenting with gold can give an element of luxury because gold is often associated with wealth. Gold accents can be used in hardware, frames, tables, pillows, pots, and other decorative items. If you do not have the budget to buy more decor, you can spray paint items easily to add some glamour.
