Your home doesn’t have to cost a fortune to look like a million bucks. You just need to know some tricks and look to the pros for your home design inspiration.
One mistake many homeowners make when trying to make their homes look more elegant is adding more decor or furnishings. But simple and streamlined always makes a classier statement than clutter.
Use Fluffy White Linens
Nothing says luxury like crisp, clean, inviting linens in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Hang fluffy white towels and fold extras neatly on the shelf. Adorn your bed with a crisp white duvet and pillows.
Add Wine Storage
You don’t have to have an entire wine cellar, but an extra space to display and store your wine is an elegant touch. You can do this by adding a rack in your dining room, or even by building one right into the dead space under your stairs.
Swap Out Your Lighting
One thing most luxury homes have in common is beautiful lighting. Unique fixtures can be pieces of art that accentuate your furnishings and add ambience to the room. Modern chandeliers can add appeal to a grand foyer and recessed lights can highlight your fine art.
Update Your Window Dressing
Elegant drapery fashioned from high-end fabrics adds rich texture and style to any room. Light colors are best for opening up a room. But metallics and other rich fabrics will give the space a sense of sophistication.
Living in the lap of luxury doesn’t have to be expensive. Just look for simple ways to add class to your home that won’t break the bank.
