6 Ways to Make Your Home Look Luxurious

It is true that high-end and trendy pieces of furniture tend to be expensive. However, many furniture shops in Manila offer luxurious looking yet affordable furniture pieces. If you’re looking to revamp your home, here are 6 ways to make your home look luxurious without emptying your bank account.

Invest in Classic Pieces and Colors

When it comes to large furniture items, the safest option is to choose neutral colored ones. This applies to walls, couches, large cabinets, beds, and anything else that would be difficult and expensive to switch every now and then. The advantage of using neutral colors like beige, gray, or white is that these match with anything and never get tiring to look at, particularly for walls. Neutral colored walls can easily be decorated with accents of bright color. Another option would be to paint walls using deep, bold colors with contrasts of shiny colors to give your room a glamorous vibe.

Moreover, buy furniture pieces with classic styles from furniture shops in Manila. Classics like the Victorian style and even some contemporary styles like neo-minimalism rarely go out of style. Although authentic classic pieces are often costly, investing on these is worth it because they will surely last for several years.

Add touches of High-End and Metallic Materials

One tip for adding accents to a room is to use high-end materials like marble, leather, glass, solid wood, and more. Adding small amounts of these throughout a room is more affordable than buying pieces made entirely out of these materials. But at the same time, this tactic remains effective in making a room look more upscale and expensive. In addition, touches of metal, whether it be in the dishware as accents of lamp fixtures, add to the lavish feel of a room. By paying attention to these small details, it becomes more evident that a lot of thought went into the design of your home which in itself makes it seem luxurious.

Decorate with Large Pieces of Art

Another way to make a room look more expensive is to fill empty wall spaces with large pieces of art. Having one large accent piece rather than several small ones will keep your room looking clean and elegant. However, you don’t necessarily need to spend on a painting worth thousands. Instead, you can save money by printing a large picture of art that you admire and framing it. This is an incredibly affordable trick to making your home look fancy without actually spending.

Create a Bookshelf Wall

Another trick is to make your furniture look custom made. One way you can do this is to create a bookshelf that spans an entire wall, extending from the ceiling to the floor or from one wall to another. Investing in a bookshelf wall would make your study or office look more lavish than regular shelves that stand alone. This will also give you more storage space and make your room seem larger than it actually is. While it would be helpful to have a professional create your built-in bookshelf, it is also possible for you to do this project yourself.

Furthermore, you can opt to place decorative objects between your books on your shelves to avoid making your room like a stuffy and boring library. You can place anything from framed pictures to random souvenirs and memorabilia in order to break up the lines created by books.

Create Illusions of Space

Spacious rooms and high ceilings are often associated with grand and upscale homes. One simple way to achieve an illusion of more space is to strategically place mirrors around the room. Reflections from mirrors will trick your eyes and the eyes of your guests into thinking the room is twice its actual size. This is also a great way of making a small bathroom seem larger. Other ways to create the illusion of space include using see-through furniture like glass tables, taking advantage of natural light when placing windows, adding drapes that are the same color as your wall, and more. Another tip is to always keep your rooms clean and free of clutter since this goes a long way in adding space and creating a comfortable home.

Flowers and Greenery

Decorating your home with flowers and greenery is another easy and affordable way of making a room as elegant and aesthetically pleasing as rooms in luxurious hotels. Having even just a few vases with fresh flowers or pots with low maintenance house plants will bring a lovely touch of nature to your home. Additionally, aromatic flowers are also great for making your home smell fresh all the time.

Key Takeaway

Even if you’re on a budget, it is still possible for you to create your dream house. Investing in classic, good quality furniture and decor is always worth it in the long run. At the same time, you can save money on art and accent pieces when decorating your home.

  • Great article!
    Most people have the means to buy the same expensive furniture, so it’s difficult to create a unique interior decoration this way.
    Personally I think the easiest way to create a luxurious and unique home decoration is obtained by buying original, unique art. Excellent unique art is sculptures, ceramic or paintings.

  • Another great article Praveen. I totally agree that mirrors can really help a small space feel bigger. There are so many great mirrors that feel sleek and modern nowadays that they feel like pieces of minimalistic artwork.

  • Great article! Along the lines of adding see-through furniture, is just not adding too much furniture to the space. If you can’t fit a coffee table, making it glass won’t help! Instead add a set of nesting tables or poufs. Both of those are small and more versatile, making the space work for you.
