7 Little Ways to Make Your Home Feel More Luxurious
Whoever said you couldn’t have nice things neglected to think about a luxe feel often revolves around small aesthetic and quality of life changes. Here are seven little ways to make your home feel more luxurious when you don’t have a luxury-level bank account.
Ever feel like you’re freezing after a cold shower? It’s time to opt for a towel warmer. Warm, fluffy towels are a simple way to make you feel pampered, fighting off those post-shower shivers. Towel warmers are a great option even don’t live in an area with cold temperatures because they’ll keep your towels dry in a damp or humid environment.
Update your fixtures
Dated, builder-grade fixtures are out, and old, cracked, yellow light switches or outlet covers are really bringing down the vibes. To make your home feel more high-end, consider updating things like faucets and light fixtures. Think about spray painting fixtures to add gold accents to your home or installing touch-responsive faucets. Chandeliers or oversized pendant fixtures over a kitchen island, dining area, bedroom, or even a hallway are a great choice. Bedside table sconces hung on the wall usually always look chic. Installing such eye-catching personality pieces can serve as the main centerpiece in a room, saving you money by spending less on other decorations.
Layer the lighting
In luxe spaces, there’s not just one overhead light. The goal is to create focal points and pools of lights in areas of interest. Have you been to an art gallery and seen a light pointed at a painting? It really elevates the experience and makes the art look more expensive, right? Mix recessed lights, pendants, hidden strip lights, ambient lights, downlighting, uplighting, and so on. Use dimmers when possible and motion sensors if you opt for smart lights.
Don’t forget about the outside of your home. Landscape lights can enhance your yard structure and gardens by creating a resort-like feel to your outdoor living areas. They can really brighten up the overall look of your home, increasing your house’s value and reducing the risk of burglary.
An easy way to add luxury to your home is to get an electric fireplace. They are perfect for making your home feel warm and cozy. Electric fireplaces come in many different styles. You can decorate them to make them look even more elegant and sophisticated. The best part? You can enjoy your electric fireplace year-round.
Diffusers may be a very underrated element. Aromatherapy is huge in luxurious spaces, making them feel clean and expensive. Of course, some people may have sensitivities to certain scents but if you’re not one of those people, opt for essential oils such as Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Bergamot, Grapefruit, and Lavender.
Maintain what you have
Lastly, let’s not forget to maintain what you have. Generally, anything well maintained will feel more premium. That’s why new things always feel so nice. So don’t forget to dust your light fixtures, fix tile cracks, vacuum your carpet, and clean your mirrors!
