As the old saying goes, your home should be your castle. But in reality, it can be tricky to get that ideal castle if you’re not quite a millionaire. Those dreamy home boards on Pinterest don’t come cheap, right? But it doesn’t have to be that way; you can add some real luxury touches to your home no matter what amount of money you have to spend. On that note, though, it is really important to remember that adding touches of luxury to the home doesn’t mean over the top or really extreme. You can add luxury touches to your home in simple ways, that can complement the rest of the decor in the room.
So with that in mind, here are some of the ways that you can add luxury touches to your home in subtle ways, on any budget.
Molding and Trim
If you want to add some luxury touches to any room in your home, then one of the classic tactics to do so is with molding and trim that can help to create a comfortable space. They are a simple touch that finishes off a room and rounds the space, bringing it all together. A wall can look quite blank when there is no molding. So think about adding crown molding in a room if there isn’t any, as well as a solid baseboard too. You could even think about adding in a chair rail or wainscotting to the room if a classic lux look is what you are going for.
Add Focal Points in Each Room
When you walk into a room in your home, where are your eyes drawn to? If there isn’t anything especially that does draw your eye, then you need to think about making a focal point for each room in the home. It might sound like a big word, but it is all about drawing your eye to one thing. In a bedroom, it is usually the bed, especially if it is a striking bed like a sleigh bed. It could be a fireplace in a living room or even getting some striking Kookudesign Serge Mouille lighting in the corner of your home. You may have something that could be made into more of a focal point with a few extra things, such as making the fireplace mantel more striking by repainting it and adding a few trinkets. It doesn’t have to be something big to make a difference to where your eyes are drawn to in a room.
Choose Warm Colors
The color that we have in each room in the home does play a part in how we feel in the home, such as feeling more relaxed or stressed, but color can also play a part in how luxurious a room looks. Warmer colors are much better for creating a luxury ambiance than cool ones. Warm tones like orange, red, and yellow are associated with a space feeling cozy, so that can be a good idea when trying to create a luxury feel. If you prefer some cooler colors, then jewel tones like deep purple and emerald green are good choices for a luxury look.
