Updating your decor is a great way to make your space feel like new. If you want to introduce some elegance into your home, creating a luxurious living space is only a few steps away. Whether you live in an apartment, condo, or house, there are plenty of ways to bring a splash of high-class into your decor. Here are a few of our top recommendations for making your home more luxurious.
First things first, your furniture is one of the most important aspects of your interior design. From style to comfort, it plays a large role in setting the tone for your home. That’s why we highly recommend investing in high-quality pieces that are not only more comfortable, but will last longer. A few of our favorite premium brands include:
- Hooker Furniture
- Boca do Lobo
Whether you’re after sleek and modern metal finishes or rich wood pieces, you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for when shopping with one of these companies.
Lighting can make a powerful statement or help subtly set the mood. But it can also look cheap. If your lighting feels outdated or doesn’t match the style of the rest of your decor, it’s time to upgrade. Fortunately, there are plenty of options that can make your home feel more luxurious like:
- Sleek table lamps in a metallic finish
- Modern floor lamps that add a design element
- A statement chandelier in the entryway
- Intricately designed pendant lighting
While selecting the fixture is one aspect of finding the right luxury lighting for your home, you should also consider the bulb. Is it an aggressive white light that makes your space feel sterile and uncomfortable? If so, switch it out for a softer shade.
The flooring throughout your home will no doubt have a large effect on the atmosphere you create with your interior design. If your home has cheap or worn-down flooring, it is likely to take away from your other efforts to create an air of luxury. Well-crafted wood flooring is a classic choice but to take it to the next level of opulence, tiling is the way to go.
Whether you choose to go with marble, vinyl, or concrete, the materials are just the beginning. The design can also make or break your selection. While patterned and mosaic tiles are common in luxury homes, a classic minimal design can also go a long way.
Few elements make a home feel more outdated or tacky than bad cabinetry. If you’re looking to make an impactful upgrade, start here, especially if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Consult any home remodel consultant and they’ll likely tell you the same thing.
When considering the right materials for your new cabinets, take your time. They should blend with the rest of your home’s design, whether that’s sleek and modern or heavier tones and textures. Often, you can’t go wrong with a high-quality wood with a nice stain that suits your style. Fortunately there are plenty of options when considering fine new cabinetry for your home, including:
- Bakes & Kropp
- Dutch Made Inc.
- LEICHT Boston
- Ovation Cabinetry
Keep in mind that the knobs and pulls you use should also be chosen carefully to create the best end result.
Attention to Detail
From decorative pillows to American Blanket Company’s throws that are made of high-end materials, detailed accents can make a world of difference. When you are selecting candle sticks, picture frames, coasters, and more, think about how they tie into your interior design. Do they add to the luxurious feel, or do they create clutter and confusion.
Typically, when it comes to the details, less is more. However, carefully selected design details can up the elegance of your home and bring out more of your personality.
Pulling It All Together
Keep in mind that all the elements of your home’s design should work together. Thoughtful design choices in each of these categories will help you create perfectly curated high-end decor. Whether you have lived in your home for a decade or are designing a new one from scratch, you can achieve the luxurious feel you desire.
