Who doesn’t want luxury? Of course, a lot of us dream about having a mansion, even if it’s not realistic. Plus, who wants to maintain a mansion anyway? There are some small changes you can make to your home that will make it much more luxurious. If you’d like to learn a few ways to make your home more luxurious, we put together a comprehensive guide below.
Add high-end materials
No home can be luxurious without working in some leathers, marble, solid wood, and so on. High-end materials are a must because they’re not only beautiful, they’re also more durable than other alternatives. Even if you start out with a round marble top coffee table, it’s a great beginning. Remember, updating your home is always a slow process, but that means you’ll have time to shop around. The best pieces aren’t always found in an expensive furniture store – you can find pieces at yard sales and online marketplaces too. Think neutral. A tufted sectional sofa might be good for this avenue; it has a modern color that goes well with its look.
Incorporate a modern color palette
Giving your home a modern twist is always going to take the aesthetic up a notch, and the best way to do that is by painting the walls. Think of your walls as the foundation for your decor, once your walls are in-check, then you can begin adding more pieces. To make your home more modern, we’d suggest picking a modern color palette which consists of light grays, blacks, greens, and blues. Think neutral. By using a modern color palette, you’ll be able to pick pieces that’ll easily fit into your decor because a neutral color palette goes with almost everything.
Install crown molding
Crown molding adds a small detail in any home, but that small detail can make all the difference. For some people, choosing crown molding is difficult, especially if you’re aiming for a modern vibe. The reason is that a lot of individuals only have traditional experiences with crown molding, which means their tastes are traditional, and thus their home too. Luckily, there’s nothing wrong with traditional, and you can easily add a few traditional pieces to your modern home. In fact, some conventional pieces are better left with traditional designs, and crown molding is one of those.
For some, adding accessories throughout the home is the most enjoyable part, but some people also take it a little too far. Some of the best accessories to add to walls include paintings or artwork, preferably large scale. Adding some throw pillows and a blanket to your couch can really boost your living space. Just make sure that the pillows and blanket have a different texture than your couch, otherwise they might blend in or stick out, and not in a good way. You’re going to find pieces that make you happy, and that’s all that matters. Just remember that it’s always better to under-accessorize than over-accessorize.
Install new electronics
What luxurious home is complete without the latest technology? Everyone loves their entertainment systems and smart speakers, and your luxurious home should have it all. Why not install a smart home setup with either a Google or Alexa’s ecosystem? On the other hand, your entertainment center needs the best cables for an uninterrupted connection. For the best watching experience, you should use HDMI high-speed cables because they’re faster, more reliable, and versatile.
Like we mentioned, there are several ways to make your home more luxurious, but the transformation is going to be a slow process, so don’t rush anything and enjoy it. If you add items to your home that aren’t you, then your home isn’t going to feel like it’s yours.
