How to Give Your Home a Luxurious Finish

Posted by on

Sometimes, it can be hard to balance your everyday living style with the luxury home you dream of having. 
Many feel at a loss as to how to transform their home to give it a luxurious feel without going over the top. 
If this sounds like you, we’ve got some fantastic tips to help you on your way.
 

Add Metallic Accessories

Gold and other metals give almost anything a luxurious finish. Pick which metallic works best with your décor and be careful not to go overboard with it.
 
Look for metallic platters and trays to place on tables. Or hang metallic-trimmed mirrors around your home. Other gold or silver accessories strategically placed around your home will work well, too.
 

Look at Your Lighting

Lighting can make or break a room. Not only the light itself but the sources of your lighting.
 
Look for quality lamps and light fixtures (maybe with gold accents) to place around your room to put off the best light possible.
 
And open your curtains wide to let in all the natural light you can.
 

Watch Your Colour Scheme

Sophisticated looking rooms have colours which complement each other. Choosing two or three similar colours that will look incredible together helps the room look more cohesive and pleasing to the eye.
 
Warmer and neutral colours work best for making your room look more luxurious. But watch out for contrasting and really vibrant colours. These colours can make your home look trendy, but it won’t necessarily feel luxe.
 

Get Some Amazing Artwork

If you have some great art, make it a focal part of your room. And even if you don’t, you can find great classic art at almost all price points.
 
Don’t go overboard, though. Leave it to three pieces for an average sized room.
 

Find the Right Fabrics

Luxurious fabrics are not only soft and cozy, but they look rich in a room. You can literally wrap most furniture in your home in luxury.
 
In your living areas, choose furniture with soft, supple upholstery, like velvet, or drape plush throws over your chairs.
 
In the bedroom, choose luxurious fabrics and textures for your bedding. And don't forget the bathroom. Go ahead and choose the plushest towels you can find.
 

Extra Touch of Class

 
Sometimes, a little goes a long way, especially when it comes to adding a  luxurious finish to your home. 
 
Choose some elegant new hardware for your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, get fresh new window treatments, and install classy faucets in all your sinks. This is a simple fix that'll give your home the high-end finish you’ve been looking for.
 

Add Some Greenery

Placing live plants around a room can literally breathe some life into a room. Make sure not to inundate your room with greenery, though. And be sure to care for your plants properly. You want them to stay green, after all, and not overgrown.
 

Control Your Clutter

Clutter makes everything look disorganized. We know it’s hard to stay ahead of the mess if you have kids and a busy life. But try to keep at least one room, such as your living room, clean and clutter-free.
 
Doing this will provide you with at least one room to feel luxurious in, not to mention guest-ready should friends drop by.
