We all dream of having a luxury home, but most of us don’t have the luxury budget to buy it. The good news is, with a few little changes here and there, you can create a high-end feel to your home without having to break the bank. Here are our top five things that will add instant luxury in your home.

Make Your Furniture One Of A Kind

Unique, one-of-a-kind items can really make your style stand out from the pack. But you don’t have to spend a fortune; have a look round your local vintage furniture shops to find unique pieces that would look great in your home. An armchair for the nook of your kitchen for example, or a sideboard for your dining room. If you’re feel crafty, you could have a go at creating your own furniture. From reupholstering a chair to repainting your dining table, you can make something that’s truly unique.

Pick An Opulent Colour Scheme

There are certain colours that just scream luxury − dusky orange, rich greys and olive greens, for example. If you want to stick with a neutral palate, tonal whites create the illusion of space, making your room appear larger and grandeur. You can then incorporate colour in other ways, for example, hand-painted wardrobe doors, a big bold painting or gold or brass ornaments.

The Little Touches

Create a talking point in each room with some carefully chosen ornaments and trinkets placed on shelves or as centrepieces on your dining table. Whenever you go on holiday or a trip, visit the local markets and shops to find interesting and beautiful things to bring back with you. It could be a painting by a local artist, a vase from an antique shop, a piece of pottery, a tablecloth, or an instrument.

Hit The Lights

A statement light or two instantly adds a wow factor in a room. Choose a chandelier lamp in a hallway, a colourful pendant lamp or two hanging above your kitchen or dining table or antique-style table lamps for an opulent feel in a cosy lounge.

High-End Fabrics

Rich fabrics like velvet, velour and silk all add that sense of luxury to a room, so if you scrimp on your furniture, you can splurge on the accessories. Think Egyptian cotton bedsheets, satin pillowcases, velvet throws and cushions and shaggy rugs.
