Remember MTV Cribs, the show that let us peek into the homes of the rich and famous? Yeah, that was a double-edged sword. On the one hand: it was fun to see just how glamorous life can be. But on the other: it showed us a home we’ll likely never possess for ourselves! But it’s important to remember that you don’t need to have millions in the bank to have a luxurious home. While you might not have your own custom-made swimming pool or home cinema system, there are plenty of ways to up your home’s luxury levels. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Focus On the Main Rooms

You’re not going to have the budget to overhaul your entire home with luxury decor, but then again, you don’t need to. Instead, focus your luxury attentions on a few key areas in your house. In particular, the bathroom, living room, and kitchen. These are the three most important rooms, the ones where you spend most of your time (excluding the bedroom that is, but who sees that besides you and your partner?). Take a look at a few ways to make your kitchen feel more luxurious, and in no time at all, you’ll feel like you’re on an episode of Cribs when you’re cooking. Well, nearly. 

Add Luxury Touches

Luxury is just what looks good and what doesn’t look like it was grabbed from the bargain bin; whether it’s big or small in size is not important. As such, why not make the most of a few small, inexpensive additions you can make around the house? It’s all about the finishing touches. For example, switch out the door handles that came with your purchase for a more luxury option. The cost will be next to nothing, but the impact will be big. 

Get Individual 

If you’re after a luxury look in the home, then you’re going to have to avoid those mass-produced items that you find in the big superstores. Everyone has them, and even though they can look good, their charm is kind of undone by just how ubiquitous they are. Instead, get individual, and show off your personality at the same time. For your lamps, look at getting a stained glass version from www.stainedglasspanelsplus.com. For your wall decoration, don’t buy the same blown-up photograph every has on their walls; scour vintage markets, and pick up something unique and with a backstory. 

Well-Lit Spaces

If you’ve ever spent any time in a luxury hotel, you might have noticed something: they’re extremely well-lit. This is the secret to creating a luxury feel! You want lights that show off the strengths of your home, while also being functional. If you don’t know where to begin, take a read of what you should be doing to get the best light in each room at https://lifehacker.com/how-to-pick-the-best-light-bulbs-for-every-room-in-your-1713809049

Unique Furniture

Finally, don’t underestimate the power of unique furniture! Hit those flea markets, pick up something old school and unique, and your home will be screaming luxury in no time.
