5 Ways to Make Your Home Look More Expensive


Sprucing up your home doesn't have to take a lot of money. Whether you are looking to add value to your home before putting it on the market or just want your living space to look more elegant, there are many inexpensive ways to make your home look more expensive.

Here are five ways to give your home a more elegant look.

Update your fixtures

The small fixtures like lighting, doorknobs, cupboard handles, and switches might not seem important, but they make a huge difference to the overall feel of your home. If your fixtures are old and boring, consider updating them with some flashier options. Update lighting with some more modern alternatives, or if you are willing to stretch your budget, why not invest in some Murano Glass Chandeliers? Upgrade switches and handles with sleeker, more aesthetically pleasing options, and your home will instantly feel more expensive.

Go neutral

Expensive modern homes all have that pared-down, minimalist look. The best way to emulate this in your home is to give your walls a color makeover. Opt for neutral shades like off-whites and greys. The same goes for furniture and upholstery.


If you have a home that's cluttered and packed to the rafters with hoarded possessions, you will struggle to get that luxurious feeling you're after. The sparse, minimalist look makes your home look more modern and can add tremendous value. Go through every room of your house and get rid of any belongings you no longer need. Once you've done this, try to keep floor spaces and surfaces clear. You may need to invest in some smart storage solutions to keep items out of the way. Underfloor and under-stair storage are brilliant ways to keep your belongings discreetly out of sight.

Add landscaping

One of the most effective ways you can add value to a home is by increasing its curb appeal, i.e., how pleasant it looks from the outside. If your driveway or front garden is cluttered and messy or sparse and barren, then it will need an improvement. A good way to boost curb appeal is by adding some greenery and subtle landscaping. This doesn't need to be expensive: you can do it yourself with a few plants from the garden center and a couple of hours on your hands and knees. Here are some of the most attractive plants you can buy on a budget

Make an artistic statement

Adding a large, bold piece of modern art is a great way to make your home feel more extravagant. It has a huge impact and can completely transform any room. And you don't have to spend extortionate amounts at art galleries. You can buy cheap art very easily from thrift stores, charity auctions and flea markets. 

There are so many ways to make your home look more expensive, and with the right techniques, this can be done relatively cheaply. Follow these five tips, and you'll be enjoying your splendid new living space in no time at all.
