Our home is our nest and the one place that comfortably accepts us and invites in no matter how we feel and what we’re going through.
As something that’s very near and dear to us, it is a common impulse to want to improve it and spruce it up, adding to it a note of decadent luxuriousness.
However, this redecorating process needs a bit of creativity and assertiveness from your part in order to turn things around and shift the aesthetic aspect of your home.
Here’s where you can start:
1. Improve Your Living Room
There’s nothing that can change things around for how the living room looks and feels than interesting, eclectic lighting fixtures.
You don’t need a huge budget in order to get a few light fixtures that really catch the eye and energize the room.
The design really steals the cake here and the options are virtually endless.
You can either complement the living room by choosing fixtures that keep the same style or alternatively picking fixtures that put a twist on the general ensemble.
Additionally, you’d be surprised to see how much shiny accents can change the overall feeling of the room.
To this end, you can opt for silky drapes, metallic-looking pillows and cashmere throws.
With such choices, you’ll instantly get the feeling that you’re entering a room that’s meant for royalty.
Another great and affordable way to make your living room look and feel more luxurious is to add mirrors to this important space in your home.
They can be in any shape and size, as they will open and brighten up the room, while also giving it a feeling of chic and elegance.
For something really special, look out for old ornate picture frames that can be repurposed for the occasion.
2. Let Your Bathroom Shine
Bathrooms are just as important as any other room of the house and the right design can make this space feel like an oasis worth coming home to every day.
When it comes to redecorating the bathroom, it definitely pays to check what the latest magazine and internet trends are.
First of all, consider the amount of space available and how best to maximise this with the right fixtures and storage options.
When it comes to the look, don’t be afraid to let your imagination take over and choose tile designs that really have a personality.
Go with bold colours and patterns (greens and blues being amongst the popular choices these days) that will inspire you each time you enter the bathroom.
As soon as you’re done with the larger items in the bathroom, focus your attention on the details that will tie the room together.
The bathroom doesn’t need to only be functional, it should also be an inviting zen space worth spending time in every day.
Consider adding potted flowers, unique lighting fixtures and perhaps even a small bookshelf for your favourite reads (if you also have a bathtub this is doubly encouraged).
3.Revive Your Bedroom
The bedroom is where we leave all our worries behind at the end of the day, so it only makes sense to pull it out of anonymity and give it a more luxurious feeling.
Linens are definitely one of the secret ingredients here, so make sure to look into some quality varieties, that not only feel luxurious to the touch, but also look like they’re straight out of a magazine.
Pillows are another way to make this precious space feel more luxurious and glamorous – try to use as many of them as possible and choose unique, beautiful colours that will complement the available palette.
As a final touch, you should hang some of your favourite artworks that best reflect your personality and help make the bedroom look truly unique.
Ultimately, however you choose to redecorate your home in order to make it feel more luxurious, keep in mind that it’s your space and it should be reflecting your individual, personal taste first of all.
With numerous sources for inspiration available all over the internet, there simply is no excuse to keep your house or flat not looking it’s absolute luxurious best.
