There are many reasons why you would want a more luxurious room as…
- you want to impress the in-laws, boss, neighbors, etc
- you want to pamper the family and yourself
- you’re staging the space for potential buyers
Here are 5 ways you can instantly increase the luxury factor in your home no matter if you want a more casual or more formal home:
Light and dark, shiny and matte, hard and soft…all of these contrasts add drama and a sense of richness to the space. And, like in the example above, you can work with many different types of contrast. In the deck room shown above the bright white trim contrasts against the black wrought iron features, the shiny mirror contrasts against all of the other matte finishes, the soft cushions contrast against the sleek lines of the hard-surfaces such as the porcelain ceramic floor tile
From matte wrought iron to glossy silver, metals in decor have always added a sense of luxury and wealth to a space. And be sure to mix and match! The picture of the living room shown above shows how they’ve mixed wrought iron and gold into their decor!
3: Long Curtains
Using long curtains installed above your windows creates the feel of taller ceilings, larger windows, plus the extra cloth can soften the space and provide some contrast against harder surfaces used.
4: Wooden and Stone Surfaces
Mixing wood, stone, and other natural materials ads a warmth and richness to a space that nothing else can. There is no need to go ornate unless you want. And they also lend themselves to subtle patterns that can add a lot to a space such as the herringbone shown in the hardwood
above. Tile mosaics
are great ways to add that stone element.
5: Area Rugs and Runners
Plus, if you have a hard surface floor, you can very easily add rugs and runners
to define spaces, create focal points, add contrast, tie design elements together, and so much more! Plus, this allows you to add another natural finish: wool
