Affordable Ways to Make Your Simple Home Look More Expensive

In a perfect world, we would want to have a world-class designer at our disposition to turn our spaces to release comfort, luxury, and class. Unfortunately, the reality is, some of us can’t really afford to have those. 

Luckily, there are plenty of ways to have a custom, upscale look without breaking your budget. You don’t need to take expensive measures either. All you need is to read this article and we’ll share with you a few simple adjustments and strategic styling techniques where you may turn your space into a regal one. 

Freshen Your Space With Plants

You don’t need an expensive mega-arrangement to add luxury to your space. A nice and cheap bouquet from the grocery store can be all you need to add sophistication. Aside from that, it’s all about how you arrange the flowers and the type of vase you arrange them in. All you need to do is to separate the bouquet by stem type then make some small arrangements to spread around your home. 

Doing this will have a little dent in your wallet, but the impact on your home is huge. However, if you can’t find something you can use at the grocery store, take a stroll outside and cut several trimmings off a tree or plant then place it simply in a table or floor vase. Having some greenery will instantly brighten the space and make it feel homier. 

Modernize Old Light Fixture 

Maybe it’s time to update your lighting with a new light fixture. Whether you want to bring up to date your pendant light in the dining room or lamps in the living room, renovating your light fixture is an inexpensive way to help you see your space in a completely new light. 

Long Curtains for Loftier Space

If you notice, a lot of luxurious and expensive homes have high ceilings and intensely filled with natural light. You can fool the eye and achieve that look by hanging your drapery and hardware as tall and close to the ceiling as possible, never directly above the window frame. This will attract the eye up and give the appearance of a loftier space. 

Don’t Welcome Any Clutter 

For a lavish home, clutter and mess are definitely not welcome! It’s great to have a generously styled bookshelf or mantlepiece, but too much stuff can appear chaotic and cheap. Organize your accessories and minimize your collected possessions to just those few favourites for a look that feels elevated and sophisticated. 

Add a Fresh Coat 

Nothing will show off a personalized and custom vibe more than perfectly hued walls. It’s time for you to get working and grab your paint rollers out of storage to achieve the look for a cheaper price. Painting your rooms or a single wall in your home provides a major impact in any space. Nothing compares to a transformative effect of crisp white walls or dove grey cabinets. Choose the perfect paint colour for every room and it will add that luxurious vibe you want. 

Carefully Style Each Area

Those spaces that are decorated most professionally put importance to the art of surface styling. After you’ve finished editing down your decorative accessories to your favourites, you should intentionally arrange them in an eye-please manner. For instance, you can place velvet dining chairs in the kitchen area, arrange your coffee table, your mantel, or place indoor benches. 

You may give your furniture the spotlight it needs with some easy yet professionally styled pieces for an overall richer experience. 

Place Huge Art

Maybe it’s time to replace your home’s artworks with just one big statement piece? If you are going to hang an over-sized piece of art by itself, it will have a big impact. There are plenty of cheap and fun pieces at thrift stores and flea markets. 

Have a Nice Rug 

It’s a cheap and nice way to ground your furniture with a statement-making rug. A rug doesn’t only bring everything together, but it positions the foundation and sets the stage for the rest of the room. 

Having an area rug increases the lack of warmth, texture, and colour. The larger the rug, the more custom and lavish it will look including some or your furniture arrangement you are able to comfortable include on it. 

Although you have a rental apartment with carpeting, placing a rug on top will help emphasize different spaces and add that specific something. For instance, you may add a Turkish rug with a wooden armchair and metal accessories. 

Make Them Gold 

We don’t really mean to get things that are made of gold! What we mean is, buy a can of gold spray paint to update the look of picture and mirror frames, vases, and trays! This is easy on the wallet and can add some glamour to any room.
