How to Add Opulence to Any Home
Want to update your home with some décor that makes it feel as though you’re living the life of luxury? There are ways to do this without totally breaking the bank and completely redecorating or renovating your home. With a few extravagant-looking updates, you can transform your home into a more luxurious space that will impress guests and, more importantly, satisfy your opulent tastes.
Update your lighting fixture
Lighting can make or break the mood of any room, so it’s essential to consider your fixtures carefully. Lavish lighting fixtures are an easy way to add luxury to your home. Replace an old, outdated fixture with a stunning statement piece to make an attractive focal point for the room. Large overhead pieces do well in living and dining areas, and if you want to take it one step further, find matching table lamps to bring your décor to the next level of luxury.
Add a fireplace
They aren’t just for heat – fireplaces add a touch of class and opulence to any room they’re placed in, from living rooms to bedrooms. Super luxurious homes may even have a fireplace in the bathroom, as long as there’s enough space! No matter what style you prefer, whether it’s a more traditional fireplace or a contemporary one, fire is an excellent luxurious addition to your home.
If you’re keen on a more energy-efficient option, balanced flue gas fires are a great choice for any space. Because of their design, more heat enters the room rather than up the chimney, so they can effectively heat your entire room instead of the area directly in front of the fireplace.
Get rid of the old carpeting
Old, bland carpeting can make an otherwise beautiful room look drab and dingy. Why not tear up the carpet and replace it with hardwood floors or a stained concrete flooring option? It may be a bigger undertaking, but the results will be worth it. If you’re worried about cold feet during the winter months, you can layer your décor with a lush area rug. This will not only keep your feet warm but will also add visual interest and luxury to your space. Plus, hardwood and concrete floors are so much easier to clean than carpeting.
Decorate with greenery
Fresh cut flower arrangements in decorative vases are a lush and luxurious way to add some colour to your décor. You can alternate between seasons, picking the right flowers that match the feel of each season to bring the outdoors in. The beautiful floral scents will also fill your home, adding to the luxurious feel.
Landscape your yard
Both your front yard and backyard should look properly groomed and landscaped if you want your home to look luxurious, both inside and out. Having a well-manicured lawn is one thing, but adding flowerbeds, shrubs, garden lighting, walkways, and perhaps even a fountain or gazebo can add curb appeal to your home and make you feel as though you’ve entered a garden paradise. If you feel like you want to tackle some DIY projects yourself, there are plenty of tasks you can do in a weekend to spruce up your yard, but for bigger or more serious jobs like building a gazebo, installing brickwork, or putting in a water feature, a landscaper is your best bet.
