As the old saying that we’ve probably all heard of, everyone should feel that their home is their castle. Their retreat, respite, and rest from the outside. Being able to do all of that in a home that you love to be in is even better. And if all of our homes are our castles, then we deserve a bit of luxury, right? They don’t just have to be the things that we see on reality shows or in movies. You can add elements of luxury to your home, without even having to move. With a little bit of time and effort, you can step up your home’s glam game quite easily. Here are a few ideas for you to get you inspired.
Add New Pieces of Furniture
When you add a new luxury piece of furniture to a room, it can make a big difference. Think about your bedroom, for instance. Can you update the room with a luxurious dresser, bookshelf or mirror? An accent piece of furniture that just screams luxury, can be the focal point of the room. You could look in various stores, including vintage stores, for a piece that you could restore. But for me, I think that Italian furniture tends to be quite classy and can have quite a luxurious feel. If their statues and monuments in the country are anything to go by, then you know that it will more than likely be pretty well made with plenty of attention to detail. So hunt around for something new that you could add to your home.
Give Each Room a Focal Point
This is similar to the point above, in that a piece of furniture can really make a difference to the look of a room. In a bedroom, it would more than likely be the bed that is the focal point. So dress it up with luxury linens, cushions or a headboard, for instance. In a dining room, the focal point could be the table. It could also be a light fitting above the centre of the table, for example. So if you fancied choosing something like a chandelier or a pendant light fixture, then it would work well for a light fitting as your eye would be drawn to it as soon as you entered the room.
Finish the Room with Molding
Molding and trim are two quite common things in a room that can get forgotten about. But when they are added, it can change the look of a room in a rather subtle way. It certainly makes it all look much better, though. Crown molding runs along the top of the wall and overlaps with the ceiling; not all rooms have it. But you can easily put some in yourself or have someone else do it for you. You can get more luxury or extravagant fittings for the corners of a room that are a little more ornate. You can also add some trim or crowning directly to the ceiling. It could focus on a light fitting to make it more of a statement.
