You see truly luxurious homes in magazines and on the TV screen—but you might not know how to emulate the look in your own home. Fortunately, achieving a luxurious feel in your home doesn’t have to mean spending a fortune or upgrading to a newer, bigger house.


Read on for our 10 best ways to achieve a luxurious feel in your home.


Small touches


The key to any luxury remodel is to focus on the small touches—and not necessarily big, lavish displays. The combination of many subtle touches, from lighting to linens to the soaps in your bathroom or kitchen, can make more of an impact than the addition of one or two big-ticket items.


Soft, luxurious linens


When you check into a luxury hotel, you expect a soft, plush bed to sleep in and similarly cozy towels to dry off with. Keep these lux traits in mind as you redesign your space! Use materials that make you and your guests feel comfortable and relaxed—because luxury is about more than just looks.


While we’re on the topic of feeling cozy, don’t forget about your floors! Cover your floors with soft, plush rugs that are always clean and easy on the feet.


An inviting entryway


First impressions are everything, so be sure to make a great one when your guests walk through the door. You can do this by inviting guests in with small but elegant furniture (like a foyer table), fresh flowers, candles, an intricately-framed mirror and other items to dress up the space.


Organization


Many homeowners may overlook the importance of cleanliness and organization on the path to luxury—but these traits can actually have a huge impact on the feel of your home! Use clever organization methods (such as hidden storage for your electronics) throughout your home to achieve a lux, tidy feel. Even simply straightening out your magazines on the coffee table or arranging countertop items in a neat row can make a big difference.


Lighting


For a luxurious lighting scheme, avoid unflattering overhead lights when possible. Light your rooms with stylish lamps and intricate lighting fixtures to achieve luxurious accents that are also functional.


A fresh coat of paint


Sometimes, all you need is a fresh coat of paint to make a room in your home feel more luxurious. Swap out old, outdated colors for bolder shades or designs, and be sure to paint over any chips you find on your stair railing, door, etc.


Crown molding


Crown molding seems to be a telltale sign of luxury—but it’s less expensive than you might think! Add crown molding to rooms in your home for a subtle touch that finishes off the space.


Fresh flowers


Having fresh flowers on display in your entryway, kitchen or living space doesn’t just make your space look good—it can add a sweet, subtle scene that your family and guests will enjoy.


Spa-style bathroom


Make the bathrooms in your home worthy of a five-star rating by adding spa-centric touches to them. Candles, plush and well-displayed towels and small décor items can turn an ordinary bathroom into a truly luxurious one.


Accents


Having at least one bold, decorative accent in a room can dramatically change the space’s ambiance. Consider adding a piece of art or small sculpture to tie the space together and make a statement.
