If you’re spending a lot more time at home at the moment, like a lot of people, then you may be thinking that you’d like to give your home a more luxurious feel, so that you can feel pampered and relaxed while you’re there. Naturally, some ways of changing your home’s feel can require a lot of work, such as repainting walls to a new color or having a beautiful new kitchen installed, but there are smaller things you can do or add that will make areas of your home feel reinvigorated and add that luxury touch without any major upheaval. Here, we are going to be giving you some suggestions along those lines.
Add a Luxury Furniture Piece to Your Living Room:
Your living room should be a place where you can relax and do your favorite things, like reading, watching things, or playing games. Having a particularly plush place to sit in total comfort while you do this will definitely make you feel like you are enjoying home luxury, and so a lavish armchair or recliner can be a wonderful way to upgrade your living space. You don’t need to stop with just a nice recliner, however, as nothing says luxury like a great massage – opt for a massage chair and you will be able to enjoy the feel of a relaxing massage whenever the mood takes you, while also getting a great new chair for your living room. Of course, if you don’t live on your own, you may need to buy more than one so that there’s no fighting over the best seat in the house!
Get an Opulent Look with Luxury Textiles:
Another easy way to increase the luxury in your home, both visually and in terms of comfort, is to add luxury soft furnishings in rich textiles like velvet, high thread-count Egyptian cotton, silk and satin. Layering different textures together with things like throws and cushion covers can create a high end feel while also giving soft, comfortable things to sit or sleep on, so consider this for your bed and your chairs.
When it comes to color, a luxury feel can be achieved with just about any palette from chic, modern black and white through to soft pastels or deep jewel colors, and so you can use the approach of adding more color or emphasizing and existing color scheme while choosing soft furnishings without needing to overhaul the look of the rest of the room.
Using soft furnishings to add color and texture also makes for a versatile approach, as if you have a fairly neutral permanent color scheme in the room, they can be swapped in and out for the season, changing the accent colors in the room instantly and allowing you to switch between thick, comforting fabrics in winter and light, airy ones in summer.
You can do a lot to change the mood of a room by changing the lighting, and so having different lighting options in the rooms you relax in can allow you to create a nice, luxurious ambiance that fits with what you are doing. LED lighting makes it easy to achieve adjustable lighting, with color-changing lights as well as lights with different brightness settings now easy to find and inexpensive. Consider how you might be able to change the feel of your rooms by adding different lights or even just some well-placed lamps, and you should be able to achieve all kinds of different effects.
By adding some key comfort furniture, getting some gorgeous, lavish soft furnishings, and updating the lighting, you can easily add a much more luxurious feel to your home, no matter what your decor style.
