Luxury is quiet, but you know it when you see it. There’s something pretty special about walking through the front doors of a high-end hotel and getting a sense of the refined sophistication that radiates around the establishment.

In truth, it’ll likely be difficult to replicate that experience unless you have millions in the bank. But who says you have to go all-out with these things? Not us. There are plenty of easy, relatively affordable ways to give your home a touch of luxury. We’ll run through some of the most effective ways below. Take them on board, and you won’t just be elevating your home; you’ll be elevating your lifestyle.

Add More Natural Light

If you were to picture a luxury space, you probably wouldn’t imagine a dark and dingy space. Nope, you’d imagine a home that was expansive, spacious, and oh-so-bright. One of the most effective ways to gently increase your home’s luxury credentials is to increase the amount of sunlight that can find its way into your property.

There are multiple ways to do this. The simplest way is to upgrade your windows since old windows tend to reduce direct light. If that doesn’t fit your budget, then look for more imaginative ways to increase the light in your home, including removing bulky furniture from access points and hanging a few mirrors at carefully selected spots — they’ll help to bounce light around your home.

Statement Furniture

Your home’s furniture should primarily be functional, but it also offers a great way to give your property a touch of quality. After all, you need to have a dining table anyway, so why not make it one that pushes the luxury of your home in the right direction? Instead of opting for a standard dining table set, look for furniture made from better-quality materials. Marble dining table and chair sets offer a timeless, elegant look that is very much in line with what we think luxury should be. Plus, they’re highly durable and easy to maintain.


Upgrade Your Homeware Essentials 

You can make large, wholescale changes to your home to increase its level of luxury, but you don’t necessarily need to. Sometimes, small adjustments can be just as effective. For instance, let’s think about your homeware essentials. It’s all too easy — and, of course, cheap — to just buy mugs, plates, and other necessities from a big box store. Yet those aren’t qualities we associate with luxury. Instead, take a look at spending a bit more than you usually would to get essentials that you genuinely enjoy using, and which can take pride of place on a shelf when not in use. Plus, as with marble furniture, these slightly nicer home additions will be made to last. It’s not unthinkable that you will be giving them to your son or daughter when they move into a home of their own.

Create an Outdoor Living Space 

To us, luxury is all about relaxation. That can be easy enough to do in the winter when your living room will become your go-to space, but what about during the summer months? At those periods, it’ll be heaven on earth to have a quality outdoor space in which to soak up the rays. Think of a top-end hotel room that comes complete with its own terrace. Well, why not have that on your own property? It takes a bit of work — and money — to create an outdoor living space, but it’s certainly an achievable aspiration. The best approach is to think of your external area as its own “room.” Take that view, and your imagination will be firing with all the possibilities that it offers.

Wall Art

Some things are functional. Some things are there because they bring joy into our lives. Wall art can serve as a focal point for a room, but its main job is to put a smile on our faces. Plus, it works better as a decoration than a television. There are a couple of rules to buying art that’ll help to ensure you get one that nudges your home in the right direction. One: buy an original piece, not one from a big box store. Two, buy something that you like.

Luxury Scents

Finally, you can set a luxurious tone for your home by investing in luxury scents that transport your heart, mind, and spirit to a refined space. Essential oil diffusers are affordable and easy to use. From there, it’ll be just about picking which lovely smells you want in your home.
