You wake up in the morning, take in your surroundings and sigh happily — luxurious is the best word to describe your hotel room. Everything from the robes to the bed comforter is cozily plush. The natural colors are comforting, and at the same time, incredibly elegant. There's no clutter in sight, helping you feel instantly more at ease and energized. It's too bad you have to check out in a few hours and return to your disorganized, unsightly home. Or is it?
You don't have to spend the big bucks on a pricey hotel room to get close to the luxury you crave. These five simple tips will help you plan your luxurious home, even on a budget!
Know where to splurge and where to save
Many stylish, affordable accessories can create a luxurious look in your home. Stay on budget by choosing inexpensive decor and only splurging when necessary. For example, there's no need to spend the big bucks on a vase or throw pillow. You can splurge, however, on a supportive mattress and soft bedding.
Pay attention to textures
Textured accessories make a big impact in a home, helping you get the look you want with less stuff. Plush rugs, soft silk pillowcases and a cozy fabric chair are a few items that create an elegant and relaxed setting.
Use colors carefully
Some people picture a luxurious room decorated in an array of rich colors, but these types of color palettes can easily feel overwhelming. You can also design a luxurious home by using quiet, classic colors like white or organic tones found in natural decor. Then add pops of rich colors with accessories.
Invest in storage solutions that help you get organized
You can't design a luxurious home without good organization. If clutter is a constant issue, tackle the mess with versatile storage solutions that make use of unused space in your home, like wall storage.
Don't forget about lighting
Good lighting is the key to designing a luxurious home. Install dimmers in each room that allow you to adjust brightness throughout the day and set the perfect mood.
You don't have to wait to enjoy a luxurious environment. Use these tips at home to add a little luxury to your current setup.
