We all want that dose of luxury in our homes but, of course, the biggest problem is our budget. It is not just about making our home look luxurious but it has to feel luxurious as well. Let's show you some ways that we can all make our homes look and feel more luxurious.

Using Faux Materials

This is one of the best ways to evoke that luxury look on a modest budget. Materials like cultured marble and blue onyx effect porcelain tiles instantly transform a bathroom into a peaceful oasis. When we utilize faux materials around the house, we can take advantage of that luxury aesthetic.

Character Furniture

While many homes used to be judged as aesthetically pleasing when there was a matching suite of furniture. People's tastes have moved away from matching items around the home, opting for character pieces. This means that you can easily create characters with older items of furniture that you can either upgrade yourself or spend a little bit more on getting something classy. Wood furniture can evoke that sense of rustic-ness, but if you're going for a more luxurious look, you need to decorate by mixing antiques with newer furniture to create a space that is unique to you. When you are using wood furniture, you need to pick different color variations to create a sense of diversity.

Paint a Feature Wall

Feature walls were all the rage a couple of years ago and focal points are always a great talking point. You decorate a feature wall with a mural, but if you're not too arty you can put a few geometric shapes to create a simple and striking aesthetic.

Refresh Your Windows

Lots of people cannot afford to purchase new windows, so the next best thing is to paint the window frames or doors by yourself with popular colors like anthracite. You can find specialist paints that cover up the existing colors for a modest amount. When you refresh those windows and doors and start to think about little ways to refresh other parts of your house, for example, by changing the light fixtures and replacing the handles on cabinets and doors, this can instantly create a more luxurious look for cheap.

Create a Hidden Room

This is a very nifty part of any luxury home. You can incorporate a hidden room into your space without compromising the overall feel of the space. For example, you can divide a room in half with a new wall containing a hidden door. Of course, this isn't feasible in smaller homes but when we start to be more creative, for example, making a hidden room under a staircase, we can tap into our home’s potential, turning it into our dream home.

We all want our home to revoke that sense of luxuriousness. The fact is that we don't need to completely overhaul our home. There are a number of ways to make sure that your home looks and feels like it's got a touch of class.
