Luxury On a Budget : Elevate Your Home For Less

Calling all homeowners! You likely understand the stress of trying to decorate your home without breaking the bank. We’ve all been there. Especially when your home is empty and needs a completely fresh makeover. Creating a boujee home on a budget is not easy in the slightest. It is however possible with the easy, secret hacks which we will share with you today.

In this blog, we will cover the simple tricks for making your home look expensive, all while sticking to a budget. Take a look at the following suggestions:

Floor-to-ceiling curtains

First things first, what do all expensive homes have in common? For the most part, they have lots of room! Most of us do not have the luxury of having a large home, so we have to create the illusion. Floor-to-ceiling curtains are a great way to extend the perceived space in the room, all while sticking to a tight budget. You can find beautiful second-hand curtains and charity shops or second-hand homeware shops, for less! Do some digging, and also find easy-to-install curtain holders that will safely hold onto the highest point of the wall above any window sills.

Room-sized rugs

Speaking of oversized illusions, large rugs are also great additions that create the luxury feel we are all trying to achieve. First, make sure your rooms of choice are not cluttered. Move any furniture that is taking up too much space, do a good job of cleaning the area, and take your measurements of the room. Luxury homeowners opt for rugs that fill the living and relaxing space, whilst leaving room for some hard floor to display their lighting fixtures and ornaments. Find a rug that key furniture items such as the bed and table stands will fit within. Also consider making your large rug a statement piece, using contrasting colours to highlight the space more. Again, second-hand rugs can be easily found in fakebook marketplaces.

Oversize faux plants

Plants are rich and portray purity, adding some greenery into your home can be easily done whilst staying on your budget. You can either add subtle plant features around the room or dedicate a room for plants to create an indoor green sanctuary. Whilst you may not be able to afford the most expensive plants

Soft, decorative furnishings

Luxury homes are always abundant with soft furnishings throughout. From sofa cushion covers, to oversize throws, make sure that the cosy areas in your home have enough soft furnishing to fill up the entire space. There are loads of budget soft furnishing stores to choose from. Items such as pillows that can be reused and repurposed over time might be worth spending that extra penny on, especially as they will bring together the aesthetic of your sofa.

Consider panelling

Panelling is the new home trend that everyone is jumping on. The beauty of panelling is that just about anyone can do panelling by themselves at home, which can make it a really fun DIY project. Buy the right supplies, or ask friends and family if they have spare tools to assist. Consider a contrasting panning effect in key rooms such as the bedroom and living room.

Bottom line

Overall, making a beautiful home does not always require an excessive amount of money. From luxury cushions to faux plants, there are tons of small additions that can bring your home together. Get creative and use the strategic steps we have suggested to make your home look expensive on a budget.
