Create a High-End Look in Your Home on a Budget
Whether you are decorating a home or an apartment, if you want to capture a high-end look, you maybe thinking that you have to spend a lot of money. This is not the case. With a little bit of effort and creativity, you can create a high-end look to your space, all while staying within a tight budget. Here are some tips to help.
- Invest in Texture
Texture is often what distinguishes a plain space from a high end one. Plush robes and towels in a luxury hotel suite, for instance, differentiate it from a more budget-friendly space. From throw pillows to throw rugs, the more texture you can add to your space, the more upscale it will look. Want even more texture? Consider adding an area rug, but make sure it covers most of the floor to make your space look even larger than life.
- Large Statement Art
In many luxury spaces, a large statement piece of art is the focal point of the room. With the many different prints that are out there, or the option to paint your own canvas, you can create a statement piece without spending a fortune on specialized artwork. If you don’t have the budget for one large statement piece, create the same effect with several coordinating smaller pieces.
- Large Mirrors
Mirrors have a dramatic impact on your space, and can also make it appear larger. One large mirror strategically hung in your modern apartment home can upgrade the look significantly. This is one place where you might want to splurge to add some artwork around the mirror to make it more of a focal point in your home.
- Upgrade the Light Fixtures
Light fixtures that come standard in a home or apartment are often boring. Upgrade the light fixture with a customized piece, garage sale find, or cheap chandelier to make it seem more luxurious. If you scour second-hand shops and garage sales, you can find a beautiful light fixture at a budget-friendly price.
Less is more when it comes to designing luxury spaces, and you can make your space look more luxurious by removing clutter. If there are items that you do not use regularly, remove them from your home. The end result will be a more streamlined and cohesive look, all without spending a dime.
It does not have to cost much to make your home or apartment look luxurious. With these tips, you can have an inviting space that looks like it cost a fortune, without spending much at all. Get creative, and enjoy living life in a refined space.
