We all want our homes to be the most appealing spaces they can possibly be. These are the spaces that we spend most of our free time in and it makes sense that you’re going to want them to look and feel great. Of course, over time, many of us let our first homes become worn and run down through wear and tear. Every now and then, you should take some time to dedicate to making your home feel truly luxurious. Here are some areas of focus that can help you to achieve this goal, making your living space one that you truly look forward to heading back to.
The first step towards a luxury feel home is to make sure that you don’t have any clutter. If you look at luxury hotel rooms, rooms in design magazines or rooms on Instagram and Pinterest, you’ll notice that they never have unnecessary items or mess lying around. To declutter your home, make sure to go through all of your belongings and sell, donate or recycle those you don’t want.
Having a choice of lighting in your home can help you to set the ambience and atmosphere of each room throughout the day. It’s important to have plenty of natural lighting in your home so that you can regulate your sleep-wake cycle and feel active and bright throughout the day. However, when it comes to the evenings, you need to have a range of lighting to choose from besides the large, bright, main lights in your space. You may want to consider installing dimmer switches, that give you complete control over the level of lighting. Alternatively, you might want to have a choice of different lamps with glowing, soft light bulbs.
Have you ever noticed the nice smells in luxury hotels, spas and resorts you might have stayed in in the past? Places like westin hotels & resorts use air and scent diffusers to spread delicious and enjoyable scents around their spaces. You can do the same in your own home! Consider different scent options. From scented candles to reed diffusers to air diffusers. Of course, if you opt for candles, make sure that you monitor them whenever they are lit.
Consider a Feature Wall
Feature walls can make your home feel more high end. A feature wall is one wall that has a different colour paint or a wallpaper print that differs from the other walls. It generally works best when you have neutral or pastel toned walls with one bright and bold feature wall. If you decide to go for this look, you can opt for a DIY approach or you can hire a professional painter and decorator for the day to complete the work to a high standard. If you’re using paint, make sure to invest in a few paint samples to use on the wall you’re planning to paint. This will give you an accurate idea of how it will look once it’s dried and in the light that hits the wall.
Hopefully, some of the information above should help you to give your home a truly luxury look and feel!
