7 budget-friendly tips to make your home look more expensive

Elevate your home’s interior appeal with a few simple, easy and affordable tips and tricks to create a luxurious space. 

Whether you are planning on selling your home and want to give it a bougie boost to attract more potential buyers or simply want to elevate the space you live in to make it feel more plush – with these seven tips, you will achieve just that, without spending a fortune.

Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty says we can give our homes a new feel with these few alterations:

  1. Neutral colours: Embrace a palette of neutral colours such as whites, creams, and greys to create a timeless and sophisticated aesthetic. Neutral tones also provide a versatile backdrop that can be easily accessorized with pops of colour, dramatic art or metallic accents.
  2. Throw pillows: Elevate your sofa or bed with plush throw pillows in luxurious fabrics like velvet or silk. Opt for bold patterns or metallic accents to add visual interest and depth to your space.
  3. Architectural texture: Crown moulding on ceilings and walls or striking wall panelling can really elevate a room, adding architectural detail and elegance and giving the room a sense of gravitas and grandeur. 
  4. Big art: Make a statement with oversized artwork or mirrors that command attention and anchor the room. Large-scale pieces create a focal point and add a sense of drama and sophistication to your space.
  5. Statement lighting: Illuminate your home with sleek and unobtrusive recessed lighting to create a warm, inviting, and luxurious ambiance. For a dramatic finish, add a statement piece because no expensive-looking interior is complete without a chandelier-style light fitting, whether it be a traditional or more contemporary design.
  6. Rugs: Luxurious rugs can make a home look and feel more expensive. Define and layer your space with area rugs that add texture, colour, and warmth. Choose rugs with rich patterns or plush textures to infuse your home with a sense of opulence and comfort.
  7. Gold accents: Incorporate touches of gold or brass accents throughout your home to add a touch of glamour and sophistication. From light fixtures to hardware and accessories, gold accents instantly elevate the look of any room.
