5 Tips For Making Your Apartment Feel Luxurious
Home decor and furniture can say a lot about a person and the atmosphere you’re trying to create in your living space. Perhaps you want to create a homely country-style feel in your apartment making your apartment fell luxurious, or maybe minimalism is your thing. One thing is common regardless of decoration style, and that is that everyone wants to have a little feeling of luxury in their space when they come home to unwind at the end of the day.
If you’re renting and you don’t own your place just yet, you might not want to splash out on expensive pieces of furniture and decor to create that luxurious feel. Or maybe you do have your apartment, and now you’re finally splashing out on that leather lift chair recliner you’ve had your eye on for ages. Either way, if you want to achieve a luxurious interior design vibe in your apartment, it can be done with a few simple tricks.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the simple ways to achieve the luxurious feel of a five-star hotel to your apartment.
It’s All In The Lighting
A luxurious ambiance can easily be achieved by tweaking the lighting in your apartment. By switching out standard lampshades and light fixtures for more unique and interesting ones, you can instantly add a classy touch. A variety of light sources can add depth to a room, so get yourself a couple of table lamps and place candles in reflective containers. Being able to dim lights also creates a luxurious atmosphere so you could install dimmer switches or else buy table lamps with a dimmer function. A large, interesting light feature can be a standalone decoration, too – meaning you hit two birds with one stone.
Place Curtains High And Down To The Floor
We often associate luxurious homes with high ceilings, and not all modern buildings have high ceilings nowadays. There’s an optical illusion you can use to your advantage. If you hang your curtains as close to the ceiling as possible, it makes your ceilings appear higher and, in turn, makes space feel bigger. For the extra luxe factor, be sure to buy curtains that hit the floor as drapes that are too short can end up looking cheap, which will not help in your quest for adding a feeling of luxury.
By choosing a color palette or scheme and sticking with it, you will create a feeling of cohesion in your apartment. Often a neutral color palette like whites and soft greys is a great way to achieve a luxurious feel as they attract natural light, which makes space feel more open. You can easily add a dramatic pop of color with your furniture and textiles or a feature wall.
Mirror Mirror On The Wall
Mirrors are a nice decorative feature, and you can get some truly unique larger mirrors, which will add a touch of luxury to any home. Mirrors are not only decorative and useful to look at your reflection in, but they also instantly open up a room as they help to create an illusion of a larger space. One tip to achieve this is to place a mirror opposite a window or opposite the room’s entrance to reflect light. Placing mirrors behind a couch, near a corner, or in smaller nook and crannies of your home will also help to create an illusion of a larger space.
Textures And Layers
Another way to create a sense of luxury in your apartment is to add textures and layers. Having pieces of furniture made from different materials like wood, leather, and glass creates a unique collected feeling rather than a bought look. Layering with decorative accessories like candles, houseplants, and rugs, throw pillows, and blankets in vibrant mismatched colors and textures can also add an instant touch of class and comfort.
Luxury Can Easily Be Achieved
So, there are a few simple tips to keep in mind if you want to create a luxurious atmosphere in your apartment when it comes to home decorating and interior design. Stick with a color scheme, use lighting and mirrors to your advantage and choose different textures and layers like floor to ceiling curtains, and you should easily achieve chic vibes in your home.
