Redecorating your living space is the perfect opportunity to make things exactly the way you want them, designing and planning to meet your strict tastes and preferences. Perhaps, you have always wanted to add some glamour to your space, but always thought it would be too expensive. This doesn’t have to be the case! With just a few simple changes, it is easy to add a touch of luxury to your living room, while staying firmly in a budget. Read on for our top tips, and get started transforming from cosy setting to seriously chic!
Make the most of rugs
Whether you have cheap linoleum or expensive real wood, any floor can be instantly perked up by adding a good quality rug. Not only will this brighten up any room, but it can also add much-needed warmth. You can also choose to make it a real investment piece, and your budget determines the size. We would recommend getting the most expensive you can afford. The quality will really show, and this will make all the difference to a luxurious feel.
Pick your curtains
Just as rugs make a difference, investing in the right curtains can transform the look of a space. Made-to-measure curtains in a good quality fabric will warm up the room both physically and aesthetically and can make the whole area look far more expensive and glamorous. These can be a pricier option, but investing in made to measure curtains will ensure a perfect fit, just adding that touch of class and elegance which standard sizes directly cannot measure up to.
Consider the colour scheme
Certain colours can help to raise the level of a room instantly. As a general rule, classic colours such as creams and greys can look very classy and sophisticated when paired with strong jewel colours such as strong reds and royal blues. Take into consideration the amount of space you have, the height of the ceilings, and the overall impact you are looking to achieve. Working with an interior designer or creating a mood board can help you to see which colours work together and catch your eye.
Be bold with artwork
Artwork can be the finishing touch for a room, and it is vital to pick elegant and sophisticated pieces which bring the place together. By picking out key colours and images, you can help pull the overall look together and add an extra warmth which also helps to bring out your personality and personal preferences, bringing them to life in your space.
Consider your ornaments
There is a balance between picking the right decorations for a space and risking a visual finish which appears overcrowded. Choose pieces carefully, allowing them to tell a story and reflect your interests. It is also best to invest in high-quality pieces—better to have a few expensive favourites than lots of cheaper options which you don’t absolutely love. Choose wisely, and you will make your space more luxurious and comfortable, as well as feel special.
