If you are about to decorate your home from scratch, or if you are looking for some affordable renovation ideas that will give your house a fresh spin, you will probably be looking for some practical solutions that will not cost you an arm and a leg. At the same time, you wouldn’t like any obviously cheap solutions. So, consider these 10 ways to make your home look more expensive without blowing the budget:
Invest into floor heating system
Heating system below your tile floors is not the most expensive investment. At the same time, it seriously boosts your home value and functionality. Kitchen, hallway, bathroom — any of those rooms will benefit from warm floors.
Use large tiles
Another way to make your home look more expensive is to use large tiles in all of the above mentioned rooms. The cost will be more or less the same as while using average size tiles, but the result will be way more expensive looking.
Get bold with wall paint
Bold wall shades can also give a more expensive look to your home. If, however, you are looking for some unobtrusive environment, consider going with at least one bright wall in your living room or a bedroom.
Maximise natural light in each room
This is not the quickest remodelling type possible — but if you have a chance you should really consider making your windows larger to let more daylight in.
Carefully highlight each corner
The importance of artificial lighting should not be underestimated as well. Make sure each of your rooms is filled with light, and pay your closest attention to task lighting — that is, light sources in each functional area of the room (desk, kitchen island, dining table, etc.).
Go with bespoke storage units
If there are any niche, turn them into storage units. The same piece of advice is applicable to unused space under the staircase (if any). All in all, customised storage furniture is an amazing idea to make your home look more expensive.
Stick to wooden furniture
If you can, stick to genuine wood furniture — this is one of the most durable and truly timeless solutions in the furniture market.
Choose your accessories wisely
Make sure your room accessories (for example, decorative sofa cushions, a rug, and curtains in the long room) have the same matching shade and ornament — if any, of course.
Use mirrors and glass furniture
Reflective surfaces make the room look brighter and more spacious, which is one of the best ways to make your home look expensive.
Mix different trends and styles in a room
This, of course, should be done moderately and with great caution. Just one vintage element in a traditional room (a coffee table or a chest of drawers) would be the best example to accentuate the interior.
