6 ways to make your home look lavish on a budget.

Desperate to update your home interiors but worried about the cost? Check out these six simple ways to make your home look lavish with minimal money required.

Before you start renovations, begin by decluttering the space and investing in tool boxes to organise your DIY equipment to help your project run smoothly. You’ll also need to make sure that you have the necessary extra materials for each task as well as protective sheets to keep spaces clean and tidy.

Upgrade your lighting

As any interior designer will tell you, lighting has the power to make or break the look of your room. Lighting is also key to setting your desired mood, whether you want to promote concentration or relaxation.

You can upgrade your lighting in several ways. Fit luxury-look fixtures to your hanging lights such as a chandelier or striking modern shade. Add floor or wall lighting at the entrance and along the hallway.

LED lights provide functionality and style to essential objects like kitchen cupboards and bathroom mirrors.

Be creative with paint

Paint doesn’t have to go on the walls – although a fresh coat or new colour is an easy way to bring a new lease of life to your rooms.

Using contrasting colours on your doors and skirting boards adds character, depth and dimension to the space, and instantly upgrades the design. You can paint other wooden furniture to achieve a similar effect, but be sure to use suitable paint for a proper finish.

Refresh your handles

As well as painting, refreshing the handles can re-energise doors and furniture such as cabinets and wardrobes.

Depending on the type of knobs you choose, changing the handles can also help to shift your interiors into another design style, such as from minimalist to Art Deco or contemporary to vintage.

Switch up your fabrics

One of the easiest ways to bring luxury to your home is to switch up your fabrics in favour of plush materials such as velvet and richly embroidered décor.

You can easily feature these fabrics in the curtains as well as cushions, blankets and rugs. The more adventurous among you might want to experiment with reupholstering old furniture in more modern materials. 

Add bold artwork

Do you want your interiors to pack a punch? Enhance the visual impact of each room by adding bold artwork to the walls. This could be one large painting or a collection of prints.

While colour will always help to liven up your décor, monochrome pictures and photographs can be a striking contrast to the rest of the room.

Introduce greenery

Last but not least, introduce greenery into your interiors. Bringing the outdoors indoors adds brightness and cheer, and will literally refresh the space by increasing the oxygen levels.

The best indoor plants for your home include striking species such as waxy-flowered anthurium, snake plants, and small self-contained trees like fiddle-leaf fig and olive trees.
