The past year has seen many of us spending more time at home. Social distancing and national restrictions meant we’ve had to spend the majority of our time indoors this year, which led to making more use of our homes than ever before.
The lockdown provided us with the opportunity to do some DIY around the home and make those much-needed improvements that we’ve long been putting off. But what about upgrading your interiors and bringing some luxury living to your abode? It’s great having a functional space, but one that offers a high-end feel is essential during a time where we’re all becoming much more familiar with our own homes.
No one knows what 2021 has in store for us, but if we’re destined to keep spending more time inside, why not add a little splendour to our homes? We take a look at a few ways in which to bring luxury interiors into your decor choices.
Choose The Right Materials
When it comes to luxury interiors, it’s all about choosing the right materials for that high-end look and feel. Whether it’s velvet upholstery or marble worktops, choosing your materials carefully can help to bring that much-needed opulence into your interiors. Pay particular attention to the quality of such too. Not only will it add that extra touch of luxury, but you’ll also benefit from a longer-lasting look.
We all know colour plays a huge part in creating the perfect interiors and this is especially true of luxurious decor. Be sure to choose opulent finishes for your metals such as gold, chrome or rose gold for that high end aesthetic. Upgrading to such can make a huge difference to the look and feel of any room in the home, in particular, kitchens and bathrooms. From stunning gold taps to rose gold showerheads, it’s these small touches that will make the biggest impact to your interiors.
Maintain A Simple Colour Palette
While we’re on the topic of colour, be sure to stick to a simple colour palette. Opting for just a small number of key shades in any room is essential in creating a high-end look. Having too many different colours in one space can create a feeling of clutter and gives the impression of disorganization. For a luxurious aesthetic, it’s important to stick just four or five shades, plus it helps keep you on track with your decor choices, preventing you from straying from your desired look.
Choose The Right Lighting
Lighting is often the last thought for many when they are upgrading their interiors, but the right type of lighting can make or break a room, so don’t make the mistake of thinking lights won’t have an impact on your decor and be sure to consider your choice carefully. Creating the perfect ambience in the home can elevate your space into one that exudes luxury, hence why choosing the right kind of lighting is key for your interiors. Whether it’s a bold pendant or a statement-making shade, there’s plenty of ways to use lighting to bring opulence into your home.
The minimalist trend has long been a popular choice for those trying to achieve a high-end look. Keeping interiors simple is key to creating a luxurious feel in the home, so try and stick to the basics and opt for designs that feature clean lines and simplistic aesthetics. Not only will this help to minimise clutter, but it also gives any room in the home the illusion of extra space and a timeless feel that will remain on-trend for years to come.
Attention To Detail
Luxurious interiors are all in the detail, so paying close attention to the smaller elements of the room is key in creating a space that oozes luxury. Whether it’s something as small as changing your door handles, upgrading your bath taps or switching up your sofa cushions, it’s these tiny amendments that can change an entire room and turn into something completely new.
It’s no doubt that many have been using their bathrooms as a space of sanctuary during these past few months. A soak in the tub can help reduce the stress and anxiety that many of us have been feeling this past year, so renovating this space into something a little more luxurious is a worthwhile investment, not just for your home, but for your wellbeing too. Consider designs that offer both functionality and relaxation, to help elevate your bathroom into one that helps you feel truly tranquil after a long hard day.
