While most people dream of living a life of elegance and luxury, it is easy to think that life is not attainable when you have bills piling up and life stressors are overwhelming you. This does not have to be the case! Luxury is no longer something you can expect to experience once a year on vacation, it is a mindset. We all deserve to experience peace and luxury in our everyday lives, and it is possible to give yourself a high-end, stylish living space, even on a budget.
Self-care starts with your mindset, so why not curate your living space to feel elegant, opulent and lavish. Here are some tips on how to create a luxurious living space you will be proud to come home to.
Close your eyes and picture your last hotel stay. Think about the sensations you experienced. How did it feel? What made it so luxurious? Chances are you are remembering the feeling of the soft bed sheets on your skin, seeing the elegant lighting and decor throughout the room, the ensuite with fragrant soaps that awaken your senses. All of these factors were carefully considered with one goal in mind: to promote relaxation and boost your mood. Why not recreate this experience in your home?
Let’s start in the bedroom. Replicate this experience by purchasing high quality down comforters, pillows and sheet sets. When purchasing sheets, splurge for the set with the highest thread count, you will not regret it. Sleep is a primary component of good self-care, you deserve to have the finest, most calming sleep experience possible.
The bathroom may be one of the most utilized rooms in the house. A lot of self-care routines such as bathing, skin care and more are done in this compact space. Even the smallest bathroom can feel sophisticated and stylish with these tips. Glass is an important textile material if you are looking for a chic look. Swap out your shower doors for glass to create the illusion of more space. A variety of accents, such as wood, matte or cooper can go a long way in elevating the look of the room. Even if it is something as small as a wooden tray to go atop the counter. If you cannot afford any larger changes, try purchasing a candle or some stylish hand towels to refine your bathroom space.
The living room is one of the most fundamental spaces in the home, especially if you like to entertain guests. Some ideas for decor you may want to consider for a high-end, stylish living room space are large scale wall art and sculptures. A variety of art pieces in your home will add depth and create a gallery feeling. Incorporating different patterns, textures and colors on your walls is also a good way to add dimension to your space. Try painting an accent wall or adding metallics and mirrors in your space for an upgraded look. A few more ideas for creating a luxurious atmosphere are floor length curtains, window treatments and a large area rug atop a hardwood floor are some straightforward ways to add class to your home.
Lastly, the entryway to your home is a crucial spot for creating an elegant experience for yourself and visitors. This space is the center point for the outside world and your personal safe haven, so it is important to personalize it and curate a welcoming atmosphere. Creating a lobby-like space is a popular idea for those who like the over the top, opulent look. To achieve this, purchase some chairs and tables for this space. If your space will not permit, focus on smaller accents by installing unique light fixtures, such as chandeliers, wall sconces, side lamps, and art lamps
No matter what room you are focusing on improving, it is necessary to keep your living space clean at all times. Spend a few minutes each day picking up after yourself and do a deep clean once a week. Clutter will cause your space to feel smaller and make you feel stressed out when you look around and see things out of place.
