Looking For the Lux Life? 10 Simple Upgrades That Will Make Your Home Feel More Luxurious

June 3, 2022

Not everyone can afford to live in a penthouse or professionally decorated house. But that doesn't mean you can't make your home luxurious and dazzling for you and your guests.

If you want to live that lux life without breaking the bank, check out these ten super simple upgrades you can make in your home that will make you feel like a member of the 1%.

Upgrade your bedding

Everyone knows that crisp, clean feeling of sliding onto the soft hotel sheets on the comfiest mattress ever.

You can capture this feeling at home with the best bedding materials. Your family and guests will feel like they're sleeping on a cloud after you upgrade your suites to organic latex bedding.

You may think your sheets are perfectly fine, but you'll never go back once you make the upgrade. And having the best mattress isn't just about your comfort. It can enhance your bodily health and improve sleep.

Sophisticate the smell

Buy the expensive candles, plug in the air fresheners, and spray that Febreeze! Even if you aren't aware of it, the smell of your home impacts you and your guests' comfort.

Fostering a pleasant and calming scent in your home will create a luxury experience for all your senses, not just your eyes.

Try to use fresheners and candles with essential oils, as these will release relaxing aromas into the air creating a peaceful and cozy vibe every day. Using an air purifier or dehumidifier in your home can also eliminate unpleasant smells.

Use seasonal decorations

Swapping out your decorations every so often to go with the seasons will refresh your home and show an attention to detail that creates a lavish environment.

This upgrade can be as simple as having seasonal wreaths on your door or changing your bedding from light to dark as the weather gets colder. Use fall-scented candles when September rolls around, or put out floral hand soaps when springtime comes.

Incorporate nature into your home

Few things are as effective at upgrading your home as incorporating houseplants and flowers.

They bring vibrancy and freshness that nothing else can. And if you don't trust yourself with living plants, buy high-end faux flowers, and no one will be the wiser. Not only does some greenery elevate your home, but the plants will also keep your air cleaner by generating oxygen.

You can also buy affordable flower bouquets weekly if you can't commit to being a plant parent. Plants can brighten any home, and all of the poshest homes have natural accents, whether it's a vase of roses or a large ficus tree.

Light up your space

It's not about how bright or dark your space is, as both ends of the spectrum can be stunning. But it's about what your lighting looks like.

If you're still lighting your space with bland desk lamps and naked bulbs, this is dragging down your aesthetic. Look for uniquely modern lamps or stunning vintage lampshades. If you can, install a statement chandelier that will be the room's centerpiece.

Every light should be a decoration in itself, not just a tool for helping you see what you're doing.

Get personal

Personalizing and customizing items in your home is one of the best ways to foster a luxurious and comfortable environment.

Get your bathroom towels monogrammed, buy a customizable spice rack, or buy stools the exact height of your kitchen counter.

When you purchase things specifically designed or personalized for your home, everything will look like it belongs, and the aesthetic will flow effortlessly.

Ditch the plastic

While the insane use of plastic in society is harsh on the environment, it also cramps your style. Clorox bottles and Cheez-It boxes are not the most luxurious-looking items.

An easy fix is to use nice reusable bottles for your cleaning supplies, whether they're glass, metal, or just a more attractive plastic. Pour your olive oil and vinegar into cruets rather than leave them in the bottle.

Use cohesive storage containers to keep snacks in, allowing you to toss out the ugly Ritz cracker box and keep your food fresher!

Frame everything

When living in your teenage room or a college dorm, hanging unframed posters or taping up pictures is okay. But if you want your home to look luxurious and tidy, you should frame absolutely everything you plan to put on a wall.

Choose one frame style and stick to it, whether that's a sleek black, modern white, or baroque gold. The frames will create a beautiful cohesiveness making your art, pictures, and entire home look better.

Lay down plush rugs

Even if they're beautiful, walking on cold floors brings an air of discomfort into your home. But laying down plush rugs in the appropriate areas can add a cozy and luxurious feel to your home for both you and your guests.

Don't skimp when it comes to rugs, as you'll be walking on them every day. Find one that goes well with your decor and furniture and feels soft and comfortable to the touch. A gorgeous sheepskin or wool rug can elevate your home to a new level.

Organize the tech

As much as everyone loves technology, having cords running across the floor or visible power strips is a massive eyesore that sucks the luxury out of even the nicest homes.

Luckily, loads of tools and storage products help you hide the cords and organize the plugs, staying out of sight but still in reach.

Try to position furniture to block outlets you don't use often, and find colored cords that match your walls or floors to conceal them better.

Final thoughts

You don't need to pry up the floorboards and paint the walls to make your home feel more luxurious.

Everyone deserves a home that makes them feel like royalty, and they're proud to show guests. With these ten simple and exciting upgrades, you'll feel more at home in your own home!
