40 Inexpensive Ways To Make Your Home Look Expensive
If you want your home to look luxurious, chic and very stylish, if you want your styling to seem exceptional, this guide is for you – we are sharing ideas on making your home look expensive without spending much money.
Stick To Neutrals
For a guaranteed sense of calm, stick to a neutral color palette in your space. Bright colors can quickly become outdated – today this one is popular, tomorrow that one. Neutrals rise above trends and are always in style, so you won’t have to worry about redecorating all the time. Besides, warm neutrals are among the most popular colors for decorating luxury hotels.

When in doubt, remember that less is usually more. A few chic, quality pieces will make your space look more elevated than an abundance of lower-quality items. The same can be said for decor—pick a couple of statement decor items to let sing and accent with just a few smaller accessories that complement your space.

A sofa, chair, throw pillows, and drapes that are all in the same fabric and texture will almost certainly make your space feel flat. Swap out bland throw pillows for a variety of textures and sizes to easily add dimension. Even if you don’t like bright colors, just adding in a few hues that are a slight variation of the neutrals you already have will liven up the space.
A statement rug not only brings everything together but also lays the foundation and really sets the stage for the rest of the room. An area rug adds much-needed warmth, texture, and color, and the larger the rug, the more custom and luxurious it will look. Even if you have a rental apartment with carpeting, adding a rug on top will help define different spaces and add that certain something.

Fool The Eye With Curtains
Many luxurious and expensive homes feature high ceilings and are flooded with natural light. Fool the eye and get the look by hanging your drapery and hardware as high and close to the ceiling as possible—never directly above the window frame. Add sheer curtains to really soften the light that comes in and fill the room with a warmth that is cozy yet feels expensive.

Buy Matching Sets For Your Essentials
Nothing looks more chic and neat than a set of matching containers on a vanity or kitchen counter. Using liquid soap in a dispenser and transferring cotton swabs from a box into a coordinating container elevates the entire look. It’s relatively inexpensive to make the upgrade, but the overall impact on your bathroom is enormous.
