Looking for a way to inject some glamour into your home without breaking the bank? It’s no secret that the cost of redecorating can quickly add up, especially if you have a taste for the finer things in life.

Luckily, there’s plenty you can do to rejuvenate your home decor and create something truly special for you and your family to enjoy. Although you might not be able to commit to all of these ideas at once, if you slowly work your way through your home it’ll be well worth your time. Here are 7 ways to make your home feel more luxurious without going over budget.

  1. Install glass partitions and balustrades

Glass partitions and balustrades are a great way to modernise your home, giving it a feeling of sophistication and class. One of the many benefits of using glass is that it doesn’t block or obstruct light, allowing it to freely flow throughout your home and keep it feeling open and spacious.

While glass balustrades can be installed along your staircase and upper levels, partitions can be a fantastic way to break up an open-concept floor plan while still keeping the area a shared space. For example, a glass partition with sliding glass doors between your dining area and living room could be ideal for when both rooms are being used at once, blocking off the noise from the television but still allowing you to see all that’s going on in your home.

  1. Upgrade lighting

Lighting

Upgrading your light fixtures to something bold and modern can transform any room in your house, adding an exciting new focal point and elevating the space. Whether it’s your dining room, living room or bedroom, a new light fixture can take the entire room to a whole new level.

However, it’s not just suspended lights that do the trick. A fantastic new lamp can make a fabulous addition to your living room, adding to the decor and helping you set the mood after the sun goes down.

  1. Stick with neutral colours

If you’re investing in these new items for your home, you want to make sure they’re gonna be with you for the long run. While it can be tempting to splurge on something trendy and flashy, we recommend sticking to classic, neutral tones and styles that will never go out of vogue.

The other plus side to neutral colours is that no matter if you replace your couch, bedspread or any one of your pieces of furniture, its replacement will still match the rest of your decor and won’t look out of place or pigeonholed in.

  1. Add artwork

Artwork

Artwork is the perfect way to instantly elevate your home, and a large piece of artwork just looks and feels expensive. While filling up your walls with small, poorly framed artwork can look awkward or busy, investing in a single large piece for your living or dining area will be sure to do the trick.

For something more on the affordable side, we recommend checking out your local thrift stores or flea markets. There, you’ll be able to find big, cheap pieces of art that are sure to make a statement.

  1. Avoid clutter

There’s nothing opulent or glamorous about clutter, so use your weekend to get rid of things that you no longer use or don’t add anything to your home. Whether you sell them or give them away is up to you, but either way, you’ll thank yourself for it once you’re done.

Once you’ve completed this step, go out and buy some stylish baskets or storage bins to keep your belongings neatly organised and out of sight.

  1. Upgrade hardware

Hardware such as knobs and handles are often treated as an afterthought but then can have a huge impact on the way your home is perceived by guests. Whether it’s on your doors and kitchen cabinets or dressers and wardrobes replacing your dated and nicked old hardware with brushed brass or copper can make a world of difference.

  1. Add statement chairs

While buying entirely new living room furniture might be out of the question, buying one or two statement chairs is an affordable and chic way to build on what you already have. Not only do they add an air of elegance, but they also make more room for guests and ensure that everyone is comfortable when you’re entertaining.

Statement chairs are also a great opportunity to inject some colour into your living area without them dominating the space, or splurging on high-end pieces that would be too expensive as a couch.
