Are you looking to update your home in 2020 luxury? If so, then you should be considering a much more luxurious outlook for your space in the New Year. Luxury is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also indicates quality and can last much longer than all of the basic high street styles that you generally come across. Allowing your home to be a luxurious space moving into this new decade.
And so, with that in mind, here are some of the key ways that you can redesign your home for luxury in 2020:
1 – Invest in Flooring
It may not cross your mind often, but flooring can have a massive impact on the aesthetic feeling of your living spaces. Therefore, the more luxurious your flooring then the more luxurious the feel of the whole room.
Luxury flooring can come in many forms and your choice in material will depend greatly on the room itself. After all, for example, tile flooring in a living room is not a conventional choice. Ideally, in living rooms, you should choose flooring that is solid timber and not engineered (i.e. laminate) in so much as possible. But, a mix between the two–with real wood surfacing and laminate beneath–could be possible. It depends on the budget that you have at your disposal for this endeavor.
2 – Window Dressing
The way that you dress your windows can say a lot about the luxury of your home. Plain, cheap, blinds may be all well and good. But, they aren’t exactly something that screams ‘luxury’. And so, for that reason, it may be worthwhile to consider options which do appease that aesthetic school.
As one of the biggest features in any space, dressing your window the right way can transform your space into a luxury room.
3 – Crown Molding
Do you ever see pictures of a stately home and admire the crown molding along the ceilings? If so, then why not create this look for yourself at home? If you boast high enough ceilings, then it can certainly be an added luxurious touch that takes your home into a whole new realm of luxury.
Of course, you don’t have to emulate the Edwardian crown molding that is so famous. A modern twist on the classic, simpler and with more geometric definition, can still provide the same overall effect. Without, it has to be said, looking mismatched with an otherwise modern home design. More simplistic crown molding designs are available, so consider your options before implementing this look into your space!
4 – Remove the Clutter
Clutter, mess and a build-up of ‘stuff’ is not luxurious. In fact, it can make even the most well-decorated of spaces look cheap and not cared for. Getting free of the clutter, then, is the way forward.
Even if clutter is unavoidable–you have small children who are messy, for example–you should have stowaway boxes on hand. This way, you can quickly and efficiently put the mess out of sight and out of mind when necessary. Having a set box or space for the mess also helps to ensure it doesn’t simply grow and expand, as it only has room to exist in a certain size box.
5 – Choose Luxury Furniture
One of the most important choices for any living space is the furniture. These are big statement pieces in many rooms, so you shouldn’t choose any old high street furniture in this case. Instead, it’s important to choose both quality and aesthetically pleasing pieces which will make the space and not simply take it up.
A trend which will be a rising star in 2020 is that of crushed velvet furniture. Both a luxury product as well as extremely comfortable, this will bridge the gap between utility and style in the new decade.
6 – Invest in Paint
Paint is the key component of any living space and for that reason, it is important that you don’t simply buy the cheapest can of paint available to you. Cheap paint looks exactly that, so this is always an area worth splurging a little extra money into if your budget stretches that far. As more expensive basics such as paint can add that foundation layer of luxury your home needs.
And, importantly, remember that more than most other decorating materials, you get what you pay for with paint. So, wherever possible, it is advisable to spend a little more money on paint.
Also, it pays to understand your color scheme and how the right colors can add to your luxury aesthetic. Purple, for example, is a great example of a royal color. So, exploring color theory and understanding the connotation behind different color schemes can really inform your paint choices. All of which can culminate in a much more luxurious home decor.
7 – Lighting
Lighting is a vital aspect of any home. For a fully luxurious appearance, it is important to understand that you need both luxury light fixtures as well as quality bulbs. After all, you can have the most luxurious light fixture in the world, but it can be ruined by a cheap, white light-filled, bulb.
For added effect, you can add multiple layers of lighting such as lamps, wall sconces, etc. to really elevate the effect. Although this should be balanced with the size of the room. A tiny closet with overhanging lights, wall sconces and a lamp would be a little too well lit after all.
Overall, redesigning your home for a more luxurious feel in 2020 doesn’t have to be as stressful or expensive as you may imagine. Make the changes one at a time and your home will be transformed into a luxurious space in no time.
