Often, people buy luxury home for sale and then end up feeling dissatisfied with their purchase. However, the fault is usually not with the home itself but with the decoration. You might spend a lot of money on the decoration of your luxury home but if it doesn’t suit your personality, if it’s not in keeping with your taste, then you’re not going to be comfortable in it. So consider the following tips when decorating your luxury home.
- Color scheme. The color scheme of your home is probably the most important thing about it because color is really useful in creating a certain mood. Lighter colors can create the illusion of space and make you feel upbeat. Darker colors can create a cozy atmosphere that just makes you want to sit back and relax. So depending on whether you use your home for work or relaxation, you can decide upon your color scheme.
- Simple vs. Rich Fabrics. When it comes to your upholstery and curtains, you can go with simple cottons and natural-looking fabrics or you can use something rich like brocade, velvet etc. If you’re really into rich fabrics then, by all means, use them in your home. However, keep in mind that a little bit of velvet goes a long way. You can probably just use these rich fabrics on one or two smaller pieces of furniture rather than the entire home. Another option is to use a simpler fabric like cotton for your upholstery but get throw pillows in silks and brocade.
- Carpets vs. Hardwood Floors. Hardwood floors can make a home look expansive and homey at the same time. But, of course, there’s nothing like plush carpeting to create that luxurious feel. Just keep in mind that carpeting is generally harder to clean and using it all over your home might be overkill, just like an excess of rich fabrics. Instead, you could have hardwood flooring and just intersperse it with smaller rugs in various parts of your home, such as under the coffee table or in front of your favorite armchair.
- Custom Touches. You can also introduce various custom touches throughout your luxury home, depending on what you think will suit your personality the best. If you love cooking, you’ll love the luxury of having the latest appliances and a granite countertop in your kitchen. If you love to read, you might like a built-in window seat overlooking your view. Floor-to-ceiling windows, hot tubs, saunas, koi ponds and outdoor kitchens are also possibilities for your luxury home.
