Stylish Details That Will Give Your Home A Luxurious Feel!

This post is provided by Stephen Marshall.

Everyone wants their home to feel like a castle but not everyone is part of a royal family. 

It is quite unfair, we know. However, there are more budget-friendly things you can do to spruce up your miniature castle and give it a more luxurious feel. It will feel great to have friends and family admire your ingenuity and flair for design and details. 

Without further ado, here is what you can do to make yourself and your home feel like a million bucks.

1. Use Molding And Trim To Round Out The Space

A lot of people use this little trick to turn a room from a basic box to an inviting space. Details like these give a visual cue that the decorator took every detail into account while arranging the interior. 

The most common types of trims you might want to incorporate are:

Baseboards – baseboards are placed at the lowest point of the wall and run the parameter of the entire room, they are not very expensive and with the help of a few online tutorials you can install them yourself. 

Casing – they are used to frame doors and windows and give the space a more elegant look.

Crown molding – placed along the ceiling of a room.

Chair rails – molding placed at the height of a chair and that runs horizontally around the perimeter of the room.

2. Design A Focal Point For Every Room

According to the experts at, another great way to give your home a luxurious and elegant ambiance is to highlight one design detail for every room. It draws the attention and makes the space look for thought-out. 

The best way to pick a focal point is to just emphasize an already existing architectural detail. Maybe it is a beautiful, old fireplace that you can add a new mantle to. Maybe it is a large window with a beautiful view outside and lots of natural light. Then you could consider adding a window seat and to accentuate its loveliness.

3. Hang Art On The Walls

Another classic trick is to hang some pictures on the wall. Not everyone has money to buy paintings although there are lots of very talented street-artists with very affordable and impressive looking work that could lend you a helping hand. Another option is to get digital prints, those are indeed very cost-effective and the best part is that with all the options you will have no problem finding something that matches the color scheme of the space.

4. Use A Warm Color Palette

What makes a space feel luxurious is an inviting ambiance. You will want to use colors that make you, your family and your guests want to spend time there, to feel like this is a great place to unwind. According to the research done in color psychology, warm colors such as red, orange or yellow are perceived by the human eye as cozy and intimate while cooler color like gray and green can be used to make a space look larger and induce calmness. So we recommend you use mostly warm colors with touches of gray or green in smaller spaces.
