Ever have those days when you look at your home and just go, “meh. Wish it looked better.” Well, you are not alone! There are many of us who want to make our homes look more lavish, cultured, and comfortable. But with outdated furniture, paint, flooring, and accessories, you may think it’s more challenging than it is and not worth the effort. On the contrary, there are many cheap and quick things you can do in your home to give it a little more sophistication. Below are some ideas that can help you accomplish your dreams of making your home look better.
Spruce Up the Floors
The floors in a house are very important; they can either make or break the look of a home. Even though replacing floors is extremely expensive and not many have the money to do so, there are cheaper ways to improve their look. If you have vinyl or linoleum flooring, there are many ways you can change your flooring, and can be as simple as painting it into more sophisticated colors or designs. If you have wood flooring, a great way to make your room look better is to add a light colored carpet to make the room look bigger.
Show Off Your Textures
Although it may seem like a forward thinking idea, using accents in your home that are the same texture will make it feel flat and boring. A better idea is to swap out the dull pillows and accessories that you have with a variety of different textures, as well as switching out your curtains. Having all of these different yet cohesive textures, that are either similar by color or design pattern, will make your space look more visually interesting and lavish. Switching up the textures will especially have more impact if your major furniture and walls are in neutrals, making the bold colors and textures of the accessories pop and take center stage.
Decorate With Fresh Flowers
Decorating with flowers is a great way to bring in some of the freshness of outside and liven up your space. These bouquets doesn’t have to be extremely expensive and make your bank cry out in pain, but having a fresh bouquet of flowers is a great way to make your home look more beautiful. Putting them in a nice neutral colored vase also adds more pop for the color of the flowers. Another good idea is to get a bigger bunch of flowers and split them up into smaller arrangements and put them in different rooms. A great thing to remember is to purchase flowers that are in colors that complement the colors that are already in your home. For example, if most of the color in your home is red, it would be good to get flowers in violets or oranges.
So, if you want your house to look as sophisticated and fancy as a Miami luxury condo, these great ideas will help you achieve this. By mixing it up with textures, displaying some fresh flowers, and updating your floors gives sophistication to your home that was lacking before. All ideas are easy to do, especially if you are really great at DIY, and can be done on a budget. So, why not mix up your home and add a touch of class?
