Have you ever gotten a feeling of elegance and sophistication when entering someone else's house and wondering what they did to achieve it? Sometimes, you can clearly say that certain furniture or carpet items are expensive, but at other times, you can't even put your finger on it. This can be something subtle like the scent, the way the light passes through the curtain or the way the owner strategically arranges the tableware.
Here's the good news: this isn't a mysterious spell or unreachable decoration talent. Even if you don't have the budget to buy every item recommended by high-end decoration magazines, you can still give a charming aristocratic touch to your home. It's all just aesthetics, research, and attention to detail.
If you are tired of seeing blank walls every day and you want to hang some artwork, you might want to resist the urge to go to Ikea and buy five art prints for $ 50. Not because they look bad (some of them are actually very creative), but if You want to give your home a luxurious feel, generic art cannot achieve it. The problem with mass-produced art is that it loses value once it leaves the store, whereas original art rarely occurs and therefore has value. Even if you don't have the budget to buy expensive paintings from famous artists, you can still find places that sell beautiful and interesting art. Look at local exhibitions to find small, rising artists, visit yard sales and thrift stores, or consider buying the works of freelance artists to show your support. A work of art that is hand-painted and attracts attention can reach more than a few store-bought art prints. But make sure you feel connected to the goods you buy. Be it a color scheme, the theme of the painting or the story behind it, something must resonate with you.
If you only have one mirror in the bathroom, now it's time to change it. Large wall mirrors placed in the hallway or living room can give a sophisticated touch to your home, whatever style of decoration you choose for the whole house. It doesn't have to be an extraordinarily beautiful or expensive mirror because even the simplest model can produce miracles. Besides being practical and luxurious looking, the mirror is big too creating optical illusions and make the room look bigger and brighter – which is the main feature of glamorous houses.
Kitchen & bathroom equipment
Decorating kitchens and bathrooms is often complicated because there is little space available for decorative items and mixing aesthetics with practicality is often challenging.

To add elegance, look outside the general options at department stores and choose a unique design with a glossy finish. In addition to the kitchen faucet, other details that can subtly change the whole vibe of the house include the shower, drawer knobs and door handles. There are many interesting designs and materials to choose from, but try to stay away from plastic ones because they break easily and look of poor quality. Instead, choose bronze, granite, and matte finishes.
Some decoration, but it has an impact
Do not rush to fill the entire house with items as soon as you move. Making a house look expensive is not about buying hundreds of decorations and stuffing them all in one place. It's about following a certain theme and strategically placing decorations, to achieve a certain mood. Not every shelf must have something on it. Some decorations can have an impact acting as centerpieces and tie everything together, giving your home a neat and sophisticated feeling. And remember, decoration won't impress anyone if anyone can get it. Instead of going to your local hardware store and buying an entire shopping basket filled with generic items, save that money and spend it from upscale stores, invest in items of collectible value, or explore antique shops for decoration unique who has an interesting background. An impactful decoration can be a great conversation starter!
Premium home scents
When someone enters your home, it takes all the sense to create a first impression. In fact, when they look around to see furniture and decoration in more detail, they already get an idea about the style of the house with the smell. The scent can play a big role in decorating your home – and not just because a few jars of candles look stunning. No matter how much you spend on expensive rugs and designer chairs, if the first thing you feel when you cross the threshold is the smell of takeaway, tobacco, burnt steak, or just the old stale smell, then that will make the house feel less elegant from the truth. Burning upscale candles or igniting some essential oils removes all these unpleasant odors, which are normal in homes that live in homes, but that can reduce the level of glamor. The scents of high-end homes are more expensive, but they pay off in the long run because they are more intense and you don't have to keep using them all the time. If you prefer to spend your budget elsewhere, no problem. Opening a window and letting in fresh air is also a good idea, or you can buy flowers if you prefer natural fragrances.
