Luxury for Less: 3 Ways to Make Your Home Look Luxurious on a Budget

By following these three tips, homeowners can make their houses more luxurious without having to break the bank.

Living in the lap of luxury often comes with a high price tag. That’s especially true when it comes to home design—renovating or adding to a space’s existing interior isn’t something that’s budget friendly. However, there are ways to make your home look more luxurious without completely breaking the bank.

ESTATENVY scoured the internet and spoke to interior design experts to find the top ways that homeowners can make their homes luxury for less. By following these three tips, you can make your home more luxurious than it has ever been before without completely blowing your budget.

Shop at Outlets and Discount Stores

As POPSUGAR notes, outlets aren’t just for damaged goods and outdated items. Outlets and discount stores also carry floor models and overstock items, meaning that they can be a goldmine for people looking for a deal. From expensive looking fabrics to new pieces of furniture, these stores should be a first stop for those looking to decorate and re-design on a budget.

Don’t Be Afraid to Add Art

At the end of the day, artwork and photography are what gives your home a personality. Without those personal touches and accents, rooms have the potential to fall flat. Not all artwork that goes into a home has to be expensive, though. In fact, there are plenty of artistic options that can be found for incredibly low prices.

In an interview with HGTV, Orlando Soria, the creative director behind Homepolish, said, “Art is a great go-to for giving your space a more luxurious, unique feel. A lot of people are intimidated by art because it can be so expensive. But you don't necessarily have to spend a fortune on art. All of my favorite art comes either from artist friends or from flea markets and thrift stores. You can update vintage art by framing it in a fresh new frame."

Add a Fresh Coat of Paint

When it comes to interior design, it’s the little things that make a big difference. For example, adding a fresh coat of paint to your walls has the potential to make your space look fresh and new without doing any difficult work.

Angela Scalletta, an interior designer with Dwell Candy, said, “An easy way to create thoughtfully-designed space is a fresh coat of paint, especially in a light, neutral or white hue.”

Even if you’re operating within a tight budget, these three tips will allow you to create a more luxurious environment throughout your home. Ultimately, it’s that positive atmosphere that creates an elevated space.
