One of the most common requests we receive from clients in regards to their bedroom design is for it to feel luxurious. We even stage bedrooms in homes on the market to have a more luxurious appeal because people respond to it so positively. Luxury isn’t about spending a lot of money, but rather surrounding yourself with beauty and comfort.
Making your bedroom more luxurious is easier than you may think. You don’t have to invest in designer bedding and expensive furniture. Just a few simple changes can make a huge difference and make you feel like you’re living in a five-star hotel suite – on any budget.
Here are some easy luxurious bedroom tips to try in your home.
Luxurious Bedroom Tips
Upgrade your bedding
The bed is the focal point of the room and the best place to create a more luxurious feel. Start with beautiful bedding. Soft sheets, a lavish comforter, and plush pillows are the epitome of luxury. You don’t have to spend a lot to get a luxury experience in this area. Stores like HomeGoods and TJ Maxx sell designer bedding at affordable, discounted prices, so you can have the five-star hotel experience without the huge price tag.
Add more pillows
Decorative accent pillows create a sense of coziness and luxury. Don’t be afraid to add several to your bed. Mix up the colors, patterns, and textures to make your bedding look more stylish and designer. Your bed will look even more enticing at the end of the day with all of those pillows making it look extra comfortable!
Decorate with beautiful textiles
Soft, glamorous textiles make a big difference in a space. Even just a few additions can create a more upscale look and feel. Faux fur instantly brings a touch of glamour, as do other fabrics like silk and similar alternatives. You don’t have to spend a lot of money here, either, to get quality. Place a soft blanket over the foot of the bed, hang curtains around the windows, and put down a plush rug to step onto when you get up in the morning.
Incorporate special touches
True luxury comes from feeling comfortable and special in a space. Treat yourself with creature comforts like candles, flowers (real or faux), and any items that you personally love. For example, if you love to listen to music, include a stereo or iPod dock so you can listen to music while you unwind, or set up a coffee bar and comfortable chair where you can enjoy a cup of coffee as you start the day.
Use soft lighting
Lighting can change the entire look and feel of a space. For a sense of luxury, opt for soft lighting in a bedroom. Avoid harsh lighting like fluorescents and keep the fixtures low; lighting that is above you will cast unattractive shadows in the room. You can add a dimmer, which is affordable and easy to install, to have even more control over the lighting depending on your mood and the time of day.
