Transform your living room with these simple tips to add a sense of luxury to your home
What defines luxury cannot be pinned down to one particular definition but rather to a hedonistic ideology of a lifestyle that exudes opulence, comfort and elegance. Incorporating a sense of luxury into your home design is therefore more about the feeling of a space being well put together rather than creating a fusion of extravagant items. Here are a few ways that we feel you can create a luxurious home living area.
Five Ways to Create a Luxurious Living Space
1. Define a Style
Creating harmony throughout your home design is one of the most important design decisions you can make for your home. Truly understanding the direction you are going to take helps to simplify the design decisions you will make for each room that all tie together to create a unified space where rooms compliment each other and tell a story.
Nothing is more distracting than clutter in a home. By removing unnecessary items such as excess books, furniture and décor items allows the main heroes of the living room design to stand out.
Create specific selections of these items to aid your overall design style that you’ve chosen for your home. This allows for continuity and a harmonious end result.
3. Create Space
One of the greatest signs of a luxurious home is the correct utilisation of space. This doesn’t mean that you need a large living room in order to do this.
Consider the placement of furniture pieces to allow for flow through the room. As an example, this can be through the use of two occasional chairs paired with a sofa rather than having an additional large sofa that may block off the room. Another way to manipulate space is through the use of mirrors and glass. Mirror reflects light to create the illusion of more space while glass allows for joinery to have depth and when used as a room divider or door, it creates privacy and sections without closing the space off entirely.
4. Prioritise Lighting
Lighting is a fantastic tool that can be utilised in a multitude of ways to create feelings of luxury. One can use it to illuminate certain spaces such as art works or design focal points like feature walls or architectural details. This will draw the eye of anyone in the space and create a conversation.
Light is an important wellness factor to consider when designing your living room. Try to use natural light where you can in conjunction with reflective materials such as glass, metals or using lighting that matches natural light. When using artificial lighting, utilise muted light tones that are soft and mimic natural lighting.
5. Fine Finishes
Create textural intrigue by using a variety of materials and finishes. This can be from a combination of soft furnishings to wall and furniture details. Through the use of contrasting textures, you can create depth to the room. An example of this would be to use velvets, furs and knits.
