7 Ways To Make Your Home Look Expensive

Constantly surrounded by social media, we're the generation who wants everything to be Pinterest-perfect and Instagram-ready. According to Frances Hunt Furniture, millennials are always trying to improve and out-do themselves (and others) with home interiors by staying on top of trends or expressing personality through the home. There’s one problem – the budget is usually non-existent (which is where gift lists can be really handy!).

1. Rug it off

Filling the space with a rug not only gives it a more comforting feel, but gives it a luxury touch since they’re usually quite expensive. Brands like Dash & Albert, Nkuku and RugStore have plenty of large rugs to fill the room, or opt for a luxe sheepskin rug from Shepherd of Sweden or BAA Stool.

2. Let There Be Light

Add some warmth with candles and oversized lanterns in the home. They look great as a collection or alone against the wall. We love these large floor lanterns from Culinary Concepts, other great brands include Nordal and Cozy Living for a Scandi style.

3. Flower Power

Flowers in the home are always a sign of a good lifestyle. Treat yourself with fresh flowers every month but without the cost by adding a flower subscription to your wedding gift list. We love brands such as Bloom & Wild and Flowers By Passion.

4. Statement Sculptures

Sophistication doesn’t have to be boring, darling. Choose ornaments that reflect your style and these Habitat statues really make a statement. You could add an ornament that reminds you of your honeymoon or even a special day you spent together. Alternatively, vases are a great option to brighten up your shelves.

5. Simplify Your Style

A cluttered, over-accessorised space can look messy and disorganised rather than chic and sophisticated. Store away any bits and keep it clutter-free with storage baskets, jewellery boxes and shelving throughout the home. Opt for a natural-looking storage basket or brightly-coloured desk organiser from Block Design.

6. Give It Some Art

Decorative wall art is often expensive and can really make a difference when it comes to the look and feel of your home. Cheat with Spineless Classic prints for a budget solution and a great way to display your favourite novel.

7. Material Girl

Mix it up with lots of different materials in the home like mirrors, wood, metal and fabric. It’ll give your home a more balanced look and we love these mirrored trays from Notre Monde. It's a major trend at the moment and natural materials will last a lot longer and look nicer than cheaper substitutes.
