Four Handy Tips To Make Your Home Look Opulent

When choosing how to decorate your home in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and a reflection of your personality, there is a multitude of different decor styles that you can pick from. One quality that many people like in their house is a sense of luxury or extravagance that can give their home a certain character. If you don’t have the budget of a millionaire or a stately home, however, this is more easily said than done. Here are our four handy tips to make your home look opulent:


1. Wall Decoration

Nothing looks more ostentatious than a tasteful piece of art on your wall. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be a Cezanne original; you can easily buy a cheaper painting or just a printed reproduction poster. Investing in an ornate frame can do wonders, though!


2. Bookshelves

A quality wooden bookshelf or cabinet showing your impeccable taste in literature certainly makes a living room look more classy. People’s homes are usually dominated by a vast widescreen TV but a flawlessly fitted column of books in a prominent place certainly helps your home look more opulent. Just make sure your bookshelf is filled with Dostoyevsky and Bronte rather than Kate Price’s latest autobiography!


3. Fittings

A relatively inexpensive way to add that touch of quality to any living area is to replace your fittings. Small in size but big on character, the swapping out of a doorknob or a light switch plate with something ornate and full of character can give off an immense change in the feel of a room.


4. Floor Rugs

Covering your floor with a rug is a relatively inexpensive and quick way to change the look of any room. It doesn’t have to be the three-metre long skin of a Siberian Tiger with an open mouth at the end; the sky is the limit when it comes to choosing an ostentatious rug to spruce up those gleaming polished wooden floors. Turkish carpets are a classic as are faux animal carpets.
