Read on for those fantastic tips and then call us at (310) 373-0021 if you are interested in buying or selling a home.

1. Get rid of clutter

This tip is not only affordable, it can actually make you money. One of the easiest ways to make your home feel like a luxury home is to get rid of the clutter. This includes accessories, electronics, and anything that makes a room feel busy. It may even involve getting rid of furniture you don’t need, such as large foot rests or extra coffee tables. If it does not have a function and get used regularly, then it can go. Have a yard sale to make a few bucks off of the items you are getting rid of.

2. Focus on your window treatments

One of the most cost-effective ways to make a home instantly feel more glamorous is to invest in window treatments. You can switch out your current window treatments with high-end fabrics or unique textures. If you get rid of cheap blinds and add your own draperies, you may be shocked to see what a difference it makes.

3. Light up your space

Changing out your lighting does not cost much but it can make a big difference in a number of ways. First, the actual light fixtures you choose can be beautiful and add a touch of glamor. Second, adding more light can help highlight the glamorous areas of your home or that one special piece of art you have.

4. Make your home lush

Bringing in natural elements like plants and flowers is a great way to make a home feel lush – which can help make it feel more luxurious as well. Get a unique decorative vase at a local thrift store, then add flowers or greenery. Next time you walk into a luxurious home, pay attention to the plants and flowers in the space.

5. If you can’t replace, reface

If you have elements of your home that are less than luxurious, but are too expensive to replace right now, consider refacing them. For example, do you have flooring that has seen better days? Cover it up with a beautiful area rug. Do you have cheap cabinets in the kitchen? Make them look more luxurious with a coat of shiny paint.

These are just a few of the ways that you can take an affordable home and make it feel more luxurious. Of course, you have to start with the right home in the first place. You can find out more about how to find that perfect home by contact Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at (310) 373-0021.
