The hallway of your home is often the first room a guest will see when visiting your property. It is a visual introduction to your home. Taking time is essential in creating a stunning space can make your house feel downright luxurious and put together.

At the front of your home, you can also invest in paved stairs leading from the garden or a beautifully decorated front porch with plants, flowers and hanging baskets to create a fabulous entrance and give your house that all-important kerb appeal.
Choose a Mix of Textures
Adding accessories in the same material will make your space fall flat. Instead, mix up the textures with a variety of throws, cushions and curtains to create dimension and luxury. It can make a room feel more attractive and welcoming and an enjoyable space to relax or entertain.
Every element of a room is an opportunity to add texture. Flooring, walls, furnishings, objects and art are just some options to consider. Choose from hard and soft furnishings, shiny and matte, smooth and rough etc.

Bring The Outside In
Adding plants and flowers to your home is a great way to uplift any space. Not only do plants look luxurious, but they also provide many benefits for your health and well-being! Plants absorb many toxic substances and actually clean the air. This means you get improved air quality, reducing fatigue, stress and anxiety and boosting mood.
House plants are an easy way to add colour to your room and are perfect for statement pieces on dining tables, coffee tables or kitchen islands. Choose a plant pot or vase that aligns with your style for a creative way to update your space.
Ferns, palms and succulents are great for the moisture content of any room and add not just a focal point but great colour to your already vibrant home. Biophilic design is another on trend idea that interior design magazine and websites are raving about this year.
Refresh Your Doors
One great way to add a touch of luxury to your home is by refreshing your internal and external doors. A lick of paint can go a long way, and creating a statement with black interior doors against neutral hues can make your home look more expensive.
If you don’t want to make a big statement, even a fresh coat of white can make all the difference. Clean, white doors can create a luxurious, fresh feel to your home that can improve your mood and enhance the cosiness of your environment.
Updating the woodwork can make the colour of your walls stand out and by mixing and contrasting those colours your can give your room a new look without having to do a full renovation.
Create More Space
To make your home feel more luxurious, make use of open space. Rearrange furniture, decluttering surfaces and investing in some storage solutions can make all the difference for your home. A cluttered room can often feel messy, which is directly linked to a lack of productivity and motivation. Clean, organised and spacious rooms can help you relax and unwind while motivating you to keep it tidy.
Organising does not have to be functional. Using vintage pieces of furniture as storage will do two jobs, clear clutter and look fabulous at the same time. Throw away those veneered flat pack shelving units and go for a statement piece that adds style and form to your rooms.
