Our top tips on how to make your property look more luxurious

You don’t need a massive makeover to make your home look more luxurious. Here are a few easy tips to help you make your property look fancy without blowing your budget.

Opt for minimalism:

Always remember that less is more. Make sure to get rid of the items that you don’t need. When you eliminate the things that are not needed, you give the important items room to shine.

Select a neutral colour palette:

Choosing a neutral colour palette will give your home that trendy ultra-sophisticated look. If later on you decide to give the place a makeover, you won’t have to worry about matching colours too much. Some of our favourites are: beige, ivory, taupe and grey.


When shopping for accessories, furniture and decorations, you’ll want to buy classic and time-less items. Invest in key pieces to give your house the complete look that you’re looking for. Try switching out standard doorknobs on cabinets for more ornate ones, add a statement chair or fill the height of your space with a large  chandelier.

Play with layers:

A good way to make your home feel more luxurious is to add layers: books and candles to decorate the coffee table, a rug in your bedroom and a cosy blanket on your sofa will help your home feel more personal and complete.

Add more light:

Think about switching out your light fixtures for something elegant and bold. Add lamps to your coffee tables for a hint of glamour. Get a dimmer installed on your overhead lights to create a warm and cosy environment. Not to be forgotten, the classic table lamp offers never-ending stylish opportunities, no matter your aesthetic direction.

Look into mirrors:

Adding large mirrors to your walls will instantly open up a room and will create the illusion of a much larger space. Framing hanging mirrors will add class to any space.

Add a touch of flowers:

Flowers will instantly spice up your home and can be placed everywhere, from the bedside table to the kitchen counter. Choose one colour scheme for your property and use similar vases in different sizes where possible.
