One of the other things that many families do in January is a new budget for the year. With tax season at the end of January, it is a time to think about money and spending, and maybe to plan some home improvement projects for the coming year.

Here are some tips for things you can do to make your home look more luxurious without spending a fortune.

Cover Your Windows

Installing window dressings ensures privacy and adds elegance to your home. Incorporate natural silk, cotton, and linen, for a high-end look. Try wood blinds or bamboo shades, if you do not like curtains so much. Avoid using flimsy, unlined materials as they let in light and may appear cheap.

Consider Crown Moulding

Crown moulding completes a room by bringing together the walls and the ceiling, thereby it offers a classic aesthetic. Crown moulding is affordable to suit any budget.

Luxury vinyl flooring

Vinyl flooring has come a long way in recent years. If you prefer the idea of a hard floor insted of carpets, but solid wood or stone is beyond your budget, then vinyl could be an alternative. Luxury vinyl flooring offers alternatives which realistically mimic the finish of stone or wood. It has a realistic look, combined with textures replicating the real materials.

The composition of luxury vinyl flooring features vinyl 100% or it has limestone/vinyl mixture. The thickness of luxury vinyl flooring has four layers including:

  • A solid backing layer
  • A clear film layer, which protects from harder damage, such as tears and rips
  • A photo-realistic design print of the wood or stone you are replicating
  • A top layer of Aluminum oxide preventing shoe scuffs and scratching

Another very important thing making luxury vinyl tiles distinctive, is the shape of the individual pieces. LVT comes in plank shapes, replicating solid wood flooring.

Customise Lighting

Homes can be built with lighting that lacks style. If you wish to give an enhanced look to your home, replace the lighting without breaking the bank. Go to auctions and visit second-hand stores to find some unique floor and table lamps for each room. It will add luxury to your space. 

Personalise Walls

Create a focal piece with stunning and eye-catching art. It need not be expensive. Create a one-of-a-kind personalised look with a piece that you have chosen on your travels or perhaps a painting done by somebody you know

Place Flowers 

Incorporating floral arrangements and adding rocks, shells or other natural objects offers a finishing touch to your space. If you have natural light, add in real plants rather than artificial ones – they will add oxygen and maybe perfume to the room as well as improving the aesthetic. There are many low maintenance plants if you are not naturally green-fingered.
