Luxury living is the ideal for many home buyers, but not all homes have that “luxury feel.” Here are a few tips for making your home look more luxurious, but at a low cost.

1. Get Clean Surfaces

From countertops to cabinetry, your home will look luxurious if it looks well-maintained and properly updated. Countertops need to be pristine to attract the higher bracket of buyer. While your counters should ideally be granite or marble, the hottest countertop materials right now, the simplest thing you can do is simply clear them off and scrub them down. Clutter is not luxury, so keep everything to a minimum on the counters. If they need fixed or replaced, do so. Even a simple coat of the right finisher can be enough to add that luxurious feel.

A clean and bright white is a classic colour for luxurious homes and is still your best bet for giving off that high-end feel. There is a trick to knowing which white to get. It needs to look fresh and bright, not faded and old, so you might want to consider painting the bulk of your home in white before staging.

In terms of the paint itself, choose only high-quality products. They may be a bit pricier, but they also have better coverage, so you’ll end up using less. Plus, cheap white paint is the go-to colour for apartment landlords, and that is not a look or feel you want to emulate. Invest in good paint in order to get that right look.

3. Look At Your Windows

Windows that have great views should be framed with great window dressings, those without great views should as well. Look around your windows for mismatched blinds, faded curtains and rods that stick out. These will all need to be replaced with something more, well, luxurious. Consider unifying rooms with one kind of window dressing theme to give the space a more intentional design look. As for the window dressings themselves, go with the decor you have, whether that’s elaborate curtains or clean and simple blinds.

4. Give Spaces Some Texture

Texture provides a luxurious feel because it adds a tangibility to the design and sensibilities. In Edmonton, it also adds some warmth to a space, which is essential for selling in our colder weather. Warmth and texture make a home feel like a place you can peacefully relax and indulge.

Luxury is a feeling, which means you can make your home feel more luxurious with just a few simple changes. Doing so could help you attract a higher-income bracket of home buyers, and sell your home faster and for more money.
