#1 Lighting

Changing up the lighting in your space can make it look bigger and more lavish.

A colorful chandelier can make your room seem more polished.

Adding a statement light fixture is always a worthy investment. It creates a focal point in a living or dining room and elevates the space.

If you're looking for an extra affordable upgrade, consider buying a simple drum or cylinder lamp shade for your existing lights

Updating tired lampshades and light fittings is another easy way to give any room an instant lift.

#2 Mirrors

Create a mirror wall to make your space look even larger.

The type of mirror you buy may depend on your space's size.

Hanging decorative mirrors is an easy and inexpensive way to instantly change the look of any room. They can reflect light and increase visual square footage.

Use a series of mirrors to create a statement 'mirror wall.

#3 Accents

An accent table can help you to upgrade a space in a stylish and practical way.

A great way to mix up a room is to fill tiny spaces with something that serves a purpose, such as a small accent table

You can decorate these tables, too.

To add a touch of elegance to your room, consider placing a metal accent table alongside or in between chairs

Natural Light in Living Room

#4 Windows

Hang floor-to-ceiling drapes if you want to add a sense of luxury to your space.

Floor-to-ceiling drapes can make a room look luxurious and rich.

Curtains and drapes really make a space look finished.

Hanging curtains from the ceiling helps to enhance the visual height of a space by drawing the eye upward. Opt for a light, sheer fabric to increase the amount of natural light

To achieve this look you don't have to have custom curtains made buy panels that are longer than you need and trim them from the bottom.,

#5 Flowers

Freshen It up With Flowers

Fresh flowers can instantly lift the mood of a room; the bigger the bouquet, the more luxurious the look. 

Make sure any bouquets you display are not sparse, but rather full and lush. 

A big, bountiful bouquet of flowers on a coffee table or mantle adds instant class. 

It is all about how you arrange the flowers and the vase you arrange them in . 

First, separate the bouquet by stem type then create several small arrangements to spread around your home. The time is minimal, but the impact on your home is monumental.

If there really isn't anything you like at the flower or grocery store, take a wander outside and cut a few trimmings off a tree or plant then place it casually in a table or floor vase. The greenery will really brighten the space.

#6 Bedroom 

Make your Bedroom Look More Luxurious

Incorporate a rug. Adding texture and warmth to your bedroom is one of the easiest ways to boost its style factor. Whether you're partial to florals or understated designs, like jute, a chic rug can pull your bedroom together in an instant.

Display art. Show off your style with a statement piece of artwork, whether it's a sculpture, photograph, or colorful painting. While it can certainly be displayed on a wall, leaning your favourite piece against a wall can be just as powerful.

Overfill your throw pillows. There's something so luxurious about plush, overfilled throw pillows, which go a long way in transforming your bedroom from "everyday" to a bonafide retreat that emulates the most sumptuous of hotels.

Add a hanging light fixture. The boob lights have got to go. Replace them with a statement-making hanging light or a glamorous chandelier. 

Rethink your nightstand.Hide some things away in a drawer; display small items in a beautiful tray.

Focus on the statement pieces. A dark wood bed frame; a gorgeous gilded dresser; a velvet armchair each bedroom has its own centerpiece, but make sure it's the room's focus. Don't clutter the room with too much furniture, instead letting each piece stand on its own.

Keep the floor empty.: A cluttered bedroom never looks luxurious, so keep the floor clean and orderly that means no stacks of books and piles of extension cords, either.

Reorganize your vanity. A cluttered vanity can make your whole bedroom look messy. Now's a good time to buy some makeup organizers

#7 Bedding

Mix & Match bedding sets

Rather than sticking to a matching bedding set, get creative and mix and match your patterned and solid sets to create an entirely new look in the bedroom. 

Layer colours, patterns and pillow shapes along with comforters and throws to create a unique, cozy and luxurious bedroom.

#8 Rugs

Update Your Rugs & Runners

Update soft furnishings such as rugs and runners. Opt for furs in Winter for a cozy feel and consider jute or cotton pieces for the warmer months.

Make sure to always include a non-slip backing to any slippery fabrics for safety!

#9 Natural Light

Natural lighting is one of the hallmarks of high-end home design as it has the power to completely change the mood of a room. 

If your home isn't awash with natural light, opt for soft, warm lighting that will create an inviting glow instead of harsh, fluorescent bulbs. 

#10 Linens

Refresh Your Linens

One of the best things about a luxurious hotel bedroom is the vast, crisp, clean sheets. So if your goal is to recreate a mini oasis at home, start with a sheet makeover.

Start with pure linen sheets, which just get softer and softer the more they are laundered.

#11 Wall Art

Add Some Wall Art

Art doesn't have to cost a fortune.

When chosen thoughtfully, the right wall art can give so much not only to a room but to the character of your home. 

One of the most basic principles of interior design is that every room needs a focal point or a single design element that will instantly draw the eye into the room and give the viewer a sense of what to expect. 

A great piece of wall art could easily fulfil this position.

#12 Greenery

Use Green Throughout Your Space

Did you know that the human eye is most comfortable with the color green? 

Your rods and cones absorb more green than any other color in the spectrum, and it puts you at ease. 

Opt for your own kitchen victory garden with fragrant herbs such as rosemary, basil, and thyme plus you can cook with them! 

#13 Pillows 

Comfort & Elegance

Pillows throughout your home serve two purposes. 

One, if they are chosen correctly, they can really punch-up the elegance factor. 

Two, they provide your guests with a little extra comfort on the couch and offer a cozy, layered feeling to your rooms. 

The comfort aspect speaks for itself, that is if you choose pillows that are large enough to rest on, and soft. 

Speaking of size, you want to avoid the standard 12 to 18 inches for a throw pillow. Instead, choose something larger, such as a 22-inch pillow cover stuffed with 24-inch inserts. 

Large, overstuffed pillows create a very plush, elegant appearance and don't skimp on the pillow inserts, down-filled is the only way to go.

These 13 insider secrets will allow you to give your home that luxurious feel and surprise your visitors.
