How To Do Luxury Home Decor On A Budget


Do you want to live that luxury lifestyle but also need to live on a budget? You’re not alone. With the cost of living rising sharply, many people are looking to budget alternatives to help make life a little easier on the bank account. Luckily, there are plenty of options and home hacks that can transform any home into a luxurious chateau in no time. Perhaps not a chateau, but it’s easier to create divine vibes on a budget. Read on to find out more.

Luxurious Flooring On A Budget
There are a few things you notice when you first walk into a home – the colour of the walls and the quality of the flooring are two that stand out first. For instance, luxury vinyl flooring gives a home a fresh, pristine, luxurious vibe. It’s the perfect option for any house that needs a flooring refresh on a budget.

Luxury vinyl flooring is easy to maintain, is less likely to stain if you drop something on it, and comes in a variety of colours and patterns to suit any desired aesthetic. Who doesn’t like money and cleaning saving hacks in one? Many reputable suppliers will have great promotions and sales, enabling you to get your hands on great flooring at a great price.

Statement Furniture On A Budget
Furniture is one of the household items that seem to be extortionate to buy – plus, the waiting time for a new sofa, for example, is around 16 weeks in the UK and can cost well over £1,000 for a brand new sofa suite. Believe it or not, places like Facebook Marketplace or eBay have become the new place to look to find statement pieces of a budget. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of people selling furniture items that are often in mint condition for a fraction of the price of a new set of furniture.

Look out for people selling nearly new items for reasons such as moving home or renovating. These items often look like they’ve come straight from the shop floor, but always view the items before you bring them home. Similarly, charity shops seem to have become a haven for luxury furniture items on a budget.

Statement Decoration On A Budget
One of the best ways to create an illusion of luxury without spending much is through artwork. Art has become a huge interior design trend, and you don’t need to find hundreds of pounds to splash out on a famous piece of art to make your home look luxurious – marketplaces like Etsy and shops like Disenio sell prints on a budget that look amazing.

Artwork will add class and character, but be careful not to overdo it. Print overload can quickly make a room look tacky. Carefully select artwork to suit the aesthetic of your home. For example, in the living room, large, bold pieces of artwork can create a feature wall.

Minimalistic Is The New Luxurious
Sometimes, less is more, which suits all of us looking to make our homes look luxurious on a budget. Watch Kim Kardashian’s Vogue house tour, and you’ll soon realise that less can definitely seem like more. Neutral colours and minimal furnishing are the new trends – cream or beige walls with a sharp colour contrast can easily create a luxurious aesthetic with just colours alone.

You don’t need to spend thousands to make your home look and feel luxurious. There are tons of budget alternatives and ways of using colours and furnishings to create the desired look. Sometimes, even using storage hacks to remove clutter from a room is all that’s needed to transform it.
