Are you interested in making your home look more luxurious? If so, then there are a few possibilities that you can explore. Focusing on adding luxury touches and finishes to your home can have an impact on the end value of your home, something which will be worthwhile if you ever come to re-selling your home.

Below we share a few suggestions to adding a touch of luxe to your home.

1. Unique Aesthetic Features

First, you might want to think about adding features to your home that have a unique aesthetic. There are quite a few examples of this to explore and most of them won’t break the bank.

For instance, you could add a wall fireplace or look for a feature fireplace. We opted for a restored slate fireplace as a focal point in our main living space. Or, if you want to look a little bolder, you could explore a 360 degree fireplace. Artificial or not, it’s sure to stand out as part of your home. It could be just what you need to dazzle a future buyer.

2. Beautiful Flooring

You might also want to think about changing the flooring in your home. This is important as it obviously takes up a massive space and is key for making the right impression. Finishings like polished concrete, natural hardwoods and tiled flooring can all give a sense of luxury within a home.

We opted for a mix of flooring types in our home but the main downstairs living space has a herringbone finish with a wood effect tile to support the underfloor heating. You can also consider more appealing alternatives like engineered wood flooring from companies such as Flooring365. With this flooring, you can guarantee that your home will look incredible and create the individual aesthetic that you want.

3. New Technology

Alternatively, you may wish to consider adding some new technology to your home and making it a smart home. Smart controls for your heating, lights, alarms, appliances and general tech around your home. If you end up selling your home, these will be sure to appeal to a tech-savvy buyer.

You could also look into creating a smart wall in your home. These are completely interactive and can be used to control different parts of your home.

4. The Right Furniture With A Beautiful Theme

We have restored some older furniture in our home, creating feature tables and chairs which have certainly made an impression with guests. This is something to really consider and something you’ll find very rewarding.
