Fancy upgrades to make your home feel luxurious
With time, home design styles change – maybe causing your living space to become outdated.
Wear and tear also takes a toll.
Luckily, there are many excellent ways to improve your house, whether you want to add more comfort, alter the aesthetics, or improve functionality.
Change your flooring
While hardwood or tile might give a more polished appearance, carpeting can lend a touch of cosiness.
Replace the carpet in your bedroom with hardwood or tile for a quick renovation and touch of luxury.
Now, hardwood can be a little challenging to clean and maintain, however the extra work is worthwhile.
Tile floors can give your property a fresh look and are easy to clean.

Add a reading room
This is an often overlooked but highly effective way of adding a personality to your home.
Don’t worry; you don’t need to have a huge number of books to have a reading room in your house. It’s more about creating a space with a bookish, erudite atmosphere.
And of course you can accumulate books over time.
You won’t need much room, but the more you have, the better.
You might turn a spare room into a reading room by installing bookcases and armchairs.
If you have an open floor apartment, you can turn one part of it into a reading space. Such a reading space can be a good focal point.

Go for stone walls
Installing stone walls inside or exterior of your home will significantly improve its appeal. The stonework is sure to wow visitors and family members, whether you choose to showcase sleek and modern brickwork or a rustic cobblestone design.
Stone is available in a wide range of forms, colours, and styles as well.
Upgrade your bathroom
Install a contemporary shower, with tiles for an opulent bathroom.
Why go specifically for tile showers?
They are a terrific addition to your house since they can be both attractive and easy to maintain.
If you want to go one step further, you can include a bathtub. Many contemporary showers go well with contemporary bathtubs.
Consider installing a rain-style showerhead. They are not only lavish but also an excellent way of saving water.
Go for smart appliances
Alongwith flooring and walls, you can also consider upgrading your appliances during your renovation!
Starting with bigger equipment like refrigerators, ovens, and washing machines is a good idea.
Smart appliances can reduce your power use (lowering your energy bills) while making it easier for you to go about your day.
Focus on kitchen appliances first
New appliances can make preparing food easier, more relaxing and less time-consuming.
Smart kitchen equipment will impress your guests, making them a great option for entertaining guests.
Some of the most common equipment that people generally want to upgrade are refrigerators, dishwashers and gas stoves.
Speaking of the kitchen, here are some kitchen design mistakes to avoid.
Invest in a premium counter/backsplash
The counters in your kitchen – and elsewhere around the home – should reflect the high luxury standard you have set for yourself.
So, which material should you go for?
In our experience, tile and stone are the materials that are most commonly found in luxury home backsplashes
Marble is another excellent choice.
Upgrade your windows
You will be surprised at how upgrading your windows can boost the value of your home.
For a start, new windows can be a great way to improve the look of your home.
Second, if you go for window treatments that allow in sunlight while being capable of blocking cold air, your energy consumption will reduce.
From an aesthetic point of view, you should consider decorative glass windows – they can add a character to your room that few other options can.
Worried about privacy? Here are window solutions that allow natural light while protecting privacy.
Get a walk in closet
According to many people, you don’t have a high-end home if you don’t have a walk-in closet.
These closets offer plenty of storage space and free up space in the rest of your home – especially in the bedroom and the master bathroom.
Finally, you can find everything – shoes, jewellery, make-up, clothes – in one place.
Get new mattresses
A luxurious upgrade you can make to your bedroom is a very comfortable mattress.
Most people don’t think about their mattress unless they have trouble sleeping, but a good mattress is important for your health.
A king size mattress will also give you plenty of room to move around and is perfect for couples.
It will make sleeping much more comfortable and is the perfect way to update your bedroom.
Add an electric fireplace
One of the easiest ways of adding character and luxury to your home is to get an electric fireplace.
You can choose from many different types of fireplaces and mantels, so do compare different models before buying. Make sure that the one you get matches your design choices and room interior.
