1. Plan, Plan, Plan!
When it’s a luxury design, the most minimal expectation is that it is functional. A lot of time is spent planning before the actual work begins. So, think about the most common scenarios played out in your everyday life and envision your space to meet all those requirements. Figure out your personal choice of design style and keep it consistent in all the rooms.
2. Keep it clutter-free
One of the subtleties portrayed in Luxury Design is the expanse of the space. But no matter how big of an area you have, any clutter would only highlight the clutter. Not the design. So, keep your space as clutter-free as possible. In areas that tend to collect mess, plan storage areas so that it is easier to put away unwanted things.
3. Make it large
When using any design elements like furniture, rug, or wall art, choose to use larger-sized items instead of using a cluster of small items. Reiterating the previous point, avoid excess small objects. Using larger elements in an area makes the space appear bigger.
4. Color scheme and Consistency
Maintain consistency in your overall color scheme to make the design cohesive. Using different colors and themes in every room can be a bit jarring. Use a sophisticated neutral palette in the backdrop and highlight design elements like a feature wall, throw pillows, and accent furniture. If your intention is to create a bold dramatic look, stick to one or two bold colors. Work with the color’s hues and tones to create a balanced look. Do not use too many bold colors on the walls. This makes the space look too busy.
5. Abundant lighting!
Using layers of lighting adds depth to the design. Use a good amount of ambient lighting for overall illumination that makes the space appear bigger. Adding task lighting and accent lighting creates more interest by highlighting sections of spaces.
6. Focal point
Have a statement feature in your space that grabs your attention and draws the eye. Highlight the best feature of the space which can be anything like a feature wall, furniture, mirror, or lighting.
7. Luxury layers
Combine layers of textures and materials that feel luxurious and stylish. Use fabrics that portray luxury, for example, velvet, silk, and faux fur, and materials like glass, marble/quartz. Especially, when using a muted color scheme, highlight the textures to add more depth to the design.
8. Floor to ceiling drapes
Here are a few tips to make your windows look bigger and more luxurious.
- Use curtain rods 8″-12″ bigger than the windows.
- Considering the folds and the pleats, make the curtains look fuller by using more fabric. Use 2 – 2.5 times the width of the window for the fabric.
- Make the windows appear taller by hanging the curtains higher. Closer to the ceiling the better. Curtain rods should be at least 6″ above the window frame.
- Let the curtains touch the floor for the full length.
9. Metal accents
One of the simplest ways to add a luxury look is to introduce some metal accents. Choose metal finishes like brass or chrome for cabinet hardware, lighting, faucets, and decor. Do not go overboard with the metal finishes. Use sparingly to add a touch of glamor.
10. Natural elements
To instantly transform a dull space add some natural elements like plants which bring in some warmth and coziness to a space. Use plants or flowers in places like entryways, empty corners, and bookshelves. Know your interior style and keep it cohesive by using the right planters and plants.
