Bringing that 5 star look into your living space
If you’ve ever dreamed of having a luxury show home but don’t see how your budget or current situation can allow this to happen then fear not; it is possible to bring the 5 star look into your home without spending a fortune.
In fact it’s much easier than you think. All you need to do is follow these tips:
Add A Bespoke Piece
Just one bespoke piece of furniture can transform any room in your home. You need to speak to someone who specializes in residential joinery. They will be able to help you identify the piece that works best for the space you have available and your budget.
The idea is to create a piece that is practical but catches your eye. This will draw the attention of anyone entering the room and immediately create the 5 star feel.
Upgrade Your Bathroom
White is perfect for a bathroom; it will remind you of your last stay in a hotel. Revamp your bathroom to include a glass walk in shower, white tiles and perhaps, if you have room, a Jacuzzi tub. Your bathroom should also be well lit. It will scream style.
Try to keep the towels and other accessories white or a similar pale color; this will enhance the luxury feel.
Your Entrance Hall
This is the first part of your home that you and visitors see. First impressions do count!
Take a look at the stairs and consider removing the existing balustrade. You can replace it with a stylish metal one or even an invisible glass one. Alongside this you’ll need mirrors to reflect the light and a centre piece. This should be the one thing that all eyes are drawn to.
Your centerpiece will reflect the style of your home but it doesn’t need t be set n the centre of your room. Choose a nice wall space and make sure your chosen piece is well lit; just like the artwork in a lavish hotel.
Cover Your Windows
How you cover your windows can make a huge difference to how your home feels and is perceived. Take your time choosing curtains and avoid the wooden blinds. They may be effective but they won’t help you get that 5 star feel.
This is one area where you shouldn’t skimp; if necessary get a professional to make the curtains for you. They need to fit the window and open to frame it; allowing light in and creating a stylish look.
The brighter your house is the larger it will feel and the more 5 star it should appear. Light is essential even if you don’t have a lot of windows.
You can bounce the existing light round your home through the use of mirrors and the strategic placement of lamps will help to give that light, airy feel.
It is very important to be able to move effortlessly between your rooms. Each room should be designed to serve its purpose and allow you to move freely round your home. This is similar to how a hotel designs its space and is exactly the look and feel you want.
