Want to give your home a luxe vibe? Check out these easy design ideas to transform your average Oklahoma City home into a beautiful luxury abode.
Elevate the home by adding molding and trim
Installing crown molding and trim to the chair rail, ceiling or baseboard is a great way to add elegance to a space. The kind of molding you install should reflect the overall style of the house and complement the furnishings.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get molding and trim installed. Homeowners who are more DIY-inclined can save a little more by installing these themselves.
Include modern lighting features
Getting extravagant lighting fixtures is a simple yet effective way to give your home a luxurious feel. The effect you want to exude with good lighting is a soft and elegant ambiance.
Start simple by adding a few tasteful decorative lamps in the living room and hallways. Big overhead pieces like hanging pendant lights in the kitchen or a chandelier in the bathroom not only add style but functionality as well.
Add artwork into the home
Art is a surefire way to give the home a more sophisticated air. It’s also a great way to show off your personality without seeming too eclectic. Art pieces are also wonderful conversation starters when guests come over.
Pick works that resonate with you and go well with the home’s overall theme. Layer them throughout the property to add coherence. You don’t have to look far for the right pieces. Go online or support local artists by shopping at art galleries. For more impactful statement artworks, take a look at the pieces at The Art Hall OKC. Add touches of modern art to your home by visiting DNA Galleries which offers everything from prints to paintings.
If you’ve got a knack for painting, show off your skills by creating something to display in your home.
Give each room a focal point
A focal point is something that quickly draws the eye when entering a room. The most common focal points usually highlight a room’s specific architectural detail like a fireplace or a large window that lets in natural light.
You can create a focal point by adding statement artworks like paintings or sculptures. If you want something that also adds functionality to the space, opt for bold pieces of furniture like a sofa or a dining room table.
Bring in some antique elements
Carefully selected antique elements add a certain grandeur to the property without making it feel overwhelming or dated. Antiques also give the house depth while maintaining its modern appeal. Choose one or two small pieces for each room to complete the look. If you’re new to antiquing, simply buy some decorative lamps or vases.
Oklahoma City is filled with great antique stores such as the 23rd Street Antique Mall, Antique Co-Op, and Decades Revisited. Remember to think carefully on how an item will contribute to your home’s aesthetic before buying.
Pay attention to the small things
Small details are crucial when it comes to perfecting your home’s luxury transformation. Focus on finishing touches that can really tie a room together like accessories, plants, hardware finishes, window treatments, and more.
Replace faucets, knobs, and drawer pulls with silver, gold or brass. Give your master bedroom a new look by swapping old sheets and comforters with silk or other luxe beddings. These small and simple details can give it that extra touch.
