The subtle touch: 4 ways to add a hint of luxury to your home

The subtle touch 4 ways to add a hint of luxury to your home

The home is a place that should feel comfortable and welcoming. But this doesn’t mean it can’t have a touch of luxury, too! If you’re considering ways you can make your home feel more elegant then we’ve got you covered. It’s often about the smaller details, those subtle touches that leave a lasting impact without overwhelming the individual.

This means considering the four Fs: fabrics, features, finishes and fixtures. Because, after all, there are so many beautiful little things you can do for your home to give it that extra feeling of contemporary sophistication.

Here are three of them:

Metallic finishes are marvellous

There is nothing wrong with splashing your home with a hint of the extravagant. One of the best ways to do this is through metallic finishes. Brass, copper, gold, rose gold and silver are fabulous ways to give your home a sophisticated edge. For example, brushed nickel cabinet handles are one of the perfect ways to add a timeless luxury to your design aesthetic.

You may also like to choose a wallpaper with metallic hints, furniture like side and coffee tables as well as kitchen finishes that incorporate metallic finishes. Kitchen hardware with metallic finishes gives the space a really contemporary feel whilst being easier to clean than other materials – it’s a win-win!

Fabrics are truly fabulous

Your choice of fabric is essential to giving your home a touch of the elegant. You should always pay attention to the smaller details, including the fabrics you choose for softer furniture. Everything from cushions to rugs, curtains and pillow covers should be considered to complete a look of luxury in your home.

And, for better or worse, you are certainly spoiled for choice. Some of the most opulent fabrics include wool, silk and velvet. However, these can be expensive, so it’s important to consider your budget when choosing your fabric. If these styles do fall outside your budget then you may want to consider synthetic fibres that look and feel like the real thing (who’s going to know, really?). But don’t just go for the cheapest synthetic fibre because it mimics the real thing – there is still a difference in quality and you choose styles that really mimic the actual fabric.

Light up your life (via your home)

A statement lighting fixture can give your home a real splash of pizazz. A great conversation starter and elegant eye-catcher, a stylish lighting fixture epitomises contemporary style like no other home accessory.

What’s more, there are so many designs to choose from, with chandeliers being the most luxurious for modern homes. Why? Because they come in contemporary finishes whilst giving the home a timeless, beautiful aesthetic that amplifies the feeling of opulence. They are absolutely perfect for homeowners who love to entertain as they provide a marvellous centrepiece to a dining setting that will have everyone commenting on its charismatic splendour.

A feature wall for added flare

Designing a stunning wall that differs from the other walls in the home is a wonderful way to make your home feel more elegantly composed. Whether the wall contains special paintwork, a gorgeous piece of art or a range of ornaments is up to you, but it is sure to get tongues talking regardless of your decision.

Adding a touch of luxury into the home is something we can all enjoy. Not only does it make the space feel more opulent, but it is also wonderful for receiving visitors and enjoying your surroundings. Be sure to consider these top tips for doing just that – they will make a marked difference!
