6 Ways to Give Your Bedroom a More Luxurious Look

We all want to have picture-perfect bedrooms that look like they belong on a reality tv show or Pinterest board.

Alas, achieving such a luxurious look usually requires a luxurious budget. Dreamy hotels and designer apartment spaces don’t come cheap. But with a few expert-approved styling tricks, you can easily elevate the look and feel of your bedroom.

If anything, incorporating a few luxury details into an otherwise clean and minimal space will help you achieve a more tasteful look that isn’t over the top. So, without further ado, here are six ways to give your bedroom a more luxurious look – without emptying your wallet.

Start by Cutting the Clutter

One of the first and most important steps to improving the look of your room is to eliminate all the unnecessary clutter that’s lying around. After all, no matter how many expensive interior decor pieces you put in, your money is all but wasted if those pieces don’t have the opportunity to shine.

Well-designed expensive spaces usually feature clean, unobstructed floors. This is a major step towards creating a more luxurious space. Once you’ve gotten rid of anything that doesn’t add value or functionality, you can consider adding a fur rug or carpet. However, a completely flush floor isn’t a bad idea, either.

Upgrade Your Lighting

Your next step should be to ditch the fluorescent bulbs and opt for a stylish hanging light fixture instead. From chandeliers to drum-shade fixtures to pendants, there are a variety of great options out there which greatly surpass the value of a standard bulb.

If you’re looking for a great selection of affordable and stylish lights for your bedroom, be sure to take a look at Pagazzi ceiling lights. Here you can find everything from opulent pendant ceiling fixtures to futuristic flush ceiling light rings and the best part is that they won’t cost you a fortune. Fast and affordable shipping comes standard for extra value.

Refresh Your Bedding

As the name would suggest, your bed is a key element of your bedroom, which is why the right bedding is so important. A simple fur throw blanket can add a ton of style and opulence to your room. Pair it up with a few extra pillows and a minimal monochrome bedsheet and you have a recipe for success.

Add a Statement Piece

Now that your room is prim and proper, it’s time to add a statement piece to fill the space. Whether it’s a large canvas print, a cozy rug or an antique dresser, go for something that suits your tastes but also adds a bit of flair. It doesn’t have to be a Picasso. A bit of exploration at your local store should present you with plenty of options.

Swap out old Hardware

While you could completely replace the furniture in your room, this route is obviously not going to be cheap. Instead, you could save a ton of cash and simply replace the hardware on your current furniture. This can be anything from your drawer pulls to the handles for your cupboards. Look at glass or metal options for extra opulence.

Elevate Your Curtains

A great way to make your room look bigger and more photogenic is to raise your curtain rod just a few inches below the ceiling line. This way your curtains drape towards the floor, adding a touch of elegance and creating more space for your bedroom. If you have the means, you could also consider a set of curtains with minimal detailing to for a cleaner look.
