Making changes in your home can be done for a range of reasons. Practical considerations like safety, or adding smart tech, are two of the more obvious. You might also make some modifications because you want a new look, just to freshen things up and make the place feel enlivened. All of these are perfectly good reasons to make an addition or two, or even carry out a full renovation in your home.
Sometimes, what you really want to do is add something that makes your home feel … upgraded. A little touch like that can take a space from being perfectly pleasant to truly classy. Ideally, this is something that could be achieved without having to remortgage the house to pay for it. It’s rarely going to be practical to overhaul everything in your home in this way, but with one change it is possible to give a space that extra touch of luxury which will make it look and feel so much better.
In the kitchen: A state-of-the-art cooker
To a great extent, the art of cooking, and as a result, the art of kitchen arrangements, has become decentralized in recent years. Counter-top ovens, air fryers, and special cookers for eggs, rice, and plenty of other foodstuffs have become common. So a standard cooker – a multi-ring hob, an oven, and grilling section, along with possibly a few fancy add-ons – has become almost an anachronism in a modern kitchen. However, if chosen correctly, a classic cooker can still be the centerpiece of a kitchen. The fancier the better – look for induction hobs and seamless integration into the existing kitchen setup.
In the living room: Ornate lighting
You could overhaul the living room furniture, and in time you surely will – but if you don’t need to do that it can be an expensive mistake. If it’s still comfortable and looks good, leave it be. Instead, look up at the lighting you have in your family room. Chances are that it hasn’t been changed in a while. An addition like a Murano Chandelier in this area can make a huge difference. Something tasteful and stylish while still being functional will bring a lot of luxury while causing a minimum of fuss.
In the bedroom: A four-post bed
The height of style in bedroom furniture, no costume drama would be complete without it. Therefore, neither would your dream bedroom! A four-post bed evokes classic glamor and, at the same time, is believed to help you sleep better. The added sense of enclosure and privacy, as well as the control it offers over how much light you let into your sleeping area, makes a four-poster a practical choice. Then again, we’re not worrying too much about practicality here – why would we, when your bed is like something from Hollywood?
With one little touch, your home can feel transformed with glamor and class. Choose your upgrade carefully, and enjoy the added luxury it brings to your home. You’ll be surprised by how much difference one little addition can make.
