How To Make Your Home Look Expensive


If you want to make your home look more expensive, there are some simple things that can help. These tips can be used in any room of the house and will instantly create a more elegant space.

1. Create a dramatic entrance

The entrance is the first thing people see when they walk in your door, so it’s important to make it welcoming and inviting. If your home has a more formal look, this can be accomplished with a large mirror. Mirrors have been used for centuries to create the illusion of space and light, and are often found in foyers or hallways because they reflect light into your home.

If you’re looking for something less traditional but still fashionable, consider adding lighting fixtures that showcase interesting shapes or materials (like glass or metal). Lighting fixtures can also serve as art pieces on their own! For example: if you love plants but don’t have much indoor space available—or not enough time to water them frequently—consider installing pendant lights over tables instead! These kinds of lights will allow you to display plants without worrying about watering them daily since there won’t be any soil involved (think air plants). This will save both time AND money since there’s no need for frequent trips back outside just so you can water some plants every few days!

2. Add live plants

This can be a little tricky if you don’t have a green thumb. I know, because I don’t have one myself! But there are plenty of ways to get around this problem:

  • You can start small with something like succulents or air plants. These will cost less than $5 each and they also make great gifts!
  • If you want something bigger and more expensive, consider getting a bonsai tree from your local nursery or garden center. They come in all different sizes, shapes, colors and prices based on how large or mature the plant is when it arrives at your home.
  • Make sure that whatever plant you buy has enough light for it to grow into its full potential! You don’t want it wilting away before its time because of poor lighting conditions in your home decorating space…

3. Focus on lighting

Lighting, the most important thing. Lighting is key to making your home look expensive, and there are tons of different ways to use lighting in your home. You can do it with overhead lights, or you can use lamps or wall sconces to highlight individual pieces of furniture or art around the house. A simple trick is to hang a lamp on one side of the room and then place another lamp on the other side of the room so that light bounces off one another—this makes a space seem brighter and more spacious than it actually is!

Another way you can achieve this effect is by using mirroring ceilings because mirrors reflect light from one area into another, making spaces look bigger than they are (and thus more modern).

4. Focus on texture

Textures are really important when it comes to making your home look expensive. You can add texture by using carpets and rugs, or even furniture with a lot of detail. It’s also important to use textured materials for the walls, ceiling and flooring in your home.

5. Paint your walls and trim the same color

  • Paint your walls and trim the same color

If you’re going to paint, it makes sense to paint the trim and walls the same color. This makes a big difference in how your home looks. A creamy white is one of my favorite colors for trim because it makes rooms look bigger and brighter, but also because it blends nicely with just about every other wall color (except black). You can use this trick throughout your house if you want – even on ceilings! If you do go with white walls in some rooms, try using another neutral shade for other spaces such as ceiling or flooring (or just keep things simple by using one bright accent wall).

6. Install crown molding

  • Install crown molding

A lot of people think that crown molding is expensive and only used in extremely fancy houses. However, it can be a great way to give your space a more luxurious look without spending much money. Crown molding not only makes rooms look more formal, it can also help make them appear taller and more spacious. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to make your home look more expensive, install some crown molding!

7. Get a decorative ladder

Ladders are great tools to add a decorative touch to your home, and they can be used in so many different ways. Here are just a few of the ways you could use a ladder in your home:

  • Display items that you love. Ladders make for great display stands for items that you really love and want to show off, like blankets or plants. If it’s something small enough, you can hang it from the rungs of the ladder!
  • Display items that you want to sell or give away. If you have things sitting around your house that aren’t getting any use anymore, consider putting them up on display using a ladder! It’s a great way to get rid of clutter as well as letting others know about what types of things might be available at their next garage sale (or even just leaving them there).

8. Use decorative mirrors to make a space look bigger

When you’re trying to make a space look bigger, mirrors can be your best friend. Mirrors reflect light, they reflect the view and they also reflect the color of the walls. The more reflective surfaces you have in your room, the larger it will appear. If you want to use a mirror as an accent piece in your home, consider placing it over a fireplace or underneath an accent wall.

To get maximum impact from using decorative mirrors in your home:

  • Make sure that every mirror is clean and shiny so that it reflects light properly and clearly; otherwise, you’ll just be making reflections on dirty glass!
  • Use large and small decorative mirrors throughout the house to create focal points in each room (a great way to do this is by hanging one above or below each window).
  • Hang two different sizes together—one large enough so all who enter can see their reflection while still allowing plenty of space around them; one smaller version beneath so there’s always something interesting happening when guests come through both doors at once!”

9. Accessorize with modern pieces

Accessorize with modern pieces

When it comes to accessorizing your home, you should choose things that look like they have been in the house for years. If you don’t love it, chances are no one else will either! A good rule of thumb is to choose pieces that actually add value to your space. Don’t be afraid of using modern items in an old-looking room—you can achieve a beautiful mix of the old and new if done correctly. Just remember to take pride in how you’ve designed it!

Make sure you love how your space looks, take pride in how you’ve designed it!
