Ten Luxury Interior Design Tips For Homes

1. Lift your mood with lighting: Cox Jones Interiors (sponsored link), the leading interior design practice in Birmingham and Manchester, recommends flooding your home with daylight to give your interiors an instant lift and enhance your mood. Bi-fold patio doors, extra-large windows and skylights will help bring natural light inside. If your home is dark, you can install ‘natural’ bulbs to give the illusion of daylight. Remote-controlled lighting is an excellent idea for gadget lovers. Dimmable lighting is ideal if you want to relax in the evenings. Ceiling-down lights are popular for contemporary homes. If you’re going to add a focal point, hang a stunning chandelier or pendant light. Hotels often use floor and table lamps instead of ceiling lights which is ideal for the bedroom.

2. Move around your home with ease by reconfiguring the layout: Open up the internal space by removing walls or relocating the staircase. The area flow should be effortless.

3. Feel a quality surface beneath your feet: Installing a beautiful wooden floor using planks or parquet flooring is worth every penny. If you are using tiles in the kitchen or bathroom, consider placing underfloor heating for warmth. If you prefer carpet, neutral colours look more sophisticated. Luxury rugs can be used to add warmth and interest to a large room.

4. Add value to your home by investing in a dream kitchen and bathroom: Beautiful kitchens and bathrooms sell houses, so this is where you should spend the bulk of your budget. If you are short on cash, buy a premium kitchen countertop which you can pair with inexpensive cabinets. Contemporary bathroom tiles arranged in a stylish pattern can transform a simple white bathroom suite. Opt for a wet room for the wow factor if you have space.

5. Appreciate a flawless finish with professionally decorated interiors: If you can afford professional decorators, it is undoubtedly worth the investment. Walls and woodwork can look amazing if they are correctly prepared and painted. A neutral colour palette is elegant, timeless and calming. You will find plenty of paint colours at Designerpaint. Add interest and pops of colour with home accessories, decorative objects and works of art.

6. Send out quality signals with fabulous fixtures and fittings: Even if you are refurbishing your home on a budget, purchase stylish door handles, electrical sockets and light switches. These little touches make a big difference to the overall appearance of the interiors.

7. Be comfortable by investing in premium furniture and furnishings: Buying a quality sofa, iconic designer lounge chair or king-size bed are worth it. Focus on opulent materials such as velvet for sofas, silk for curtains, Egyptian cotton for bedding and wool for rugs.

8. Feel relaxed by hiding all clutter from sight: Install floor-to-ceiling storage cupboards so that you can put away anything that isn’t aesthetically pleasing or not in daily use. Fitted wardrobes and walk-in closets are excellent for displaying your garments in an orderly fashion.

9. Make your life easier with smart home solutions: App-controlled lighting, room temperature, window blinds, security alarm, video doorbell and other systems can help you feel secure and in control.

10. Entertain yourself with an in-home cinema: If you have a second living room, you could transform this into a cinema or a place to hang out with your friends to play table tennis, pool or snooker. If you can’t afford top-end gadgets, transform the space into a minimal yoga studio or meditation room instead.
