Give Your Living Room The Luxe Touch For Less

Do you ever feel envious of people’s living rooms? The ones that look polished, elegant and like they cost thousands of pounds to decorate? It’s not just you!

Glamorous, chic and understated living room styling is a hot interior trend right now. It’s a good way to strip back and enjoy a beautiful space, while still keeping your home looking modern.

The good news is that you don’t need thousands of pounds to transform your living room and give it a more stylish upgrade. With some simple ideas and styling, you can give your living room the luxe touch for less. Here’s how it’s done.

Go neutral

Neutral tones will always be a popular living room choice. They can be matched easily with other shades, add light to a room and make everything feel a little more chic and upmarket. Popular living room neutrals include shades of light brown, off white and very pale grey – adding just a hint of colour that is very effective. You could add contrasting details in black, or wooden shades to add a subtle but stunning touch.

Explore some neutral living rooms to help give you some inspiration.

Change your flooring

Changing your flooring can make a big difference to the overall look and feel of your living room. Wooden flooring or even a more affordable laminate floor can instantly elevate your living space to give it a grander look and character. Hard floors are easy to maintain, and you won’t have to worry about spills and other messes, as they’re easy to clean up quickly without a carpet cleaner in sight! 

Use a rug to add some polish

Never underestimate the power of a rug to transform a room. A rug can add some colour and separate different areas of your living room, while also giving you something warm and soft to walk on if you have hard floors. Choosing the right rug for your space will depend on factors such as the size and shape of your living room as well as the colour scheme. It’s always a good idea to mark out your rug with some masking tape so you can see exactly where it will go.

Swap the clutter for minimal styling

One of the big secrets to creating a more luxurious space is minimal styling. Ditching the clutter is a simple way to spruce up your home on a budget, making your space look more expensive in the process. Decorate shelves with some simple vases, ornaments and photo frames to create a simple, curated look. You’ll be surprised at how doing less can add a little more to your living room.

Making your living room look more luxurious is easy with a few simple tricks. The key is to keep things stripped back, adding subtle details that will show off your impeccable interior style. Your luxe living room will be a calm, but homely space you can enjoy relaxing in at the end of a tough day.
