We all take pride in the appearance of our homes, not only for the sake of guests but also for ourselves. We want to create a place which is comfortable, but also to our taste. When you hear the word ‘luxurious’ your humble home may not immediately spring to mind, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Luxury does not need to come with a big, designer price tag. There are plenty of small and simple touches you can add to your home to give it that luxurious feeling.
Occasional tables can serve as decoration, as well as a practical use. You can use them in multiple rooms in the home: a statement coffee table for the living room, a side table for a floral display in a hallway, or nestling tables to use when guests come over. Cox & Cox offer a brilliant range of them. They come in a variety of materials so you can opt for a natural, wooden look or something more modern and artistic like glass or brass. It depends on the look you’re trying to create in your home.
By putting a wine rack in the kitchen, you immediately add a touch of elegance to the place. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you have to fork out and fill it with the finest, aged bottles of wine you can find. A couple of bottles from the supermarket would do. Not only does a wine rack it act as a great feature, but it also means you’re prepared for hosting duties for any impromptu guests.
A vase of fresh flowers can make a world of difference to a room. Flowers add a bit of life to what could be a dull corner, and also can act as a natural air freshener. The vase you store them in can make a difference, too. It could be tempting to put them in a spare jug from the kitchen, but by investing in a clear-cut glass vase, it gives the floral display that sophisticated feel. Go for your favourite flower to welcome you as soon as you get home.
Again, when you hear this word your mind might spring to a big cost. This is not the case. Charity shops, garage sales and vintage markets all have hidden gems waiting for you to find. In fact, charity shops are increasing in popularity and it isn’t hard to understand why. The pieces you buy will have a story, history, and a small price tag. Not only will an antique give your home that much more a luxury feeling, but it will also give it some character. It can be anything from a gilded mirror, a chair, or ornaments.
