Lighting is a very important factor that affects the whole ambiance and atmosphere of any room in the house, layering in lighting is a very important aspect in creating a luxurious look and effect, especially in a living room. A variety of lighting sources, like ceiling source lighting, and a couple of side and floor lamps will add warmth and coziness to the room. Choosing different lighting sources creates contrasting experiences.

Rugs Add a Sense of Luxury

No matter how much the floor tiles or wooden floorboards look expensive and sleek, you still need to rug it up with a nice, soft, and rich rug that covers up your entire space. If your living space is rather small, choose a rug from a selection of luxurious rugs to make your space look bigger and fancier. Rugs, like other decorative additions, when added to a small room, act as a focal piece and luxury element.

You can choose from various types of rugs depending on your preference, style, and functionality. Apart from shag and flatweave rugs, there are also traditional Oriental rugs, Moroccan rugs, Persian rugs, and more. Oriental rugs, for instance, feature intricate designs and vibrant colours that can add character to any room. Moroccan rugs, on the other hand, have a geometric pattern and a neutral colour palette that can complement modern and bohemian styles.

Animal print rugs have become increasingly popular in recent years. Whether it’s a zebra print or a cowhide rug, they can add a unique texture and style to any room. Goat skin hide rugs can add warmth and texture to a modern living room or rustic bedroom. A cowhide rug’s natural patterns and colours can also complement various colour schemes and styles. 

Dress Up Your Windows

Curtains are a standout feature. Having plain, uncovered windows will make the room feel empty and unfinished. Curtains and rugs are essential to wrap up your space, they add warmth and affluence to the entire place. If your space is on the smaller side, plain and light-colored curtains will make your room feel larger and more spacious.

Ornamental and Art Pieces

Art elevates the look of any space. Place a statement art portrait on your largest wall, maybe the one behind your main couch, and you’ll be surprised by the transformation it will create in your living area. It’s quite likely that you’ve already started picturing a piece on your empty wall and fantasizing about the colours and drawings that best suit your place. Adding different ornaments, candles of varying sizes and candle holders to your centre table and shelves are all opulent touches and tips for upgrading your living room.

Fire Places are Fancy

A fancy fireplace in a living room is a serious luxury hit and a great transformation to your place. Pick an empty place or a corner to place your new fireplace. Nowadays, there are plenty of innovative and decorative designs in the market that match every place and fulfil every taste.
