4 Design Ideas to Elevate Your Luxury Living Room

1. Add Wall Moldings Or Trims

Wall molding, trims, or crowns. These are only three of the small architectural details you can add to your walls to transform them from plain to elegant. 

Just imagine those classic, elegant homes or hotels you may have walked into. Is it not the layer of details in the wall one of the most defining features? It’s not just plain square. That’s because elegance and luxury are all about going the extra mile to design.

If you’re willing to get your hands dirty and you’re a DIY pro, this can be quite an inexpensive project you can do on your own. Lots of hardware stores carry a wide selection of crowns and molds you can choose from. If not, let an expert builder do it for you.

2. Add Some Texture

Your walls may be a plain color, but with texture, you can add a warmer and more inviting environment. Adding texture means putting so much thought into your fabric choice. Don’t just choose plain textiles. Opt for those with a hint of touch with it, like embroidery, suedes, and even velvets.

You can play with texture through your draperies, curtains, carpets, and pillowcases. A plain sofa will instantly look and feel plusher with nice throw pillows, and a quilt or blanket tossed on the side.

3. Use Accent Chairs

As its name implies, accent chairs should create a wow factor or a focal point in your living space. It’s meant to stand out design-wise while maintaining its cohesiveness with the rest of the living space.

You can have either just one or two accent chairs, depending on the size of your living room. With a single accent chair, the best place for it is a bare corner of your living room. For two accent chairs, you can have a bare wall as its background. In between both accent chairs, place a side table.

With that kind of concept, you’re putting more depth and dimension into your living space. It makes it look more thought-of, which is a characteristic of an elegant and luxurious space.

4. Invest In A Good Couch 

How does your couch look at the moment? An old and worn-out couch only hurts your living space’s interior. If the budget permits, you may want to head out and shop for a better-quality couch. The key is to balance out functionality and style.

Luxury is all about good quality and a long-lasting couch. When you walk through a furniture shop, you can instantly tell which ones are better and which aren’t, even without looking at the price.

This notion also applies when you have guests walking into your home. It’s easy to spot a cheap couch by only judging through its looks. Be particular about small details like the fabric used, the leg design, and even the quality of the stitching.
