It’s easy to appreciate the look of expensive touches to your home, but appreciating the price tags they come with is much more difficult. However, creating a luxurious home doesn’t always have to mean eating like a college kid. Here are five small touches that can up the luxe factor of your home, without killing your credit card.

1. Pearl knobs

Peral knobs adds old-world glamor to any room. Trade out those often-overlooked knobs on doors, cupboards, and drawers for something with a little more pizazz.

2. Go for gold

The color gold is a universally recognized sign of glamor. Although gold as a metal has been regarded as precious for millennia and items made of real gold are quite expensive, there are plenty of ways to get the King Midas look for less. Gold spray paint and gold leaf pens can transform table legs, picture frames, and knick-knacks found on bookshelves, creating a luxurious feel. If you’re not a fan of the DIY approach, look for decorative items done in gold leaf or finished in the hue.

Pillows are the easiest place to start when you’re looking for a room refresh. They’re inexpensive and have the power to transform the feel of a space. Choosing pillows in the right variety of colors and textures will lend personality and style to your master bedroom. Rich hues add a sense of drama to sofas and chairs, metallic touches bring sparkle, and fabrics like silk instantly upgrade Plain Jane spaces.

Real fur may be a faux pas, but faux fur is still completely cool– er, cozy. Soft faux fur blankets elegantly draped across furniture make a room feel plusher. Finding a throw that’s big on style but small on price can be a challenge, but with a little internet searching, it is definitely possible.

5. Get arty

Art collectors’ homes tend to sit firmly in the lap of luxury. Get some of that for yourself by adding art to your walls. Large pieces are an easy way to fill blank walls, while galleries allow for variety. Buying art doesn’t have to bankrupt you. There are plenty of places to find inexpensive original art. Artists often have booths at farmers markets, and student showcases at colleges are a good place to scope out new talent. Another option is to buy a print replica of a classic work of art. You get the prestige of Degas without the need for a trust fund.

Living in luxury is not just for those who can afford it. With a little creative thinking, any home can enjoy a luxurious aesthetic without going over budget.
