Interior tips to make your lounge comfortable and luxurious
Posted on May 21 2022
Building our Dream Home from scratch or revamping our current home space, we all are looking to make our homes as comfortable and luxurious as possible. But how exactly can we successfully pull off the high-end feel? What are the most crucial elements to add a sense of luxury and warmth to our space? Is it a high-end sofa? While elegant furniture pieces help elevate the class factor, they bring a luxurious look only with the right interiors. Here, we have shortlisted some interior design ideas to create sophisticated home interiors without overhauling the entire home.
Before starting off with any interiors or buying any furniture online, the obvious step is to develop a color palette for your space. We recommend inclining towards hues and tones that bring you comfort. Select shades that work well together. A mix of three hues will be ideal and provide a more cohesive design. Once the color palette has been decided, move forth by adding textural elements that bring a tactile feel and greater depth to your space.
First and foremost, you need to decide how you will scale the room. Think of how you can draw interest to the eye and create a focal point in your current architecture. You can test different furniture heights and designs, ornamental objects, wall art, paintings or sculptures, and division through consoles and planters is one of the easiest ways to achieve scale and add interest to your space.
If your living room has high ceilings, treat them with light curtains mounted from the floor to the top. On the other hand, if your living room has low ceilings and smaller windows, avoid any window treatments altogether. Take advantage of the natural light and keep the space airy and bright otherwise, covered with curtains, though adding texture, they will make the room appear smaller and crowded.
Dress up the room
A rug is an art on the floor. While wooden floorboards and tiles will work great for flooring, a soft rug will add a luxury element, inject warmth and give the illusion of a larger living room. Window treatment with long elegant curtains will make for a bespoke space. Additionally, adding a textural throw and cushions to match the season or mood will boost the cozy factor and infuse new energy into the living room. Play around with their placements; beyond the couch, over the armchair, or on a settee.
A layered, thoughtful mix of materials like glass, wood, textiles, and leather will add to the room's texture and create a dynamic and inviting home space. Accessories will help amp up the luxury facet of flat surfaces like coffee tables, side tables, shelves, and consoles while bringing a personal style and making the space feel truly yours.
Layer the lightings
Next comes the room's lighting. A living room should have a balanced combination of natural and artificial lighting that keeps the room's luxury ambiance intact 24/7.
To keep the sense of luxury flawless throughout the day, we suggest layering in the lights, starting with the pendant lamps on either side or a large chandelier in the center of the room. Now look for different sources like ceiling lights, floor lamps, and table lamps. Do not go overboard with every form. Select your light sources wisely and as per the need, as they will maximize the room's warmth and create different experiences during the day and night.
Include pieces of Art
Here comes the part of creating a focal point. You can give your space a wow factor by hanging an oversized wall painting behind the main sofa or a balanced placement of various designer mirrors on your living room walls. The addition of mirrors or artworks will add instant value to a living room. Depending on the size of the room, you can choose a solo wall art or hang small to medium wall arts of different heights and styles on several walls to create a sense of luxury and design.
An over-accessorized living room gives a messy and disorganized feel, making you uncomfortable in the space. Keep a harmonious balance in your decor by retaining essential pieces. Introduce shapes and unique silhouettes in the form of sculptures, candle stands, and antique decor that reflect your style and tie the room together. A simplified space will enable the set elements to shine and create a sense of intrigue.
