Spring cleaning is in full swing, which means out with the old and in with the new. While you’re cleaning things out for spring, consider making some improvements to your place that add a touch of luxury, even if you’re on a budget. We put together a list of our favorite 5 DIY projects to add a nice, luxurious feel to your apartment or townhome.
Golden Flower Pots
Bringing nature indoors is always a great way to spruce up the place. Take a look at the containers you’re currently using. If they’re boring, it’s time to spruce them up. Grab some good spray paint from your local hardware store and completely revamp your flower pots. Consider using black, white, or, fanciest of all, gold.
Nothing says luxury quite like a quiet, dedicated place to read. Even if you don’t have a large space, you can create the look of a nook by adding a rounded curtain rod in your ideal corner with nice curtains attached (consider using curtain tie backs like in the next tip). Add a circular rug that has some texture, a small shelf for a few books, and consider a small and cozy chair.
Add Simple Hardware To Your Curtain Tie Backs
If you’re going to let in natural light, add simple hardware to tie back your curtains. This small steps will be noticed by all of your visitors as windows naturally draw our attention. You may not notice if they’re not there, but you will definitely notice if someone takes the time to add them in.
Upgrade Hardware In The Kitchen
While you’re upgrading hardware, head to the kitchen. See the knobs and pulls? If they’re looking drab, consider upgrading them to add a sense of luxury to your modern apartment. Using more of a modern touch here will surely make an impact.
Use A Fancy Cake Stand For Kitchen Sink Accessories
When looking at your sink, you probably notice the dish soap, hand soap, and maybe a hand towel just laying around. Use a cake stand, the fancier, the better, to openly store these items. Additionally, use fancy containers for your soaps. It takes a little extra time to transfer, but the results are amazing.
Paint Your Old Vent Covers
It only takes a bit of spray paint, some cardboard, and some open air to add a touch of luxury throughout your entire place. Use the cardboard to put on the ground, and make sure you have plenty of breathable air, and spray your old vent covers. Making them a more modern color can add luxury and unify the home throughout.
Add Accent Ceilings
Accent ceilings are the new accent walls. Use them to show off your boldness, without adding a tacky color pattern to your wall. This is especially impactful if you have crown moulding as the color will draw eyes upwards and will definitely make an impact to all of your visitors.
Whether you’re making large renovations, or just a few small upgrades, you can add a bit of luxury to your place, even if you’re on a budget. It’s the small things that can make a big impact. Do those things right, and you’ll have a luxury feel without breaking the bank.
