Avoid half-length curtains and go for full length curtains instead! The long drapes instantly add a luxurious touch to a room. For an even grander look, hang the rod as high up as possible to give the illusion of a higher ceiling. You can find affordable ones at Ikea.

#2 Get large art pieces

Large-scale art pieces automatically create a grand statement, regardless of whether the art itself is expensive or not! You can find affordable art and décor online at Etsy and Aliexpress. Hang a massive canvas that takes up an entire wall or an oversized mirror with thick frames that leans against the wall.

#3 Update old fixtures

Nothing looks more chic and classy than a set of matching containers on a dressing table, bathroom counter or kitchen counter. Instead of the bright coloured soap containers, purchase soap refills for minimalist soap dispensers. Transferring cotton pads from their original box into a container that has a matching style to elevate the look of the entire room. Check out this matching marble toiletries holder set (starting from $12.95 per piece).

Important note: this does not apply to furniture! Avoid purchasing matching furniture sets and choose them separately according to your style instead.

Lighting makes all the difference in a room. A single, glaring light source creates a harsh look. Instead, add a variety of light sources in each room for depth and cosiness. If you have lamps that aren't in the best condition, simply replace the shades! You can find a variety of stylish and affordable options at Ikea.

#7 Classic wall colours

While colours can be fun, if the shade isn't right, it may cheapen the look of a home. To play it safe, stick to classic and timeless shades of white, off-white, beige or light grey that will make your home look bright and classy.

#8 Classic bedding colours

Like your walls, it's difficult to create a luxurious look with colours and prints on your bedding. Keep your bedding in either white or light neutral colours and your room will instantly get that classy hotel look.

If you love colour, add it to your home through accessories instead! That way, you can easily swop it out if trends change or you want something new.
