The word luxury living evokes images of large mansions, fancy cars, gold bathroom taps, caviar, champagne and an array of servants to tend to your every whim.
This image of luxury living is usually reserved for celebrities, business magnates and royalty. If you're not part of the list, the thought of luxury feels like a pipe dream.
You may not be a millionaire, but finding the right resources and exercising creativity can help you move closer to a life of luxury. Here are tips to turn your ideas of luxury into reality.
You might not own a mansion or an exclusive beachfront apartment, but you can still achieve luxury by looking for the right place to live. When house hunting, searching for a desirable residence in the middle of the city may cost a fortune. You'll find house and land packages in areas a few minutes away from central business districts of growing cities like Townsville.
Just as location matters for luxury living, home design helps evoke comfort and indulgence. Open floor designs give an illusion of space, making smaller floor plans feel bigger than they are. Focus your design on the bathroom, lounge and kitchen, which are the common areas in the home.
To make your home feel luxurious, you have to simplify. Taking on a minimalist approach might seem counterintuitive, but doing so helps you get rid of unnecessary furniture and accessories, and highlight items that are stylish and functional. Enhance the luxurious feel of your room by adding a statement piece, such as a chandelier or a large painting.
Add flowers and greenery for a touch of elegance. If your fingers are not green, stick to low-maintenance plants like Monsteras and orchids.
Install wireless home automation devices that allow you to control room temperature, lights and the alarm system. You may not have servants attending to your every whim, but at least you'll have smart technology helping you live more comfortably.
You don’t need to become a millionaire to live a life of luxury. Living luxuriously also means treating yourself because you deserve the best. Whether the budget is a concern or not, you can add a hint of glamour so that home living can be just as indulgent as you imagine.
