How to Achieve Luxury Interior Design Without Breaking The Bank


Luxury interiors, in the typical sense of the term, are not exactly cheap. However, you can get that luxurious look on a budget. Here are a few tips for achieving luxury interior design on your own budget and making your home look like something from a magazine cover.

Do your own DIY projects

With some creative thinking, you can achieve luxury interior design on a budget.

But before we get into the nitty-gritty of how to do it, let’s first address the most important question: why should you DIY your home decor?

  • It’s cheaper than hiring an interior designer or contractor. If you’re looking for ways to save money and still make your house look like something out of Downton Abbey, then DIY projects are for you! Not only will they save you tons of cash, but they’ll also teach you valuable skills that can be used in future home improvement projects.
  • It gives your space personality – and not just any old personality – but YOUR personal style! You don’t have to settle for what everyone else has; instead, use this opportunity as an outlet for creativity! Your unique take on the classic look will leave all passersby gawking in awe at what elegance looks like when executed by someone who cares about detail (i.e., YOU). Plus it won’t take long at all – usually less than one weekend – so now isn’t that worth it?

Painting the walls

To paint the walls, use a neutral colour. It’s best to stick with a colour that is similar to the furniture. If you have dark furniture, it’s best not to paint your wall black as it will make your room look smaller and more closed in. The same goes for a light-coloured wall; if you have light furniture, avoid painting your wall white as it will make your room appear small and boring.

Instead, choose a colour that is similar to the carpet or curtains so that they complement each other nicely!

One side of the room to a different colour – an accent wall

One of the easiest ways to add definition and dimension to a room, and make it feel like a whole new world, is by painting one wall in a different colour. You don’t necessarily have to paint every inch of your walls – if you have a small room, for example, this might feel overwhelming. Instead, pick one section or feature wall (like above) and go crazy with your colour choice!

The great thing about doing this is that it’s cheap and easy. If you’re not overly confident in your painting skills or lack any DIY know-how whatsoever then don’t worry – there are loads of affordable paints out there these days which will give your room an instant facelift without needing any special skills or equipment.

Alternatively, if you prefer something more subtle than painting an entire room (or want something easier), wallpaper can also be used as an accent wall rather than covering the entire surface area with it.”

Add a little green around you

Green is the colour of nature and it represents growth, which is why it’s a popular choice in bathrooms and bedrooms. The calming effect of green can help reduce stress levels and improve your mood, so adding plants or painting walls in this particular shade will only add to its benefits.

Use white accents to lighten up spaces that are too dark or gloomy. White reflects light, making any room appear bigger than it actually is by adding brightness without sacrificing privacy since it’s not as reflective as other shades such as black or grey (which can make rooms look smaller). As an added bonus, you’ll also get the benefit of being able to see dirt easier than if there were darker colours instead!

Pick up a few statement pieces

Adding statement pieces to your home is one of the easiest ways to add luxury and style. You can find some great items at thrift stores, or buy new items that are similar but not exactly the same as the original. Statement pieces are often expensive, so do what you can to find good deals on them!

It’s also important to remember that when you’re adding a statement piece, it should be something that catches people’s eye and doesn’t go unnoticed. It should catch their attention because it’s something different than they expect – either in appearance or function.

Furniture and texture can make a difference

One of the best ways to add interest to your space is by mixing textures. This may be a bit difficult for beginners, but it can be done with a few easy steps.

Choose an area that you want to change up and pick out some pieces of furniture that will go well in it. You’ll want them all to match for aesthetic purposes, but you don’t need them all from the same store or anything like that. Try mixing high-end pieces with more affordable ones as well; this gives more room for creativity and is sure to get people talking!

Then comes texture—this can be achieved through materials like wood or fabric (curtains work perfectly), colours like reds or blues (accent walls are great here), patterns such as stripes and polka dots on pillows/tablecloths/rugs/etc., shapes such as round tables instead of rectangle ones…the possibilities really are endless!

Go for the evergreen look

You can also opt for the evergreen look. This means choosing a colour that will go with everything and one that won’t be out of fashion in a few years. Your choice should be based on the latest trends, but this doesn’t mean you have to spend too much time looking at magazines!

The most popular neutral colours are: white, grey, beige and brown. You can use paint or wallpaper to achieve this effect.

Limit your luxury purchases

The first step to achieving luxury interior design on a budget is to limit your luxury purchases. Luxury items are a great way to make your home feel more upscale, but they can be costly and difficult to maintain.

  • Don’t buy things that you don’t need. For example, if your home already has plenty of storage space, an additional cabinet won’t add any value or increase comfort while living in the home. So spend money on something else instead!
  • Buy things that are not too expensive relative to what they bring into your life. If a particular item is overpriced based on its function (e.g., it doesn’t improve the quality of life), then don’t get it!
  • Only things that you can afford regardless of how awesome Others might be. This means not putting yourself into significant debt just so you can have nice stuff—you should always put yourself first when making financial decisions!

Choose neutral colours that can be changed easily

Neutral colours are the best choice for walls, furniture and accessories. You can experiment with bolder hues in other areas of your home. If you have a small budget, start by painting your walls a light shade of grey or beige. Then add splashes of colour through throw pillows, wall art and rugs. Flooring is also an important factor to consider when designing your interior design on a budget; go for a neutral colour like white or black if you don’t have enough money to invest in expensive floors like hardwood.


Remember that it’s all about prioritising, finding ways to stretch your budget and being creative with what you have. The key is always in knowing what kind of look you want from the start – if possible, hire an interior designer specialising in high-quality custom design but at affordable prices!
