Make Your House Look More Expensive and Rich – Maybe your budget doesn’t always allow for expensive, high-end decorations, but you still want your space to look stylish and put together.
Luckily, you don’t have to break the bank in order to create a classy, expensive-looking home. Here are some of the best tips to make your house look more expensive.

Use lavish-looking materials, such as velvet or faux fur
Velvet has been historically used by the royals and very rich and it has a very luxurious and decadent feel to it. Velvet can make anything look noble and rich and a faux fur rug or throw can really tie in the room together.
Add mirrors all around your house
Mirrors were also primarily used by the very rich for a long time, because they were expensive and considered a luxury. Mirrors are silver, so it’s easy to see why a mere commoner wouldn’t afford to have their house filled with them. In addition, mirrors can really open up your space – especially if it’s on the smaller side – and give the impression of a bigger room.
Stay fashionable with marble
Marble is very fashionable right now, across different accessories. So it’s not just marble countertops you should be after, but also little touches around the house, such as candle holders, little trays, dishes, flower pots, etc.
You can find marble decorations in less expensive places, such as H&M, IKEA, and other lower-end stores that carry home ware.
Inject some gold detailing
Gold looks opulent and expensive, for obvious reasons. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to go and spray-paint everything in your house gold.
But you can add some shiny, gold details on some of your accessories, such as vases, picture frames, door handles, etc. Be careful not to go overboard, otherwise it will just look tacky.
Make the chandelier the focus of the room
What’s more opulent than a chandelier hanging in the middle of the room? Absolutely nothing. If you want to upgrade a room instantly and give it an expensive and decadent vibe, switch your regular lighting fixture with a beautiful chandelier. Especially if you have high ceilings, this will work to fill the space and make your house feel like a veritable ballroom.
