It is so easy to sit in front of our computers or on our phones and browse through online stores or even just watch videos on the internet, that show us items we desire. We love to fantasize about the home of our dreams, love to imagine what that would look like and how we could make our own house or apartment feel luxurious and put together without spending all our money on that.
It can be so difficult to stop ourselves from randomly buying stuff online, or to pity ourselves when we just don’t have the money to buy everything we need. Here’s what we consider the bare essentials for creating a feeling of luxury at home – without spending too much money on it.
A throw blanket
Yes, a throw blanket. You have no idea how much more luxurious your bedroom will look if you just add this one detail to it. Typically, we find those blankets in hotels or with rich people, but they’re actually not that expensive and we can get them everywhere. That’s amazing because our minds will associate those blankets with all the luxury and the positive experiences we’ve had in hotels.
So, yes, we think a throw blanket is going to look amazing. To take it one step further, you could get a faux fur throw blanket. If you ever feel like a cozy night in, this will be just the thing to wrap around yourself whilst you’re enjoying a warm drink and watching a fun show online. You will feel comfortable and like you belong just there. So, if you want to spend money, spend it on a throw blanket.
This comes in many forms and we do think all of them are great. Invest in anything that makes your room smell luxurious and like a fancy hotel, like a diffuser or candles. Just make sure that it’s not chemical or too expensive, and also stick with one scent per room, or even use the same scent for your entire house.
You will start to associate it with the comfort of your home and immediately start to relax when you get home. This is one of our favorite things to get to elevate your experience at home, so don’t hesitate to go for it right now.
Flowers and plants
This is our last essential. They clear the air, but they also just look pretty, give you small tasks once in a while and make your home feel a bit more luxurious. Plants make you feel like you’ve got your life put together, and they’re super affordable. You don’t have to spend much money at all to have some greens in your home. You could even take some vegetables and grow them yourself if that’s something you prefer.
Don’t spend much money, but spend the right money. Use those three ways for a nicer home and you will feel more comfortable and put together in a short while.
