You may not realize it, but your bathroom is among the most important rooms in your home. Gone are the days when bathrooms were used only for functional purposes. Lately, people are gravitating towards spa-like luxurious bathrooms that make them feel like royalty.

To spice it all up, be creative with a pop of color and create a gallery wall with photography and art pieces.

5. A Striking Exterior is Everything



High-end homes are accented by fabulous exteriors and landscapes. It is not enough to have a luxurious bathroom or a state-of-the-art kitchen, the first glimpse of a home should also exude elegance. Rather than your front porch just being an exit and entry area, strive to up-scale this off-forgotten space with the tips below.

  • You would be amazed what landscaping would do to your front exterior! Line up plants and flowers on the entry walkway to make the exterior pop thus increasing the curb appeal. Then, creatively lay your pathway with stones, brick, or concrete and paint them with contrasting colors to give off a luxurious façade.
  • If you have a large outdoor space, how about you level it up into a place where you can have intimate conversations or relax after a day’s hassles? Include outdoor amenities like an outdoor kitchen, classy wine bar, pool, or a gazebo to complement the architectural exterior and provide a stunning background.
  • Small outdoor spaces on the other hand, can easily feel chaotic and crammed but by setting clear dividers for separate activities, you can create the impression of a larger space. From a small home garden to a lounging area where you can host guests, such distinct places accentuate your outdoors beautifully.
  • Finally, complete the finishes on your striking exterior with a touch of smart technology. Perhaps a doorbell that doubles up into a video camera or you can install a smart door that allows access via finger print, facial recognition, or a remote controlled app on your phone. Sounds amazing, right?

In a nutshell, we can all agree that when you simply toss out decorative touches here and there, you ensure your home oozes out a high-end luxurious appeal. And with these clever hacks, leveling up your home does not seem nearly as challenging now, does it? So now that you know better, do better. It is your turn to transform your home into a palace.
