Choose the Right Luxury Designer

Regardless of whether you opt for a luxury apartment, townhouse, condo, or house, you can implement a luxury design by working with the right luxury interior designer. It is crucial to keep in mind that no matter how luxurious your home looks, it needs to feel comfortable. This includes everything from the layout to the furniture and décor.  I have been a luxury interior designer in Houston for over fifteen years and love to share tips as to how you can achieve a luxury feel in any space.

Luxury interior design is subjective. Some people define it as being extravagant, but for most people, it means bringing out the best in a space. Luxury interior design has its own unique characteristics that align with homeowners’ design style.  Geography also plays as role as modern luxury interiors in Texas varies greatly from New York City luxury interiors.

The most important thing to consider when creating a high-end interior design is how much you want to spend. If you are planning on spending thousands of dollars on materials alone, then you might want to think about making some changes to your budget. But if you are looking to invest less money into your project, then you can still create luxurious spaces with the right design implementations. Here are some important tips when designing for luxury.

Plan Your Space Strategically and Budget for Where you Spend the Most Time

Regardless of the type of home that you are working with, it is essential to know where you plan to spend most of your time.

  • Do you love to cook? If so you would choose to focus most of your budget on a luxury kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is an excellent investment because the kitchen sells the home. 
  • Luxury living room design If you enjoy relaxing during your time off. 
  • Do you work from home? As most of your time will be spent in your home office, you would consider spending more in this space.
  • Luxury bedroom interior design including an extravagant master bath should not be overlooked.  The master bath is another great place to invest as it is very important for resale.  
  • Consider how your lifestyle may change in the future in order for your design to remain timeless.  Trends are fun but best in small doses such as a powder bathroom.

Know What Type of Space You Are Working With

It’s important to create a home that flows and maintains the integrity of the architectural style.  That does not mean that a traditional home means every detail must be in that vernacular but the essence needs traditional elements so the home has soul and feels right.  

Curate Elements That Deliver Comfort

When designing a luxurious interior, one must consider how comfortable the spaces are. As high end-designers, we look for materials such as leather, marble, and wood that are soft and luxurious. We want to provide a feeling of warmth without sacrificing practicality. Premium furniture that is both unique and comfortable can create a luxurious feel.  Fortunately, there are many treated fabrics now which makes luxury fabrics more practical for everyday use.  

Meticulous Attention to Design Details – Include Touches of Glamour and vintage pieces to layer and add a curated feel.

Another key element of luxury interior design is attention to detail.  The details are what make the design.  The color of piping on a pillow can make the whole sofa or a rich wallpaper in the powder bath brings it to life.   By paying close attention to every aspect of the room including the floors, walls, ceilings, and even the smallest objects like light switches and knobs, each room is enhanced to the highest level.  The more attention spent on these little things, the higher the design.  

Layer with Luxe Textures

By choosing colors wisely, we then implement luxe textures. Some of our favorite design projects have included encaustic tile, subway tile, and textured wallpaper. We also love to use a variety of metals and finishes in our designs. We are always looking for new ways to create unique pieces. Our goal is to make each space one-of-a-kind while creating flow from room to room.  From the curb to the rear yard, and everything in between, it needs to relate and make sense.  The outside flows inside and the rooms converse with one another as you go through the home.  When we think of the home as connected, our design is elevated and more enjoyable.  

Get creative with Lighting

Lighting is one of the most important elements in any room. It can add drama and mood to a space, or it can be used as an accent for your décor. You can use lighting to highlight specific areas of interest in your homes, such as artwork, furniture, or even your favorite bookshelf. Or you can create a mood by using soft lighting that creates a romantic feel. There is so much variety when it comes to lighting, this is a great way to put the finishing touches on your luxury interior. 

Include Statement Art Pieces

Larger pieces of stunning art can create the ideal high-end interior. Choosing the right art is a detail that will create amazing spaces. The most common type of artwork used in interior design, is paintings which are usually large-scale works on canvas or paper. They can be expensive, but they add an element of class to any room. Art is subjective and is key to changing a basic design to a luxury design.
