There are plenty of ways to up the style quotient of your home, irrespective of your budget. You can go all out with expensive flooring (think marble) and designer furniture; or, if you have a tighter budget you can add elements of bling or vintage through the house to elevate the overall look.
In this article, we give you different ideas on how to make your home look more stylish.

Lighting Options And A Striking Chandelier
Your choice of lighting can make a big difference to the overall look and feel of your home. Low lighting or ‘mood’ lighting can make a room look uber chic. The choice of lights and lamps also lend to the look of the room. Choose a theme and then go all out. Is your personal style more glitzy and shiny? Or do you prefer a more subdued, classy look? Or perhaps you like vintage?
A beautiful chandelier from Sogni Di Cristallo, for instance, placed strategically either in your hallway or living room can make a huge difference too. Chandeliers add instant elegance to a space, so take your pick from Venetian classics, pendant lights, ceiling lamps or even more modern, sleek chandeliers.
If you have the opportunity and space, then adding the element of stained glass can add instant glamour and value to your home. Choose a wall that gets good sunlight so as to show off your stained glass to the best of its capacity. This will definitely be the focal point of your home.
Paintings Or Sculptures
Art always increases the style quotient of a space. There are so many ways to play around with art – you just need to see what works best for your home. One option is to have a ‘gallery feature wall’ where you can display artworks by various artists. If space is an issue, then choose one big, striking painting and place it where it can be the focal point of the living room (and talking point when you are entertaining!).
If paintings don’t excite you, then decorating your home with sculptures can also be a great way to add style and elegance to your home.
Choosing luxury or high-quality flooring or tiles instantly lifts the look of your house. Think of it – the floor is the biggest free space in your house, so if it looks classy, it makes the entire house feel more luxurious.
You could go for expensive, high-quality floor options such as marble, designer Italian tiles or proper hardwood floors. Alternatively, or if you are sticking to a budget, you could highlight a particular area with mosaic tiles.
Accessories And Soft Furnishings
Last but not the least, the way you decorate your home with accessories and soft furnishings also makes a world of difference to the final look of your home. Even if you don’t have expensive, designer furniture or flooring, a few well-thought-out accessories can make your space look more expensive and chic. Silk cushions or drapes, a plush rug, a vintage armchair, some unusual curios – let your imagination run.
