1. Flooring

Forget the red carpet, there are so many luxe flooring options available your guests will feel like they’re making a grand entrance every time they walk through your door! From timber and laminate to vinyl and the increasingly popular hybrid planks, it’s hard to beat hard flooring for both function, performance, longevity and of course the beautiful aesthetics! Of course the top of the luxe list has to be sleek timber flooring, with its natural earthiness and beauty, it’s a timeless classic that will not only last for decades, but possibly add value to your home. It’s hard to beat the extensive range of stunning colours and finishes, from blackbutt to spotted gum, you’ll fall in love with these planks so hard you won’t want anyone walking on them!

If you’re are on a budget, laminate flooring is a great option while providing high durability – and it’s super easy to maintain and available in a great range of designs. Or, combine both – with the super-stylish Hybrid flooring. You can totally transform not only your living room into a luxury space, but your entire house with this designer-loved modern luxe flooring! It combines the best attributes of both laminate and vinyl, but with a timber look. The result? A floating floor product that can be installed throughout the entire home. Apart from its undeniably good looks, Hybrid is water proof, scratch and stain resistant. Floors: 1. Kids: 0!

2. Blinds

As well as providing privacy, insulation, light control and security, your window coverings are one of your living rooms biggest aesthetic influencers, and can totally transform a rooms interior and exterior from blah to luxe in a flash. Think stylish plantation shutters, unique earthy timber venetians, and contemporary vertical blinds. Use your home’s architectural style as a cue. For example, a Californian Bungalow can be brought to life with plantation shutters, while a wall-to-wall ocean view modern home might be more suited to venetians. There are so many great styles, fabrics, colours, textures and materials to choose from – and the results are incredible.

3. Cushions

So underrated, but so easy to transform the entire look and feel of your living space interiors. For a luxury look with homely shades, go for indulgent and textured fabrics in warm and rich colours, such as sapphire blue or emerald green velvet, chocolate faux fur, hand-woven and knitted charcoals or red silks and satins. Or spring into Spring with happy colours such as yellow, pink, teal, cyan and orange. While some prints lend themselves towards a more fun and playful look, particularly when teamed with bright and bold colours, intricate and detailed patterns, geometric shapes and fine art designs on quality fabrics such as fine cotton make a great statement, and can totally transform the look and feel of your entire living room. Similarly, raw and organic hemp, bamboo and cotton cushions in a palette of taupe, beige and browns will also add a luxury feel.
