Your home is your castle, though it may not feel like one quite yet. Fortunately, there are plenty of items you can use to give your home an upgrade. They don't have to be expensive either; you can find most of these items for very reasonable prices. These seemingly small additions can make a huge impact on your decor and overall comfort. So go ahead, give yourself the life of luxury that you deserve!
Trays and platters for your belongings.
Things that are handed to one on a silver platter are the definition of luxury. But if you're more of a gold, wood, or ceramic person, that works too. You can use them for books and magazines, perfumes and care products, jewelry, candles, and vases, or anything your heart desires. Food trays are also excellent for serving guests (or breakfast in bed for yourself).
Wooden cutting board.
Reduce your plastic consumption and make your kitchen look more elegant with a wooden cutting board. They're also naturally hygienic, more durable, and offer better protection for knives. Plus, they can also be reused as food platters, so they're really a 2-in-1 product.
The mismatched, shabby-chic aesthetic can look really nice, but matchy-matchy will always win the refined award. Try and buy product groupings in sets, from furniture to small decor items like toothbrushes and soap holders.
You know you're getting fancy when your candle has more than one wick! Besides offering a great scent and a touch of luxury, multiple wicks will offer a more even burn, so you're getting more bang for your buck.
A reed diffuser.
Keep your home smelling good at all times with a small but elegant reed diffuser. They look great in bathrooms or on bookshelves. Their scent isn't as strong as a candle or an oil diffuser, but they do their job well in smaller spaces.
A milk frother.
Learn to recreate cafe drinks like lattes and cappuccinos with a milk frother, no espresso machine required. This handy tool will surely impress guests, and it may end up saving you a lot of money in the long run!
Throw cushions and blankets.
You don't need to go overboard, but a few decorative cushions will add character to your bed and/or couch. Plus, a blanket will make lounging around even more comfortable. Look for lush, rich fabrics like velvet, faux fur, or linen for the summer.
Fresh flowers or plants.
Liven up your home (pun intended) with some fresh flowers or plants. Don't worry about elaborate bouquets if you don't want to - the same kind of flower in the same vase works perfectly. Add them to coffee or bedside tables for an instant pick me up. And if you can keep the rest of the table empty to really let the flowers shine, even better!
These items will make staying home a lot more comfortable and enjoyable. So go ahead, stay in!
