Adding a Touch of Elegance to Your Humble Abode

Touch Of Elegance

We can’t all live in a fairy princess’ castle or country estate, but regardless of who you are, where you live or the size of your budget, you can always add a touch of elegance and luxury to your humble abode. So, where to start? Here are a few ideas to get your imagination going.

Hot Tubs

Hot tubs are a signature status symbol. Why? Because they’re not strictly necessary but they are most certainly a lot of fun. What sounds more comforting than slipping into a warm pool of massaging bubble jets after a long day’s work? Or sipping fizz from a flute with your partner and friends on the weekends that you host the entertainment. Hot Tub Sales have gone through the roof in recent years and it’s not hard to see why. The surprising thing is, they can actually work out to be fairly affordable if you find the right provider and an efficient professional to install it. So get your bikini at the ready!

A roaring open fire will give any home a more comfortable and cozy feel. Imagine: curling up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate, wrapped in a blanket in front of the warm glow of the fireplace. If you already have a fireplace, make the most of it. Stock up on timber and invest in a chimney sweep to ensure everything is clean and ready to go. If you don’t have one, you can always have one installed. Call in a professional to check out your house and work out whether your home has any suitable walls. Installation is a relatively quick and affordable process.


If you have a wooden floor in your home, a high density, plush rug can add a beautiful touch to the room. Especially if you have a large, empty space in the center. Check out beautiful cream rugs with a thick pile. If you have children or pets, you might like to opt for a slightly darker shade, as blackcurrant juice and mud can prove difficult to clean out.


Coving isn’t something that you will generally notice when you walk into someone’s house. Why? Because most people don’t have it. It’s a tiny detail but it can make all of the difference when it comes to the overall look and feel of a room. It looks especially elegant in stunning white if you have dark, rich colored walls. For a traditional, decadent vibe, try out highly detailed and carved designs. For a more modern touch, keep them simple and sleek.

Say goodbye to your standard ceiling rose and pendant. It’s time to invest in a chandelier. Now, that’s not to say that you need a giant piece that looks like it belongs in the foyer of a palace. There are all sorts of takes on the traditional design widely available now. The crystals will refract the light beautifully across the room while twinkling and shining all the time. Consider placing one above the dinner table or in your living space.
