Listen, just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a slice of the good life.

Furniture stores and furniture liquidators have so much untapped potential when it comes to adding designer touches that won’t leave your pockets dry.

In desperate need of a tennis court or helicopter pad? These tips might not be for you. If you’re interested in learning some small-scale tricks you can do to get the luxurious look you want, we got you covered.


Quality Over Quantity

A lot of times, less is more. When you’re trying to build a high-end ambience in your home, don’t feel like you have to go all in.

Add high-end materials wherever you can and in small doses. A little splash of luxury can go a long way in making your space look polished and sophisticated. That may come in the form of a leather couch with a coffee table that has minor marble detailing. It’s all about how you put your high-end materials together, not how many there are.

Spend some time at furniture stores and furniture liquidators to locate sale pieces as well. Sometimes there are one-offs that can add that extra oomph you’re looking for. Have some fun with it and don’t feel like you need a perfect matching set to pull it off either.

Attention To Detail

Putting together a luxurious look for your space means thinking like a designer. There’s no need to tear everything from the ground up, sometimes all it takes is a careful eye.

Examine the space you’re trying to spruce up carefully and find out what’s missing to get your desired look. More times than not, you’ll find that the small things add up quickly. Maybe there’s a coffee table that would look great with golden knobs for the drawers. It could be a decorative mirror that opens up the space and gives it that “je ne sais quoi.”

There are plenty of furniture stores and furniture liquidators that offer all kinds of smaller pieces that can make a difference. You can also try looking into vintage or second-hand shops to get unique pieces that you likely won’t find anywhere else.

If you find a unique piece that really inspires or intrigues you, chances are someone else will feel the same way. Make your details a talking point, something interesting that adds character to your space and gives it life.

Never Miss a Good Sale

We touched on this earlier, but in order to really put together the luxurious look you want — you have to be somewhat of an opportunist.

Recognize a good deal when you see one. Head down to some local furniture stores and furniture liquidators to get a feel for what’s out there. The time you spend at these places is never wasted if you’re always keeping your hand on the pulse.

Also, keep in mind that furniture liquidators give you an opportunity to get the very best prices. This is a great way to land an awesome deal on something that otherwise might cost a lot more at its regular retail price.
