A luxurious look for your mobile home is great, but sometimes it comes at too high a cost. Fortunately, there are plenty of luxury home hacks out there just waiting for someone to discover them, and who doesn’t need a few hacks in their life? We know we could use a few every once in a while, and you probably can, too. So, let’s discuss a few hacks that’ll make your home look luxurious no matter what you have to work with.
#1: Get some metallic spray paint
An easy and cheap way to give worn-out or unimpressive decor a luxury look is to grab some gold or silver metallic spray paint and give your plain decor pieces a quick makeover! Of course, you don’t need to limit yourself to gold and silver. Copper, brass, and nickel color tones are also good options for different types of decor. This little project won’t cost you much, and it’ll give your home a major upgrade. It’ll look so good that you’ll forget it’s just spray paint sometimes!
#2: Pick up some inexpensive vintage decor
Vintage decor is a trend right now. So, instead of spending a ton of money on pieces made to look vintage, try your luck at thrift stores and local garage sales. You’re likely to find truly vintage decor at a lower cost, like vintage posters or old license plate collections. At the very least, you’re sure to find items that’ll pass for vintage or antique decor, like fashionably worn furniture that just needs a little TLC.
In addition, you can find some low-cost vintage-themed posters at a few different websites. EasyArt is a good example of a site to try.
#3: Use long curtains in your mobile home
Curtains that cover your windows from the ceiling to the floor are a must-have for a luxury look. Why? These extra-long curtains make it look like the ceiling of your home is much higher than it is. This is especially good for mobile homes, since it’ll help give a smaller mobile home a more spacious look.
#4: DIY throw pillows that look just as good as expensive ones
Throw pillows are an easy way to look like you’ve got a little extra money – especially if they’re the expensive kind. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend much money to get this look. Instead, check up on what expensive throw pillows look like, and then copycat their designs to make your own! You can do this by purchasing some fabric that you like and sewing your own throw pillows. If you need help completing your pillows, finding DIY tutorials is quick and easy.
#5: Change up your lighting situation
Creating luxury isn’t all about decor pieces – it’s also about how you see them. Any luxurious atmosphere looks even better in dimmer light. How can you achieve dim, moody lighting in your home? Simply install light switches that allow you to brighten and dim your lights at will. It won’t break the bank, and it’ll make a big difference in the luxury look of your mobile home.
#6: New light fixtures
Speaking of lighting, you should also change your light fixtures while you’re installing new light switches. You don’t have room for frumpy, out-of-fashion fixtures anymore. Moving on to newer, more innovative designs is a great way to make a luxurious look happen.
#7: Add some potted plants or bouquets of fresh flowers
Potted plants and fresh flowers are a part of every luxury home design, which means you shouldn’t overlook them in yours. A few small potted plants here and there will do, whether you choose hanging pots or a small window garden. If you prefer fresh, cut flowers instead, choose vibrant, colorful bouquets and place them in parts of your home that need a pop of color. Plants and flowers are a cheap and easy way to bring luxury to your mobile home!
