These decor elements make the home look more precious and add visual interest.
Making a home look more precious requires introducing elegant and luxurious elements. These are not necessarily too expensive as you think, but it requires opting for the ones with the best add-on value.

01. Add Statement Lighting
Statement lighting is and always will be one of the best and most classy ways to upgrade an interior adding that wow factor. Recessed the lights are great add-ons to have, but its the elegance of a statement pendant light that really makes heads turn and exudes that sense of luxury and refinement.
02. Add a Mirror
A large mirror is a statement piece that can add glamour in a split of a second. It is best placed somewhere where it can reflect light and make space seem larger. In any case, opt for one with a frame that will bring a worldliness to a space, creating a stunning focal point. Be bold and consider adding such mirrors anywhere from an entryway or dining room.
03. Add a Hand-Knotted Rug
Some people believe that Oriental rugs are somewhat old-fashioned looking and not a good fit for a contemporary interior. However, that’s far from true. Hand-knotted Oriental rugs may be indeed costlier, but they are certainly one of the most impressive ways to add subtle sophistication to space. They come in a vast variety of sizes, colours, patterns and designs and therefore, there’s bound to be one that will fit your style best. More importantly, their longevity to hard-wear and the sense of luxury that they add to space, making them a fabulous addition.
04. Add Orignal Artwork
Art. It doesn’t really matter if it’s an oil painting or a black and white gelatine photograph. Art is priceless. It reflects thoughts, emotions and feelings. Art is food for the soul. Therefore, if you really want your interior to stand out, look expensive and well-curated then it’s best to invest in great pieces of original artwork that you like best and are one of a kind.
