The Greatest Luxury Upgrades for Your Home in 2022

Making a home luxurious is more than just buying the most expensive pieces and materials you can find. Luxury has a different meaning for each of us. Some consider having running water in their home a luxury, others think that luxury is having the painting of a famous painter in their home.

If your goal for this year is to make your home more luxurious, you’re in luck because we decided to make a list of all the greatest luxury upgrades for your home in 2022. 

Without further ado, here are some of the best home luxury updates for 2022. The greatest luxury upgrades for your home in 2022.

Enhance the entryway and exterior

To set the mood for the rest of your home, let’s start from the entryway. Your front door is the first thing that everyone sees, and let’s face it, first impressions matter.

Since the goal is to add luxury upgrades to your home, start by replacing your current door or at least giving them a bit of a makeover. 

Once you’ve done that, you can work on transforming the exterior of your home by installing faux stone veneer or simply by giving it a fresh coat of paint. Upgrading the siding of the house can also be considered a luxury upgrade to your home. Also, keep in mind that sometimes pressure washing the exterior of your home can significantly improve its look. 

The next on the list would be improving the lighting and other accents. In addition to ambient and accent lighting, don’t forget to install safety lighting as well. Replace your house number for something more luxurious and door hardware as well – for example, luxury solid brass hardware is currently very popular.

Build a home addition

If you feel a bit cramped in your own home, maybe it’s time to build an addition. Experts from Bounds Constructions can help you a lot with this. 

Maybe you need space for your in-laws, maybe you need entertainment space or maybe you want a larger master suite – whatever the reason for needing an addition, building it can be considered a luxury upgrade.

Building an addition to your home, if done properly, can increase the value of your home, should you one day decide to sell. This is why you should leave the building to professionals.

Change flooring

Installing nice flooring in your home is one of the most luxurious upgrades you can do in your home. It may not sound luxurious – to change the flooring, but when all is done, it will be.

If you really want to splurge, you can go for hardwood flooring as the ultimate luxury upgrade. The stone flooring is a close second, luxury-wise, but it gives a cold and cave-like look to your home, so we recommend hardwood.

If you want the luxury look but for much less money, consider installing luxury vinyl or laminate. Both of these flooring options do a great job imitating hardwood flooring, plus they are less expensive, easy to install and maintain.

Add crown moulding or wainscoting

The easiest and most cost-effective way to add a touch of elegance and luxury to your home is by installing crown moulding or wainscoting. If you already have it in your home, you can upgrade it and make it look new with a bit of paint.

The great thing about crown moulding is that it can fit almost any room style. However, if you’re going for modern, consider going without it or using a very narrow and simple style of moulding.

Another thing to consider, if you opt to install crown moulding, is the size of the room. Installing moulding in a small room can overwhelm the space. While in a larger room you can play around with layering moulding or go for something more elaborate.

All in all, adding crown moulding or wainscoting is a great way to embellish your home and make it luxurious and elegant.

Upgrade plumbing fixtures

Upgrading plumbing fixtures in your kitchen and bathrooms is a relatively inexpensive way to bring more luxury to your home. A sleek modern design, with popular materials and colours, is a great way to upgrade your bathroom without spending too much money on remodels. The same can be said about the kitchen as well.

There are a great number of faucet styles to choose from, so think about what would fit your bathroom or kitchen style. Also, consider the finishes of the faucets. Most of them come in several finishes that you can choose from – polished chrome, brass, brushed nickel, rubbed bronze, and many more.

Upgrade lighting throughout your home

Just like changing plumbing fixtures is a great way to upgrade your bathroom and kitchen, changing and upgrading lighting fixtures throughout your home can be a huge luxury upgrade.

Lighting is an ideal way to set the mood in any room of your home. But not only that, lighting fixtures can be great decoration pieces. Just think about installing a beautiful glass chandelier in the foyer of your home or above the dining room table – nothing screams more class and elegance than seeing something like that in a home.

Then again, if you don’t want an intricate chandelier, you can opt for something simpler and more modern like a minimalist pendant light. Floor lamps are also a great way to add light and style to the room.

When installing or upgrading your lighting, make sure you have all three types – general, task, and accent. Combined these three types can nicely light any area in your home.

And there you have it – both small and large upgrades that can transform your home into a luxury haven.
