How to Make Your Home Look Luxurious on a Budget

Posted by Glenn Bancroft

Finding a tenant for your rental property can be difficult, but you can make it easier by adding a touch of luxury to your decor and landscaping. If you’re looking for ways to make your property more attractive, these tips can help. It’s also important to work with a property management company in Tuscon AZ that understands your needs and can help you maintain your property to attract the best clients.

Refresh Your Landscaping

Shabby landscaping can turn tenants away before they ever walk through the door. Invest in perennial flowers and add some mulch to give your flower beds the touch of class that you’ve been wanting. Don’t worry about packing flowers in – leave space between shrubs to allow flowers to grow.

Decorate With Neutrals

Neutral colors are luxurious and also practical. New tenants also like neutral colors because they can match anything. Gray, white, black and shades of beige are favorite neutrals that can create a statement while also blending into the background. Choose a palette that is both understated and classy, elegant and sophisticated.

Shop for Inexpensive High-End Materials

You don’t have to spend a fortune to buy high-end materials for decorating your home. Look for used items that can be refurbished. Old items can bring an old-world beauty to your luxury home. Look for furnishings made of hardwood, marble and iron. Be prepared to refinish them, and then enjoy their beauty.

Update Lighting

Lighting is important because it’s essential for good quality of life, and because good lighting makes homes look more attractive. Update your home’s lighting by installing new and creative light fixtures. Creative pendant lighting makes a splash in any room, especially in areas like the dining room and kitchen. Want to impress potential tenants? Try installing pendant lighting in the bathroom over the vanity, or in the bedroom.

Add high-end touches like light dimmers. These devices don’t cost a lot more than standard on/off switches, but they can help you create an ambiance that can attract tenants.

Hang Statement Art

You don’t have to spend a fortune to find art that can make your walls stand-out. You also don’t need to buy many art pieces – a little goes a long way. Shop flea markets and online sales for the right canvas to hang over a fireplace or in an entryway.

Update Hardware

Old cabinet hardware can drag down the appearance of your kitchen, bathroom and other parts of your home. Updating hardware doesn’t cost a lot and can make a good impression in any room of the house. When shopping for hardware, be sure to find pieces that will fit into the existing holes on your cabinets. If you buy hardware that doesn’t fit, you’ll have to make dramatic changes to the doors and drawers of your cabinets.

Find a Property Management Company that Makes a Difference

Of course, the best way to ensure that your property has a touch of luxury is to ensure that it’s well maintained. Work with a property management company in Tuscon AZ with a good reputation and a long list of happy customers.
