7 Little Things That Will Make Your Home Feel Fancier

1. Swap Out Soap Dispensers

Bring a touch of luxury to any bathroom by swapping out your plastic soap dispenser with one that doubles as a piece of art! Find a marble, ceramic, or glass dispenser that matches your decor, then add your favorite hand soap.

I like using different scented soaps during different seasons, like floral scents in the spring and spicier scents in the fall. And as an added bonus, refilling your soap dispensers with soap refills can help you save money and cut down on plastic!

2. Upgrade To Cloth Napkins

Even if every other detail of your dinner party is carefully considered, passing out paper napkins can ruin the vibe. Upgrading to reusable cloth napkins can lend a more luxurious feel to your festivities (especially if you take a minute to fold them using one of these easy napkin folds!)

And while cloth napkins feel fancier, many are machine washable, making them quick and easy to clean. They’re also better for the environment than disposable paper napkins.

3. Elevate Plants

Indoor plants not only offer plenty of health benefits, they’re also extremely trendy right now! Make your favorite houseplants the centerpiece of any room by setting them on stylish plant stands.

Don’t be afraid to play with various heights. (You might even consider a hanging planter!) Like a beautiful frame around a piece of art, a chic plant stand can help your houseplants shine.

4. Elongate Curtains

Try hanging your curtains 6-12 inches above the top of your window frames, and make sure the curtains are long enough to reach all the way to the floor.

This simple trick creates a visual effect that can make any room look bigger! Learn more about this and other curtain tips here.

5. Incorporate Texture

An assortment of materials like wood furniture, glass decor, metal fixtures, and woven rugs (on the floor or even hung on a wall) can all work together to give a room a more luxurious feel. Try mixing and matching different textures and materials to bring each room to life.

Look for new budget-friendly pieces at thrift stores or discount home goods stores like TJ Maxx. It’s an affordable way to freshen up your decor in rooms that feel a bit outdated.

6. Update Cabinet Hardware

Have you seen the bright, patterned handles and pulls some people swap out on their kitchen or bathroom cabinets and drawers? I just love that little pop of color!

Investing in new hardware is a super quick and easy way to update a room. And check out this post for more cabinet ideas and inspiration!

7. Try Tile

A tile backsplash is a bold way to add a modern and refined look to your kitchen. And it may surprise you to know that you can create one in your home without any major construction or permanent installation!

Look for affordable stick-and-peel tiles, which are available in hundreds of designs online. You can even find them in many home improvement stores.
