11 Inexpensive Luxuries to Make Your Home Feel More Extravagant

We all deserve to live in an environment that’s comfortable, inviting, and relaxing. Unfortunately, many of the items and upgrades that would provide us the most comfortable conceivable experiences are also outside of the average person’s budget.

So what inexpensive luxuries are available to make your home feel more extravagant, without pushing your budget to the absolute limit?

The Cost of Luxury

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to live a life of luxury. In fact, we all deserve some measure of luxury in our private lives. The problem is cost; higher-end products and more lavish upgrades tend to be accessible only to the richest of the rich.

But as we’re about to see, some of the biggest improvements you can make to your home for comfort, health, and hygiene don’t have to cost a fortune – and most of them will be readily accessible to you, regardless of how much money you make.

Inexpensive Luxuries to Make Your Home Feel More Extravagant

These are some of the best inexpensive luxuries to make your home feel more extravagant:

1. A Bidet Attachment

Cleaning yourself with a bidet, instead of toilet paper, is a huge upgrade. Even if the experience is a bit unfamiliar to you at first, cleaning with water is more hygienic, more comfortable, and ultimately healthier. Installing a bidet in your bathroom could substantially improve your life in multiple ways. But what if you don’t have the budget to redo the plumbing of your bathroom and install a standalone bidet? Well, that’s what bidet attachments are for. With a bidet attachment on your toilet, you’ll get access to a comfortable stream of water to clean yourself with – without having to spend much money.

2. A Heated Toilet Seat

While we’re in the bathroom, consider upgrading to a heated toilet seat. This is especially valuable if you live in an area with a cold climate or particularly harsh winters. Sitting on a cold toilet seat is jarring and unpleasant, but if the seat is already warm and waiting for you, it turns into a luxury experience.

3. Better Storage Options

Many home environments feel depressing or overwhelming because they’re filled with clutter. But if you have better storage options available, you’ll have a much easier time staying organized and regularly decluttering. Shelves, drawers, hooks, and compartmentalized organizers can help you keep track of all your possessions without taking up much extra space. Best of all, many of these storage options are inexpensive – and you may be able to build some of them yourself.

4. Bigger, Thicker Towels

Never underestimate the luxuriousness of a bigger, thicker towel. Pampering yourself with the best towel you can afford after a long, hot shower is an experience that’s unrivaled by any cheaper counterpart. Buying higher-quality towels also means your towels will last longer, so consider it an investment.

5. A Robe

Even if you don’t think of yourself as a robe person, you might be surprised just how good you feel when wearing one. The only caveat is that there are many different types of robes, made from different materials, so you may have to experiment to figure out which robes are best for you and your needs. Still, even a simple robe can make you feel like a king or queen when you wear it around the house.

6. A Weighted Blanket

Weighted blankets are empirically shown to be useful in reducing anxiety and encouraging better sleep. They’re not for everybody, but they are inexpensive enough that everyone should be able to afford one. If you have trouble getting to sleep, or if your home environment makes you a bit anxious, this is an especially attractive purchase.

7. Handmade Artwork

Filling your house with art makes it more beautiful, classier, and more interesting. Unfortunately, art is expensive. But if you’re a creatively minded person, and you don’t mind taking a risk on buying your own materials, you might be able to make your own artwork. And if you know any friends who are amateur artists, you might be able to buy meaningful, yet affordable art from them as well.

8. Accent Pillows and Throws

Accent pillows and throws don’t cost much money, but they can instantly elevate the comfort of any room in your house. Also, because there are so many material, pattern, and color options, you can find the perfect aesthetic fit for almost any conceivable environment.

9. Nicer Curtains

You might be surprised at how much of an impact new curtains can make on the look and feel of a room. Investing in better quality can make your windows, and potentially the entire room, more attractive. While you’re installing them, consider raising the bar closer to the ceiling to establish a bigger sense of space.

10. Smart Landscaping

Landscaping can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. With a few smart changes, like introducing more native plant species, you can make your outdoor areas more beautiful without breaking the bank.

11. Indoor Plants

Indoor plants come with an assortment of health benefits. Being around indoor plants can provide you with higher indoor air quality, greater productivity, and a better overall mood. And because there are so many different types of indoor plants to choose from, you should have no trouble finding the perfect fit for each room.

Bonus Tip: Thrift!

Here’s a bonus tip for you: shop at thrift stores regularly. Thrift stores are great places to find luxury and high-end goods for more affordable prices, as long as you’re willing to buy used. Each shopping adventure is like a treasure hunt, and could be an opportunity for you to fill your house with something inexpensive, yet borderline decadent.

You don’t have to be a multimillionaire to enjoy the finer things in life or relax in an environment that’s truly comfortable to you. With some smart planning, and a willingness to make improvements to your environment, you can give yourself a luxury home experience on a budget.
