If you have the urge to splurge, here are four ways to make your home look and feel more luxurious.

1. Add a Step-In Shower

Bathrooms used to be merely functional spaces, but not anymore! Creating a spa-like atmosphere is the growing trend for bathrooms.

A tub/shower combination is standard in most homes, but more and more homeowners want a step-in shower and separate soaking tub. Investing in this change for your bathroom will not only increase your home’s value, but it will also bring you some luxurious bathing/showering options.

If you really want to have a luxurious bathroom, splurge for an ultra-deep soaking tub with a marble ledge. Investing just $3,000 into a bath/shower remodel will pay off at $1.71 for every dollar invested, according to Zillow.

Painting a floor
One of the easiest ways to refresh a room is to just paint the floor.

2. Paint Linoleum or Vinyl Flooring

Painting your linoleum or vinyl flooring is an inexpensive way to make your home look more luxurious. It can even give your laundry room a spice of luxury.

Gray and off-white are excellent colors if you’re stuck for inspiration. If you have, say, concrete floors, you can upgrade them by adding linoleum or tile and then painting it.

Visit your local tile supply store for an array of options; many of them have a virtual design tool if you want to add luxury tile.
