Luxury interior designs are the designing of indoor spaces for luxurious, upscale houses, apartments and commercial property such as high-end hotels.
This type of interior design focuses on top of the line products such as expensive furniture, glamorous antiques and opulent artwork. Since the design budget is high or limitless in luxury interior designs, the designer has many options in choosing elegant lighting, furniture, flooring, cabinetry, fabrics and art. However, the challenge for an interior designer of luxurious spaces is in presenting a cohesive, yet impressive design that meets the client’s tastes, needs and expectations.
Luxury interior designs for celebrities, royalty or other wealthy people aren’t easier than creating interiors for those on a budget.
In luxury interior design, the spaces are often larger to work with and this can be challenging to designers in terms of scale. For instance, whereas a more modest home may have fairly large walls, luxurious homes often have gigantic expanses of wall space that can look too ordinary if left bare, yet too cluttered if groups of smaller pieces of artwork are placed there.
In luxury interior designs, the attention to detail is great, as even the smallest details matter. For example, a cheap, oddly colored plastic soap dish and wastebasket may not be that detectable in a modestly renovated, regular size bathroom, while in a grand, marble bathroom they may stand out like an obvious oversight.
Interior designers often create luxury interior designs around an architectural focal point such as a large, elegant fireplace in a hotel lobby or a sweeping staircase in a mansion’s entry hall. Luxury interiors don’t necessarily contain more furniture and accessories than more modest rooms. Rather, detail and scale must work together to enhance features and space.
