How to make your home feel fit for a celebrity

If there’s one thing all property lovers enjoy, it’s peeking inside the homes of the rich and famous. Aside from being able to see how the other half lives and the outrageous features in their home, you can also draw some inspiration before you style your own home.

Here’s how you can give your home that luxe celebrity feeling:

The striking entryway

Impress potential buyers and tenants from the moment they step into your home by styling your entryway to make a statement. Keep it clean and uncluttered but add a point of focus, such as a large mirror or eye-capturing art piece. Natural light and white walls will help to make hallways feel more open, while ambient lighting can help set the tone for the rest of your house.

The butler’s pantry

Sure, in some Hollywood homes, the ‘butler’s pantry’ takes on a more literal meaning, but for us, this is typically a second, smaller room adjoined to your kitchen where you can store and prepare food.

While not every home will offer a second room, you can still get your kitchen looking spic and span – utilise any storage space you can to keep things tidy and clean. You could also look into transforming any unused kitchen real estate into a pantry to make your home more appealing during open inspections.

The home cinema

Have you always dreamed of having a home cinema? These days it’s not such an unrealistic idea. A plain white wall, digital projector and a few speakers will do the trick, giving you a functional home cinema in your living room without the expense of adding a new room. 

The walk-in wardrobe

Fashion-fiends will agree that a walk-in wardrobe would be the ultimate luxury for a bedroom, and while not every home will offer this, you can still maximise the space you have.

Look at installing custom-sized shelves inside your wardrobe, and drawer dividers will keep things looking neat. Simple and light-coloured wallpaper will also open the space, while an impressive automatic light can add some wow-factor.

You might not be living the full celebrity lifestyle right now, but with these minor tweaks your home will feel worthy of the pages of a magazine in no time at all.
