Every homeowner wants to find ways to effortlessly decorate their home, but when faced with the prospect of transforming your space, everything often feels too much.
In many cases, you don’t need to renovate or redesign, which can make you feel like there’s nothing you can do. However, most homes are all about the details, and if you want to make your home stand out as yours, you need to think about the small details that show off who you are.
Upgrade The Hardware and Fixings
Your hardware and fixings are not an issue that everyone thinks about, but upgrading something more exciting than your standard knobs and handles is an easy way to immediately change your home for the better. There are plenty of options available that offer something for every type of home. From contemporary to modern to something that no one (you included) has ever seen before, new hardware will make your drawers, doors, and cabinets pop. Likewise, updating fixings, even with a simple polish or coat of paint, can add some vibrant energy to any room in the house.
Leave Breadcrumbs of You Throughout
It would be weird to decorate a home without including photographs of you, your family, and your friends. However, not everyone has the wall space or desire to plaster massive photographs or even deliciously obnoxious portraits. Instead, you can make the most of the little areas of the home with Small Photo Prints. These breadcrumbs of you are small enough to go anywhere, from your fridge to running up your staircase. They are an excellent way to fill up empty wall space and they will grab attention whenever anyone walks past.
Create a Space For You
Whether you’re living alone, with a friend, or with your growing family, everyone needs a space to relax. Depending on the size of your home, this could be a spare room, or it could just be a little corner in the living room or bedroom. Creating this space can give you somewhere to sit, relax,m and switch off from the world. It doesn’t need to be much, but something comfortable and calming is the perfect antidote to a stressful day.
Grab Attention With Your Front Door
Your front door is the first thing people see when they arrive, so you may as well make it something that stands out from the rest. Painting your front door a different colour – especially one that is bright and vibrant – is fantastic for curb appeal. It draws attention immediately to your home for all the right reasons. You’ll also make it easier for guests and the postal worker to find your house. If you get bored of one colour, paint it something different for the coming season where you can mix or match with the weather to bring.
Your home is your chance to show off who you are, what you love, and what you’re all about. But don’t feel pressured to go big or go home. You can always share a little of yourself with your decoration and design, and in many cases, the more subtle, the better.
