How to Inject Personality into Your Home
Everyone has their own unique personality that makes them who they are and is something to be celebrated. There are so many ways to express yourself and your uniqueness, from fashion choices to our hobbies. However, your home is another place to truly put your own stamp on.
When your home reflects who you are, it is much more likely to make you feel comfortable, which is essential for everyone who needs a place to unwind and to be themselves unapologetically.
With a few simple tips and tricks, you will be able to have a home that is uniquely you and that you can enjoy – and it doesn’t have to be expensive, either!
Focus on Color & Have Fun!
Changing the color of a room is an easy, low-cost way to inject some personality into your space, especially if you like the more vibrant things in life. Off-white or magnolia walls are a classic, but they can also be dull and dreary, so choose colors that are going to make you feel happy and fit in with any themes you are interested in doing.
Don’t be scared to go bold, try out a statement wall, or even use a mixture of shades – it’s your home, and if you are not a fan of the end result, you can re-paint it!
What’s more, you can truly have fun with your décor. You can display décor anywhere, and it should be things that make you happy and feel at home. So utilize the walls and fill them with artwork or photographs that speak to you, plaster memorable moments with family and friends all around, or even paint your own mural!
Don’t be shy when it comes to your hobbies and interests either – showcase them proudly. Taxidermy, clay pots, skulls, chandeliers… whatever it is, show it off around your house and think of creative ways to display them.
There are no set rules for what you need to do when it comes to the rooms you have, so don’t be constricted by social norms. While there will be some exceptions, such as plumbing, you can create whatever spaces you want and convert others into something new. For example, a loft conversion can be an excellent way to get more space in the home and give your home a fun edge. You can use it for anything, such as a craft room, a music studio, or an entertainment pad. Make sure to think about a loft ladder with handrail so people can access it safely.
Interesting and Unique Furniture
Furniture is the next ‘big’ thing to tackle when injecting personality into your home. If you are not into the look of generic, mass-produced, popular pieces, then finding furniture that has a story to tell could be the move for you instead. Head over to thrift stores, charity shops, flea markets, and even online marketplaces to find some hidden treasures to add to your home. From vintage coffee tables to retro rocking chairs, invite a sense of character into your home. The best thing about choosing old pieces is that you can mix and match them for a truly authentic look that reflects you.
