Sunday, December 04, 2016

If you want your home to show off your personality, this guide is for you. Not everybody wants their home to look plain and neutral. That’s a good idea if you’re thinking of selling soon, but if you’re planning on staying for the foreseeable future, using the tips in this guide will help you. Here’s a guide to making your home look truly unique! 

Add Pops of Your Favorite Color

Don’t be afraid to add pops of your favorite color to your home. The majority of homes these days are decorated in neutral colors. This can look really nice, but it doesn’t exactly make a home look unique. By adding pops of your favorite color, you can make your home stand out. You can use as much or as little as you like to make a statement. 

Include Different Patterns

Having different patterns in your home can make it look really pretty and add to a theme that you like. You could use curtains, rugs, and even cushions to include this pattern. However, if you want more of it, you could wallpaper one wall. 

Contrast Colors and Patterns

If you’re brave, there are ways you can contrast the colors and patterns you use. You can find tutorials on this online if this sounds frightening to you. An easy way to contrast colors is to find a color wheel and use it to decide on your color scheme. Patterns can be a little trickier, but it’s definitely something that can be done. 

Mix Up Your Furniture

You don’t even have to match your furniture sets if you don’t want to. Mixing your furniture is a great way to add a unique feel, and it often looks much better than using one whole boring set in your home. If you prefer, you can have one uniformed thing about your furniture, such as your color or the shape. 

Add Unique Artwork

Unique artwork is a must if you want your home to look truly unique. Of course, you should actually like it too. It’s up to you if this is something you do yourself, commission from a local artist, or purchase from a place like Stories on Walls. With art, you can show people what you’re into and let your tastes be known. 

Try Some DIY and Upcycling 

It doesn’t matter if you’re a total DIY novice. There are definitely some projects out there you can feel confident taking on. Just search online and you’re bound to find something that appeals to you. You can even upcycle your existing furniture to transform it into something totally new. It’s really satisfying and a lot of fun to do! 

Don’t Forget About Texture 

One thing you mustn't forget about is texture. Texture stops your home from looking boring, adds personality and makes it feel cosy. Mix up as many textures as you like!
