How To Give Your New Home A More Personal Feel

If you have just moved into a new home then you will most likely want to stamp your own personality on it. If it is a brand new house then it will be like a blank canvas to work with and if it’s a previously owned home then it will have the personality and memories of another family so it’s time to start your own. Stamping your own style and personality on your new home doesn’t have to cost the earth; here are a few tips to help achieve the look and feel that you want.

Don’t Be Afraid To Be Quirky

One of the biggest problems people have when they try to decorate their homes is that they conform to what everyone else is doing or what is popular in the furniture and DIY magazines. This is all well and good if you want your living room to be the spitting image of page 72 of IKEA but if you want your home to be unique then don’t be afraid to choose things that appeal to you, not what you think others will like.

Give Your New Home A More Personal Feel

Have A Sense Of Humor

A great way to let your personality shine through in your home is to get humorous wall signs and art which you and any visitors you have can enjoy. There are lots of signs to choose from bathroom wall hangings to metal highway style signs for your kitchen. Who wants to be serious all the time anyway, your decorations should bring a smile to your face.

Think Outside The Box

Of course everyone decorates in the usual ways by putting up pictures on their walls, buying tables, lamps, shelves etc but have you thought about getting some unique door knobs for each room of your house? There are websites that you can visit which allow you to get a door knob, handle or hook in any design that you like. You can also get them in a range of materials from glass, metal, brass and ceramics.

Show Off Your Passion

Have you got a passion or hobby that plays an important role in your life? Maybe you’re a huge supporter of a football team, you could be a massive Sci Fi fan or perhaps you’re an avid bird watcher. Whatever your passion you should include it in the decoration and personality of your house as after all that’s the thing you love doing and your home should tell people a lot about your personality.
