Your home is yours and it should look that way. Sometimes, however, you can live in a space for years and still have it look completely generic. Luckily it’s not hard to take action and make your home look and feel more like your own. Here are a few simple choices you can make to help your home exude your own personal style.
Choose Wallpaper Over Paint
Paint can be great, but it can also make your home look just like everyone else’s. While you may not want to wallpaper every room in your home, it can be a great way to bring a little interest into the space. Choosing a couple accent walls to accentuate with great wallpaper can help that space to feel entirely your own. Of course, CC + Mike recommends you choose wallpaper carefully and find designs that you absolutely love for your space, so that you don’t quickly grow tired of the pattern after just a few months.
Putting art up on your wall will immediately bring in your personal style and help your home to feel lived in and comfortable. Also, make sure that your art is lit appropriately so your guests can see it and so you can enjoy it every time you walk past. For example, Pierce Design + Build says that accent lighting is great for drawing attention to a piece of art in your bathroom. Cultivate your art collections so that it is full of items that will help you create your personalized home.
Update Your Hardware
The hardware on your cabinets is an easy thing to update and it can make a huge difference in the style of your home. Finding great hardware can be a lot of fun and it will give your home a whole new charm. According to Jojotastic, you can use the same hardware throughout your home, or you can switch things up from room to room. Whichever way you choose, make sure that you are sticking to a consistent style so it all comes together.
Your home should be the place that fits your personality better than anywhere else you go. And you have the power to make that happen! Take time to cultivate your personal style in your home so that you can enjoy your space to the fullest and feel comfortable every time you return to it.
