Many of us love the idea of decorating our home exactly how we like. Enabling the house or flat to become an extension of our personality in some way. Your home is the place that you should feel at ease in. One where you feel like you are ready to relax and be totally yourself in.
However, we can all end up following decorating trends and doing things differently that our homes then lose their hearts. So here are some of the ways you can decorate and make it personal to you.
Decorate to your tastes
When it comes to a home you have just moved into, or one where you have moved in but haven’t had much spare time to do anything else, the way it has been decorated may not be to your taste. Your home is an extension of who you are, so make sure you get the chance to add your own spin on things.
From the colour of the walls, to thinking about the flooring there are options to consider. More people are using laminate floors as a modern approach, and changing up light features for quick and easy fixes. What would you do?
Personalise your home
A home can be seriously lacking in heart if there is no personality to it. So it might be time to take a quick look around and see if the house is evident that it is yours and your families? Pictures in frames, trinkets on display, things that mean something to you such as quotes and colours.
There are so many ways that you can personalise your home and decorate it to your taste. Making it obvious the house belongs to you. Feature walls and displays are a great way to do it, which brings us to the next point.
Make a feature out of your memories
Have you got a lot of pictures in frames that you love and you don’t know how to display them? Do you have prints and quotes that you want to display together in a prominent location? This is when you can consider making a feature out of your memories. Things like your pictures can be easily made into a feature wall. Displaying trinkets on shelves and making a feature out of the display is also a great way to do it. You will be able to find some inspiration for shelf displays online.
A minimal home could be the way forward
Finally, could a minimal home be more your thing? Often we can be distracted and end up collecting more clutter than we would like in our homes, so it may be time to start decluttering and bring more soul back to your home.
Getting rid of piled up magazines or papers, decluttering the things you no longer want or need and considering donating them or selling them online. It could make a world of difference to the atmosphere that is created in your home and make it feel more at peace.
Let’s hope this has given you some inspiration for how you can add a bit more heart to your home.
