Whether you’re in desperate need of a style makeover, or you’re redecorating your room for the first time, there are lots of fun and imaginative ways to give your home a personalized touch. There’s nothing like coming home after the end of a long day to a place that’s all your own. With just a little bit of time and some creative ingenuity, you can create a space that shows off your unique personality. The following, are five clever ways to personalize the look of each room in your house.
1. Liven Up Your Living Space With Plants
One of the quickest ways to freshen up any space is by accenting the rooms with a touch of greenery or flowering plants. Whether you prefer smaller potted varieties or larger fronds, adding a touch of greenery will naturally give your home a refreshing makeover. Don’t worry if you lack a green thumb. There are plenty of indoor plants you can choose from that are quite hardy and don’t require much upkeep to truly thrive. Aloe plants, Chinese Evergreens, and Snake Plants are all hardy varieties that will liven up any room. If adding real plants to your living space still feels too challenging, consider purchasing a few artificial plants or flowers. Nowadays, you can find artificial plants at crafting stores that look and feel very realistic.
2. Freshen Your Walls With a New Paint Scheme
If you’re growing bored of your plain unfinished walls or drab wooden floors, consider adding a touch of limewash paint. Available in a variety of beautiful breathtaking hues, this particular type of paint features a modern matte finish, quicker drying time, and more durability than other leading paint brands. Another innovative feature of this paint is that it dries in a way that accentuates the natural beauty of wooden floors and stone walls. You don’t have to commit to painting every wall in your room to create a refreshing change. Consider painting an accent wall in your room to give it a fun pop of color. Choose a bright hue in order to create the illusion of space in a smaller room, or choose a dark rich shade to give your room a modern flair. There are many fun and creative ways you can customize your room’s paint job in order to create a look that’s all your own.
3. Display Your Collections
A great way to personalize the interior of your home is to display any sort of fun collections you may own. Whether it’s postcards and maps from all the places you’ve traveled, or it’s vintage music records, find a way to display your collection in an unexpected and creative manner. Consider framing your records and adorning your walls with them, or use floating shelves to display small trinkets or souvenirs. By displaying your collections, you are creating a conversation piece for your guests, as well as displaying a bit of your own unique personality.
4. Freshen Up Your Accents Pillows
One of the quickest ways to personalize a room is by changing out bedding, accent pillows, and throw blankets every other season. By rotating them out and replacing them with fresh new options, you can completely transform the look of any space. If you don’t have room to store such bulky items, consider purchasing duvet covers for blankets and themed covers for your accent pillows. This way, you can keep the same pillows and blankets throughout the year and simply switch out the covers to freshen your room’s look whenever you please.
5. Consider Your Lighting
Lighting can create the perfect ambiance in any room. It can also cast a harsh brightness if it is too bright or the wrong hue. Consider purchasing modern lighting fixtures and changing your lightbulbs to a softer shade. If investing in new lighting and hardware isn’t in your budget, consider stringing up a few fairy lights around your room to give it a playful sparkle. Neon lights are also a fun way to liven up a playroom or a child’s bedroom.
Personalizing the rooms in your home can pose a bit of a challenge if you’ve never done it before. Fortunately, with a little creativity, you can create a beautiful home that reflects your own unique personality and style.
