If you’re looking to update your space and create a place that feels “like home,” add personal touches. There’s nothing quite like walking into a home where you know people are happy to be living there and have created a safe space they can call their own. Here are a few ways you can add that personal touch:
To add a personal touch to your home, consider the benefits of using unique pictures, whether they’re of your friends and family or beautiful trips that you’ve been on. Canvas prints are a great alternative to having to buy numerous frames for all your pictures and they can make your home look clean and sleek.
Gifts From People You Love
Throughout the years, your loved ones may have given you gifts and things. From art to trinkets from around the world, you may have a collection of items that have sentimental value.
Don’t let them stay in a box somewhere. Instead, let your friends and loved ones have space in your home through the collection of their gifts, adorning your home in different spaces or ways that are personal and uniquely you. Then, you can be sure that your loved ones will be happy to see their gifts displayed in your home.
Paintings From Friends
If you just bought a home or moved to a new apartment, you may be looking for new décor for your home. Instead of walking into Ross or some other mainstream department store to buy generic art, reach out to acquaintances or friends who may have creative talent and who would love to sell you some of their art.
If you don’t have any friends who paint or create art, look in your city for local artists that you can support while also getting some cool pieces to hang in your home.
“Décor” From the Kids
If you want to make your home especially personal and unique, consider creating artistry using your kids’ art. For example, you can use canvas prints of their art or create a sort of wall of “art gallery” where you portray the kids’ art while making it seem like the pieces are for sale.
Not only is this fun for the kids but it adds a highly personal touch that will make your kids proud of what they’ve created. This can be set up in your kids’ bedroom or in the hall—anywhere you can showcase it proudly.
Create a Collection
Some people like to create collections—they could be coffee mug collections, or they could be your favorite animal in the form of art and figurines. It’s a cute thing to do, and while it doesn’t even have to have meaning for you, it’s certainly a way to add a personal touch to your home, showcasing all the little pieces or items you’ve collected throughout the years.
It’s a fun way to collect souvenirs from your travels and to decorate your home with memories from special experiences throughout the years.
There are many ways to make your home feel like your personal space. From the décor you use to the works of art you hang, there are many ways to make a home feel like it was created perfectly for you.
You can accomplish this by working with an interior designer or doing DIY projects. From trinkets to paintings, make your home be the place that you want to come back to by adding your own personal touch to it—it will be amazing because it’s all you!
