Buying or renting a property doesn’t automatically make it feel like home, so what can you do to make your house feel more like a home? From major renovations to minor tweaks, there are plenty of ways to create an environment that’s more ‘you’.
To find out more, check out our top tips now…
- Display mementos
Your cherished items are properly stored away somewhere safe, but that means you probably don’t see them very often. Although we can’t bear to part with our sentimental keepsakes, we regularly store them in attics, basements or at the back of closets.
Instead of letting them gather dust, showcase your mementos in every room of the house. From glass trinket boxes atop of coffee tables to framed posters and movie stubs; there are endless ways to showcase your treasured possessions.
When you’re surrounded by memories, your house will immediately feel more like a home and you’ll enjoy the constant reminder of your happiest times.
- Use family photos
The rise of digital cameras and smartphones means we often view photographs electronically these days but displaying your photos is a sure-fire way to make your property feel more like home. Depending on how you choose to do it, you can work your displays into your interior design theme too.
Glass frames are ideal in contemporary rooms, while bright, polished metal frames give a great glam feel. If you have the space, using black and white images to create wall art gives a stunning effect and personalizes your décor too.
- Customize your furniture
When you’re choosing furniture, there’s no need to stick to off-the-shelf items. Customized furniture, like pieces from Joybird, give you the opportunity to add your own unique touch to the items that will adorn your home. From beds and wardrobes to couches and side tables; you can achieve incredible functionality and exquisite design when you opt for bespoke furniture.
The right furniture can add buckets of personality to your home, so be sure to choose carefully. Whether you want to create the illusion of space, draw the eye with a statement piece or incorporate space-saving innovations with hidden storage, customized furniture can be the perfect addition to your home.
- Choose a signature aroma
You probably already have a signature perfume or aftershave you wear regularly, so why not choose one for your home too? The right aroma can create a light, airy feel or a rich, decadent vibe, so it’s the perfect way to personalize your property.
With room sprays, mists and candles, you can make almost any aroma your home’s signature scent. For an environmentally friendly option, choose water-based sprays in glass containers or incorporate natural scents, such as flowers, into your home.
Creating your dream home
However you choose to decorate your house, it’s important to make it feel like home. By adding personalized mementos, carefully crafted furniture and signature pieces, you can successfully turn your house into a much-loved home for all of the family no matter your taste.
