When it comes to home updates and decorating, a lot of people may flock to their Pinterest boards or look for professional design advice to update their homes. This may leave your home looking refreshed and well-designed, but it may also leave you feeling like your own personality hasn’t been displayed enough. Following another person’s design advice is all well and good, but if you’re somebody who thrives off their own unique quirks when it comes to home interiors and updates, you’re going to want to put in your own personality as much as possible.
Here is a guide to how you can improve your home and decorate it while incorporating a little more when it comes to your unique tastes.
Paint Your Own Mural
If you’re considering how to update your walls and generic wallpaper, or pre-selected paint colors just aren’t cutting it, you could consider painting a mural yourself. You don’t need to be a master painter to make this happen, but maybe you’re worried about getting it right. The worst that can happen is you don’t like it – in which case, you can paint over it anyway and start fresh!
If you have those creative and artistic impulses, then a wall mural can not only be a great outlet for you, but it can also result in something truly unique that only your home has. Not only that, but it will be a million times more rewarding when you complete it and enjoy it for years to come than a standard painted wall would be. Your mural could be something simple like flowers and tree branches, or you may want to spend months on a truly special mural with extra detailing (like a fantasy world map!).
Try Bespoke Window Designs
If you’re thinking of home updates that can add value to your home as well as make your home eco-friendlier, window updates are no doubt at the top of the list. If you’re looking to have new windows installed, maybe you’re put off by generic designs or want your windows to have something a little different. You may then want to speak to professional window manufacturers regarding bespoke designs for your particular style of home.
Make Your Own Furniture
You can still add personality to your home through ready-made furniture and new furniture pieces, but this may not be satisfying if you’re looking for something that speaks to you and only you. You can browse antique or second-hand stores for more unique items, but if you want something that fully shows off your personality, you could try making your own furniture from scratch – or upcycling other pieces to give them a unique look with paint and accessories.
Display Personal Items and Memories
A great reflection of your personality is your own accomplishments as well as lifestyle interests – so including this in your design schemes is a must. You might want to display awards and certificates, photographs, or pop culture items that show off your personal interests.
