Your home is, above all else, your personal space. It’s the one area in which you should always be able to express yourself, whether that’s in terms of your feelings or in terms of your style. While not everyone has the budget to customize the walls and physical structure of their home, there are plenty of ways to add your own flair. Below are four ways you can customize your home’s interior without blowing out your budget on renovations.
Curtains are a very overlooked part of the design process. The right curtains can provide a lovely background to a room and have a great deal of control over the color scheme. Whether you are looking for something neutral that allows other colors to pop or you’d prefer something with a bit more life, all it takes is a few tools to add curtains to a blank space. Green curtains work well for a creative space, whereas reds can be homey and comfortable when paired with brown and grey furniture.
Most homes have pictures of some sort. If you’re looking to really put your stamp on the space, though, you should look at frames for personal artwork or family photos. Customized frames can be a great addition to your home, allowing you to get your favorite pictures and pieces of artwork up on the wall in a manner that’s as unique as the home you seek to create. Great custom frames can actually work with the images within to create different effects. Oval frames are great for framing portraits, and metallic finishes work well on frames for printed text.
The right rug can really bring a room together. It’s one of the easiest things to add to a room because it requires no installation – put it down in the right spot and you’re finished. Just like with the curtains, rugs can have a strong influence on the color scheme of a room. If you have lots of strong colors already present, using a plain and mellow color is best to bring those out. However, if you’re looking to add more personality to a bland room, a vibrant rug can add a lot of flair.
You should always make sure that your couches are comfortable before worrying about the appearance. Once you have something comfortable and useful, though, you can make it look great by adding couch covers. These covers serve two purposes, protecting the couch while bringing the piece in line with the rest of your decor. You can use them to add color, patterns, and even softer touch to your couch. These can also protect your couch against pets and normal wear and tear.
You don’t have to demolish anything to customize the look of your home. Use simple accent pieces and lovely main pieces in order to make any room stand out. With a little work, you can make your house into a personalized canvas that really emphasizes your style, making it your home.
