When it comes to decorating a home the amount of options available can be daunting to say the least. With so many decisions to choose from when it comes to things like textiles, colours, styles and more, you can find yourself spending more time than necessary trying to find the perfect fit for each room. Decorating doesn’t have to be hard though, especially with the fact that there are so many different ways you can spruce up a space and add a touch of your own personality (or anyone else’s) to each area of the home. Here are some key ways we love to add a bit of freshness and new life to a space.
If you’re looking for a dynamic way to make a space pop, consider painting your walls a variety of colours in different rooms. Of course a room with many colours of paint probably won’t work unless they’re complimentary, but if you make each room a different colour it can really help to create a great area for each member of the family to call their own. Not every wall needs to be painted and in fact the creation of one sole ‘feature wall’ can be a magnificent way to bring a space to life, working well in bedrooms, living spaces and kitchens/dining areas and almost any other room in the home. For an added speck of fantastic style, consider using wallpaper for interesting patterns or allow your teens to paint things like mandalas or their own unique art on the walls for a truly personal splash of life to their bedrooms.
Bedding and general textiles in the bedroom are a great way that every member of the family can have their individuality shown off on their terms. Generally textiles include things like curtains and cushion covers as well so you can always get everyone in the family to pick a different cushion cover for the couch in the living room, a family touch that will make the room feel homey. Add individuality to each bedroom or additional room like dens or bonus rooms by making each a different shade, theme or a combination of colours, like with the gypsy-come-bohemian trend that is popular among new age hippies. Allowing each member of the family a voice in creating their ideal room is a great way to make your house feel like a home.
To make your home feel extra special and like a safe space were your family can really relax and unwind, consider add ons (some of which are imperative), such as home insurance. A comprehensive contents and building home insurance plan will make sure that you can all rest easy knowing that your home is covered in the event of any potential issue such as break ins, fires or other unforeseen issues.
So if you’ve been wondering how you can really make your house feel like a home, these surefire ways will help you create the home you and your family have always dreamed of having.
