We all want our house to feel more like a home. Of course the family and friends that step foot through your door make your space feel more homey, but the way your home looks can also have a huge effect on the way it feels.
Personalizing your home’s interior is a step in the right direction. That includes:
- Hanging and displaying pictures of your family throughout your home
- Adorning bookcases with meaningful knickknacks
- Decorating using colors, fabrics, and furniture that you love
But, personalizing a space isn’t the same as customizing it. If you really want your house to feel like a home, you have to customize its interior by following these tips.
When it comes to customizing your home’s interior, it’s often about the details. Unfortunately, many of those details are overlooked. One example is the blinds that are hung in the windows.
Many people take a trip to the local hardware store and pick up a few blinds in the right size. However, they do little to enhance your home’s interior.
Instead, opt for custom blinds. They can be ordered in custom sizes, and they can even come in specialty colors and patterns, giving your home a customized touch.
Refinish Kitchen Cabinets
Replacing all the cabinets in the kitchen is a great way to customize a space, but it’s time consuming and expensive. The next best thing is to refinish them yourself.
There are many ways to give your cabinets a custom look. You can simply repaint them, or you can strip down the wood and refinish it in a different color. If you really want a custom look, consider using removable wallpaper on the doors of the cabinets!
DIY Built-In Cabinets
If you are handy, you may want to try a more challenging project. DIY built-in cabinets are a good option!
Although they do require some knowledge of woodworking, they can be much easier to install than you think. Especially if you purchase bookcases and modify them to fit into your living room, bedroom, or dining room. They look especially stunning in a basement space.
Try a Faux Finish
There’s no doubt that painting the walls is a great way to personalize a space, but if you want to customize your space, you have to think outside the box.
Faux painting techniques can make your home truly one-of-a-kind. A few painting techniques include:
- Venetian plaster
- Metallic plastic
- Manda Mudd
- Textured sand
These techniques aren’t as difficult as you think either. In many cases, using a washrag, modified roller, and specialty sponges are all you need to get a striking effect that you won’t find in anyone else’s home.
Take the time to personalize your home to give your space a special touch, but if you really want your interior space to stand out, you have to customize your house. With these tips, it’ll look like your home was built and decorated just for your family!
