People tend to overlook just how creative they can get with their home decor. Many people stick with whatever their home had before they moved in, and others might do very simple decor changes such as adding picture frames.
However, if you really want to express yourself through your home decor and do something unique, then you’ve gotta go custom and try something new. So in this post, we’re going to take a look at a few ways that you can get more personal with your interior design choices and still have it look great.
Avoiding gaudy trends unless you really want to embrace it
The safe option is to simply go for trends that don’t look gaudy. In other words, you want to try and avoid anything that looks extremely over-themed. You also want to try and avoid buying matching sets of anything–especially furniture! This can look really boring at times and will be overwhelming because of the similar design and colour.
You also want to make sure that you’re taking a good look at your colour choices. Colours that clash will look gaudy and it’s extremely difficult to make them work together unless you know exactly what you’re doing. While some people might find it charming to use loads of different colours, it ultimately looks strange and you’ll want to try and avoid it at all costs.
Get things custom made or go DIY to add a personal touch to your home
A great way to express your creative decor ideas is to just do things yourself or get a service to make things custom. For example, you can try made to order custom blinds if you’re looking to create an indoor/outdoor entertainment area, or you can build your own shelves using scrap pieces of wood to introduce a rustic element to your home. There are so many different things that you can do once you move past the restrictions of buying things that are pre-made.
However, it does take a bit of extra investment to get custom things added to your home. Custom-made items usually cost a little more and there’s a bit of extra time involved to design and create them. Similarly, you’ll need to learn a few DIY skills if you want to make your own things like a shelf or table, and you’ll also need to buy the tools to do it.
Get creative with new renovations to transform your home
Home renovations are a great time to change up the decor in your home because you can still afford to make mistakes and change things later in the process. For example, if you’re laying down a new floor to go with your conservatory design, then you can still change it after the floor has been laid. If you really don’t like your choices, then you can just swap it out for something else. You’ll never know until you try–so don’t be afraid to experiment with decor changes during a renovation!
