Making Your Home More Personal to You: What to Do


Do you want to make your home more personal to you? Maybe you’ve just moved in and you don’t want it to remind you of the past tenants anymore. Maybe you’re just tired of the current design. Whatever your reasons for wanting to make your home more personal, we’ve got you covered. Here are some tips to help you work out what to do:

Display Collections that Mean a Lot to You

Most people have some kind of collection that means a lot to them. Maybe you have some fancy perfume bottles or some figurines you’ve been building up for years. Why not display them on a shelf or bookcase if they mean a lot to you? Bear in mind that displaying too many of these can create too much visual clutter. That being said, showing off your favourite one could look nice if you do it the right way.

Put Up Pictures
Don’t let your home look like nobody lives there. Put up pictures of you, your family, and people you love! Displaying the special moments in your life through pictures is a great way to make your home more personal to you. They say having pictures of friends and family in the bedroom is bad for your feng shui, so maybe only do this in the living room if you’re into that.

Show off Your Favourite Artwork

Having artwork in the home will make it way more colourful and stylish. Artwork can look amazing in the bedroom, living room, hallway…just about anywhere in the home! You don’t need to go out and buy any picasso originals either. You can simply buy a print. If you’re arty yourself, you could even make your own. 

Use Your Favourite Colours and Patterns

Using your favourite colours and patterns in the home will show off your style and personality more. So many people say you should have neutral colours in the home, as they are easier to accessorise and will stand the test of time. However, this isn’t a rule you must stick to. Paint a wall bright red if you want. Use a crazy wallpaper. As long as it suits you!

Have Custom Furniture Made

Want furniture that looks exactly how you imagined it? Then have something custom from a place like Armadi Casa. You’ll have something really unique and nobody you know will have anything like it!

Include Life

Include life in your home. Have some of your favourite flowers in a vase, or look after a plant on your desk. You can even have a colourful bowl of fruit.

Use Accessories

Use accessories to show off your personality too. There are some really unique fixtures and fittings out there, as well as cushions, tables, and other kinds of accessories. No need to be the same as everybody else!

Making your home more personal to you should be a lot of fun, so make sure you get creative and show off your personality in a way you enjoy!
