When we are decorating our homes, we often forget about the little details and just focus on the big picture. However, it is these smaller details that often help transform our home into something super unique and comfortable. Want to turn your house into a real home with cute, thoughtful touches? Here are five that can make an impressive home.
We often don’t take the time to consider everyday fabrics such as towels and bed linen when we are buying them. Which is strange when you think about it, as they are items we use every day. So it’s time to stop making do with cheap fabrics and investing in high-end hotel quality towels and linen. Investing in these is undoubtedly worth it, as they will last much longer than regular fabrics. And guests will notice the difference when they come to stay. They will be so comfy; they might not want to leave!
Handy Kitchen Appliances
If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen cooking and baking, you may be missing out on quality time with your family. To cut down on all the work you need to do in your kitchen, think about buying some handy appliances. Things like food processors and microwaves make it much quicker and easier to whip up your family’s favourite meals. There are so many appliances out there designed to make things much more convenient in the kitchen, so why not take advantage of them!
Jazz up your decor with some family photos. These are one of the best ways to add a personal touch to your decor. You can pick out your favourites and display them in photo frames. Alternatively, why not create a giant collage to hang on a wall? Another cute idea is to use your kids’ art. Ask them to paint a picture that you can frame for a wall. You might already have a fresh collection of your kids’ art on the refrigerator door. Think about taking one of these pictures and giving it pride of place in your living room.
It’s not just your kids who can create things for your home; you can do as well! If you are already a keen knitter or sewer, you could try making cushions and blankets to throw on your sofas and armchairs. Not only will these make your rooms feel very cosy, but they also give you a fantastic chance to show off your handiwork to guests. Never picked up a needle before? No problem; there are lots of kits for beginners to start off with.
Get Quirky With Colour
Lots of people use colour as a way of injecting some personality into their home interiors. The quirkier you are with it, the more ‘you’ your rooms will feel. Think about creating a focal wall by painting one wall a brilliant colour. Leave all the others in the room fairly neutral so that the focal wall pops out.
Your home will never feel dull again!
