It is not an activity of buying the new furniture and a matching paint color on the walls. To give you home that amazing personal touch you need to know all the aspects of the home decoration and then go about giving each a particular your very own signature style. In essence, you want to have your home feel like your personal space and not cold and impersonal.
Personalization of the decor is the key to everything, and that can be achieved by keeping in mind a few things. Let us look a few things that you need to be aware. Let us begin thinking about walls. Wall color is one thing that you need to be aware of but more importantly what goes on the wall is important.
So make sure that you put some personal items like family photos on the walls to give that family touch. You may need to get the frames of the family photos redone to gel with the new decor. Also, make sure that you do not overdo family photos mix and match it with some other art pictures and portraits.
The corners of a home are critical do not leave them empty have a particular corner edge furniture piece made or a glass mantle piece on which you can have a few small mementos or keepsakes displayed. That will give the place a very special touch.
A lot of times the bathrooms are ignored so make sure that bathrooms have your special touch to it. Select your bathroom rugs, bathroom accessories and even towel stands by yourself. They should reflect warmth and should go well with the decor. You can even pick a theme to go with the overall decor of the room, read up on the best home decor ideas for more.
Kids room is a unique area which you should reflect some amount of disorderliness. It is important that the child’s room should not look like that it has been transplanted straight out of a magazine.
If you’re looking for some great pieces of furniture, like art deco, or even Victorian era styles, I strongly suggest you take some time to browse the selections online. You might find it nicer to feel the pieces at your local store, but the selection will be far from superior. The other cool thing about buying online, especially from a place like eBay is that you won’t end up buying the same piece of furniture that hundreds of other people in your town have (because you all bought them at Walmart). I like uniqueness–something that is different and reflects my style preferences (not the preferences of the Walmart design team).
Another great place to find home decor is Overstock. They don’t have the uniqueness of eBay, but often they do have some pretty nice selection at prices far less than the typical store prices. Their quality varies, so you’ll need to be selective. I bought a down comforter from them and used it on my bed all the time. It’s lovely and light, but I do get my dose of down feathers floating around the room. So do look carefully at the quality before buying online. Often you can return things, but having to do so requires more expense and hassle.
The kitchen is another area where you might want to go with a special touch. Use the top of the refrigerator to keep flowers or plants for that added touch. Pick the kitchen countertop color which should be matching with the overall color of the home decor. Make sure to add some unique decoration piece on the top of the kitchen centerpiece to give added a warm feeling to the decor.
