Whether you have moved into a new house or you’re renting a property, you will want to make the property feel like home, so you can relax. In order to do this, you need to transform the living space into an area that is more comfortable, by making it personalised. However, how can you personalise your living space, especially if you are renting the property and have limitations? Fortunately, we have put together a short guide on how to personalise your living space, below.
Add Wall Art
If you are renting then you are probably unable to paint the walls in the property, and if you have just moved into a new house, you may want to save painting the walls to another day. Therefore, for now either add wall art that you really like to the walls or get creative and make your own custom printing on a canvas to hang on the wall. Therefore, you can add your personalised touch to the rooms of your choice, without breaking any rules. Custom printing is also a fun activity, which is perfect if you are looking to be creative!
Whether you have an old sofa or you just want to coordinate the furniture in your living space, you can upholster the furniture. Either use colours that work with the rest of the interior or make a bold statement in one room. You can add tassels and fringes to make a bespoke design. Block colours or striped designs work really well too. This is a fun and creative way to personalise your living space.
Hang Personal Pictures
If you have lots of pictures of you, your friends and family (or even pets), hang them around the house in different rooms and put them in frames on side cabinets and coffee tables. Not only do these add a personalised touch to your space, but will make the house feel like home as you can regularly see familiar faces whichever room you are in. If you don’t have many pictures, print them off and frame them, or have them printed over a canvas to put in your property. This is a sure way to put a smile on your face and make you feel more comfortable in your living space.
Add Plants And Flowers
Today, adding greenery in your property, including plants and flowers, is becoming more and more popular. What’s more, having plants in your house comes with a number of benefits. These include reducing stress, purifying the air, health benefits, increasing humidity and sharpening creativity and focus. Not only do they bring the living space to life and add that personalised touch, but they have numerous advantages too.
Scatter Cushions and Throws
Soft cushions and throws not only make your home more comfortable and relaxing, but they help you to personalise the space too. You can colour co-ordinate the pillows and throws in each room to the walls and other furniture. What’s more, scatter pillows show a personal touch, as opposed to just a sofa, bed or chair with no cushions added.
There are so many ways to make your living space personalised. Follow these simple tips or use them as inspiration and you will have your house or rented property feeling cosy and home-like in no time.
