Let’s say you’ve bought your new home and something doesn’t feel quite right. You’re wondering what it is? The apartment is big, tidy, and cozy, it has a great view overlooking the river, so what could it be then? Well, it’s probably the strangeness and otherness of it that seems so wrong. You still haven’t turned it into your home. That being said, it’s time to make your place stand out from the long list of typical boring apartments. You’ve seen them all and there’s no need to overemphasize the fact most apartments these days look like boring twins. Check out the article below and get to know 3 ways you can add a personal touch to your new home so it feels like yours truly.
Your home = children’s art gallery
Decorate the walls of your apartment with children’s drawings. It doesn’t matter – it can be your own children, relatives, or children of your friends, what’s important is – you’ll have a collection of unique artwork filling the boring emptiness of your apartment walls. The best part about it is it’s almost absolutely free unless you want to reward little artists, which is still pretty cheap. Motivate your kids to be creative. Who knows? You might’ve paved their way to becoming great artists in the future. Even if that doesn’t happen – good clean family fun is guaranteed.
Go DIY! Make your own furniture
There’s no need to spend an enormous amount of cash buying bulky, impersonal furniture no one enjoys. Become an artist yourself. Make a neat little table by using old hi-fi speakers or install an indoor swing by using a couple of knots and some cloth. Internet is crowded with great recipes for unique furniture your guests will certainly adore. So, what are you waiting for? Get your DIY tools ready and build your own furniture.
A botanical garden inside your home
Okay, there’s no need to make a mess. But, adding a few greens here and there can make your place fresh and clean. If you have a terrace – make it the most beautiful terrace in the neighborhood by installing some plants. It will make your home more recognizable even from the street. Also, you can grow your own cooking herbs which makes your green project even more practical. Apartments nowadays seem so impersonal and alienated that even a single plant could make them seem brighter and more human-friendly.
So, there you have it. A few ways you can add a personal touch to your new home. Awake your inner artist and have a blast decorating your apartment. Make your guests feel like they’re in a children’s art gallery, DIY workshop, and a botanical garden at the same time. Best of luck with making your home artsy and unique.
