Creating the perfect home setting for your family is one of the greatest joys of adulthood. When you come to redecorate your home this year, one of the hardest parts is always the finishing touches. After completely transforming a room with new walls, floors, and ceilings – it is important to add in some small design aspects that bring a space to life and add a sense of homeliness and personality.
Today we are going to take a look at some of the simple ways that you can bring finishing touches to your interior design and create a home that truly brings out your personality as well as your family’s.
The first way to add a fun finishing touch to your home this year is with some stunning plants and flowers. Greenery is always a good way to add some life and energy into a home, and it will instantly lift your design and finish off a room. Choosing a plethora of different flowers and plants to decorate your home with will be a great way to brighten up a space and add some colour into blank corners of your home. Consider adding some life back into your house with greenery this year.
Curtains and blinds
When redecorating your home make sure that you don’t forget about your curtains and blinds! These practical features often get cast aside and forgotten about; however a good set of curtains and blinds are the perfect thing for you to use to finish off your room design.
A gallery wall
One of the fun ways you can vamp up a blank wall in your house is to install a gallery wall with some different size and shape frames and different art pieces. If you always struggle to choose just one piece of art for the walls of your home, this will allow you to choose a few different pieces that you love and have them all displayed on your wall for some fun and brightness in any room. This is the perfect idea for a blank wall space behind your sofa or even at the top of your stairs where there is some space for people to stop and take a look. A gallery wall can even feature a piece picked by each member of your family to really help bring that sense of uniqueness and personality.
One simple way to improve the look of a home in seconds as well as add some ambient light is candles. Candles can be a great design focal point for different parts of your home such as in your bathroom on the window sill or over your mantle piece. Whether you choose a large jar candle with a stunning design or you go for some tea lights across the space – these are all great ways for you to spruce up a room in seconds. Plus, you can choose scented candles and leave them open to share their scent around the house each day.
There are some amazing ways to pimp up your space with ornaments and they will add some personality to your home in no time at all. From a few cute figurines on display, to glass paperweights, and even vases and jars – these will help to finish off your home and fill those blank spaces in your house. One way to really add some personality to your home is to buy a terracotta jar or jug and paint it your own colour or pattern to brighten up a white table or a blank wall.
One of the decorative items a lot of us don’t have anymore in our homes is a clock. A clock used to be a feature in every home, but these days it is less likely to have one hanging on your wall. If you have some blank wall space in your family kitchen, consider investing in a large clock that will bring the space to life and also be a practical feature for your home.
Mirrors are a brilliant way to finish off the design of any room in your house and they have a place in all parts of your house. A mirror can instantly redirect light around your home and this will give the illusion of a more spacious home in no time at all. This is a useful way to create light and space in a small house and it will also help you to fill in a blank wall space that needs some sort of feature. By bringing mirrors into your home of different shapes and designs will also make fun features that can bring vibrancy to a dull room.
One of the simple ways to help bring some colour to your living room or dining room is to display some stunning glass coasters. Glass coasters can come in many different colours and designs and they are a classy feature to bring into your living space. Not only will they brighten up your coffee table or dining area, but they are practical and it will ensure that the kids don’t put their drinks directly on your surfaces.
One of the best things you can do in your family home to add some personality and colour is print out some candid shots of your family and have them on display throughout the house. Photo frames can be either hung on the wall or placed on shelves around your home and they can be a great way to fill blank space in any part of your house.
If you don’t have green fingers and you are afraid that plants will die when in your home – one thing you can do here to still enjoy lush greenery in your house is to install some fake plants. Fake plants are a great way for you to add colour and fun to the home without the worry of looking after them – and all you will likely need to do is give them a dust now and again to make them bright and clean!
If you have redecorated your bedroom or your living room and something just feels missing- consider that you may need to buy some cushions to fill the space. Cushions are a great way to add quick colour and texture to your sofa, chairs, or bed and it will be a fun feature to add to your room. You can choose complimentary or clashing colours to your walls and this can bring the necessary pop of colour you need to your home that will help it stand out.
As well as bringing cushions to your soft furnishings, another really great way to layer up in your living room and your bedroom is by adding blankets. Blankets can instantly help to lift the look of a home and it will take your interior design from drab to thought out in seconds. This is such an easy way for you to bring colour as well as texture to your living space and it can lift your design and give it that final push that it needs.
One feature in your home that doesn’t generally get enough love is your lighting. The lighting in your home is so important and it will help to bring the whole room together after it has been decorated. You can try anything from LED spotlights in your kitchen to a beautiful lamp that will light up the room, both literally and figuratively, and will help to bring some much needed glamour to your room.
