Making your home a little more trendy or fun may take some effort, but it’s not impossible. You don’t have to hire an interior decorator, but a few tips can be helpful. Check out the following tips and choose the ones that feel most natural to you.
One easy thing you can do is place funny items around your house. These could be things like house rules that are more fun than serious. Maybe your sign tells people that in your house “mom” always wins. You can find several funny things to hang around your house that’ll make your home feel fun and trendy. It doesn’t even have to be hanging pieces; you can purchase a funny-looking lamp if you want. Be open to anything, but make sure you don’t get too many of these pieces, or it might start to look crowded.
Artsy but Trendy
If you want to make sure your home looks trendy, then you need to consider some fun pop art wall art. You will have to look through a variety of pieces until you find one that works for you. If you’re going to purchase a large artsy piece, then make sure there’s only one in each room. Pop art is sometimes loud, so too much can feel overwhelming. This is something you don’t want to feel nor do you want your guests to feel. You can even look for some cityscape wall art.
Funky But Functional
Another thing you can do is have fun with some of the functional items in your home. For example, the handles that open your cabinets don’t have to look like handles. You can search online for funny looking handles or Maybe something artsy. You’d be surprised how much better your kitchen or other rooms can look if you just do something unexpected. Make sure you stick to a specific theme when you change things around in your house. If you’re going to be cute, then stay cute, but if you’re going to be surreal, stick to that surreal feel.
It may be a good idea to start being fun or interesting right from the start. As soon as your guests get to your place, they should be greeted with something fun that tells them they’re going into an equally fun home. An easy way to do this is to install a fun mailbox, maybe one that’s in the form of an animal. If you don’t want to do that, then why not have an artistic gate that has something funky on it, like a fantasy creature or something like that. You can put a few figurines in front of your gates, too. Just make sure that whatever you choose looks like it belongs compared to the rest of your home.
Trendy Shower Curtain
Most of the time, shower curtains look a certain way. There are a few patterns every so often or maybe it’s just one color. If you want to stand out, then consider using a shower curtain that no one expects. For example, you can install a shower curtain with an elephant shooting water from its nose. This image makes sense since that’s where you shower, but it’s also very unexpected. You can also look online for customized or artsy shower curtains to see what other types of designs are out there. Maybe you want an artsy shower curtain but something a little more sophisticated, and you can find something like this if you look.
Colors can be fun but only if you use them. Most homeowners stick to darker colors, something that most people expect but if you want to be fun and surprise you’ll want to start using other colors. Instead of boring black pots and pans consider getting an array of these in different colors, vivid colors. Use pinks, blues, yellows, and any other strong color. Make sure that you leave them out to bring color to your kitchen. If you want to take things to the next level you can paint one or a few of your walls with some of these colors.
Well, here are tips to make your home more trendy or fun. Try to let that artist inside of you out, and you’ll see just how fun you can make your home if you stop worrying so much.
