So many homes in 2022 are basically identikits. They all have the same shade of gray paint, the same Ikea furniture, and the same scented candles from Bath & Body Works. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but if you’re the kind of person who wants your home to be a bit more individual; a bit more unique to you, then it’s good to know that there are lots of things you can do to make your home stand out from the crowd, as you will see below.
Create your own gallery
Okay, so picture galleries are a popular trend right now, but you can definitely still make them unique because your photographs and artworks are unique to you. So, by choosing your most meaningful photographs and artworks, you can create a wall space that screams you and just you. You can even make it more interesting by arranging your photo frames in an unusual shape like a snail or a tree, to make it even more different from the norm.
Make your own soft furnishings
One of the best ways to make your home more unique is to stop buying things like curtains and cushion covers from the store and make your own instead. Whatever you’re into, you can find a fabric that will suit your taste from this fabulous Hannukah fabric to this cute Hello Kitty fabric, and with just a few basic sewing skills, you can turn them into whatever soft furnishings you need to make your home complete.
Mix your own paint
These days, you aren’t limited to the paint shades on the shelf. Most DIY places have a machine that will enable you to mix your own unique shade of paint, so that is a really easy way to ensure that your home does not end up as an identikit.
And print your own wallpaper
It is also possible to print your own wallpaper which you have designed yourself or had an artist friend design perhaps. If you love wallpaper, but you hate that you see the same designs in so many homes, this is a great way to ensure your home stand so in the best possible way.
Go for unique hardware
Why have a basic draw pull when you can have a bronze elephant or a silver cat drawer pull instead? If you don’t want your furniture and fittings to look like everyone else’s switch out the hardware like knobs, pulls, and taps for more unique designs that you will not see in every other home. This is a very affordable way of doing so.
Decoupage is the process of applying glue and paper to objects such as drawers and lamps to give them a completely new look. It’s a great way to transform a plain chest of drawers, for example, into a beautifully patterned, one-of-a-kind piece. So, why not explore the art of decoupage in your home?
If you want your home to be as individual as you, then why not try one of the ideas above? Your home will definitely be more unique if you do!
