5 Tips for Creating a Home That Reflects Your Personality
As you shop for a new home, you may be thinking of all kinds of cool ways that you can decorate it. If you want it to be a reflection of you, then you need to personalize it. Here are 5 tips to help you create a home that reflects your personality.
1. Get a Feel for It
Before you shop for new accessories or furniture, take time to imagine yourself living in each of the rooms. Note the things you like about it and what you would like to improve. Also, consider how you’ll be using the space. Will it be a bedroom, office, or exercise room? Questions like these can help you determine what you want and where to begin.
2. Find Your Style
Do you know what your style is? If not, look through a few magazines, do some research online, and think about other places or homes you’ve been in that stood out to you. Then identify what you liked about a particular space and try to incorporate it into your style.
3. Design It for You
Once you know your style, you can start planning your space. Your design should be based on what you like and what’s comfortable for you. Things to consider include:
- Wall Color
- Lighting fixtures
- Style of furniture
- Curtain colors or prints
- Pillows, rugs, and cushions
Resist the urge to come up with things to impress your friends, family, or coworkers. Remember, this will be your home, not a public museum, so it needs to be comfortable and appealing to you.
4. Personalize It
Now it’s time for your personality to shine through! Make a list of your favorite items you want to display. This could include personal photographs, collectibles, and personal heirlooms, to name a few. No matter what you choose, it should represent your taste or style and reflect you. There’s no right or wrong here so plan what you want.
5. Take It Outside
Who says you have to keep it all inside? You can also show your personality on the outside of your home. Take this time to plan your landscaping, outdoor décor, and furniture. Just like the inside, you want the outside of your home to reflect you too.
