When you have a home that has some artistic touches on the exterior, like some fancy outdoor garage lights, an unusual pathway or a landscaped garden that’s the talk of the town, you’ll want to make sure that when people enter your home they’ll be just as impressed. So, it’s time to get creative with your interior home decorations too. Finding affordable ways to bring the interior of your home to life with a little personality and creative flair takes some thought and effort. However, when the inside must wow visitors just like the outside already has, then it’s worth it.
Here are a few ways to adding some personality and creativity to your home.
Ornate or Decorative Radiators
The typical white radiator is boring and creates a cold impression even when its red hot. Buying a cast iron, glass or metal radiator from www.warmrooms.co.uk immediately delivers both warmth and personality to the living space. Not only that, but it’s a talking point in its own right too.
Why settle for a staid white radiator that you hope no one will notice or you try to cover up with an armchair or a window curtain when you can have something that truly makes the room? Moreover, energy efficient radiator reflectors will help you keep your energy bills down during the winter months.
Colourful Flower Vases
A flower vase can be made of coloured glass or china pottery, however, patterned glass is a more interesting choice because there are so many patterns to choose between. The colour of each flower vase can be selected to either match the existing décor like the colour of the sofa fabric, or to provide a contrast from it to complement the cut flowers that will be presented inside.
Wall Art Captures the Attention
It doesn’t matter whether you’re the type of person who loves to spend hours walking around the major art galleries and stopping to stare at the most impressive paintings, or you just don’t want to look at blank walls. In either case, buying some expansive wall art transforms anyone who views it from their personal state to another one entirely as they take in the visual representation in the artwork. The art chosen can be reflective of your personal tastes, to set the mood or as a conversation starter. You might want something on your wall that you’ve taken the time to create, a vizuarts diamond painting being a good example of DIY painting kit that’ll look great on your wall. You can also choose wall coverings that create a certain theme or reflect the mood you’d like the room to represent. Take a look at peel and stick wallpaper – Simple Shapes has a great range, as it’s so easy to apply.
Turning the Bookshelf on its Head
When is a bookshelf not just a bookshelf? When it’s given more than one purpose. Most bookshelves are cluttered, disorganised and uninteresting. To make a wide bookshelf more interesting, add some personal mementos and other items that inject a smattering of creativity among the rectangular-shaped books.
Rearrange the books from tallest to smallest to let the eye run along the length of the books lined up side-by-side. Use interesting bookends that have their own unique personality and aren’t necessarily sold as bookends in a store. If you have kids, maybe they’d like to create some bookends for you and the best one wins a prize? Also, don’t fill up the whole space with items. Leave some space on the shelves so it doesn’t all look too busy.
You can be both creative and artistic with your home decorating to bring out interests that you hold, your favourite colours, to reveal your personality traits or just to make the space more visually arresting. Have fun with it and see what you can make out of each area of your home.
