How To Make Your Home Unique

No matter whether you have lived in your home for a long time or you’ve just moved in, if you have a space to call your own you want it to be unique and reflect your personality. The problem is, it’s so easy to conform to the various trends and design ideas that are always shown on TV and in magazines—and of course, in stores when we go to shop for our homes—that we might end up with a house that looks just like everyone else’s even if we intended for this not to happen at all. 

If you think you need to make a change and create a home that is much more unique and more in keeping with your personality, here are some ways you can do it. 

Show Personal Items 

Everyone has plenty of items that are both personal and meaningful to them. It might be that the item was bought on a special vacation, or that it was a gift from a loved one. It might have been made by a child, or you might even have made it yourself. It could have been passed down through the generations, or perhaps you simply love it and want in your home. 

Whatever the reason for having it, if you love it you should display it. Of course, you don’t want to clutter up your home either if you want to be comfortable, so if you have a lot of precious items you might have to choose which ones to display and which to store and alternate them if you want to. Showing these items will be unique, and will make you feel much more at home

Also, use brass rods to add detailing to cabinets as a unique touch.

Buy One-Offs 

One of the only ways to truly be unique when creating your home is to buy one-off items. This might be furniture or pieces of art that, once you have them, no one else is going to. If you want to do this, don’t go to the main online stores because the items there tend to be mass produced. Instead, go to the stores that encourage people to sell their own creations, such as Etsy or Redbubble, and you’ll find some beautiful items for your home that no one else is going to have. 

Keep in mind though, that due to the fact that they are unique, these items might be more expensive than those you can buy elsewhere. If that is the case, you should use Redbubble coupons to bring the cost down, and that way you can still keep your home unique. 

Use Your Ceiling 

When you go into the majority of houses the ceilings aren’t particularly impressive. Most of the time they will be painted white and will have a single light fitting hanging. If the ceiling is low the lights might be wall lights instead, but otherwise they will all look very much the same. 

If you want to be unique, why not use your ceiling? You can paint it an interesting color, paint a mural, or even use patterned wallpaper if you prefer. Or you can make your light fitting a focal point, particularly if you can find one that is a special piece of art as well.
