From making the bedroom a private sanctuary or turning the living space into a comfortable area to socialise. Often the hardest part when it comes to adding that personal touch is knowing where to begin. This is where a professional interior designer can help. We take a look at some of the top tips for adding a personal touch to your home that will make it a haven that is specific to you, and functional for what it is meant to do! Choose personal touches carefully When it comes to adding a personal touch to your home, one of the first things you want to do is add elements that mean something to you. But you want to do this carefully. The last thing you want is to have too many items that it can make the space feel too full and generate clutter with too many components to draw the eye. Items such as photo frames, ornaments you’ve collected, or souvenirs from your travels and other momentous occasions hold personal sentiment to you – just make sure you place them strategically so each item has a place – this will help give the object full impact to stand out among all the other decor! Play around with the lighting Lighting is another super important aspect when it comes to adding a personal touch to your home. Lighting can instantly transform a space so it isn’t something you want to rush with. If you are looking into a room such as a bedroom, you most likely want it to have low-level lighting that is relaxing and soothing after a long day. If you are looking to add lights to a room that you will entertain or concentrate in, you are going to want more bold statement lighting. Make room for plants and artwork Plants and artwork are other elements that can make your house feel like a home. Add large pieces of bold artwork to make a statement – it can be a fantastic way to imbue a room with colour and personality. Plants are a great way to add life and colour at the same time, as well as adding some texture and tone to the space. Whether you opt for large or small plants, those that are easy to take care of or require more maintenance – the choice is yours! Just make sure they work together and don’t overwhelm the space. These are all simple ways that you can add a personal touch to your home and really make the space suited for its purpose. Often it just takes a couple of small changes to really see a difference and you will wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!
