In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy Gale said: “There’s no place like home.” But when you’ve just been handed the keys to your new residential property from your agent, you may find it doesn’t quite feel like home yet. It’s up to you to inject your personality and add finishing touches to the space to make it your own.
Here are four tips to make your brand new property feel just like home:
Hang up your pictures
Nothing personalises a space more than pictures of you, your friends, pets and family members. Hanging up portraits and photos of your loved ones can go a long way to help you put your personal touches in your home and make it feel like your own space.
Think of hanging these up in areas you spend a lot of time in, like the lounge, bedrooms or dining rooms.
Get creative with colours and patterns
Are you an energetic, bubbly person who loves to be loud? Or are you a quiet bookworm who enjoys simply designed rooms? When you’re making your home your own, colours, patterns and textures are three great tools to personalise spaces.
Energetic people may opt for bold colours like red and oranges, while others may enjoy more subdued tones such as creams or pale blues. The same goes for patterns – bold personalities might be attracted to bold designs such as chevron or stripes.
