Display Things That Mean Something to You: The best way for you to make your space truly original would be for you to personalise it according to experiences you have had. This could include your favourite pictures or even your stamp collection. You can even choose to frame your sports jerseys if you want. If you want to truly bring out the personality of your home, then it may be wise for you to frame the ticket stubs from your favourite movies.

This is especially useful if you are able to keep them organised so that they look deliberately placed. The great thing about doing this is that it will make your home look much more polished. If your collection can hang, such as if it is a set of vintage teacups then buy some hooks.

Hang Some Art: Another thing that you can do is hang some images or some art right below your windows. This can make it much easier for you to customise your space and you may even find that it helps to keep in line with the general personality of your home. This way of hanging art is especially useful if you want to put something on your upstairs hallway because the natural light coming in will brighten the space, and the art will break the rules of interior design, helping you to have a much more pleasantly presented home overall.

Change Your Hardware: Using the hardware that came with your kitchen might seem cheap and easy, but there are ways for you to really push things to that next level if you want. Generic hardware can make your home feel much more dated, and this won’t give you the vintage look you’re hoping it will. You need to buy unique handles if possible, as this is a fantastic way for you to bring your home together and you may even find that it helps to add that personal touch too. You can refinish any of your old hardware items if you want or you can choose to opt for wooden or rope handles for the kitchen cabinets. Things like this are ideal if you want to truly make your home stand out.

Use Your Ceiling: At the end of the day, your ceiling has so much potential when it comes to the general style of your home. People don’t usually consider it when they are creating their room though. It’s essentially a blank wall and if you want to make your home cohesive then you should be thinking about it. There are many ways that you can try and make your ceiling the focal point of the room. You can use wooden beams, or you can even use chandeliers if you want. A medallion is also another option and they tend to be quite inexpensive too. Stencils can be used to add a bit of style to your home and you would be surprised at how much this could help you to bring everything together.

Add Some Pictures: It’s also helpful for you to put some pictures up in the bathroom. It may sound very strange, hanging pictures in a room such as this but at the end of the day, it’s ideal if you want to add that personal touch. It’s usually the first place that you will visit in the morning so it’s a very good idea for you to use it to your advantage. Displaying personal photos in your bathroom is also a good way for you to add personality to your home. Be sure to frame them in very high-quality frames as this will help to protect them from issues such as humidity.

Hang Plants: Plants really do add so much to a room. They are ideal if you want to add colour, but at the end of the day, they also add life. It’s standard for you to put planters on the floor, but another way for you to add life would be for you to add hanging plants. This will add way more life to your room and it won’t take up a lot of table space either. Consider having some cube units on your wall and then put some draping plants in there.
