Make A New House A Home
If you’re moving into a new property, or have felt disconnected for a while with your humble abode, it’s time to take action to turn your house into a home.  Creating a comfortable dwelling does not have to cost the earth; it’s all about personalising the home and customising areas of the house.

But how exactly do you transform a blank residence into a comfy place where you feel right at home? First of all find inspiration – reading this blog is a great place to start, but then you can discover a wealth of ideas on the internet and in quirky, creative magazines.  The main factor you need to realise is it’s not about the amount of money you invest in decorating a home! People could spend millions on the most expensive furnishings and still not feel an emotional connection with their home.  It’s the little finishing touches, to personalise the dwelling, that will make you feel secure and happy in your home.

Here are a few customisation ideas to get you started on each room – some won’t even cost you a penny.


Rearrange the furniture

You’ll be surprised at how different a room can feel just by switching up the furniture.  Simply moving a table, couch or bed can make a room feel fresher and most importantly, more homely.  Get experimenting – you won’t know unless you try.


Implement Favourite Places, Quotes, Photos

If you’re someone that needs a constant reminder of your favourite holiday, or need an encouraging quote to make it to work on a Monday, why not put it on your wall? Making a feature wall in a lounge, kitchen or bedroom can really make the space come alive, and by personalising it with a favourite quote or picture really makes it your own.  You can pick up professional vinyl wall stickers of popular quotes for a reasonable price, and they take just minutes to transfer onto a wall.  If you have a favourite photograph of family or a landscape, enlarge it and place it on the wall in the form of a sticker or canvas – it will always make you smile.


Find New Uses for Old Things

Your home is a place to express your personality and feelings, so don’t be afraid to do what you want.  Instead of following interior design trends and throwing out old decorative items you love, keep them and devise a new use for them.  For example, if you have a traditional fireplace with no fire, and you have a library full of books, why not fill the fireplace with your precious paperbacks? If you have an odd mismatched chair from the garden you don’t want to part with, place it in the spare bedroom as a feature.  Use an old stool as a bedside table or a surface to position a lamp – be creative!  Your personal belongings resonate with you, so throwing old items away and replacing everything is not always the best way to renovate a home.
