Home Design Ideas That Will Add Character To Your Spaces

Our home is, arguably, the most important place for us in our day to day lives. It is where we prepare most of our meals, sit and eat with the family, host our friends and guests, and where we make memories that will stay with us for a lifetime.

It is not a place that you want to dread coming home to every day and a big part of creating a satisfying living space is by making it your own. There are so many options out there nowadays to add some character to your home and make it truly yours.

So, here are some ideas to get you started on your home design dream!

Rope or String Wall Art

Rope and string art is a great, minimalistic way to decorate any room in the house. As string art and rope art are fairly easy to make, it makes them a versatile choice for wall décor – don’t like the result? It is easy to remove and re-purpose.

The joy with this idea is that you can make anything you want. All you really need is an aesthetically pleasing pinboard and an idea. Using different colours of strings or ropes will enable you to create colourful mosaics too! The only limit is your imagination.

Replace Your Doors

Not all doors in the home serve a functional purpose. Some doors, like a living room door or a hallway door, might just get in the way. Removing these doors and opening your space up will make it feel bigger and provide more of a flow to your home’s layout.

You can get creative and even substitute the door for a portiere, hanging beads, or strip curtains.

Use More Lamps

For some reason, lamps have more often than not been replaced by ceiling or wall mounted lights. There’s nothing wrong with this but in certain rooms, a free-standing lamp can often be a better choice – both aesthetically and functionally.

And you can choose any kind of design, size, and shape for your lamp to help sculpt that ideal style you are going for. Want something small, quaint and modern? Or maybe something larger and ornate?

Do something different with your lighting!

Switch Up Your Radiators

Radiators are often forgotten about when it comes to designing a home, they are often seen as purely functional. But they can serve a stylistic purpose too!

The radiator market has come a long way since your radiators were likely installed. There are designer radiators, vertical radiators, heated handrails, thermostatic radiator valves, and even custom colour column radiators.

Gone are the days of a drab, boring fixture ruining your room’s vibe!

In Conclusion

When looking to add some character to your home’s living spaces, there are quite a few options. This short list features only a few of the many, many ideas out there that you can use to build your ideal home.

Go out there, get creative, and see what you can do with the spaces you have.
