When it comes time to renovate, many of us don’t feel like getting creative with our endeavors, but there’s a reason they call it home improvement, rather than home maintenance. You want your home to be the ideal expression of your personality, as well as your family’s, so, as they say, “Go big, or go home.” When you’re looking to make a change in your home, stop to consider your options and make a truly special decision. Here are a few ideas on how to make your home stand out from the crowd.
Considering working toward a house with a theme. Nothing will pique the neighbors’ interest like living next to a mystical wizard tower. Or, if that’s not your style, why not make your house resemble the gingerbread house from Hansel and Gretel? A project like this can take awhile, but it’s worth it in the end. Your house can be a truly special one, and once a theme is picked, the interior kind of takes care of itself. Everything just falls into place around the theme.
Another, much simpler idea to set your home apart from the rest is adding patterns to the woodwork. Etching intricate designs into things like doors, doorways, window frames, and much more can give your house an elegant and refined feeling throughout. Likewise, you can even cut pieces like railing and fences into interesting shapes, or add a trim the base of your walls, exterior, interior, or both.
Lastly, making a bold color choice can really transform a house. These days, most houses are white. Simply white. The same color choice time and time again gets stale, quick, and so you can improve your home simply by choosing to go against the grain. You can go with a pastel color, like canary yellow, or something more vibrant, like a deep red. Really, it’s your call, and the sky’s the limit.
With these tips in mind, it’s time to get out there, pick up some supplies from Home Depot, and get to work.
