If you love your home and love doing all you can to stamp your personality on it and make it unique, then this guest post has some more ideas for ways to add individuality, colour and texture into the interior and exterior of your home to spice things up a bit.
Go bold with exterior paint
Painting the outside of your home can be one of the boldest moves you can make. While popular exterior house paint colours tend to range from white to beige to grey, it is always fun to break from the mould!
If you’re feeling bold, why not try green, blue, or yellow on your home’s exterior? Another great option is to add a rich or deep trim. Popular colours for achieving this look are navy blues, brick reds, or forest greens. Adding colour to your home’s exterior does not have to be loud or ostentatious though, lightened hues, pastel colours and accents all help to bring brightness and reflect individuality.
Create accent walls
Keeping on the paint theme, adding a bold colour on wall in a room can provide oomph and eccentricity to any room while still keeping it classy. Maybe a juicy watermelon hue, that evokes summer, makes you happiest? That bright colour would look stunning on a single wall of a room with the rest of the walls in contrasting colours.
Alternatively, add a bold, colourful wallpaper design to one wall and see what a difference it can make. Accent walls allow your playful side to roam free, without overpowering the decor in the entire room.
Make a statement with doors
Changing the doors in your home, including the internal doors, front door and back door, can also add an extra bit of pizazz to the look of your home, especially when you’re swapping plain white or bog standard mdf doors for craftsman made doors. This is not just about colour, but also texture too. When you change a door, there are numerous options to choose from, including design of the door and what it’s made of.
Solid wooden doors help to add a sense of character to a home and each wood has its own strengths and benefits. Maple is a hard wood, but tends to have a lighter colour that some find a bit drab for an entryway, whilst walnut is darker, but can be a tad too dark for some tastes. Oak doors are a good alternative as they sit somewhere in between in terms of colour and are beautiful, bold, and strong.
