Your home is supposed to be your oasis, a place to relax and enjoy yourself. It should not only be visually appealing but also have features that bring a smile to your face and serve as conversation starters. You should love what you see when you look around and walk from room to room. Let’s talk about some of the fun touches you can add to your home that will really help showcase your specific personality and style.
Revamp your bathroom
It’s no secret that people will spend a lot of time in the bathroom over the course of their lifetime whether they’re shaving, applying makeup, showering, and then some, so you might as well make it a beautiful and stylish place. For example, you can have bathroom glass doors or a glass-front tub, get glass sinks, and use unique tiles. If you’re going to have to spend time there, make it a space in which you actually want to be.
Who says slides need to be strictly for the playground? You can have your own slide indoors or out (or a combination of the two). You might want to consider one that goes from inside your home to the lawn or out to your pool, one that goes from one floor to the next right beside the main staircase, from a child’s room to the first floor, from the deck to the pool, or from a treehouse down to the ground. There are many possibilities to consider, but each one can allow for quite a bit of fun for residents and guests alike.
Do a wall mural
Wall murals are anything but boring. They essentially turn one or more walls in your home into an extra large piece of art, and they can be as bold and vibrant or as soft and subtle as you desire. Don’t worry if you don’t have painting skills and don’t want to hire someone to do the job for you. There’s wallpaper, wall stickers, and other options that can make the process a little easier and less time consuming than painting by hand.
Incorporate stained glass
Stained glass can be an elegant and fascinating way to incorporate exquisite art into your home. It’s also a great way to add a pop of color. Windows are popular but there are also plenty of other options. You can buy the items already completed, have them custom made, or even make a version of them yourself depending on which option you’re going with. Should you go with windows, they can look just as stunning from the outside as they do from the inside.
Take new photos
One of the best parts of taking and hanging personal photographs in your home is that there’s always a story behind each one. You can take a picture of anything that captures your interest, get it enlarged to a specific size, pair it with a complementary frame, and you have an instant conversation starter. In addition to hanging only one photo, you can also display pictures in groups. It’s budget-friendly customizable art and wonderful memories all rolled into one.
When it comes to adding fun touches to your home, you can go as big or small with the changes as you’re comfortable with and make adjustments as you desire. The ultimate goal is to have it be a home that makes you breathe a sigh of relief when you walk through the door and where you can forget about all of your worries. When you find the right pieces to put into your home, you’ll just feel it and know they were meant to be there.
