Hello Decor Friends,
One question I get asked all the time, is “how to make my builder home look custom”. Making your home look custom doesn't have to break the bank. There are a number of inexpensive ways to give your home a personalized touch without spending a fortune. Whether you're looking to add a touch of personality to your living space or make your home more inviting to guests, these three tips will help you achieve a custom look without spending a lot of money.
1. Mix and match textures and patterns
One of the easiest ways to make your home look custom is to mix and match textures and patterns. This can be as simple as adding a few throw pillows in different colors or patterns to your sofa, or layering a patterned rug over a textured one.
When it comes to mixing and matching, the key is to find a balance. Too many patterns can be overwhelming, while too few can be boring. Try to stick to a color story, and use patterns and textures in different ways throughout your home to create a cohesive look.
2. Add custom accents
Another inexpensive way to make your home look custom is to add unique accents. These can be anything from personalized photo frames, unique lighting fixtures, artwork collected on your travels, unique materials such as driftwood. One of a kind accents can help you showcase your personality, your families history and other things that help to tell the story of you.
For example, you could add a personalized doormat to your front porch, or hang a custom-made piece of artwork on your living room wall. These accents don't have to be expensive, and can often be found at local thrift stores or flea markets.
3. Rearrange your furniture
Finally, one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to make your home look custom is to rearrange your furniture. This can be as simple as swapping out a few pieces of furniture, or moving things around to create a more open and inviting space.
Try to think outside the box when it comes to furniture arrangement. Instead of lining your furniture up against the walls, try grouping it together in conversation areas. This will create a more intimate and cozy feel in your living space.
Why not give these ideas a try and see how easy it can be to transform your home into a custom space that you'll love to spend time in.
