As the old saying goes, a man's (or woman's) home is his castle. And it's a good idea to treat it that way. Spending some time and money on decorating your home can transform a bland, functional living space into a beautiful, peaceful oasis. By putting your own individual aesthetic spin on your home, it will begin to feel like a haven where you can relax and wind down.
Here are five unique ideas that will make your home feel like your own.
1. Choose a bold one-wall wallpaper
Choose a bold, unapologetic wallpaper and use it on one, carefully selected wall in the house. This look works best when it's done on a room's central wall, like the wall behind your bed or the wall behind your living room mantlepiece. This will be the wall people see first and will become a huge feature of the room.
Be careful when selecting the wallpaper you want to use. It's going to be a central part of the space, so make sure it matches with the room's aesthetic. Our favorite feature wall look is either a soft, modern pattern or a landscape image. But, choose whatever wallpaper suits your style, get wallpapering!
2. An indoor swing set
An indoor swinging chair will transform your living room or bedroom into a whimsical paradise. These swings look great, and give height to the space, plus, they provide you with a comfy, relaxing new reading spot.
Be creative when thinking about your swing. You could opt for a simple one-seater, or you could create a hanging sofa or day bed. This design is sure to be the envy of all your friends!
3. Stained glass windows
Windows are a hugely underrated part of interior design. You may have given some thought to the type of windows you have installed, but have you ever considered that the glass in your windows could be decorative? Enter the stained glass window.
Stained glass windows are a big statement, but they will make your room feel luxurious, unique and colorful. These windows will make your home feel like a classic Edwardian house. And if you pair them with a sleek, contemporary interior, the combination will look stunning.
4. An indoor tree
This unusual idea will make you room feel like a magical woodland. If you like a bit of whimsy and you have a large, empty room, look into planting an indoor tree - and we're not talking about a potted plant. With a full-grown tree in the middle of your room, the space will feel fresher, and look cooler.
5. Mismatched flooring
This funky design idea is eye-catching and really unusual. Try finding two mismatched types of flooring for your bathroom or kitchen and put them together. Go for either a patterned look, or put one on one side of the room and one on the other.
With one of these five ideas, your interior will immediately feel unique and fresh. Spruce up your home by including a whimsical swing, or eye-catching stained glass. Remember, your home should reflect you, so never second-guess your get instincts.
