Decorating a house is quite personal to the people that live it it. Not everyone has the same taste, so the way that you decorate your kitchen is going to be completely different than the way your friends might.

When you plan to live in your forever home, you should fill it with interior decor that showcases your personality. Paint colors, fabric textures and furniture styles should all reflect who you are.

Six Ways To Add A Little Personality To Your Home
A Gallery Wall
The best thing about owning your own house is being able to show off your family through photographs. A gallery wall with photos of the family – both posed and candid – is one of the best ways to introduce artwork to your home. You can choose to use frames from companies like Artware, which can make your family photos really stand out. You can even choose to have frames of varying sizes and shapes that will help to show off your favourite quotes and pictures. Personal artwork like this is a good way of showing off your own artistic talents, and it gives a room in your home a focus.
Every single house should have a standout piece of lighting. Some homes have it in the form of a large chandelier over the dining table, while others have large floor lamps like these. Statement pieces such as these can really show off your creativity and style, and it gives your home a wow factor that others will pick up on as soon as they walk in the door.
Your style may not be overly vintage, but if your taste is a lot of chrome, you need to break up this modernity with a little touch of the past. A vintage accessory or piece of furniture, or even a piece of art in the home could be exactly what you would need. It doesn’t have to match the usual theme of your home, but that is what makes it quirky! Vintage is something every home should have – even if all you choose to use is bedding.

Alternatively, you can opt for alfresco blinds for a touch of modern flair.
Plants & Flowers
If there is one thing that every home interior could use is a bit of nature. You can have the most decorated landscape on the block but if you don’t bring some of the outside in, you’re missing out. You can easily achieve this by adding tall potted plants; smaller, tabletop plants and vases full of flowering blooms. These all add a touch of beauty and make your home stand out in a way that you will love. No green thumb? Try faux plants and flowers. Their quality has come a long way over the years!

You need to consider the size of each room when it comes to accessorizing, and sometimes you can have the most impact on a space by not adding anything at all.

There is a fine line between overcrowding and artful, so you have to be mindful when it comes to the amount of personal touches you add to a room.
When it comes to your home, you need to make the right decisions for your own circumstances. Choosing to overly decorate a house with permanent fixtures that appeal only to you may wind up costing you when it comes time to sell. By using these six tips above you will not only breathe a little you into your home, you can do it without breaking the bank.
