How To Add Character to Your House [Easy and Cheap]


One of my goals for this year is to infuse more of my own personality into the décor of my house. I used to adore character decorating while I was in my teens and well into my thirties. I liked to use colorful and unusual designs, and I sometimes added a bohemian touch.

When I was in my late twenties and early thirties, I experimented with taking a more mature approach while yet maintaining a current aesthetic. Over the course of the last five years, I kind of fell into a rut and really fell short in terms of character decorating. I got to the point where I almost entirely stopped doing anything enjoyable with my home.

A lot of individuals give up using their own particular style when they decorate their homes for a variety of different reasons. Because we both have jobs and kids that need our whole attention at all times, we simply do not have the time, energy, or resources to make frequent adjustments to the appearance of our home.

I’m going to provide you with some simple advice that you can use to update your look by adding character to the decorations on your walls.

When guests enter your house, they immediately glance about, including on the ceiling and the floor. Wall art may also have a significant impact on the joy that you experience. The majority of the artwork that is displayed on my walls is something that I have painted myself. However, artistic talent is not required in order to execute this.

Utilizing your own frames is a good place to start when it comes to wall character design. You are free to paint them whatever color you choose, or you may start with a thin layer and gradually distress them.

A WORD OF ADVICE: Sand paper is not required. Take a paper towel and, while the paint is still sticky, wipe off any sections of the painting that would normally be rubbed off anyhow. Check out this page for further advice on dealing with distress.

Get an enlargement made of a picture of your children at the photoshop of your neighborhood pharmacy store. You may also magnify images of nature and hang them in your bathroom to give the impression that you are literally answering nature’s call.

Go to any thrift store (additional suggestions on where to shop may be found here), purchase some cheap art, and then paint an abstract design over it using whatever color you desire. You might paint your favorite flower or animal if you want to challenge yourself. If it doesn’t come out the way you intended, you may as well label it abstract. Exceptional use of the character in the decorating.

You may use any china or dishes that you like as lovely wall decoration. You will have immediate character as well as a sense of the environment when you use maps. Look at this desk I have at my cottage; it has drawers for maps.

One final suggestion for embellishing walls is to always hang artwork in sets of three (or odd numbers). Putting in some of your own unique touches throughout the house will make it seem cozier to the one person who cares the most about how it looks and feels: you.
