Jul 1, 2008
It is not an activity of buying the new furniture and a matching paint color on the walls. To give you home that amazing personal touch you need to know all the aspects of the home decoration and then go about giving each a special your very own signature style. In essence you want to have your home feel like your own personal space and not cold and impersonal.

Personalization of the decor is the key to everything and that can be achieved by keeping in mind a few things. Let us look a few things that you need to be aware. Let us begin thinking about walls. Wall color is one thing that you need to be aware of but more importantly what goes on the wall is important.

So make sure that you put some personal items like family photos on the walls to give that family touch. You may need to get the frames of the family photos redone to gel with the new decor. Also make sure that you do not over do family photos mix and match it with some other art pictures and portraits.

The corners of a home are very important do not leave them empty have a special corner edge furniture piece made or a glass mantle piece on which you can have a few small mementos or keepsakes displayed. That will give the place a very special touch.

A lot of times the bathrooms are ignored so make sure that bathrooms have your special touch to it. Select your bathroom rugs, bathroom accessories and even towel stands by yourself. They should reflect warmth and should go well with the decor. You can even pick a theme to go with the overall decor of the room.

Kids room is a special area which you should reflect some amount of disorderliness. It is important that the kids room should not look like that it has been transplanted straight out of a magazine.

Kitchen is another area where you might want to go with special touch. Use the top of the refrigerator to keep flowers or plants for that added touch. Pick the kitchen countertop color which should be matching with the overall color of the home decor. Make sure to add some special decoration piece on the top of the kitchen centerpiece to give added warm feeling to the decor.

Hopefully these tips will give you that extra set of ideas for home decoration.
