Three Ways to Add Character to Your Home

Couples doing a home makeover

It is time to answer your home’s call for a much-needed makeover! To get you started, here are three ways you can vamp up your abode and add character to it.

Let the beams do the work

Adding character to your home could be as easy as adding beams to the ceiling. Ceiling beams add a rustic touch to a plain-coloured surface. Beams also have the power to create a sense of strong foundations inside the house.

You could choose dark-coloured beams, such as black or walnut brown, opposite a white- or cream-coloured ceiling. You can even go for a white beam on a white ceiling as it also creates a breathable and elegant ambience. Whichever you prefer, you can guarantee that the outcome will be equally stunning.

Takeaway tip: Choose bigger-sized beams for a higher ceiling to create symmetry.

Put a planter in a lonely corner

Sometimes, there are underutilised spaces in our homes that create an empty impression. But the quickest fix to this is by adding planters.

You could choose plants ranging from herbs, flowers, succulents, or a mix of everything. Your planters can be box-shaped, cylindrical or even hanging. You could also add a touch of elegance to your planter space with a little lighting!

Put a painting on the wall

Finally, the easiest way to vamp up and add character to a room is by hanging a painting on a wall. It can be a painting with colours that match the theme of your living space or an accent piece that is meant to stand out. Just make sure it does not clash with the colours and design of your space.

There is no need to spend lots for a home makeover. The three ways above are proof of that. What are you waiting for? Start revamping your home today!
