Choosing the perfect paint or wallpaper, finding just the right flooring solution and the best quality furniture for your space is all important stuff, but once you’ve dealt with the big issues, your home will never truly feel completely finished until you’ve added those little touches that make all the difference to the way your space feels.
From tableware to plants, there are so many little touches that will really finish off your home decor and make your home look amazing, so let’s take a look at a few of them now.
Plants and flowers
Every home should have plants and flowers inside it. Plants bring vibrancy, colour and life into any space where they are placed. They can also help to make your home feel more calming and serene while cleaning the air. Just be sure that you choose a really pretty pot for any plants and flowers you put in your home because they are almost as important as a finishing touch as the plants themselves.
Cups and plates
If you have open shelving units in your kitchen, then you need to pay far more attention to your choice of cups, mugs and plates than you might otherwise because they are going to be on display, So, whether you choose cute and colourful bamboo cups for children, delicate bone china or cute and cool paisley print plates, make sure that your cups and plates match your style, remain chip-free and are presented as artistically as possible in your kitchen.
No home is complete without the right window treatments, which may be different for each person depending on what they want to achieve. If, for example, you want to create a dramatic and sophisticated bedroom space, long, heavy velvet curtains will do the trick, whereas if you’re going for a shabby chic Parisian look, shutters will be your best bet. Just don’t leave them out completely or your home will look unfinished somehow.
Especially if you have wooden or tiled floors, rugs can add a depth and warmth to your space that would otherwise be lacking, which is why they are an essential finishing touch. Persian rugs always look great in more minimally decorated rooms where their intricacies can really shine, but busier rooms with lots of patterns would benefit from a more neutral, pattern-free rug in most cases, but feel free to mix it up.
A Statement piece
No room would be complete without a statement piece – that one piece of furniture or artwork that immediately draws the eye and makes all of your visitors think “wow!” This could be anything from an impressively large cactus if you’re into plants to an unmissable fuschia couch if colour is your thing. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as it makes a statement, and thus, makes your room more interesting as a result.
It’s the little touches that really make a home special, so don’t neglect them next time you’re revamping your home decor.
