8 Easy Ways To Personalize Your New Home

When you first move into your new home it is common to want to put your personal stamp on it to make it uniquely yours. Sure your furniture and belongings inherently do that to a certain point, but not everyone has the vision or interior design gene to know where to start. Here are 8 great and easy ways to customize your new place.

Paint Front Door

For a much smaller commitment than repainting the whole house, consider painting the front door with a color of your choice. This will freshen up the look but also help put your own taste into the front facade.

Paint an Accent Wall 

If you cannot come up with an idea for changing the color of all of a room, try painting an accent wall. A complementary color will add some life into a room and be a nice backdrop for some of your own artwork. It is a small project while you try mapping out a color scheme.

Bathroom Fixtures

Not everyone has the money ready to redo a bathroom especially right after buying the home. For a fraction of the price of a remodel you could start with elevating the look with some new fixtures. Something of your taste for the vanity and perhaps a nice matching rain head for the shower.

Customize Entry Ways

You know yourself and the household best for what suits, but customize entryways with what makes your lifestyle easier. Perhaps it’s a bench by the door with shoe storage and hooks for keys.

Light Fixtures

Replacing light fixtures is a great idea for low cost with high impact. Maybe it is the one for the dining area, added pendants over bar counter seating or even a prominent room’s ceiling fan light combo. Select something that is more conducive to your taste and lifestyle.

Window Treatments

The cost of window treatments can really vary. On the lower end you could simply upgrade your blinds and curtains with colors and textures that you like. On the higher end you could invest in plantation shutters for a really refined and timeless look.


Fill your empty corners and spaces with some life, literally. You can never go wrong with real, living house plants. They come in all shapes and sizes so they are very accommodating for any location that needs some freshening. 

Outdoor Fun

Finally, enjoy the outdoors as you wish. Whether it’s relaxing on a hammock, with friends around a firepit and picnic table or playing games like horseshoe there are many affordable and easy options to set the stage for how you want to make the yard just the way you want it.
