Adding a Personal Touch To Your Home

home, house, personal touch

Does your house feel like your home? When you walk inside your house, does it instantly feel like it belongs to you? Would your friends be able to tell it was your property if they had never been in it before? It is so important that our homes feel like they are our own. This is what makes a property comforting and relaxing, which every home should be. It’s the personal touches that will make you smile and feel at ease. You don’t want your property to feel like a show home or like you have invaded someone else’s space. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the different ways you can add a personal touch to your property.

Add Some Personal Photos 

Add personality by adding personal photos around your home. Don’t forget to choose a picture frame with care because this will be an important decorative element in the room in question. I am guilty of having thousands of excellent pictures in digital form and very few on my walls!

Keep it Personal

Adding photographs to your lovely home is not the only way that you can elude to a specific time or place that you all enjoyed as a family. You can go for the more creative approach, adding wall art and ornaments that remind you of somewhere or a time you shared. For example, you could add a starfish ornament if you often go to the beach or you could choose something that is native to a specific country.

Add the Personal Touch to Your Entrance

Another way to add a personal touch to your home is to focus on the entrance to it. This is often one of the most overlooked areas of any property. We often use the entrance as a place to dump our shoes, coat, and shopping bags. It is not uncommon for it to become a bit of a cluttered and boring mess because of this. We assume it doesn’t really matter. After all, it is not like we are going to spend much time here, right? Well, this is the first thing that anyone notices when they enter your house – both you and your guests. It sets the tone for the entire property, and so it is important that the entry gets the attention it deserves. Look for ways to add some more colour and character to this part of your home.

Add Flowers and Plants

There are so many benefits that are associated with adding your favourite flowers to your home. The first is that they will add a little touch of your personality, brightening up the place and putting a smile on your face whenever you walk past them. Not only this but there have been studies that have shown nature can boost cognitive thinking and lower stress, as well as boosting our overall wellbeing. The good news does not end there either! Houseplants can make your property much more comfortable because they give the airflow a boost too. I tend to kill plants and plastic ones don’t offer the same benefit. I must try harder!

Remember the Little Things

Last but not least, it is the little things that really matter when it comes to adding a personal touch to your home. The silly, smaller, and characteristic elements of your property are the ones that can tell your personal story. These are the items that will make your home the safe an perfect haven you deserve. From your personalised cushions to your silly mugs, these make a bigger difference than we often give them credit for.


As you can see, there are many different ways you can add a personal touch to your home, and the suggestions that have been mentioned do not cost a lot of money nor do they require a lot of effort on your behalf. A few small changes can most definitely go a very long way, especially when it comes to turning a house into a home and giving it your own unique feel. So, why not give some of the above suggestions a try and see what difference it makes? How do you creative a homely feel to your house?
