If you’re like me, browsing through Pinterest for hours is an every day occurrence. Drooling over wood-beamed ceilings, exposed brick, beautiful fireplaces, herringbone floors…Who even has money for that? What about us people who don’t live in Pinterest dream homes? I’ve rounded up 7 ways to add character to your own home without spending your whole paycheck.
I’ve mentioned this in a previous post, wallpaper is a must have!!! It has always been known to make a statement and now a days you can find plenty of affordable, removable options. So whether you are an owner or renter, look to wallpaper to add the perfect touch of character to just about any basic room in your house.
- Reclaimed wood
Adding rustic elements is a quick way to make an impact of your home with both colour and texture. Whether you choose to accent an entire wall or add some open shelving, reclaimed wood adds warmth and charm into a space without breaking the bank.
Nothing adds character quicker and easier than a rug. Whether your home has carpet or hardwood, layering a rug on top will immediately add colour and texture.
- Bold paint
Who doesn’t love a plain white wall, but don’t be so quick to judge the power of a punchy paint colour. Bold walls immediately lend a distinctive personality to any space, also one of the least expensive and quickest ways to transform a room.
- Overhead lighting
Want to make an impact? Switch your old ugly standard overhead lighting. I know overhead lighting isn’t always the cheapest, but I can promise you, you can find something to make the space feel more custom and special under $150.
