Home renovations are exciting and fun! Be sure to use them as an opportunity to express your personality in your home. You are an individual after all, and your home should be unique in its design.
Unfortunately, so many people follow the crowd or make “safe” decisions. Following this strategy will only result in a boring aesthetic that’s been seen over and over again. Below are a few unique home renovation ideas.
A Whole New Take on the “Feature wall”
The feature wall is generally known as a wall in a room that is painted in a different colour, or is different in pattern to the other walls in the same room. You can achieve this by painting a single wall in a bright colour or making use of wallpaper.
Take this idea to new heights by playing with texture and function. Why not cover an entire wall in stone? The entire wall in your study could comprise of a giant bookcase. What about a modern white wall with protruding plastic pockets for planted flowers and herbs?
Play with Awkward Spaces
A small or unusually-shaped space is only as awkward as you make it. Make use of these strange spaces by thinking outside the box.
“Reading nooks” are small spaces that are utilised for the purpose of peacefully lounging, relaxing, and reading. Bring more plant life inside by creating a mini indoor garden. If you have children, they will love you for fashioning out a small play or entertainment area for them.
Think about what you love or need, and do something fun and functional with the area!
Are you in need of cupboard and cabinet space? Create a design element out of it! Floating open shelves and cabinets are a quirky addition to your home.
You can custom design this to suit your kitchen, entertainment room, and even your bedroom.
Room Dividers can be boring. Use your need for room dividers to create something special and eye-catching in your home. Consider the different materials that you could use.
Tree branches, such as Bamboo, make for unique room dividers. A floating “wall” of plants looks beautiful too. For something more modern, contemplate coloured glass or patterned sheets of metal cut-outs.
Looking at ideas is a great way of getting inspiration. Don’t allow these ideas to dictate your home renovations. Custom make a look that suits you!
