Adding Personality To Your New Home
New things can often feel sterile. Their shiny exterior implies lack of use. No memories have been created yet. Making your new home feel settled and welcoming as soon as possible means adding personality in a variety of ways both during and after the build.
Externally, the colour of the bricks you choose, your style of windows, even your roofline can all add personality and character. Red or even recycled bricks for those that cherish a warm and rustic feel. Blue/grey render for that relaxed coastal feel. Glazing bars on your windows if you’re a fan of french provincial or a skillion style roofline for those who like to stand out from the crowd.
Dream of being a jetsetter on a remote tropical island? Bring the island to you with a pool and tropical gardens. Or indulge your passion for people watching from a front verandah with room for seating.
Inside your home, there is even more scope to add personality. During the build, it could be the style and layout of the cabinets that you choose. A dark and dramatic gourmet kitchen could add flair to your next dinner party. A servery window to the alfresco BBQ area if you enjoy outside entertaining. Are you a collector? Think about wall niches and star lighting to show off treasured objects and artwork.
Paint choice can also make a big difference; be it light and bright, calm and collected or bold and daring. Not sure you want to commit to repainting in the future if your tastes change? Stick with neutrals and add personality through your furnishings instead.
There are so many ways to add personality to your new home. We haven’t even touched on tapware, lighting, mirrors … A custom home is your opportunity to showcase who you are!
