By personalising your new home build you can make your house into a home. With your personal touches, your house can seem warmer and more inviting. We’ve got some tips so you can customise your home with your own style.

Build7 Wellington offers an interior design service that helps to bring your ideas to life when it comes to your new home build.

Personal pictures and artworks

There’s nothing quite as personal as displaying photographs of family and friends and places you’ve traveled. The picture frames you choose can also be a good way to decorate. Photos can be more than just wall decorations and don’t need to be hung as single prints either. Custom printing allows you to have anything from canvas to printed magnets and fabrics.

Adding in artwork that appeals to you, or even pieces that your family have created makes for great decoration.

Mix it up

Antiques and older furniture can be refurbished and re-upholstered to be used in your new home. Pairing older items with the new can make for dramatic statements in your home.

Enjoying pieces of furniture, works of art or decorative items that have been handed down in the family and carry sentimental value can add emotional warmth into your home too.

Older, quality furniture can be spruced up and re-purposed for use in your living spaces.  Sand and paint lovely old kits, re-varnish an antique chest of drawers, add some new knobs that match your décor.

Use colour in your new home build

Making use of colour to show your individual taste is a great way to personalise your home. Adding in a feature wall in a bright colour is a quick and easy way. You can also look at cushions and throws to liven up living areas. Choose your favourite colours and designs to express your taste. If you want to add some greenery, plants are easy to find.

Decorate with the things you love and enjoy items that are personal to you and your family. For new items, choose something you will cherish and enjoy. Your individual style and flair along with the love and care you put into your house is what makes it a home.
