If you really want to improve your home’s design this year then you should aim to transform your household into a personal paradise. You can utilise all the contemporary design trends in the world, but it won’t make your home look nicer if it doesn’t have any character. If your household looks the part but doesn’t feel the part then it’ll never be your own personal paradise. Let’s talk about some ways in which you could change that.
Let your personality shine through.
The best way to make your home feel like a personal paradise is to add a dose of your personality to its design. You could put up some beautiful artwork to bring your walls to life. You should’ve already painted them in a neutral colour to create a blank canvas as a backdrop to your home; now it’s time to add some vibrancy and a powerful theme to your household’s interior design. You could even hand-paint some pieces of artwork if you really want to add a personal touch to your home. There’s no better way to create your own personal palace than to sprinkle your home interior with unique elements of your character and your personal preferences. Hanging up symbols of your accomplishments can help too. My walls are surrounded with paintings from South Africa and photos of family.
Aim to make your home minimalistic and spacious.
As boring as it may sound, cleaning up your house can make a huge difference to its design. Even a modern home with a contemporary design won’t feel like paradise if it’s messy and cluttered. You should throw out some of your old junk so as to strip down your home’s layout and make it more minimalistic. Additionally, when creating a decluttered design for your interior, neutrality can help on many levels. Stripping down your home is about more than physically decluttering your home; it’s about cutting down the aesthetic of your home to the bare essentials. There’s such a thing as visually decluttering your home’s design. You might want to consider neutral furnishings to really create a classy and understated feel to your home.

It’s all about letting your home’s design breathe, at the end of the day. Turning your home into a blank canvas makes it feel open and welcoming.
Improve your kitchen.
They say the kitchen is the most important room in the house, no matter how stereotypical that may be to say at this point. It’s true, in many senses. It’s not just a room in which you cook meals for the family – it’s a room that serves as a space for everyone to gather together to eat, talk, and laugh. You should aim to spruce up your kitchen if you really want your home to become a personal paradise. An old kitchen can be completely saved by a makeover.
And it’s the small changes that really make a huge impact. You should start by adding a fresh coat of paint to the room, as is always the best way to start for a DIY amateur. You could make your cabinets and other kitchen furnishings look brand new without having to spend a fortune on a full-scale renovation. Putting up some shelves as additional storage for your kitchen utensils could help to make the kitchen feel more spacious too. Remember, the little details count.
Make some changes to your outdoor area.
We’ve talked a lot about improvements you could make to your home’s indoor design but you shouldn’t neglect the importance of your outdoor area. Your household’s exterior makes the first impression, after all. You should aim to make some changes so as to freshen up your home’s outward appearance. You could start by painting the external woodwork to really bring your house’s exterior to life again. It’s not just about the visual improvement of putting a fresh coat of paint on the outside of your house but the practical improvement of protecting your household’s exterior against the elements. You’ll be avoiding the damaging effects of weathering to the front of your home whilst also ensuring that your home’s design looks fresh and modern once more. It’s a win-win situation.
Of course, your home’s outdoor can be more than a pretty visual cover for your home. You could turn this area into an additional room for your home. The back garden, in particular, should be treated in the same way as any other room in your house. Would you neglect your living room to the point that it becomes messy and ignored? No. Would you let the colours fade in your home’s overall interior design? No. You shouldn’t let these aspects of your garden fade either. Start by cleaning up the place; mow the lawn, trim the overgrown shrubbery, and perhaps plant some new flowers or even a few new trees to add some life to your home’s exterior. Nature is wild, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to guide it in the right direction.
We’re not done yet, however. Your garden can be much more than a pretty slice of natural paradise – it can be your personal paradise. And that’s your goal, after all (assuming you read the title of this article). If you want to make this space feeling like a homely “outdoor room” then you should think about ways to blend creature comforts with your natural surroundings. A patio area is always a good idea. You could have a cosy spot in which to relax with the family on summer evenings. All it takes is some decking, a few cushioned seats, and even a gazebo or patio awning as some form of shelter. The point is that you should make your garden feel like home. That’s an important step towards making your home feel like your own personal paradise. Who wants to look out of their kitchen window and see an overgrown jungle where their garden should be? Don’t neglect this space.
