Things to add uniqueness to your home

When you have people at your home, you want to show off all of the work that you have done to your home. You want your home to stand out to your peers and to look different from the rest of the homes that they have seen to receive the praise that you deserve. One way to make your home stand out more is to add unique home decor items that are sure to shine over the rest. You can find a list of five unique home decor items in the list that is below so that you can show off your home to others.

1. Bring in Nature

If you are not afraid to experiment with nature, bring some into your home that you can show off and make your home feel more natural. There are some homes that have incorporated recycled materials into the architectural build of their home and there are many decorative pieces that use recycled materials. Being conscious of the environment and having fun decorating your home is always a great mix. 


Bring in plants to every room of your home as they can help to clean the air and can help you breathe a little easier. There have been studies that have shown that some plants even help you to concentrate better, which is a great benefit if you work from home. You can also bring in pieces of wood to use as curtain rods and acorns to use as vase fillers if you want to stick with the nature theme.

2. Create an Accent Wall

Another great home decor option that can be unique and personalized to you is to add an accent wall. You can paint this wall one color that is different from the rest of your home or can even make it out of wood. There are even wallpapers that are bright and have fun patterns that you can use in your home. You can even keep the wall the same color as the rest of those in the room, but just add a collage of art and photos. 


You can also personalize it to your liking by bringing out your creative artistry, and paint a simple design that ties in well with the decor in the room. The accent wall could be as simple as painting an arch and placing shelves on it to give the illusion of a bookshelf. You can also go as far as painting a mural-like piece to bring more color into the room. 

3. Decorate with Mirrors

Decorating with mirrors is a great way that you can make a small room in your home feel much larger. You can even purchase mirrors that are made of different materials on the frame that will go well with the theme of your home. Use a wooden framed mirror, for instance, if you have a rustic design; whereas a mirror that is framed in metal will give you a more modern or industrial look. You can hang up a beautiful mirror and have that be the focal point in the room or place a long mirror against the wall that will give you a nice reflection from head to toe. 


For those who live in a smaller space, adding mirrors into a small room will give the illusion of added space into your room. Mirrors can also help you to lighten up a room as well if there are not many windows or not a good light source.

4. Modernize the Fireplace

If you have a fireplace in your home, do not be afraid to go beyond the traditional style. Try your hand at making it appear to be more modern, especially if it is the focal point of a certain room in your home. You can paint the bricks a certain color, can add shelving above the mantle to show off more of your belongings, or can even put greenery along with it. Consider even putting in a new fireplace grate that can add a unique touch to your home as these are available in a variety of different designs.

5. Add a Unique Clock

Though the world is now more digital, adding a unique clock can really make a room stand out. Put in any variety of hand-carved clocks, whether you want to choose a Bavarian cuckoo clock or something else. Some of these clocks are even able to be personalized to you and your family so that you have one that is not like any other in the world. If you make this a focal point of your room, it is really able to stand out as well so your guests are sure to see it. If the style of your home is a bit more simple you can look for some minimalistic clocks for your home that are also unique. 

Final Thoughts

If you love having guests at your home, you probably love to decorate your home. Start decorating today by adding a unique touch to any room of your home that is sure to appeal to anyone who walks through your doors. You can add new accent pieces such as mirrors and clocks, or even create an accent wall in a certain room. You can also change up the fireplace in your home and even incorporate nature in unique ways that will really impress others who will want to know how you decorated. Your home is where you can be your truest self and making sure you feel confident in the design and comfortability of it is very important in how you go about your day-to-day routine. So if you are looking to add a bit more uniqueness, go about it having fun and don’t overthink your design choices.
