Customize Accessories for a Personal Touch
Accessories are often said to make the world of difference in a room. They cost very little money yet they can often make the biggest difference. Every room should have a few accessories to make it look cozy and inviting. However, if you really want to make your home unique then why not consider personalizing your accessories?
Customizing Shop Bought Accessories
When you buy accessories from a shop, they often look great just how they are. However, they could look even better if you add your own personal touches.
Lamps are easy to customize. You can either create your own lampshade by wrapping fabric around the shade, or you can add a small ribbon to the bottom of the lamp. It is a simple and small change that can make a big difference. If you buy the Trend Lighting Arcadia Lamp for example, a small bow made from a wired French ribbon would look great tied around the base.
You can also customize waste baskets to make them look pretty. Try gluing braid onto the waste baskets. This will make them look really homely and they can be stored in the bedroom, bathroom or living room.
Another quick and simple tip would be to hang a ribbon or tassel from the handle of a china cabinet.
It is simple changes like the ones mentioned above that will make a big difference. You just need a little imagination and spare fabric. The best place to look for fabric would be at a local craft store. They often run end of range sales. This is where you will find the cheapest fabric available.
Overall it does make sense to customize some of the accessories in your own. It will make them unique to you and it can also be satisfying knowing that you have created something unique.
