When your house is surrounded by some other houses, very often they are the exact replica of yours from the outside. But you can make your house stand out by adding a few special touches to your home decor and add some personality to your house. Following these ten steps will help turning your house into a cosy and unique home.

1: Check your Wardrobe

If you’re not sure about the decor style you want, just have a look at your closet. In fact, your wardrobe reveals who you are, so you can have a look at the kind of clothes you like and this will inspire you. If you like wearing bright colours, then you can get rid of those dull wall papers and get more creative and daring.

2: Decorate the Outside Walls

When all the houses in your street look the same, you can make yours stand out by painting the walls differently. For instance you can have one of your favourite family pictures turned into a giant wallpaper to personalise the outside of your house.

3: Dress up the Driveway

You can also personalise your drive way by putting some items that give the tone of your interior design.

4: Use Interesting Window Trim

Having nice curtains is not enough to make your house stand out; make sure you also add some interesting window trim. Generally people use flowers to add more life to their windows, but you can get as creative as you like and get window trim that reflects your personality.
