Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, many people around the world have been spending more time at home. Whether it’s working from home or dreaming up house projects while furloughed from work, many have been updating their living spaces in 2020. Adding little touches to home living areas can help to make a place feel more homely and more ‘lived in’. So, read on for a few useful ways to add a personal touch to your living space this year.


How to Add a Personal Touch to Your Living Space This Year


Design Your Home Office to Suit All of Your Needs

The pandemic forced many people to work from home. And while some people have returned to their offices, many are still working from home. Rather than setting up a laptop in the spare room, or on your lap in the living room, creating a dedicated home office space can help separate work life from home life. With so many employees working from home, architecture and design have played an important part in home decor. As people started creating their own personal home office workspaces. Whether you have an entire room to use as an office, or simply a little living space somewhere in your home, you will want to add things to that area to make it ‘yours’.

If your home office has a door, make use of that space. Try putting some floating shelves behind the door for extra storage space. You could also make a fabric stationery holder with pockets to hang behind the door. This will help prevent your desk from being cluttered with these items. Put a plant and a couple of your favorite photos on your desk. A handmade cushion on your office chair. And a great-looking little rug on the floor under your desk and chair. Lack of living space is usually a problem with most home offices, so make sure to use every inch of space available to you, in the best possible way. While at home, there are many ways to personalize your office space to make it really yours, with the freedom and your own space to do so.

Transforming Your Bedroom for Relaxation

Apart from using your favorite colors, what better way to personalize your interiors, than by displaying something you have made yourself? Let the artist in you come out and make some weird and wonderful scatter cushions to place on your bed. Make one-of-a-kind accessories for your bedroom, display your favorite photos in brightly-colored handmade frames, or transform your old bedroom mirror with upcycling.

If you have floors in your bedroom that you simply don’t like or cannot change, then liven it up immediately with a great floor rug. That plain and uncomfortable area will suddenly become a vibrant and inviting room, with a fluffy or creative rug. It’s entirely up to you whether you choose something minimalist, one with bold and unique patterns, or one with unique textures – whatever will make your home feel like yours.

Despite modern technology, curling up with a good book in a personalized living space is a great way to relax. Personalizing a living room’s bookshelf with your top favorite novels and hardbacks can give guests an insight into your character. Adding a few potted plants to the interior of your home will also not only enhance your decor, but the health benefits they offer will add to the quality of life for you and your family. Plants purify and circulate indoor air, reduce stress, and generally make people feel happier. They are available in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so you are almost guaranteed to find a few that will suit your needs perfectly!
