Creative Creations - 6 Tips for Personalising Your Property

  • Written by News Feature Team

People’s properties are lining each and every street in your city.

From the skyscrapers in the central business districts to the houses in the suburbs, each place is different and unique, yet somehow in this mess of millions of properties, some stand out as exceptional. How these houses or apartments manage to be so noticeably different is what some people pride themselves on, and with something as simple as visiting you can take the first steps to personalising your home.


Painting is a good first step to consider, as a splash of colour can revolutionise the entire feel of a room. Try getting a new colour that isn’t present in your house at all, and building a palette of complimentary colours based on it. This way, your whole house takes on a new shine while not clashing with your old colours. As well as this, Painting can always be redone later on to counteract any colour changes you might lose interest in, and there is no lasting damage to your walls.


Renovating is slightly more drastic than painting, however, it affords many more opportunities. Adding new rooms to your house, or making originally existing rooms much larger. Renovating your house is more expensive and time consuming, but it does result in a unique house layout and more opportunities for personalisation.

Interior Decorating

The interior of your house is the display surface that every visitor sees and remembers, so the condition of the interior is very important when it comes to designing your house. Hiring an interior decorator or taking on the task yourself is a great way to find out what does and doesn’t work for the space you have, and how to make it look stunning.

Landscape Gardening

Landscape gardening is one of the better ways to make your back or front yard useful as well as beautiful. You can have it modelled to have natural steps carved into a hill, or have a pool put in, or a fountain with fish. These are all unique in many settings, and working with a landscape gardener can help streamline the process and find what you really want for your yard.

Making it “Green”

Adding environmentally friendly processes to your house, such as solar panels and water tanks, can individualise your house and reduce costs at the same time. Solar panels and a house battery combined are a great way to save money on power, and they aren’t nearly as common as they could be, so your house will stand out amongst the others in your street.


All of the above amounts to nothing if you don’t have a unified style for all of it.

Having one kind of design present in your house and another present outside just makes for a strange, disjointed feeling that will be present in most people who view your home. Yes, it will be personalised, but not to the effect that you’re looking for. Make sure your style is unified, and everything else will look much better.

With a personalised house, you will feel more at home and more comfortable than you ever could in a house that is the exact copy of it’s neighbor. Making your house your own is a worthwhile pursuit, and you will benefit from pursuing it.
