4 Design Hacks to Make a New Build Property Feel Homely!
There is no doubt that buying a new build property is an exciting time – being the first to turn the keys is just brilliant but how do you go about making it come alive and start to feel like home rather a blank, boxy, white, empty space?
Kudos Villas estate agents in Cabo Roig offer personalised and bespoke furniture packages for our clients but most home owners still want to put their own stamp and style on their new home. Where do you start? Check our ideas and suggestions to help turn your new build into a home that stands out from the others and reflects your personality.
1. Furnish with colour and texture
If you fell in love with the show house now is the chance to create your own! A brand new property does not require painting, that is the bonus and probably one the reasons you chose a new property but you will likely want to create a scheme throughout by introducing colour and texture in a different way. A colourful sofa, cushions, rugs, bedspreads, pictures and throws are all ways to make a difference – the transformation can be truly remarkable.
2. Add ceiling detail
If your new property has not been finished with interior lighting then the ceiling is almost guaranteed to be plain white. Modern properties often have feature high ceilings in the living room and large windows. Pick lighting to accentuate the shape of the room at the same time creating a focal point – almost like a piece of furniture!
3. Personalise your bathrooms
Clean lines with contemporary units and tiles are great in a hotel but your bathroom should be practical with personality and warmth. Adding a freestanding storage unit can be useful for creating that extra space for towels and toiletries if you choose something that bit more fabulous you can also create an attractive feature. Choose an on trend colour scheme for towels and bath mats and pick out a few decorative items – candles, glass jars and pretty bottles grouped together are popular and can be easily updated and changed.
4. Accessorise and start living!
Accessorising is the best way to personalise your home particularly if you have not had the opportunity to choose the finish of the kitchen cabinets or the bathroom tiles. In the kitchen a kettle and toaster can be colourful and eye-catching against a high gloss white kitchen. Remember you can display your favourite and trendy kitchenware on shelving whilst storing bulkier less attractive items away in theme with the modern design and allowing the kitchen to feel more spacious.
Fresh and silk flowers and plants are guaranteed to bring any room to life – it can be hard to tell the difference!
Add plenty of personal touches – Artwork, candles and photos are just some examples of how you can add that personal touch along with familiar scents such as your favourite incense sticks. Put on music you love listening to and just make the house your own. It takes time to settle in to any new place, so don’t expect it to feel like home right away.
Kudos Villas are not just another estate agent in Cabo Roig.
