Decorating a house is a very personal experience. While there are several styles that are universally popular (Scandi, minimalism, greyscale etc), most people want to put their own stamp on their home by making interiors choices that stand out as individual.
It can be hard to find inspiration for interior design ideas that haven’t been done a thousand time before. If you want something truly unique, it might be time to consider bespoke.
Interior Design Ideas for a Unique Home
These are my top unique interior design ideas to get you started.
Go for a Designer Radiator
Radiators can be so much more than a boring white rectangle under your window. Yes you can paint them, you can even cover them, but have you ever thought about completely changing them?
There are so many different designs of radiator that you will honestly be blown over when you realise what’s available!
You might have to do a little research for this purchase, like what type of radiator you can go for with the space you’ve got available. You’ll also need to work out what BTU output you need. This is much less in-depth than you think, you just have to fill in the boxes on an online calculator.
Invest in a Bespoke Coffee Table
I didn’t even know this was a thing until I was chatting to my friend whose husband does it in his spare time. My friend’s husband is a joiner, but on weekends he designs and makes bespoke furniture (the most popular being coffee tables). She showed me a gallery of some the the designs people have commissioned and I’ve been dreaming of having one ever since. Yes, it might be a little bit of an outlay, but bespoke never goes out of style!
Buy Handmade Textiles
When you’re looking to buy rung, throws and blankets, search the handmade marketplaces like Etsy or Not On The Highstreet. Handmade items will either be a one-off or part of a limited range of stock, you’ll avoid everyone and his dog having the same textiles as you.
You could always take it one step further and go for original art from unknown artists. Attend local shows or visit local galleries to find something that no one else has.
When you’re looking for unique ways to decorate your home, you may have to go further-a-field to find what you’re looking for. It might even take you a bit longer to find the perfect items to complete the look, but trust me – stick with it, it’s worth it!
Also, if you’re looking for developments in West Toronto, you might want to consider new condos.
