5 Ways to Make Your House a Home



Have you just moved into a new place? How exciting!

Moving into a new place is like having a blank canvas to create your own living space. You have the creative freedom to start from scratch and craft an environment that reflects your personality and values.

Initially, when first moving into a house, it can be without character and seem bare and unwelcoming. The bare white walls and unoccupied floors are crying out for creativity!

In this article, the team at Avanti Print will discuss some options for getting creative with your home décor so you can accelerate turning your ‘house’ into a ‘home’.

1. Custom door mat.

The first impression of a home starts at the front door. If you can get everything set up correctly there, you set the mood for the whole house! By putting a personalised doormat, laser engraved with a custom design, you can add that personal feeling and express ownership of the special place where you now live. It makes the home feel that much more like your own!

2. Pine wood photo print.

A picture tells a thousand words. By putting up pictures of your favourite memories, or of family members who you no longer live with, you can conjure up the good times and add your own personal touch to your living areas. A pine wood photo print is an original way to add some distinction, that’s different from the standard ‘frame on the wall’ method of displaying images. Alternatively, an acrylic photo print might be more your speed.

3. Custom serving board.

The home may be where the heart is, but the stomach is the quickest way to the heart. We spend so much time in the kitchen, so why not make this space more personal too? A custom engraved serving board can add a much needed burst of character to this often ‘functional’ space. It’s a bonus that it’s bound to be a hit with your friends too!

4. Personalised apron.

While we’re on the topic of the kitchen, a personalised apron may also be a fun addition. While this isn’t an object of décor, it’s important to remember that how much a place feels like home also relates to how many memories you make living in it. Plus, a personalised apron really brings it home – you’re the king or queen of your own domain!

5. Custom neon signs.

People often use custom neon signs for events such as wedding or birthdays. However, a neon sign might also be appropriate for a games room or a sheltered outdoor entertainment area. It’s a very effective way of putting your own mark on your home and to come home to a sanctuary that represents all the things that matter to you.

There are so many different ways to make your house a home – we’ve only scratched the surface. Have a browse of our custom print & design website for inspiration!
