Moving into a new home can feel strange. After all, it’s never been lived in — it just doesn’t quite feel like you belong there.
If you want to put your personal stamp on a new home, you need to find ways to add your personality to the space. Here are four great ways you can add a bit of personalization to your new home.
1. Choose Your Furniture Wisely
One of the best ways to add a touch of your personality to a new home is with furniture.
While you can’t do much about the layout of a new home, choosing furniture that matches your style — as opposed to merely picking what’s on sale — can lend each room a specific type of personality.
Whether you prefer modern or classic, comfortable or chic, the furniture you choose will make an indelible mark on the character of your home. And don’t just think of indoor furniture; your patio or back porch could use some sprucing up, too!

2. Switch Up the Floors
Changing the flooring can also be a great way to show your personal style.
One of the best places to do this is in the bathroom — not only is it a space you’ll use quite often, but it’s small enough that you can make a major change quickly.
Consider each flooring option for your bathroom. Take some time to check out bathroom tile showrooms to determine which patterns fit your personal tastes. If your budget requires a DIY approach, go ahead and tile that bathroom yourself! It’s easy.
