When it comes to home decoration, sometimes collectibles are the most fun thing that you can add in order to personalize your spaces. Obviously, you want to do the major projects first, like painting or putting up shelves for example. But after that, you can really start to make your place look unique, and one way to do that is by adding some collectibles to the mix.
A few different categories of collectibles to look into include decorative characters, glass figurines, antiques, or even sports memorabilia. Depending on the personalities of the people in the house, you can do any or all of these, or you can add or subtract at will. One nice thing about collectibles is often that they’re small and easy to put in or take out of a decorative theme.
When you purchase decorative characters specifically for the purpose of creating a collectible environment in your home, there are a ton of great options to showcase your creativity. There are characters from movies, characters from artists collections, or even characters that have been created by people to represent your current location! Almost every room in a house has some availability to create spaces for these character decorations, and when done with genuine passion, the results can be amazing.
For people with a little bit more money, you can buy glass figurines in collections that can have an incredible impact on the overall vibe of your home. Imagine what it would look like have a hutch in your kitchen with the whole set of glass figurines that come from a single artist. Not only does it look super interesting and unique, it probably will also hold its value over time, which makes it sort of like an investment.
Some houses are full of antiques that really give a unique flavor to the decorations as well. One of the good things about antiques in this regard is the fact that you can find antiques at thrift stores a lot of times, and get an incredible value for very low price. The more often you shop at these thrift stores, the better your eye will get for purchasing the ones that are the best.
And finally, if you are a sports fan, you can find sports collectibles and use them for home decoration as well. Baseball gloves, baseball cards, trophies, photos of sport stars – collecting all of these things and putting them in some sort of a themed presentation can be a really unique conversation piece in your home, as well as giving it a personal flavor. Especially if you played the sport when you were younger, you can start with yourself, and then move up to professional memorabilia as your collection increases.
