How to add handmade pieces to your home decor

When it comes to your home décor, you want to have aesthetic pieces, but you also want pieces that can tell a story. Handmade décor pieces are the ones that will tell a story and showcase the details you add to your home décor. So if you’re looking for a way to give your home a sense of uniqueness, warmth, and authenticity, this is the perfect article for you. In this article, we put together a list of tips on how to easily integrate handmade items into your home décor to add character and personality to your space.


Find a theme
Before you begin adding handmade pieces to your home, it's helpful to establish a theme or style that reflects your personal taste. Are you going for rustic, bohemian, modern, or eclectic décor? Choosing your preferred style will help you make your choices when it comes to the entire home décor, but also to the handmade items. This first step is very important to ensure a cohesive look in your space and to give you a starting point.

Local crafts
Supporting local artisans and crafters is not only a wonderful way to find unique handmade pieces but also a way to show you value your community. To discover these hidden gems you should check out some local craft fairs, art galleries, and boutique shops. You should find a range of items, from ceramics and textiles to furniture and artwork which will make it easy for you to pick everything you need for your home.

Handmade pottery
Something that is seen everywhere now, thanks to the maximalist approaches to home décor, are pottery pieces. Adding handmade pottery pieces as décor items, or functional items to your home is a great way to showcase unique pieces. Through handmade pottery you can explore different cultures and play around with historical or modern vibes. You can check out some Irish handmade pottery and see how to incorporate it into your home décor.

Artwork is an excellent way to add a personal touch to your décor. Look for paintings, sculptures, or prints created by artists you like. The art you choose should resonate with you and complement your home's colour palette and style, so choose well. A gallery wall featuring a mix of handmade artworks can be an eye-catching and meaningful addition that will easily start conversations whenever you have guests over.

Kitchen Accessories
With all the fuss that’s going on about hosting dinner parties, you need to add some handmade kitchen accessories to your collection. Having handmade tableware, some custom plates or glasses, or an embroidered tablecloth will add a very personal touch to any dinner you host. Mix and match different pieces for an eclectic dining experience, or keep it super classy with black and white touches.
