CLEVELAND, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Buying a home is the most significant purchase most people will ever make. In addition to the financial commitment, buying a home is also symbolic of a greater commitment to one’s community, officially making a person a part of that community. Since buying a home is such a large step, it’s no surprise that the first thing many people do upon moving in is begin the process of furnishing and remodeling their home to personalize empty rooms and transform them into comfortable spaces. For Latino homeowners, their home is not only a reflection of their personal style, but of their heritage as well. Fortunately, there are several ways to accomplish both.
— Create arched entryways. One of the signatures of Hispanic decor is the arched doorway. Latinos looking to add a touch of their heritage to their home’s interior can convert their doorways into arches throughout their home, which will also add character and potentially improve resale value down the line. For an added touch, leave the doorways bare with no doors where the home allows.
— Liven up your fixtures. Changing a home’s fixtures is another way of adding heritage to the home. For example, the Moen Casa Powder Room features designer faucets paired with perfectly coordinated accessories that bring an Old World Mediterranean touch to your powder room. The collection features unique accessories, such as a glass shelf, unique mirror or the distinctive towel ring to enhance and complete your preferred look.
— Accessorize with plants. An inexpensive way to make home feel more culturally sensitive is the use of plants native to your country. For instance, those hoping to add a touch of Mexico to their home can decorate with a cactus planted in a terra cotta pot.
— Revitalize the bathroom. Many homeowners cite the desire to remodel their bathrooms as a top priority in their new home. This is a great opportunity for you to add cultural influences to your new home. With Moen’s Bamboo(TM) Collection, homeowners can choose from a bevy of different faucet styles, offering its own dramatic accent reminiscent of soothing waterfalls and green leafy grades. Now you can coordinate your whole bathroom with the Bamboo collection which features accessories for the home that include a robe hook, pivoting paper holder, towel ring, decorative toilet tank lever, and curved bamboo towel bar.
— Showcase Hispanic-style Art. Don’t overlook artwork as a significant way to impart a cultural feel to your home. Hispanic culture has a rich artistic history, one that many Latinos are understandably very proud of. Latinos can exhibit art pieces such as sculptures and paintings as a way of adding beauty, elegance and history to their homes.
