There’s nothing Harry Potter fans want more than for their houses to look like they stole them from the movies. Magical, mystical, and a dream come true, what fan wouldn’t want to translate their love for their favorite books of all time into their home’s design.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to own a castle to make your home look Harry Potter-themed. There’s a lot more that goes into building a theme other than architectural design. Things like colors, lighting features, and décor items make a world of difference.
If you’re looking to turn your house into a Harry Potter-themed space, here are some suggestions that might help.
Create A Potion Shelf For A Solemn Effect
Hogwarts isn’t complete without a shelf dedicated to magical potions. This décor item isn’t difficult to build, and will really bring magic to your kitchen space. You could even turn your spice rack to look like a potion shelf.
You can easily buy one off the internet or build the wooden structure yourself and populate it with potion-bottle shaped containers that are filled with spices. You can print the labels in a Harry Potter font and theme for the complete illusion.
Style Your House In Stone Tiles To Bring The Theme To Life
Hogwarts is all about stone. Stone walls, stone pathways, and stone décor. When thinking about styling your home’s exterior, its best to ditch wood and embrace stone-y designs and tiles. Build a stone wall backdrop for your garden and add a fountain in the middle to give off the magical look you’re going for.
If you want to add a splash of color, place some brightly colored plants along the borders and the fountain to liven up the space.
Use Antique Lighting Features And Benches To Bind The Look Together
Ever notice how they use lanterns and candles to light up Hogwarts? To create a similar effect, try using antique lighting fixtures or Victorian or bracket lanterns around your garden space.
Another thing that will contribute to the HP-esque effect that you’re trying to go for is the addition of benches and bollards.
