Digital printing is increasingly being utilized by the businesses in the designing industry because of its cost-effective and ergonomic nature. After the initial costs have been covered, digital printing offers an effective means of achieving mass-produced and easily-customizable products at an economically favorable rate.
Perhaps the thing that matters that most with digital printing services are the added feature of customisability that has been previously absent, and which majorly influences the contemporary market. Now more than ever, people are accessing services that allow them to personalize what they wear, what they own, and what they buy.
Today’s fast-paced world leaves a person little room to breathe and they are left continuously searching for an identity. People no longer seek validation in conformity but want something that they can interact and identify with something that speaks to not just them, but to the rest of the world for them.
Some of these demands are met by the contemporary technology of digital printers, which are distinct from their predeceasing offset printers in their ability to easily tweak designs without a lot of hassle. Offset printers have a ready-made plate that is used as a stencil while digital printers utilize computer-based graphics and commands to spray ink on certain areas of a fabric; the latter is very obviously more superior in this regard.
Why should you be customizing your house?
No place in the world represents your identity better than where you live and what you own. There is a reason every room in the house looks different, has a distinctive color theme and a particular set of furniture for their utilities. You are highly likely to find dashes of pink all over a room that belongs to a girl than one where a boy lives in. Similarly, a child who loves basketball will be more likely to hang a basket on the back of his door than a Star Wars poster while a studious child will be more likely to have a small library of books, and a sitting space to read them in.
The point is, the place you occupy is filled with the things you own, all of which say something or the other about the person that you are and the things that you like. Creating a space of things that are you is not just a means to establish identity to others, but also a form of cultivating peace within yourself.
There is a reason you do not feel ‘at home’ in someone else’s house or in a public space; it has not been catered to your liking. If you surround yourself with the things that refresh and rejuvenate you, you feel more in touch with yourself as well as the world.
Keeping all of that in mind, we think customizing your house is extremely crucial and there are many ways to do it – the majority of them involving the simple and pocket-friendly task of getting fabric digitally printed.
Customizing Your House
If it has fabric, plastic or paper on it, chances are you can probably customize it by digital printing –and there are plenty of places like that around the house. From your cushion covers, bedsheets, couch wrappings, to photo frames, curtains, wallpapers, and cabinets –the possibilities are limitless. We have discussed some of them below.
1. Customiszable Bed Sheets
The bedroom is the centerpiece of the house, and the centerpiece of the bedroom is the bed, which is all about what you put on it. The first thing people notice when they enter a bedroom is the bed for obvious reasons; it is probably taking up a lot of space and it is aesthetically loud.
Picking good bedsheet matters and it can change the entire appearance of the room. Often people rely solely on switching bedsheets to change the look of their room, painting the walls a simple white and keeping the minimalist furniture. A change of bedsheets is all they need to prepare their house for a formal occasion or a lazy night in.
Customizing bedsheets to your taste is one of the many ways you can make a statement. If geometric patterns calm you down, or floral patterns make you feel closer to nature or you simply want your kid’s favorite character on their bed –simply get it customized to your taste. You will not have to search for months for the perfect pattern in your choice of color anymore all thanks to digital printing.
2. Customizable Upholstery
Whether we are talking about the living room, dining room, outdoors or the drawing room; couches are pretty important for many reasons. A formal gathering of your co-workers, an informal festive dinner with your family or a night in with your partner –it doesn’t matter which; people are going to be crashing it into the sofa.
They are not only the most used furniture around the entire house for all sorts of occasions, but they also are the anchor of every other piece of furniture surrounding it. People decorate their room keeping in mind the print, patterns, and colors of the couches that are often placed in the center; everything else comes afterward.
So why not customize the upholstery and make it feel more like your own, right? A sitting space where you feel more like yourself is the dream and digital printing can help it come true.
3. Customizable Cabinets
Cabinets are more than just a storage space, they take up a lot of room in just about every corner of the house. In the bathroom, they shield your private products, in the bedroom or dressing space, they hold practically everything you own and wear. Perhaps their need is most felt in the kitchen, where they store all your crockery, big and small, the jars of spices and boxes of cereal. They are singlehandedly holding your products together, stacking them away in a closed space.
Owing to the fact that they perform such an important function, it also becomes crucial to have an aesthetically pleasing element to them as well.

4. Customizable Throw Pillows
It may not seem like it, but pillows play a huge role in making the appearance of a room. The entire room could be plain and monochromatic and pop-up by using just the right color and theme of pillows; so don’t be fooled by their size.
You will also notice that they are in just about every room that you spend the most time in, adding that extra layer of comfort to your sitting and sleeping space. There are many varieties out there, but on the chance that you cannot find some good ones in the market to go along with your room, customizing the fabric of your pillow covers is always an option to consider.
5. Customizable Wallpaper
People are increasingly using wallpapers in preference to paints because of how convenient, cost-effective and diverse they are. There is lesser damage to the walls and the designs, colors, and patterns are countless. Most of all, however, is that you can change them whenever you get tired or bored of looking at the same patterns. Add to it the option of digitally-printed customisability and you have a win-win.
