October 2016

With new customizable decor options popping up every day, you can transform any room, apartment or house into a home. From bed linens to wall clocks to shower curtains, almost every object in your home can be upgraded to one that truly feels like your own. Check out our roundup of some of the best offerings on the web.

Best for Custom Art Prints: Minted

Start with independent designers’ templates, then customize them to your preference. Inspired by family trees, monograms, hometowns and family photos, Minted’s offerings come in playful prints and on-trend color schemes. (These work especially well as gifts for newlyweds or new homeowners, grads off to college dorms or expectant parents preparing a nursery.)

Best for Custom Fabrics: Roostery

Upload your own pattern or choose from indie designs to create fabric-based home products. Roostery offers an array of throw pillows and table linens, but its best pieces are modern upholstered armchairs. You can browse their fabric options by pattern—like Moroccan, ikat or florals—or you can search by color palette to see which fabrics will pair nicely together.

Best for Custom Bedding: Shutterfly

Make over your room with new, personalized bedding. Shutterfly is known for printing photos, but you can also upload homemade designs. Duvet and sham options allow you to combine text and imagery. Create playful pillowcases, too, embossed with your name, favorite sayings or phrases like “Early Riser” or “Night Owl.”

Best for Unexpected Accessories: Zazzle

Clocks, lampshades, door mats, tablecloths… Is there anything you can’t Zazzle? You could give your entire bathroom an overhaul with custom shower curtains, bath towels, bath mats and—believe it or not—even bathroom scales.

Best for 3D Art: Shapeways

Yes, that’s right—you can design and create your own 3D art. Peruse Shapeways’ artist-designed offerings, like vases, planters and sculptures, for inspiration. When you’re ready to try one of your own, upload your own model or use their 3D tools to start from scratch. The sky is the limit! (Technically, the size maximum and materials options are the limit, but dream big nonetheless.)
