If your home has been slacking in the character department lately (or always), here’s an easy solution: add some ‘staches! A well-placed mustache adds flair and energy, plus it’s always good for a laugh. Here are four signs it’s mustache time:

Your Floor Game is Lame. If your floors are decidedly not cool don’t start saving for a major renovation just yet. You can turn that floor frown upside down with a simple accessory addition! Ditch the “been done” throw rug at the front door and lay down this mustache rug from Urban Outfitters. You’ll make a serious statement without ripping up a single inch of carpet!

Your Lamp Screams “BORING.” If your lamp blends in with your wallpaper so well that you sometimes forget it even exists, it may be time for a change. All you need to give your lamp a kick in the pants is a paper mustache and a hot glue gun! If you’re not into giving your lamp permanent facial hair, use double-sided tape instead of glue. Blogger Kristi at Live and Love Out Loud says, “Everyone needs a mustache lamp,” so give it a try!

Your Mugs Lack Manliness. If your before-work routine is getting a little dull, give it a manly (and humorous) start with a mustache mug! We love this one from the emoorestore Etsy shop. Hold up your dapper mustache mug and tell a few jokes. (Our fave is: “I mustache you a question... but I'm shaving it for later.”) Classic pun.  

Your Sack Needs Spice. If your bedroom décor gives off a distinctly Downton Abbey vibe (but not in a good way), it’s definitely time to get burly. Kick your bed’s personality up a few notches with these mustache pillows from Urban Outfitters. Even the most run-of-the-mill duvet and bedframe will make a bold statement if you put a handlebar pillow set on top of it!
