Mini Makeover: Simple Ways to Revive Your Home
If your home is starting to feel boring, dull, or otherwise uninspiring, it’s time to make some improvements! Aim to turn your home into a calmer and healthier space that reflects your values and aligns with your needs. Your home environment should spark your creativity, foster relaxation, and offer comfort at the end of a long day. Here’s how to achieve it!
Do Some Redecorating
If you want to refresh your home but don’t want to invest in costly remodeling projects, a little light decorating will do the job! Paint the walls and invest in a few new interior decorations. Better yet, to really personalize your living spaces, check into wallpaper that’s customizable. You’ll find that there’s a wide range of easy-to-apply prepasted and removable wallpaper products on the market, some that even allow you to upload your own designs! You can also play around with colors and textures.
Swap out old, worn furniture for modern pieces that reflect your personality. This is a great chance to use your home décor to make small rooms feel bigger and large rooms feel cozier. Using interior design hacks, like installing mirrors and hanging floor-to-ceiling curtains, can trick the eye into seeing a room as bigger than it really is!
Updated flooring can make a significant difference in the look and feel of a home. Consider switching from carpet to hardwood or laminate, or swap out worn carpet for a new color with a fresh design. Or perhaps it’s time to give your kitchen the update you’ve been dreaming off with new countertops, a fresh look for cabinets and a
Lastly, take a look at your bedroom. This room should feel like a safe and secure sanctuary. Choose calm colors for your furnishings, linens, paint, and décor. Add layered lighting so you can turn off bright overhead lights in the evening and enjoy a warm, atmospheric glow. You may even want to add a soothing scent to your bedroom in the form of candles, fresh flowers, or an essential oil diffuser.
Invest in Outdoor Improvements
Don’t let your home design improvements stop with the inside of your home. During the pandemic, we all spent a lot more time enjoying our outdoor living areas. By now, you likely have a few ideas for improvements that would make your landscaping work better for you and your family. If you want some space for your kids to run around, but you could do with a little less lawn maintenance, some strategic landscaping is in order. Hire a professional who provides landscape design services to help you optimize the use of your outdoor space, ensuring the result is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Another option is to add an outdoor kitchen. This is a great update if your family likes to spend a lot of time in the backyard and loves to cook. A sink, an island range hood, a built-in gas grill and durable counterspace will bring together the perfect outdoor escape.
Bring the Outdoors Inside
Incorporating plants into your interior decor is a great way to add a pop of color to a neutral palette or compliment a colorful design. Plus, indoor plants have been shown to provide mental and physical health benefits! Indoor plants can reduce stress and anxiety, boost productivity, improve your air quality, and lower blood pressure. You don’t need to have a green thumb to enjoy these benefits. Plenty of indoor plants can thrive with very little effort from you!
Do Away with Clutter
If you don’t have a lot of time or money to spend on redecorating your home, work on organizing it from A to Z. You can start by decluttering, which is one the best things you can do to refresh your space. Getting rid of the stuff you no longer want, creating space to store everything you use, and keeping the visual clutter to a minimum can take a lot of weight off your shoulders. Eliminating clutter will help you think more clearly, clean more efficiently, and get more out of your available space. Stylist suggests decluttering in small, bite-sized chunks so you can avoid getting overwhelmed.
It’s been a long couple of years living with the pandemic. Are you ready to shake things up? Cleaning, redecorating, and otherwise improving your home can help you put the pandemic behind you and start fresh!
