The pandemic means we’ve all spent more time inside than ever before, and now that a lot of companies are switching to flexible working, it means people are still going to be spending a lot of in their homes. Some people took to redecorating and revamping their home during the pandemic to make it more comfortable, or to finally achieve a dream of theirs. Of course, some people are still wanting to give their house a makeover, and if you’re one of these people then keep reading for a few tips on how to do this.
Find your aesthetic
To make a house a home you really need to make it yours, and the best way to do that is to know what your own aesthetic is and what you like, and to decorate based on that. Make a board on pinterest and add designs to it that you like and see what fits together, compare designs and see which you like more, or add something that really appeals to you even if it’s a little weird or out there. Once you’ve got your aesthetic figured out, you can start thinking about adding some of these designs and accessories to your home, and can refer back to the board for inspiration, and keep checking in for new ones. You might even be able to find some small businesses you could support by shopping with them for your new style.
Change your décor
A very quick and easy change you can make to help your home feel more alive is to change some of the décor. It’s easy to get tired of seeing the same things over and over again, so look online or nip out to the shops to find some stuff that catches your eye. It could be a new ornament, or a fancy mirror, or some soft furnishings for the living room. Whatever it is, it’ll be sure to make the place feel a little nicer and warm. But don’t get rid of any old decorations that you decide to move, keep them in storage for a while and see if you can find a new spot for them in your house, or gift it to a friend who would appreciate it.
Let more light in
This may seem an odd suggestion, but when you’re inside a lot, especially recently, it can become quite tiring and draining on your mental health. And although daily walks and going out to meet friends is definitely something you should do, if you’re working from home then going outside isn’t an option. So instead try and let more light in! Keep the curtains and blinds wide open during the day, and use things like mirrors or crystal decorations to help bounce the light around the room. Some luxury home builders in Perth have a big emphasis on windows and light in their designs, as it is known to help with mental health, and show off the interior of the home more.
These few small suggestions can make a big difference to a home, so why don’t you try it? And if you’re worried about cost, you can always check out charity shops and places like eBay to see what they have on there. Redecorating doesn’t have to be expensive, and your home should feel like somewhere you want to relax and enjoy.
