Our surroundings have a big impact on our state of mind. If we’re in a calm and serene place, then we’ll find it much easier to tap into that mindset. If our surroundings are dark and chaotic, then we’ll find it easier to get into that state of mind. For this reason, it’s really important to check that our homes are in the former category. While we can handle grim places for a little while, if it’s continually like that, then eventually our mind will begin to flounder. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at a few key ways that you can nudge your home in the right direction.
If you’ve owned your home for a couple of years, then you’ll likely have a lot of items in there. And if you’ve been in there for five or more years and you’ve never had a clearout, then you’ll likely have even bigger problems. Moving forward, take a look at clearing away any items that you no longer want or need. You could sell them, donate them to a charity store, or simply throw them away if they’re past their best. Of course, there’ll be some big things that you still need to keep. For those items, look at installing smart storage solutions into your home — they’ll help keep the items out of sight.
Let In More Light
If you want to have a light and bright home…then you’ll need to work on letting more light into your property. This is one of those things that people overlook, but it can make a huge difference to the tone of your house. There are multiple ways to do it. You can switch out your windows for newer ones (or make them bigger), and work with a window cleaning company to ensure that light is always able to pass through them. You’ll also want to avoid placing any bulky furniture close to your light access points. Take another look at your interior lighting, too — if it’s something that you haven’t thought about before, then there are probably a couple of changes you can make that’ll help.
Light Paint and Mirrors
There are a couple of other tricks you can do that’ll make your space brighter and appear more spacious too. For example, having light paint on the walls, and hanging mirrors. This will help push the light around your home.
And, Furniture Placement
Once we fit out a home with furniture, we usually just let it sit there until we decide to buy new furniture, which, of course, will be many years down the line. But what if the way you positioned your furniture the first-time round wasn’t as good as it could be? It’s worthwhile looking at furniture placement ideas to see if there’s a better option out there. In doing so, you might find that you’ve made the room feel a lot more spacious, and all you’ll have done is moved the furniture around a little.
