So. The world may seem challenging at times (LIKE RIGHT NOW). The one place we can all run off to feel safe and secure, and that is our home. Now, at the risk of quoting Will Samson, maybe it’s time to make your home a happy home.
Now, while most people believe that when it comes to being a happy home, it’s all about the people that live in it, to some degree, that is, of course, true, but that’s just not the direction I’m going in with this post.
In this post, I’m going to be looking at the things you can do in your house to make it feel amazing in every room. I know this may sound a little crazy, but when you see these solutions, you’ll understand.
Make It A Little Lighter
Lighting is one of the most important things to consider. The right lighting can give the room a complete makeover. Try changing the way the light interacts with the rest of the room. Quite often, you will find that if you have heavy curtains or trees blocking the natural light, the areas in your home without light will often feel quite negative. Try simply letting in some natural light and appreciating just how much better your house feels.
Refresh Your Floor
Following on from the last section, make the most of natural light by refreshing your floor.
If you are like many of us and have a tired and old carpet, then maybe it’s time to start looking at a Carpet Store or two to see if you can get some new ideas to lift the mood in your house with a bright and wonderful new floor.
Get Rid Of The Clutter
The final thing we are going to be looking at is a busy mess or clutter, as it’s more commonly known. When it comes to a house feeling a little miserable, you can more or less guarantee that it will have a lot of clutter around.
Now, we aren’t saying you should go minimal, what we are saying is simply try and box up a few needless things and look at the difference it makes to your living area. You will quite possibly be shocked.
Clutter generally adds a busyness to the brain, and this will result in a darkened feeling in any cluttered rooms.
A Happy Home
The one thing you have to remember is that the way our homes look and are set out, can do a lot for our mental well-being, and often if we make some little changes, we can see the whole mood of our home switch around.
Some of the things in this post will be free, and others will not. You don’t have to do all of these things. However, if you want the best feel for your home, often it’s beneficial to do as much as you can.
