We are all spending so much more time at home these days, perhaps more time than we ever have before. Being a bit of a hermit, this hasn’t bothered me in the slightest – it has been quite the opposite. I gave birth to our beautiful baby boy, Noah, at the end of 2019 and I will be eternally grateful for all of this extra time at home with home. I am one of the lucky ones; I know not everyone has adjusted to our new way of living with such ease. I can assure you that during this time, especially the quiet time; I have noticed that our home could do with a little TLC and sprucing up. If your home is feeling a little neglected too then you should try these 5 easy ways to spruce it up.
- Add Flowers
Flowers are one of the cheapest and easiest ways to instantly liven up a room. Buy a bunch of your favorite kind, along with a brightly colored new vase, and you will have created an instant mood booster. Cut flowers can last for up to 2 weeks if you properly care for them so you only need to buy flowers twice a month to have them add cheer to your space the whole month long.
- Get New Wall Art
Wall art is a gorgeous and impactful way to spruce up any room in your home. Animalist.art has some beautiful ways to personalize your art which will be sure to put a smile on your face. Imaginative and creative wall art is always going to breathe new life in your space, despite horrific global pandemics.
- Add Colorful Scatters
Bright and cheerful scatters can be changed out seasonally and are a cheap and easy way to lift the mood in your home. I strongly suggest buying the textured designs, there is just something so stylishly trendy about texture in interior design this year. Ombre patterns are also a hit for home décor enthusiasts.
- Install Display Shelves
If you have recently realized just how cluttered your living room is then installing display shelves is the answer to all of your problems. They come in many different shapes and sizes and can be made out of really anything these days. Keep them neutral if the objects you intend on displaying are brightly colored, this will help to harmonize and balance the aesthetic of your room.
- Paint The Interior Doors
A simple coat of paint can do wonders for your home. You don’t need to repaint everything all at once, that is a major undertaking, but if you have a weekend to spare (and let’s face it, who doesn’t these days?) then you can start by painting a few of your interior doors. This shouldn’t be a costly project so you can repaint them every year if you wanted to. Just remember to buy all the bits and pieces you need to do the job properly, you don’t want to end up having doors that no longer fit their frames.
