Chances are that after spending so much time at home, you may be feeling a little burnt out on your surroundings. But just because you’re indoors more often doesn’t mean you have to feel that way. Your home should be welcoming and peaceful.
Here are seven budget-friendly ways you can bring joy to your house.
1. Add a fresh coat of paint.
You don’t have to paint the whole house (although you could). Try color blocking, painting an accent wall or painting built-in shelves to create definition and character to your space.
2. Sweeten the scent.
Specialty or seasonal soaps, lotions and candles are an affordable way to personalize your home and add a little feeling of luxury.
3. Play with lighting.
Natural light brightens the room and positively impacts your mood. If you can’t take advantage of natural light, try swapping out some of your current fixtures for more interesting (or functional) lighting.
4. Use natural elements.
Houseplants add color and can help reduce stress. If you have trouble keeping plants alive, freshly cut flowers provide an eye-catching alternative.
5. Choose decor thoughtfully.
A favorite painting or photos of friends and family can lighten the mood and bring a smile to your face. Even practical touches, such as knobs and fixtures can make your space feel more personal.
6. Designate a stress-free zone.
This room can be used for meditation, yoga, reading or listening to music — somewhere to relax and focus on things you enjoy.
7. Tidy up.
Get in the habit of making beds, doing dishes and de-cluttering counters as needed. Sure, it may feel like a chore at the time (it is!) but the result is a happier, healthier home.
