When you’re generally stressed and disinterested in life, it helps to look for a change of scenery and to refresh your environment. Take a short vacation, and when you’re rested and ready, reinvigorate your living space for a fresh start.
You don’t have to completely remodel or renovate your home to give it new life. Sometimes, changing your decor and adding several transformative pieces can completely spruce up your space.
Plants can liven up your home, not to mention improve the air quality inside. Place live plants in your living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and hallways to add a heap of green in your living space.
It has several health benefits to your mind and body, aside from you being able to breathe cleaner air. Adding plants in your home lessens your risk of illnesses, like sore throat, fatigue, cough, runny nose, because plants can help clear toxins and can potentially reduce airborne microbes inside the house.
There’s also such a thing called horticultural therapy, which is the practice of gardening and taking of plants to manage certain mental illnesses and stress, including dementia, depression, and schizophrenia.
If plants liven up your home, art completes your interior design. Decorating your home is like creating an outfit. Stylish clothes aren’t enough to polish an outfit; you need to accessorize to complete the look. In the same way, you need to add decorate your home to achieve a finished look, and wall art does that for your interior.
Paintings, photographs, and tapestries are some of the decorative pieces that can bring color and provide texture to your home. These pieces of wall art can add a focal point in the room, capture the attention, and make the space more stylish.
When choosing art to hang on your wall, keep in some considerations, like size, color harmony, and cohesion to create balance in your design.
Flowers add beauty and elegance to any home. Unfortunately, real flowers are short-lived and expensive. And if you have pollen allergy, you’ll be too busy sneezing up a storm to appreciate them. Fortunately, you can use lifelike silk flowers to experience their loveliness and beautify your home, without the pesky allergic reactions, of course.
You don’t have to worry about your floral decor looking fake and plasticky. High-quality silk flowers closely resemble real flowers, and they also come in many types, sizes, and arrangements. Plus, you don’t have to wait for a certain season to get your favorite flowers.
Keep the silk flowers clean, and store them properly when they’re not in use. Later, you can take them out again when you need them.
Hanging a chandelier in the room adds elegance to the place. A chandelier has a kind of luxe that can’t be replicated by other types of lighting fixtures. Like diamond jewelry, it adds sparkle and sophistication to enhance the beauty of anything and any place.
You can put a chandelier on every room for a stylish flare. Or you can hang one in a specific part of the house to make more novel.
Chandeliers are chosen for their aesthetic value, not functionality, so you may need to supplement it with other kinds of lighting.
Sleek Plumbing Fixtures
Don’t underestimate the transformative power of sleek and porcelain-white plumbing pictures in your home. They can make your kitchen sink and bathroom look clean and organized. And if you choose wisely, your plumbing fixtures can help you save money on your water bills too.
For example, using Saniflo upflush toilets can help you avoid clogging, since the built-in grinding mechanism breaks down solid waste. The toilet only uses 1.28 gallons per flush (GPF), which makes it more water-efficient than standard toilets are, which use 1.6 GPF.
The same goes for your faucets and showerhead. Don’t just choose based on the appearance. Use low-flow faucet aerators and showerheads to conserve water and save on your water bill.
Use a personal work for your decor to add character to your home. It can be anything—a painting, framed calligraphy, sculpture, woven drapes, or craft projects—as long as it’s something made by your hands.
If you’re not keen on making things, use something that has a special meaning to you and your family, maybe an heirloom, a memorable present, or your children’s arts and crafts project.
