Home is where you are supposed to feel most comfortable. It should reflect your personality and tastes while also providing you with the perfect haven from the outside world. There are numerous ways you can decorate your home to your desires, yet so many of us put it all off.
Home renovations don’t have to be complicated. You don’t have to knock down a few walls or convert your garage into an extra bedroom to feel the benefit of improved interior design. With just a few simple changes, you can completely remodel your space for the better.
Listed below are just some ways we’ve compiled that require minimal effort, but maximum effect. Let’s get into it.
1. Throw Stuff Out
Your house doesn’t need to resemble an episode of Hoarders for there to be a problem. A lot of us hold on to way too much stuff, most of it we never even use. We look at our redundant items, and we think ‘that was expensive, I should hold onto it in case one day I need it’.
We’re here to tell you, once and for all, that you definitely don’t need to hold onto that dusty old chest of drawers. If you struggle to clear out old things, ask yourself three questions:
- Have I used this in the past year?
- Do I have something like this that performs a similar function?
- Does this fit in with how I want my home to look?
If you’re looking to create a more boutique looking home, a cabinet from 1842 probably isn’t your best option. Be honest with yourself. Sentimentality over furniture can be entirely justifiable, but it can also hold you back and clutter up your space.
2. Rework Your Bathroom
It’s probably the room you spend the least amount of time in, but it deserves some love too. Your bathroom is likely the recipient of the most judgment from guests when they visit. There are tons of ways to improve your bathroom space without having to pull the whole thing out.
You could hang up some art, buy bathroom vanity units, introduce some more storage so the contents of your medicine cabinet aren’t on display. There are multiple ways you can change up your bathroom for the better, without even having to look at a drill.
3. Fill it With Your Personality
Like we said above, your home should reflect who you are. If you are feeling uncomfortable in your own space, it’s probably because it doesn’t align itself with your own tastes. Head to Pinterest and search for some inspiration, or wander around a furniture store and see how they’ve arranged things.
You’ll naturally feel called to some styles more than others. Whether you enjoy the modern or the traditional, the minimalist or the patterned, there are multiple easy ways to spice up your space.
4. Introduce Some Greenery
Last on our list, but certainly not least, are the ever-versatile houseplants. They add so much character to a home and fit into any style room. They also actively improve the air quality of any space they inhabit, which is always a nice bonus.
They can reduce humidity and if you buy fake ones, they require no upkeep! Perfect for those among us who may or may not have killed a cactus before. A few large ones or a myriad of little ones can totally change the vibe of any room. Get creative!
Turn Your Home Into Your Home
Your house should be your very own sanctuary! You don’t need to break the bank to turn your home into your favorite place. Just some small changes, here and there, can totally overhaul how you feel at home.
