5 EASY WAYS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR HOME ALL OVER AGAIN

5 EASY WAYS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR HOME ALL OVER AGAIN

Posted: Friday December 31, 2021

The longer you live in one place, the easier it is to take it for granted. Over time, things deteriorate and needs change, but a home is forever, despite its flaws and imperfections. If you’ve found yourself wishing your home had more space or a better kitchen, it’s possible you’ve forgotten what made it so special in the first place. 

Below, we’ve put together a list of things you can do to regain that appreciation you once had for your home and fall in love with it all over again. 

1. ENHANCE THE LIGHTING IN EACH ROOM

Proper lighting is often overlooked as part of a room’s décor. However, having enough lighting can really change the look and feel of a room and even improve your outlook. Whether you add an artificial light source like a new lamp or overhead light fixture or you uncover windows to allow more natural light in, try to improve the lighting in as many rooms as possible to improve the way you see your home. 

2. ADD SOME HOUSE PLANTS

Indoor plants add a fresh, healthy feel to a home. They help clean the air and make the space feel “alive.” Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can opt for hard-to-kill varieties like spider plants and succulents that require very little care and maintenance. 

To create a nice display in your home, choose both hanging plants and ones you can place on tabletops around your house. If you’re not sure about caring for live plants, consider adding artificial ones instead.

3. MAKE AN UPGRADE YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED

Thanks to the Internet, you can find a plethora of DIY home projects to do that will give you a new appreciation for the home you live in. Whether it’s a new coat of paint on your front door or that kitchen island you’ve always dreamed of, complete that home project you’ve been putting off for way too long. 

4. CHANGE THINGS UP

If your budget doesn’t allow for completing a home improvement project, sometimes just changing things up a bit can help give you a new perspective on things. Try moving the furniture around in your living room to give it a new vibe. Or, better yet, completely swap two rooms. It’ll feel as if you’ve moved into a whole new house!

5. KEEP IT CLEAN

One of the things most people love about moving into a new home is its cleanliness. Life is messy, however, and it doesn’t take long for things to get cluttered up. Making it a point to keep your home clean and clutter-free will help you sustain an appreciation for it. 

Wash the windows, remove cobwebs, keep the floors clean, and put things away when you’re finished with them to make your home a place you like spending time in. 

It’s easy to take your home for granted, but at the end of the day, it’s where you go for comfort and security. Learn to appreciate your home again by trying one or all of the suggestions above.
