Your home is always a work-in-progress, regardless of whether you’ve been living there for 3 months or 30 years. If you’re not regularly looking at ways to improve your space, you could be missing a huge life-enhancing trick! For example, redecorating your home is good for your mental health; it encourages you to better yourself as a person as you keep productive, stay focused, and conquer challenges.
We know it can be difficult to know where to start, which is why we’ve put together a few creative and cosy ways to make your home more appealing. Hopefully the below will get the wheels turning in your head, and you’ll be well on your way to a better, more attractive property.
Make decluttering a fun exercise
You probably already know just how powerful a decluttering exercise can be for your home and mental health, but it’s not exactly the most thrilling of activities… but, you can make it fun! There are so many simple ways you can make this task more enjoyable, such as by doing it with a friend or listening to a new podcast as you work. The end result? A more appealing home that didn’t zap too much of your time or energy.
Experiment with different pieces of art
Redecorating your home doesn’t have to mean completely pulling it apart and starting from scratch. Simply introducing art to your home is a powerful way to make it more appealing, and you can be as creative as you like with this! Art has the power to uplift moods, to change the spirit of a room, and it gives you the opportunity to express yourself in ways not otherwise achievable. We recommend starting an online search to determine your tastes and budget.
Add some personal touches
If you’re committed to adding some warmth and cosiness into your home, ensure your space is filled with plenty of personal touches! This could be framed photos of your nearest and dearest in the living room, plants bursting with life in the dining room, or your favourite colour appliances in the kitchen. How much of your home currently is your home? Food for thought.
Upgrade your furniture
Making your home more appealing can be as simple as upgrading your furniture. For example, if you’ve had your dining table for quite some time now, replacing it with something fresh and exciting can transform the room – and there’s really not much effort on your part! Choose a table with some quirky table legs to inject some pizzaz into your dining room.
Don’t forget about your outdoor space
Your home is so much more than what’s inside those four walls. If you want to make your property more attractive, don’t forget to give care and consideration to your garden – both the front one and the back one. Why not get creative here, too? Make your own butterfly feeder to draw those beautiful creatures to your garden, or add a hammock and some fairy lights to create a cosy vibe on warmer evenings.
