With the Covid-19 pandemic upon us, many people are spending a lot more time at home than normal. This can have a different effect depending on your situation, but for many people it presents
a great opportunity. It can be stressful being at home, especially if you’re working from home and trying to look after children. However, that’s all the more reason to put a little thought into what you can do to revitalize your home, instead of escaping from it as we normally might do instead. You can even get the kids to help!
Here’s a few ideas on how you can turn your home into a peaceful place to be while waiting out the virus.
New Colours for a New Room
Painting is often a dreaded task. Especially if you’ve got a lot of furniture to move out of the way. Even more so if your schedule only allows you to do a little bit at a time, meaning your home is in
chaos for weeks. However, with a little more time on your hands, why not seize the day and give your walls a refresh! The best thing about painting your walls is you’re in total control. If you’re looking for a relaxing, earthy vibe, go for a neutral colour. Something light that will catch the natural light and make your living space a sanctuary. If you want something moodier, go for it! A comfortable room that reflects your personality is exactly what you want it to be.
De-Clutter Your Home
Well, the timing is a little off, but it seems like spring cleaning has come around a bit earlier in 2020. If you’re looking for ways to make your home more peaceful and comfortable, then removing clutter should be your number one priority. While many of us would say we’re quite comfortable with a little mess, there’s a limit! Removing clutter from your home makes each room feel that little bit more spacious while being so good for the soul. Having one less side table to walk around, or taking one old photo off the wall can really start to open things up. So, get your organising hats on, and get tidying for a more peaceful, relaxed home environment. You will wish you had done this before!
Upgrade your Furniture
Now, there’s never a bad time for a new furniture item. But the very best time is when you’re already doing a few other improvements to a room. Especially if you’re already de-cluttering, cleaning, or painting some walls. If you have to move furniture out of the way anyway, why not donate those tired old items and invest in a piece of furniture you have been wanting for ages? Now is the time…
