Home is a lot of things for most people these days. From being the place you rest and relax to it being your workspace and much more, the home front can get a bit stale after spending so much time there.
If it’s time to give your home a fresh look and feel, try these simple, yet effective, ways to brighten, freshen and revitalize the ambiance of your home.
Take Advantage of Natural Lighting Sources
Natural lighting not only makes your home look and feel better, but it also has the ability to make you feel better, too. Instead of turning on the lights when you get up in the morning, throw open the shades and let the sunshine in.
Not many windows in the room? No worries. Try hanging a mirror or two opposite a window to reflect light. In addition to brightening the space, mirrors also make a room appear larger.
Consider Light Colored Furniture
Light-colored furniture looks fresh and clean, giving your space an instant pick-me-up. Try choosing furnishings in whites, light grays, and beiges, to brighten any room.
Not sure you want to commit to white furniture? Try putting light-colored slipcovers on instead. You’ll get the same effect and be able to remove them to wash them if need be.
Let Nature Inspire You
Think wicker, cotton, woven materials, etc. for décor and accent pieces to give your home the freshness of nature.
In your living room, for example, switch out heavy, dark-colored blankets for lightweight, colorful throws and remove any dark accent pieces and replace them with woven baskets and colorful pieces instead.
Bring the Outdoors In
One of the best ways to freshen your space – literally – is adding potted plants and flowers. The addition will add a fresh, clean vibe and instill the air with extra oxygen, which is always a good thing.
If you are cursed with a black thumb, you can add faux plants around your home to get the same green vibe without all the hassle of keeping the plants alive.
Whatever reason you have for wanting to give your home a fresh look and feel, the ideas above are perfect for the task. From flooding your space with natural light to adding lots of green plants and colorful flowers, you can transform your home into a bright and breezy space with just a few easy changes.
