How To Fall In Love With Your Home Again

(Published on - 2/11/2018 6:09:52 PM)

Whether it’s the neighbors or the wallpaper, there are usually a couple things about our homes we’d like to change. Here are four easy solutions to your common home woes:

Problem: My house needs more personality.

Solution: Paint the walls! An easy and cheap way to transform a room is to pick a new paint color. There has been a lot of modern research on the psychology of color and some argue that color can affect our moods, so there’s merit in brightening up your kitchen with a yellow accent wall or bringing calm into your bedroom with a soothing lavender. If you crave a color that’s truly bold or trendy, fear not. A quick neutral paint coat can save your resale value down the line. If you are shy about a full on wall treatment, even some paint on a prominent furniture piece or a unique, colorful, wall-sized art piece can spice up your space in no time.

Problem: My house feels tiny.

Solution: Mirrors and floor-to-ceiling designs are your friend. It’s not true that you have to only use one piece of tiny furniture and hope a room opens up. Be unafraid to take design around the whole room: place a mirror on the wall instead of an art piece to open the area, take that newfound paint color all the way up to the ceiling and accent it with floor-to-ceiling light drapes to give all your spaces a grandiose feeling.

Problem: My house could use some updates.

Solution: Change your home from residence to oasis. Design each room after a favorite travel destination and turn a walk through your home into the ultimate staycation. Convert a back patio, unused extra garage or basement into a secondary living space to give your home the feeling of a new addition without needing a construction crew or a visit from HGTV. All of these will help modernize your home with things easily found at the home store.

Problem: My house is fine — it’s my yard I don’t like.

Solution: Makeover your outdoor areas by creating a focal point for design. Have a pool? Set up a grilling area and lounge chairs so you can invite friends over during the warmer months. If you are set on lounging with a smaller group, salvage some wood or make use of that beautiful oak tree and set up a hammock to enjoy the ambiance. Even some upcycled pallets with waterproof cushions and a fire pit can transform your backyard into a new space you enjoy, and an extension of the home you’ve learned to love again.
