It’s not always easy finding ways to liven up your home’s interior without getting the overwhelming feeling of wanting to stop and start from scratch. Unfortunately, remodeling an entire living room, bedroom, or kitchen isn’t at the top of the priority list for most moms. The good side is that it doesn’t have to break the bank to create a cozy and functional home, and it won’t require much time and attention. These ideas are a mom no brainer. Below are some affordable and easy ways you can add a new element of comfort to your home that won’t break the bank.
Get some comfy pillows
When it comes to adding a desirable pillow selection, you can have any bed dimensions you desire. You can find pillows to fit. If you were able to stack a fort of stuffed animals on top of your bed every day as a child, then you’re allowed to stack a fort of soft fluffy pillows on top of your bed as an adult. As long as you’re prepared to take them off every night. Pillows add a touch of comfort and are a great aspect of any room. A good pillow will give your bedroom a relaxing and inviting feeling while the right throw pillows may give an exciting splash of color to a lively living room. There are many types of pillows and all types of pillows should be used. Don’t be afraid to mix and match.
Decompress your life and your home. Remember, mess causes stress. The best way to reduce your feelings of stress at home is to keep a simple and tidy area. It’s easy to miss the accumulation of “the clutter” with the high demands of children, work, school, and everything else on our to-do list. Going through our accumulation of stuff we hardly ever, if ever, use and donating those items will work wonders not only for the appearance of our homes but for our personal level of comfort.
Decorating with meaningful objects is a way to make use of those items that you’ve kept close, but aren’t quite sure what to do with. Create a story by personalizing it with family mementos and special artifacts that are sure to create comfort.
Think about your walls
Keep your wall colors light and neutral, such as a grey or beige. The neutral colors will allow you to switch decor without much fuss. Color combinations such as white, grey, and blue work well together and allow you to choose a darker or lighter color in contrast without taking away from the space of the area.
Add pictures that make you happy and that energy will fill your home. There’s nothing better than creating great memories with friends and family, other than being reminded of those good times every time you walk through your home. Adding personal photos to your home adds an intangible sense of comfort. If you would rather keep those sacred family photos for your own personal enjoyment, you may want to add pieces of art to liven up your living space. Anything from a simple canvas painting to unique wall art are great options.
Lighting and space
Natural lighting gives off the best possible lighting for large open spaces. Not only is it a wonderful energy saver, but there is also invigorating energy when a room is filled with natural sunlight. Function and elegance work best on a large window. Light colors and fabrics allow light to pass through and have the least chance of fading from the sun over time. If you don’t have a large window to bring in sunlight, mirrors are a great alternative to make your room feel brighter. Putting a mirror perpendicular to your window can bounce the light around the room. Putting the mirror in the wrong spot will have little to no effect.
Make the room smell good
Maintain a relaxed atmosphere and freshen the air at the same time by adding fresh flowers to any room in your house. Thanks to their aromatherapeutic faculties, fresh flowers improve your mood, add a touch of lovely mother nature, and are always a beautiful accent piece to any kitchen, living room, or bedroom. If you’re not able to have fresh flowers, but would like the scent, there are many other floral fragranced options. Many stores carry oil diffusers and potpourri options and there are many to choose from. You’re sure to find one that’s right for you.
