You may have a small house with a few rooms, not much to boast about. However, if you follow some simple and practical tips, you can make your house (whether big or small) into a comfortable and beautiful home – and a better place to live in – a Home Sweet Home!
IS YOUR HOUSE A HOME?
There are people who believe in buying the most expensive items for their house, and then there are others who opt for a minimalist look. What about you?
While there are no right or wrong ways to personalize your home and a lot depends on your personal taste, there are simple things to consider while decorating and customizing your home space.
And it’s the best way to ensure your home reflects your personality and offers the utmost comfort.
A Place for Everything
Irrespective of the size of your house, you can appoint a place for everything around the home, making it easy to keep your space well organized and comfortable.
Right from your living room and bedroom to your kitchen shelves, cupboards, and your kid’s study room – when you have a place assigned for all your possessions, you can easily cut through the clutter, maintain cleanliness, and make it hassle-free to find things around the home.
Everything in Its Place
Once you have allocated space for all things in the house, make it a habit to put them back in their allocated spaces after use. This way, you can ensure that your home always remains organized and well-kept.
If you have children in the house, teach them the importance of keeping their space clutter-free.
You will be surprised to notice just how much time you can end up saving by keeping things back in their designated places.
Discard Unnecessary Items
Nothing saps the energy of your home like clutter. Even more so if there are items lying around the house in an unusable condition.
So, make it a habit to throw away things you don’t need.
Say, for example, there is an old transistor lying around which no longer works and which no one cares about.
Why not get rid of it by selling it or giving it away to someone? You’ll not just free up some space but also minimize unwanted clutter.
Choose the Right Theme for Your Home
When planning the look of your home, a good place to start is choosing a theme of your choice. If you have a favourite colour theme, keep it in mind as you go about purchasing furnishings, drapes, etc.
Other themes you can choose from include going the natural way with wooden accents and furniture pieces in Mahogany, Walnut, and Teak, etc.
If you are a nature lover, you can select nature as your home’s theme. There are a large variety of natural accents and furnishings available with images of birds, trees, etc. Earthy colours are also an excellent choice.
If comfort is of paramount importance, you can select soft furniture pieces such as a rocking chair, soft rugs, a cosy couch in bright shades, etc.
Pay Attention to Cleanliness
A clean house makes a beautiful home so try your best to keep your home as clean as possible.
Regular spring cleaning is necessary, especially if you live in the city where the dust and pollution levels are extremely high.
Get the whole family involved in the cleaning tasks and assign roles so everyone can do their part in keeping the home clean.
Bring in Some Greenery
If you have a small balcony, garden, or a little gardening space, try to keep it green. Invest in some good-quality potted plants and water them well.
Decorate your living room with a vase of freshly picked flowers. It will brighten up your day and your room.
Open Your Home’s Windows Regularly
Good ventilation is extremely essential for your home. Let the sunlight come in every day.
Use cheerful and bright coloured home furnishings or if you prefer subtle shades, look for pastel colours depending on your personal taste.
Rejuvenate with Music
Play some good relaxing music in the house every day, something you enjoy listening to. Doing so will refresh you as well as send good vibrations in the house.
Your home is your haven. Make it a special place for you and your loved ones! Look at your home objectively and follow the tips above to convert your house into a beautiful, warm, and loving home. And last but not the least, stay positive and happy!
Enjoy and love where you live because ‘Home Sweet Home’ is ‘The Place to Be’!
