The pandemic lockdown has made you notice many things about your home that you wish to change. Or maybe with the increased number of DIY home decor videos online, you want to switch your living space look. Or, you simply want to keep busy, and renovating your home will do that for you.

Re-doing home decors has been proven to improve mental health by giving a fresh and new feeling. To revive your home into a fresh look, use these tips:

Eliminate unnecessarily

Eliminate what you do not use or like. After being stuck home for months, this is the best time to declutter. There might be items you do not like anymore and take up a lot of space, affecting how you feel about your home.

Throw out what you don’t use anymore and implement storage solutions for what you intend to keep. It will help reduce chaos and leave everything neat and organized.

Rethink your space planning

The layout has a significant effect on the way things function and the overall aesthetic within a home. A new furniture layout can create more space and give a sense of freedom. Moving a few pieces of furniture will make a huge difference. For instance, you can move the bed for better sleep at night, allow room for storage, create a working space or allow light into the room.

Making it a mini spring cleaning

You do not have to wait for the actual spring cleaning; refreshing and reviving your home can be done at any time. Cleaning your home thoroughly can create a significant change that will feel like a new place. If you live in a condo, you probably clean every day, but here’s your chance to polish where you only dust and scrub thoroughly.

Build around your tastes

Take a look at your home and check out decor ideas online. Take note of what feels like you and what you’ll be able to achieve easily. Is it something that you are ready to be part of? For example, a mid-century lamp, a favorite color, or a peaceful painting. They can all be used as your inspiration for the focus of the room. It could also be as simple as removing other items to highlight what you love.

Plan out your steps

It may help if you decide whether you want to focus on something specific when refreshing your living space. This might include organizing, decluttering, adding, or rearranging décor. Maybe you want to revive your garden or yard to make it something that’s pleasurable to look at. For the best results, look into hiring a professional landscape architect who can help optimize your space while creating aesthetically pleasing results.

To help envision how your garden will look, you can have a 3D rendering made. It’s a great way of avoiding guesswork and being sure of what to expect.

Adopt a plant

Plants add so much to a room. Other than making it look more vibrant, they also improve air quality by removing dust and toxins. Caring for plants has also shown positive benefits in the well-being of people. It’s advisable that you buy succulent plants to avoid allergic reactions. Lastly, keep them out of reach of pets and children.

Play with color and moods

Color is important when it comes to home decor. If you are re-decorating a Condo for the next tenant, consider neutral colors. It’s a safe pick considering you don’t know what their preference is.
