5 Ways to Give Your Home a “New Feeling”

Here are 5 cost-effective ways to bring that new home feeling into your home.

Are you getting bored of the spaces in your home? Changing up your immediate environment is one of the simplest ways to turn up the newness in your spaces. Here are five ways you can bring that new home feeling into your home.

Design Your Home Around Wellness

When it comes to designing our homes, it is important to decide on how you can incorporate calm areas into your living spaces. Creating spaces free of digital distractions and conducive to healthy interactions with family and friends is a simple way to induce calmness.

Examples of this space could be a playroom for the kids, a sitting room separate to the main living space or a quiet seating area in the garden of your backyard space.

Creating spaces that promote wellness will make your home feel more inviting and a place you want to spend your down time.

Make Space to Move Around

A lot of the time it can be fun to switch up the layout of your spaces, but are you doing it with your lifestyle in mind? If you’re finding it difficult to traverse throughout your home, it might be time to rearrange. The idea is to make moving throughout your home easier.

Try to opt for furniture that isn’t too big for your space, to avoid having to squeeze through small spaces or tight corners.

If you’re living in a small home or apartment, try to remove any unnecessary seating, floor cushions and random side tables that might be obstructing walkways.

Make Use of Window Space

One of the best ways to freshen up your home is to bring more light into the living spaces.

Avoid putting any heavy pieces of furniture underneath your window sills or anything that will dramatically obstruct light from coming in.

Swapping those block out curtains for sheer, floor length curtains will help to brighten up your space.

Adding mirrors and framed photos to your walls will help reflect the natural light, making your home feel larger than it is.

Upgrade Your Shower Head

If there’s one action that can make your home feel as good as new, it’s upgrading the most used features. Upgrading key home accessories such as your kitchen taps and shower head to one, will improve your washing experience.

Swapping out your shower heads from the stock standard install to one with more pressure is an easy way to up the luxury in your bathroom.

Opting for a tap with better water efficiency could also help reduce your water bill.

Consider a Change in Lighting

Lighting in itself is something we use daily but give no real thought to. There are many ways you can improve how your lights look and operate throughout your home to reduce eye strain and add a bit of flair.

One option is to make the switch to LED lightbulbs. Not only are they more energy efficient and cost effective, but some also come with the dimming and colour toned technology.

Another alternative that will add extra fun to your home are Smart Globes. These lightbulbs can be controlled by an app on your smartphone, which gives you the ability to turn the lights on and off, from anywhere in your home.

Incorporating coloured lighting in your home can influence your mood, foster better health, and accentuate the architecture and design of your home (and make life more fun for the kids!).
