They say that home is where the heart is, but some of us just don’t see how. After a long hard day, the only place we feel we should be is our home. For more reasons than we could care to count, the home is the foundation upon which society depends for its tomorrow. After all, the year is still young, and it is not too late to apply some fresh ideas that will breathe an aura of creativity into your home. It gets monotonous when you walk into your home, and everything is just as it was ten years ago. Change being the only constant thing in this world; it is time to implement it. The best part is that you don’t have to spend money to improve your home.
Top home improvement tips
Improving your home has never been so easy and so enjoyable at the same time. It all boils down to the ideas you choose to employ after all is said and done. I will let you in on some secrets that have never failed and are easy in your pocket. These are;
Mom knows best
Seek ideas from your mom, aunties or even girlfriends. When you combine all their ideas together, you will eventually come up with something that no one has seen or heard of before.
Plan furniture placement
Assess the space in your living room first and then begin relocating your furniture to different areas. You will feel like you have just bought a new home.
Try new colors
A new paint on your walls will make a huge difference in your home’s appearance. Make sure they don’t clash with the color on your furniture and give your home an awkward, horrendous feel.
Start with your entrance
Try trimming and pruning those overgrown hedges that have been making it hard for you to find your way to the door.
Introduce a new set of rules
Every decent home must have a set of rules that will get rid of every horrid habit that makes the house unbearable. Besides, these rules will help your kids (if you have any) grow into mature and responsible people in society. For example;
- No playing and running around the house. Make your kids understand that all games should be taken outside in the backyard, where it is much safer.
- No leaving shoes lying around in the hallway. All shoes belong inside the closet including yours, lead by example.
- All dirty clothes should go to the laundry basket. They should not be left strewn all over the bedrooms or worse
still, the living room.
- All meals, which includes the snacks, should be eaten at the dining table. This will avoid spillages of any kind on your couch and carpet. This rule will make it easier for you to clean up after their mess.
The house can be heaven on earth once you take control and be in charge of your space.
