Here is the thing – for some reason people want one major thing out of their home. They want it to be comfortable and cozy. Now, this is understandable. After all, you do not want to sleep on rocks or have to battle your way through the bedroom each night. However, there is a downside to all that comfort – we grow accustomed to it.
All of a sudden our favorite home may feel a little bit dull. It is welcoming, nice and warm, but at the same time it does not excite us in the least bit. That is why today we are here to change that. Are you tired of being bored with your place? Let’s see what you can do about it!
Tip #1: Make It Smarter!
So your place feels boring and dull? Maybe even a bit dumb? Then just make it smarter! With a variety of smart speakers and devices on the market you really have no excuse. You should pick some and start using them regularly. Don’t have an idea how to do it? Or what to do with them? You can find plenty of enthusiasts online.
Tip #2: Paint Everything!
Okay, maybe not literally everything, but you get the point. Why would you want to stick to the same old colors over and over again? Heck, maybe paint a room in two different colors, or even three or four. Add accents, or maybe even splashes of paint.
There are so many things you can do with proper imagination that you will be surprised. Sometimes I look around my own home and thank that I did such a horrible job painting that it is actually a pretty good abstract piece now. I am telling you, it really works!
Tip #3: Stop Hoarding Stuff!
If you are like most Americans, chances are you have tons of stuff laying around that you do not really need. Do you know what to do with them? Sell them, throw them away, donate them or just make them a gift. Whatever, just get rid of them in any way possible.
Not only will this free up some space so you can breathe a little bit better, but it is proven that less clutter improves our mood. So what are you waiting for, start throwing things out!
Bonus Tip: Why Not Move?
There is no doubt that a great way to change how you feel about your home is to just move to a different place. Now, this may be a bit more challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. For example, you can get some plastic packing boxes and fill them with the things that matter. That way you will take our third tip into account as well, because you will be forced to sort through your items and figure out which are the useless ones!
