As we all adhere to quarantine guidance and spend more time at home, now is the perfect time to transform your living environment. Whether you’re living alone, with a partner or with a growing family, you can revolutionize your abode simply, safely and swiftly. For inspiration, take a look at these top techniques for enhancing your home during quarantine…
Exploring your creative side is a great way to relieve stress and achieve something constructive while you’re stuck indoors, and it has the added benefit of transforming your home too. Take a look around your house or apartment and inject some creativity into empty, dull or neglected areas. A picture wall creates a stunning visual but it’s also a fabulous reminder of your favorite people and places. Alternatively, give your home a makeover by switching art, mirrors, and pictures from one location to another.
Streamline your life
We tend to accumulate a lot of clutter over the years but, with lots of free time on your hands, you can get to work decluttering your home. Start small and focus on one room at a time and you’ll soon see results. Bag and box things you want to throw out, donate or sell and find permanent storage solutions for your keepsakes. As well as making your home look great, decluttering your environment brings a renewed sense of peace and tranquility to your life.
There’s no better feeling than when your home’s sparkling and you can relax in a clean and tidy environment. With extra time on your hands, you can commit to more than just a surface clean and undertake a thorough, deep clean in every room.
Cleaning carpets and rugs is a great place to start and will have maximum visual impact when the job’s complete. While professional services, like Massey’s Chem-Dry, are guaranteed to achieve spectacular results, there are some at-home tips you can use while lockdown regulations are in place. If in doubt, contact manufacturers and find the best cleaning methods for your carpets, rugs, upholstery, and furnishings.
Get back to nature
Being cooped up indoors can leave you feeling uninspired, so why not get back to nature and incorporate some greenery into your interior design? It’s a lot easier to do than you might think. For example, if you have a garden or yard, take a look at which plants could thrive indoors. A simple cutting may be enough for you to begin growing a selection of new plants, which you can pot and place indoors. Alternatively, pick flowers in from your garden and arrange them in a vase to create a beautiful, natural centerpiece.
Taking Care of Yourself Amid Lockdown
Rejuvenating your home is a great way to practice self-care during lockdown. As well as keeping your mind active, cleaning, tidying and decluttering will keep you physically busy too. With stress-relieving and health-enhancing benefits on offer, putting your energy into transforming you home is the perfect way to take care of yourself and others during lockdown.
