Do-It-Yourself Projects That Make You Feel Good.
The way your home looks and feels can effect the way you feel overall. Especially if you work from home it is important that your home makes you feel good. You will find yourself in a better mood and your family will surely thank you. Here are some tips to turn your home into an amazing place that you can really enjoy and be proud to call home!
Start by walking through your house and noting anything that you don’t really like or anything that really annoys you. You can do this with your spouse, however, in some cases it’s better to do it alone. If there is a portion of your home that could be more tailored to you, then look for the best way to tailor it. Remember that how you feel when you are at home is very important.
Enlarge your space. Once you have filled your space to the point where you have no room, there really is nowhere to turn. You have clutter. If you want to change this, you have 2 choices really. You can do some de-cluttering which is the inexpensive solution, or you can choose to do some remodelling to open up some more space.
You can make your home a fun place to be when you add recreational items like a pool or tennis court. These items can help you get some exercise and give you a way to spend quality time with your family. A fitness room is a good idea if you have space as it will provide some stress relief while maintaining your health. These additions can also increase the value of your home.
One simple way to make a quick but essential improvement in your house is to change your lighting fixtures. You will be surprised by how much of a difference more modern light fixtures can make. Another plus is that you can probably do it yourself and it won’t cost you much.
One of the things that was driving me crazy was the ceramic tile that came with the house when we bought it. It was just so dull and brought down the room.
It’s a big deal to tear out a ceramic tile floor. So rather than go through huge mess and expense that comes with pulling out the old ceramic floor, we decided to lay a beautiful laminate floor right over top. It was clean, quick and very inexpensive. You can find beautiful laminate flooring for very low cost and we able to find a contractor to do it very reasonably.
Think of ways to improve your home’s exterior. Add a lick of paint and some accents like patio planters to brighten up your home’s exterior. Another way to improve your exterior is re-thinking the landscaping.
You might enjoy an organic garden. If you have a green yard, you will feel happier. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, hire a professional so that you can still gain the benefits of a garden. Having a garden to tend to can make your mood better. You can grown flowers or vegetables depending on your preferences.
Another area that many people overlook is windows. Especially if you put in gardens and have a beautiful yard. Looking out of old windows can damper the scenery and your mood. So why not consider putting in new windows?
I hope that these tips can help you enjoy your home more. I know I experienced a great peace of mind and satisfaction after doing some of these things to my home. If you work from home like I do, it can really have a positive effect on your productivity and your family will probably feel it too even if they don’t say so, LOL.
