Quick ways to spruce up your home

With most of us spending so much time at home these days, a lot of us are probably feeling pretty inspired to redecorate or change things up a bit. There is nothing quite like spending all of your time in the confines of your house to make you start thinking about moving a few things around. With all of us still trying to recover from the effects of the pandemic, money might be a bit too tight to allow for a full redecoration and we still need to embrace social distancing, so going to the store might not be a good idea anyway.

Below you will find a few top tips on how to quickly spruce up your home without spending any money at all.

Rearrange your living room

You and your family have probably spent a great deal of time in your living room reading or binge-watching TV over the past few months, so the space may well feel a little bit tired to you. The easiest way to spruce the space up is to rearrange the furniture. If you want to make your television more of a focal point, try and angle your couch and any additional seats in a way that makes every spot feel like the best spot in the room.

On the other hand, if you would like to draw attention away from the TV, position the seats around your coffee table to make that feel like the focal point. To make your space feel a bit cosier, bring blankets, pillows and any other soft textiles from other parts of the house in as décor.

Bring some of outside inside

Over the many months of quarantine, you have probably seen plenty of your social media friends adopt plant babies. This is for good reason – plants really can brighten up a space. If you have a garden or somewhere that you can collect a bunch of fresh flowers from, pick them and bring them into your home whenever you can. This will add a refreshing pop of color and make a beautiful addition to any space.

Shop your own storage

Oftentimes, we all have so much packed away in storage that we don’t even know what’s there. Take a look at your storage and ‘shop’ through it. You might just feel like you’ve hit the jackpot at luckycreek.com and have a few hidden treasures that you have forgotten about that might just be the missing piece of décor you need to add to your living space.

Play with the lights

Any room’s lighting plays a big role in the overall look and feel of the space. If a room’s main overhead light is too harsh, why not introduce some mood lighting using the lamps around your house? Play around with them in order to find what works best for each space. Perhaps all you actually need to move the lamp from your study into your lounge to create the perfect ambient feel – lighting can go a long way in either brightening up space or toning it down, depending on the look and feel you are going for.
