Our home is our sanctuary, a place where we can unwind and recharge after a long day. Decorating plays an important role regarding how people feel about where they live. It should not only help make you happy to return home but provide a unique environment that’s completely your own. However, sometimes our homes can become outdated and because we’re living in it, don’t recognize when it’s time to change. Here are some telltale signs it’s time to revamp your space.
Too Much Clutter
Most people don’t decorate their homes all at once. Not only because it can be costly, but also because it takes time to find pieces that you think would fit perfectly into your space. Gradually adding in decor and furniture is helpful in creating a vision, but sometimes people don’t realize when to stop adding. It can be easy to get wrapped up in decorating so much that your home becomes cluttered and overwhelming! Clutter has been proven to contribute to stress and anxiety, something you don’t need when you’re in your home.
If you feel that your home is suffocated with items, furniture, or decor, it may be time for a cleanout. Going through every room and deciding what adds or detracts from the space is the first step in regaining order in each area. Dispose of, donate, or sell items that you don’t want anymore, and use organizer bins to put things away that you don’t need on hand. When you shop and redecorate in the future, be wary of things that might just create more clutter instead of enhancing your home.
According to a survey distributed from HomeGoods, 47% of Americans haven’t updated their home decor in the last five years, and nine percent haven’t in more than 10 years. Imagine all the changes that happen in your life even within a year, your personal aesthetic probably has shifted in this amount of time as well. Keeping the same furniture, colors, and decor around for years can make your home feel stagnant and stale.
This doesn’t mean you have to drain your bank account to replace every decor item in your home! There are many ways to upgrade your space to give it a completely new feel. A fresh coat of paint is an inexpensive way to provide a completely different feel in a room. Swapping out accents such as pillows, picture frames, and wall decor hangings can breathe new life into your home. Subtle changes will go a long way in transforming an area but will save the hassle of re-doing your whole home scheme.
Have you gone through any major changes within your home? Asking yourself if your home still fits your lifestyle and needs is important in deciding to decorate again or not. If you’ve had a partner move in, gotten a new pet, or have had a child, you may need to adjust your surroundings to be able to better fit your current life.
Because of budget or time constraints, people tend to put off redecorating. However, this can be damaging to your well-being as living in a space that doesn’t feel like “you” can take a toll. According to research published by Scientific American, your home can influence your sense of well-being, so ensuring it’s decorated in a way that makes you feel comfortable is the most important thing. Consider yourself and the people you live with when redecorating, as communication will help make sure everyone is going to benefit from the space.
With these signs, we hope it’ll become clearer when you need to redo a room or whole home. Not only will it update your space, but it may help your mental well-being to see a fresh home decorated. Establishing your personal tastes and quirks within the home is what will be able to really enhance it and make you happy to walk through the door after a day out.
