Moving into a new house is only the beginning when it comes to creating a space that truly feels like home. Putting a little effort into getting the details right and keeping your space organized can go a long way toward turning an average house into a peaceful oasis. Here are three tips for transforming your home into a place you and your family love to spend time!
Create a unified color scheme
Choosing each piece of furniture or home decor in the color you like best may be your first instinct, but not having a larger goal can make your home look more hectic and disconnected as you add items. Instead, choose one or two colors for each room, preferably at least one neutral, that complement one another nicely and make your space look calm and put together. Lighter colors and simple designs tend to work better than dark or bright shades and loud prints.
Add some greenery
Plants can bring a bit of the peaceful beauty of nature indoors. Whether you want to create a tropical oasis by filling your home with brightly colored flowers, set a few small cacti or other succulents on your desk or a window sill, or hang a leafy plant in your kitchen, plants can add natural beauty to any space.
Choose finishing touches that create peaceful ambiance
The overall feel of your space goes beyond the physical things in the room and how well they are organized. Playing relaxing music or nature sounds, using lightly scented air fresheners or candles and opening the window to let fresh air fill your home on nice days can go a long way toward making your home feel serene and welcoming.
