4 Easy Ways to Tidy Up Your Home’s Interior
We’re all spending more time indoors nowadays. Whether you live in a one-bedroom apartment or in a five-bedroom two-story home, now’s the best time to revitalize your home’s interior. We’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks to help you turn your home’s interior into a more open, comfortable space. With just a bit of work, any space can go from crowded and uncomfortable to open and relaxing (and we can do with a bit more of that, especially during this time).
Organize Cluttered Spaces
Clutter is something that occurs almost without us realizing it but after weeks of piling clothes up on a rarely-used chair, you’ll start to notice the negative effects begin to creep into your subconscious mind. It’s true, sleeping or living in spaces that are cluttered and disorganized can cause us to become more anxious or feel uncomfortable, even if we don’t realize it. If there’s a long-neglected pile of clothes at the far end of your bedroom, then take an hour out of your day to put those clothes away. Putting on a podcast, movie, or YouTube video can make the time go faster.
If you don’t have enough room for all the clothes and clutter, then you can put some of it away in storage or even donate some of it. Remember, the goal here is to turn a cluttered space into an organized and open one; it’s not to move clutter into another room because that just pushes the problem under the proverbial rug instead of actually dealing with it head-on. This is also a great opportunity for you to switch out your winter clothes for your summer clothes. Not only will this clear up space in your closet, but you’ll also have more room for your clothes!
Now, clothes aren’t the only things that create clutter. Take a look around your home and note which spaces and objects are out of place or disorganized. Take some time to arrange or store things where they belong. Before long, your home will be more open and you’ll be amazed at the clean, fresh space that’s been there all along!
Rearrange an Entire Room
Let’s say your home’s already free from clutter but there’s something nagging at the back of your mind; a small, inkling idea that something just isn’t right. That, my friend, can be easily fixed by simply rearranging the furniture in a room. Although our Albuquerque location is currently closed due to COVID-19, you can easily reinvigorate your home by rearranging your existing furniture. Even if you’ve been used to the way your furniture’s been set up for years now, it’s always fun to try something new out. If you don’t like the new configuration, you can always go back to how it used to be! Take the kitchen and dining room, for instance. Why not turn the table 90 degrees and see how that works? Does that open up the space more?
Or what about your home office? If you’re working from home, you need a great home office where you can work without distractions but if you’re working in the spare bedroom that’s currently full of clutter, then you won’t be able to focus on your work. Even if your home office is already set up for you to work as efficiently as possible, why not consider moving the desk to the other wall? Or perhaps adding those old prints you have hidden in the garage? Adding a touch of personality and charm to any room can make it all the more comfortable.
Bring Some Light Into Your Life
One of the biggest issues with many interiors is the lack of light. Now, we’re not talking about lightbulbs, we’re referring to natural sunshine coming in through the windows. Try to make a habit of opening the blinds in the morning to let the sunshine in and you’ll immediately feel the positive effect sunlight can have on your home’s interior. Since we’re unable to leave our homes except for necessary tasks such as going to the grocery store or the doctor, now’s as good a time as any to welcome the sunlight into your home. Combine this with your workspace and you’ll feel bright and optimistic as you work throughout the day!
