Sprucing Up Your Home
Adding Fresh Scents
One way to work towards sprucing up your home is by adding fresh scents. Our senses impact us heavily, and scents, specifically, can have a major impact on a person’s mood, feelings, stress, and cognitive performance. A scent can set the mood of a room before a person even walks in. This is important because the vibes of a home are just as important as the looks.
When trying to achieve a warm and cozy environment, introducing warm scents, like vanilla and cinnamon, are sure to transform your space into one that is welcoming and relaxing to potential buyers. Placing candles, Scentys, oil diffusers, or other aromatic tools in your home can largely impact how potential buyers or guests feel.
With this being said, you can select and combine scents to customize the feel of your home. If you are looking for a more signature or put-together feel, consider using a consistent scent you love all around the house!
Creating a Minimalist Feel
Another trend that is on the rise when it comes to sprucing up your home is the minimalist trend. Studies have shown that many millennials in 2021 have been gravitating towards minimalist homes. The definition of a minimalist home is a space that feels just right, it is not too cluttered but yet not too bare. A minimalist home feels open and free and is attractive to many homebuyers because the home feels inviting, appears cleaner and more organized, and seems more put together.
To create a minimalist feel, it is important to start with decluttering and getting rid of things you don’t love or need. Focus on increasing the functionality and storage space of areas that are frequented daily. For example, add organizing shelves or drawers to your laundry room, or even utilize functional furniture like storage ottomans and under-the-bed containers. It is important to remember that one of the keys to achieving a minimalist home is by increasing the perceived amount of open space. This creates a relaxing retreat, where one can feel at peace and stress-free.
Once your space has been pared down, the addition of flowers or plants, decorative pillows, and throw blankets can personalize minimalist spaces. These items bring beauty and function into the quieted space, allowing for the personalization of a minimalist area.
Not only will flowers look nice, but they will also elevate the mood of the home while providing fresh scents. Throw blankets can be used to coordinate the colors of the room while offering comfort and warmth. Decorative pillows allow you to take up space in a soft and functional way while adding a pop of personality with whichever hue, design, or fabric you choose.
Utilizing Natural Lighting Within The House
Natural lighting in open and airy spaces is often a breath of fresh air, making spaces feel brighter, larger, and warmer. To utilize natural lighting in your home, try opening curtains or blinds throughout the day to allow the sunlight to seep into your home. In addition to having increased natural light, you’ll also likely feel your serotonin boost and your energy and mood improve.
Sunshine is good for the soul and helps keep our homes happy! Turn a dreary home into an inviting home with minimal stress and money by incorporating sunlight. By incorporating scents, embracing minimalism, and taking advantage of natural light, you will be well on your way to sprucing up your home!
