Making Your Living Space Wow!
It’s pretty important that our homes are pleasant environments to be in, as this helps us relax and decompress from the stresses of the outside world. But how well does your home do this? Is it as pleasant as it could be, or does it need a little extra something to get there? If so, keep reading for some tips that can help you raise the level of your living environment from OK to Wow!
First of all, one way that you can raise the standard for your living environment is to look at the lighting situation. Most people don’t put too much thought into the light in their homes. Apart from turning the one’s that are already there on and off and opening and shutting the curtains. But this is a big mistake because, with a little extra thought and care, the light in your home can make a massive difference.
For example, are you just going with the light fixtures and fitting that we were in the house when you moved in? Or have you considered replacing them with one that you have chosen yourself?
You can get all sorts of lights these days, and they can be used to create specific moods in a room. You can use long pendant lights to add interest to a boring dark corner. Or you can use smart lights with colors to have the flexibility of changing the lighting along with your mood.
Another important aspect of raising the standard of your living accommodation is keeping it clean and tidy. You can live in a palace, but if it is a mess, then you’re not going to enjoy it very much.
Different people have different ways of dealing with keeping their homes clean and tidy. Some folk uses the KonMari method. Others have a cleaning schedule that shows them what to clean every day, week, and month. Still, others use cleaning services like Domestic One to help them out.
Think carefully before you make a choice on how you will keep your home clean. Remember, if you are working full time, having a system or someone to help you can make all the difference.
Another aspect of having a pleasant home is that you are able to keep your living area at the right temperature. Of course, this has a lot to do with how old the house is, how it was built, and whereabouts in the world you live.
Homes in colder countries like Sweden are built and designed to retain the maximum amount of heat, even when the snow is falling outside. Although a lot more new homes around the world are being built to a more energy efficient standard. But if you want some extra flexibility in heating and cooling your place, you might choose to use underfloor heating.
This is when pipes are installed under the flooring. They heat the room from the bottom up and provide a wonderful ambient heat in the floor. Perfect for when you wander into the kitchen barefooted in the middle of the night to make a snack or get a glass of water.
