At Westminster Palms, we understand better than anyone that home is where the heart is. Living spaces are often an extension of our personality and they can have tangible effects on our overall mood and health. Over the past year, many of us have spent significantly more time indoors for safety reasons and our homes may be long overdue for a rehaul. Fortunately, it doesn’t need to take much time or money to freshen up your space! Continue reading to find our tips and tricks to breathe new life into your space.
Rearrange Your Furniture
It does not cost a single dime to rearrange your furniture, but the benefits it can have on your home atmosphere can be priceless. With just a little creativity and elbow grease, moving your furniture can be a quick and easy fix. Start by shifting items around or pulling from the less used areas of your home to breathe more life into new spaces. Be sure to only take on the items you can move comfortably – home redesign is not worth any injury!
Take Advantage of Crafts
If you have any prior experience with crafting at home, or if you have spent some time during this past year learning new tricks of the trade, a home refresh is the perfect opportunity to apply those talents! Woven knit tapestries, punch needle art, and more are all beautiful ways to inject even more of your personality into your space. If you lack experience crafting, use your redesign as motivation to practice something new!
Use Paint Creatively
Paint and painting accessories are relatively cheap to acquire. With a little time and creative effort, you can create your own hand-made paintings to hang on the walls of your home. Your walls will be grateful for a fresh face and your living space will be even more “you!” Start with smaller paintings using something sentimental as motivation before moving on to larger projects, if you so desire.
To find new additions to your home, shop secondhand and peruse the offerings at options like Goodwill or The Salvation Army. You can find a large selection of home goods – from statement centerpieces to classic home appliances – in these stores at a great value. Plus, consider bringing any of your own items that you have just sitting around and donate them to a good cause! For safer shopping options, browse through online vintage dealers such as Etsy to find more home décor.
Make a Statement with Your Couch
It is not always a feasible option to replace your couch, as it is often the largest and most expensive piece of furniture in a home. Instead, update your couch with some new accessories to really let it shine as the focal piece of your living room! Well-placed couch cushions and a nice throw can completely change the aesthetic of your couch at a cheap price.
Not only should your independent living space be an extension of you, but your community should accommodate you with luxurious amenities and spacious residences too. Whatever you love, it is within reach at Westminster Palms! Arts, culture, dining, natural beauty, stunning views – we’re in the heart of it all.
