After a year since the COVID-19 outbreak, many parts of the world are still suffering from the unpredictable pandemic. Along with masks becoming a permanent part of our everyday attire, working from home is another thing most professionals had to quickly adapt.
Are you tired of spending most of your time indoors? Working as well as spending your spare time indoors can get boring and demotivating. But don’t lose your hope yet!
In this post, we are sharing some easy ways you can give your home a makeover and make it a zen space. Take a look.
- Create a Cosy Nook
Since you’re working from home, it can become difficult to unwind after the day is over. Create a cosy nook in your bedroom or any corner of your house and use this space to meditate, read, listen to music, or anything that helps you relax. Retreating to this comfy corner will help you alleviate stress.
- Invest in High-Quality Sheets
You probably haven’t given much thought to your bedding, but it significantly influences your quality of sleep. Moreover, good quality bed sheets are also necessary for healthy hair and skin. So instead of buying the cheapest option, don’t hold back from splurging on luxurious bedding.
- Eliminate Clutter
A cluttered space can make you feel overwhelmed and stressed. Make it a habit to immediately keep everything away after you’re done using them. An easy way to ensure you don’t end up with a pile of clutter is having adequate and designated storage space for all your belongings.
- Install Smart Lights
Are you bored with your bedroom decor? If you’re not up for a massive change, you can easily transform your bedroom with smart lights. Smart LED light strips made popular by TikTok, offer a fun way to add pizzazz to your room.
Adding new lighting fixtures and staying home most of the time will likely increase your electricity bills. It would be best to compare electricity plans and switch to a competitively-priced one.
- Drape a Plush Blanket
There is nothing cosier than curling up on the sofa with a glass of wine and a movie. Make your couch extra comfortable with a plush blanket. You can simply drape it on one side for a simple yet chic style element.
- Add Greenery
Bring the outdoors inside with potted indoor plants. In addition to a pop of colour, plants are a wonderful way to make any space feel and look fresh. You can even hang up plants by any window for a charming touch. Bathrooms are also a great spot for plants.
- No-Tech Zone
If you have a television in your bedroom, you might want to consider removing it. Having a TV in your bedroom can disrupt your sleep cycle. Moreover, you should also avoid using your phone before bed. Make your bedroom a no-tech zone for better sleep.
- Keep Bedroom Neutral
From bright wall paint to vibrant wallpapers, keep fun patterns limited to your living room, kitchen, and areas other than the bedroom. Ideally, you should stick to a neutral palette when decorating your bedroom.
- Keep Work Separate
In winter, it can seem impossible to get out of your warm bed to start work. But don’t give in to the temptation to work on your bed, as this can impact your productivity as well as the quality of sleep.
- Make It Smell Great
Get aroma diffusers and scented candles to ensure your home smells fantastic at all times.
Changing up your home interiors can do wonders for your productivity and overall mood. There is no question that these trying times have taken a toll on everyone. Hopefully, giving your home a fresh look is an exciting thing you can do!
