Most people can relate to the feeling of having spent more time in their home than they intended over the course of the coronavirus pandemic. For some people, this has actually ended up being a positive experience that has given them a fresh perspective on how they want to live. Others, however, have had less success and have found that the time has negatively altered their perception of their home.

That’s okay, over-familiarity can lead you to develop this kind of mentality, and it’s nothing that can’t be undone; it just means that you might have to take the time to redo your interior design. It’s easy to view this as a chore, but you might find that seeing it as a personal project can help to make it more fun.

A Taste of Nature

Regardless of how much time you normally spend outside, being forced to stay inside is never fun. In fact, this might make you realise just how much you’ve missed about the outside world, and that, in turn, might prompt you to include some elements of it into your home. This might sound stranger than it, in fact, is, and you’re likely aware of how common a staple house plants are in many homes. Though, you might be surprised to learn of the mental health benefits that they can hold.

It doesn’t just have to be house plants, however, and you might find that flowers add a more decorative approach that adds a variety of colour and texture to your home. In this case, outlets, such as might be a good place for you to start.

A Different Style Overall

Depending on how fatigued you are of your home at the moment, the level of overhaul that you want to commit to might well vary. However, if you are finding that you find yourself on the more extreme end of this spectrum, you might want to change the style of your interior design completely. For example, if you were once someone who thought that a minimalist, modern style suited your home, you might decide that recent events have pushed you in a more bohemian direction.

There are many styles out there, and some research can help you to discern what you like and what you don’t. You can mix and match too. There’s no need to stick to just one.

Making Use of Natural Light

Being inside for a long period of time can make you appreciate natural light and the effect that it can have on you. While you might find that there isn’t much that you can do in regards to how much natural light is finding its way into your home, you might find that you can alter certain aspects of your home in order to make the most of it. For example, light-coloured walls and furniture can help to reflect the light around the room, as can craftily placed mirrors. The latter of which can also go a long way to help the room look a whole lot bigger when placed correctly.

There's nothing better than a weekend spent at a spa and total relaxation and happy thoughts is a way of life to me. It's lucky I love cats really with a name like mine! Happily married with my three fur babies to keep us company.
