Top Redecorating Steps to Help You Through Quarantine
We’re all stuck at home which means it is a great time to finally have the home that you have always dreamed of. Redecorating can easily be done by ordering a few key supplies online and having them delivered to you. It will give you a project you can see tangible results for, and keep you occupied during your down time.
What’s more, it will also help you feel like you have a new space to sit and enjoy, instead of being cooped up in the same old rooms.
If you have issues with your home, or even just a room in your home, tackle them today by following these steps:
De-Clutter and Deep Clean
If you want to redecorate then the first thing you will want to do is get rid of everything you don’t use often or don’t absolutely love. That old gift your aunt gave you that you promptly dumped to the back of your closet? Get rid of it. Things that you hide away because you feel bad about getting rid of should be the first to go.
Doing this will free up your space, make it feel roomier, and of course make it easier to redecorate.
Repaint the Walls
Unless your walls are already perfect, consider repainting them. Add an accent wall, refresh the paint job on your white walls, or even add wallpaper. Redecorating the walls is a good project, leaves your home feeling fresh, and if you want a new look it will have one of the biggest impacts.
Focus on Your Bed
If you want a worthwhile project to invest in look no further than your bed. You can do easy updates, like repainting the bed frame, or you can go all out and invest in a new mattress – a mattress better for the planet and for you. If you don’t get good night’s rests and often feel like your back is knotted and in pain, this should take priority over everything else. You need a good night’s rest to help stay healthy (being fatigued lowers your immune system) and energetic through the day.
When it comes to improving your quality of life in quarantine or self-isolation, your quality of sleep is #1.
Create Art for Your Wall
Though you can absolutely buy prints and frames to decorate your walls, it is far more satisfying to try to make items yourself. If you aren’t that artistic, try to stick with geometric or other simple designs. Don’t feel bad about copying, either. Creating your own art for your own walls is a personal project that is fun, creative, and a great way to occupy your time at home.
You can use what you have at home or order some supplies. If you need inspiration, just look online! Follow a Bob Ross tutorial or be completely original the choice is yours.
Become a Plant Parent
Another great way to decorate your home and enjoy a new hobby is by becoming a plant parent. You can order plants online. Small babies are often very budget friendly and will grow big over time, or you can simply buy seeds, dirt, and pots to start growing your own flowers or vegetables.
