Need to avoid going stir crazy while social distancing? Upgrade your space!
Maybe you recently moved in, need to make some slight improvements to your space, or are doing some major renovations to your home. No matter your reason, the positive side of staying at home means you’ve got time to tackle the projects you’ve put on hold for so long. Here are five ideas to help you make the time go by quicker AND give your space an upgrade.
1. Add Indoor Plants to Your Home
Adding plants to your home can provide benefits to your body, mind, and home in ways that will significantly enhance your quality of life. They help you to breathe easier and have been proven to help decrease fatigue, colds, headaches, sore throats, and flu-like symptoms. Besides these health benefits, being in an environment with plants helps us to feel less stressed and encourages happier feelings with less stress and fatigue.
2. Reorganize Your Shelves
Looking at the same shelf set-up over time is bound to lead to boredom. Get creative and organize your shelves to elicit jealousy from all your Instagram friends. To ensure your shelves pop, choose a colour palette that works with your home aesthetic. From there, mix in accents in different materials to keep things interesting - think ceramic, velvet, glass, leather, matte, and shiny.
3. Create More Space
Looking for more space to hang your scarves, towels, or throws? A DIY ladder is a chic project that can add some style and function to your home. Follow these steps from I Spy DIY to make your own masterpiece.
4. Make Your Own Disinfectant
Natural ingredients have been proven to tackle germs. Try making your own safe and effective disinfecting spray cleaner that smells fresh and will help to get rid of any lingering germs. First, collect your ingredients. Try this concoction from Clean Mama. Once you’ve mixed the ingredients, simply spray, let it sit on surfaces for about 10 minutes and wipe away. Pro tip: Use separate cloths for separate areas of your home to avoid cross-contamination.
