With holiday decorations down and winter blues in full swing, your home might be feeling as bland as the bare trees outside. Here are a few options to bring your home back to life.
Bright coat of paint.
Since it’s not the best time of year to leave your windows open, we rarely think of painting the house during these months. But if your home features dark walls, the best way to brighten up the space is to give it a brighter shade. Painting is affordable, and if you use low- or no-VOC paint, you won’t have to worry about the smell or toxic chemicals in the air.
Knitted fabric is an easy way to make your home feel cozier in these cold months. Chunky knit blankets can be draped over the couch, and crochet wall art and plant hangers can be hung throughout.
Now that you’ve invested in some beautiful crochet hanging plant holders, you’ll need to try your hand at taking care of plants. They liven up your home and absorb the toxins in the air.
Change up the lighting.
It’s a small change, but if you’re still using fluorescent light bulbs, your world will change when you switch to LED. This change will save you money on your electricity bills, in addition to changing the way you look in the mirror and the way your home looks. No more ruddy yellow lighting. Clear, crisp light makes everything look better in the dark winter months.
