It doesn’t take much to make your house dull and boring. Often, it’s as simple as not making the time for a little bit of upkeep or ignoring some important maintenance tasks. So check out these four things that might be causing your home to look drab and uninteresting!
If your home lacks color, don’t be afraid to add some color through art and a few centerpieces like black frames for a minimalistic look. Plants are also a great way of adding life back into an otherwise bland space. And while it might be tempting to overfill shelves with knick-knacks, remember that less is more when it comes to making your home look incredible.
Do you find yourself struggling with your eyes in the morning? Or do they water after reading for a long time, due to poor lighting at home? Without proper lighting, it can feel like all hope is lost. However, it’s important to know that this problem doesn’t have to be permanent—you just need some new light bulbs!
One of the best ways to make your house feel more welcoming is with good natural lighting. If you don’t have many windows in your home, consider adding lamps or light fixtures. And if you’re looking for some quick inspiration on how to get started, just browse Pinterest!
The most important thing to remember when it comes to lighting is that you should place lamps on surfaces, not hung. You don’t want light fixtures hanging over walking paths.
Too Much or Few Furniture
It’s easy to get caught up in the idea of filling your home with furniture. After all, it seems like there’s always some new trend or style that you want to try. But before you buy any more pieces for your house, consider what you already have! What are the things that you use most often? Does your bedroom need a new bed or dresser? Do you need a desk in your office or some more seating for company over the holidays?
It’s also important to remember that less is always more when it comes to furniture. If you try filling up an empty room with things, it’ll just feel cluttered and uninviting. So instead of going out and buying new pieces, try rearranging the furniture you already have.
Lack of Maintenance
Just like pretty much anything else in life, your house needs regular attention and maintenance. Regularly clean the dirt and dust that accumulates on surfaces to keep allergens at bay. And when it comes time for deep cleaning, don’t forget to vacuum all of the carpets!
If you’re looking for some inspiration for caring for your house, just ask Siri or Alexa! They can give you some great tips on how to get started.
The hardest thing about cleaning is that it never seems like there’s anything left to do. Of course, the problem might be that you’re not sweeping hard enough! In that case, try running the broom bristles along floors and edges, and you’ll be surprised at how much dust and dirt you might have missed.
With these pointers, you can quickly identify why your home may feel dull. Next, try and follow the tips to uplift your homes, feel and look.
