Have you fallen out of love with your home?
There are dozens of reasons why this might have happened. Perhaps when you moved in, there were things you wanted to change to make you happier with it. But even after those changes have been made, it still doesn’t feel quite right. Maybe you’ve lived in your home for quite a while, and so some of the charm has worn off. Or maybe over time, you’ve invested less of your time in the place. Perhaps your colour schemes are so 2010, and your furniture has seen much better days!
As you can see, the reasons are many. Happily, the solutions are many also, and you’re now in the right place to discover the best of them!
Ask yourself if you are (a) making the most of the space currently available to you and (b) are there solutions for adding more space if you want it!? For point (a), perhaps you have a spare bedroom that is jammed with junk, washing piles and empty boxes? Spend a weekend totally gutting it, and start again. This simply isn’t a good enough use of an entire room! Once it’s cleared out, you can turn it into something really valuable. If you don’t have a space in your home where you can close the door and relax, voila! Turn it into this! It can be your own private adult fort. You shouldn’t ever feel like you have to not be at home in order to have a nice time. Your home should be your happy, safe and secure place. It’s up to you to make it feel like this if it doesn’t already.
For point (b), and the issue of adding more space if you need it? A conservatory is a fantastic way to do this. Companies like Poplar Home Improvements know all about the value and benefit of adding an extension like this. Alternatively, does your home have an attic, basement or garage that you can transform? You don’t want to always be feeling like you are tripping over other people in your home. Something as small as adding one more living space to your home can genuinely make all the difference in the world.
Last but not least, does your home exude your personality? If you love music and light and colour, but live in a white ‘showhome’ style home? Then, of course, you’re not going to love it! Throw away the rulebook, roll up your sleeves and get to work making your home what you want it to be. Those home and garden guides, blogs and magazines should provide inspiration. Not rules you must live by, or else! Add a splash of your favourite colour to a feature wall in the kitchen. Hang artwork that makes your heart sing in the hallway. Replace those old and dusty photo frames with new ones, and more up-to-date photographs of happy memories and loved ones. You’ll soon start to see your home in a whole new light, and then the falling in love can begin all over again! Hurrah!
