How to Make the Most of Your Home with Subtle Changes

Without spending a lot of time and/or money.


It is no secret that we all have been cooped up in our homes or apartments. With sheltering in place, working remotely, and even learning from home, we have gained an appreciation for where we hang our hats. Our homes have become much more than where we sleep and eat. Thus, we need to make the most of our home space. How can we do it without spending a lot of time and/or money? You can really make a big difference in your home with these three easy tips.

Declutter and Organize

Many of us have made goals or New Year’s resolutions to do this in the past. However, when we are busy, most of us just put the extra whatever in the junk drawer or the extra box in the closet. Eventually, the closet is full or overflowing. Plus, the junk drawer has spread into junk drawers. By simply, decluttering you can make more of your home’s space. If you need inspiration and help in doing this, you may want to check out Marie Kondo’s tips. She explains how if something isn’t bringing you joy anymore, get rid of it. That’s a really simple rule to follow. In fact, by decluttering your home, you can donate items that you no longer need. So, it’s a win-win. 

Divide the Space Wisely

Regardless of the size of your place, everyone needs their independence and “Me Time.” Because not all of us can afford to upgrade our homes or move into a NDIS housing providers, you may have to think outside of the box when it comes to finding that “me time.” One of the best ways to make more of your space is by utilizing dividers. You can use bookcases, curtains, or screens to separate a room into sections for work, play, and other.  

Peel and Stick Inspiration

If you are looking for a quick, easy, and low-risk change to your home, look no further than peel and stick wallpaper. This isn’t your grandmother’s old-fashioned wallpaper. Now, there are inspirational quotes or song lyrics to peel and stick to your living room or office wall. This is a great way to make a subtle home decor change while giving everyone a dose of happiness or inspiration. This technique is especially great for children’s rooms. Once they grow out of the quote, song lyric, or design, you can just peel it right off.

Over the last year, our priorities have shifted. Being forced to stay at home, we have reflected on what’s truly important. First and foremost, our health is paramount. Secondly, home is so much more than an address. It is your sanctuary and safe place. As we will continue to adapt to this new normal way of life, it is important to make the most of your home. By following the above steps, you should be able to do it over a weekend. None of the options take much effort, time, nor money.
