Your home environment can impact how you feel and how you navigate your daily life. In fact, making home improvements can improve your mental health. However, it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to making your home better. We have outlined three simple steps that can help you to make your space feel that little bit more like home – read on to find out more.

Repaint it

If your home is beginning to look a little drab and tired, a fresh coat of paint is a wonderful way to update your home. Think carefully about your colour scheme before you repaint – don’t just choose the latest trends. Pick a colour that you love and that will stand the test of time, as you probably won’t be repainting for at least a couple of years. You should also think about the size of your rooms and the ambience you want to create. For example, a larger room can be made cosier by painting it in darker colours, or a small room can be given the illusion of space with a bright, light colour. Don’t forget the outside of your home as this can really cheer up your house. You can even do most of the painting yourself, and save yourself some pennies.

Clear your space out

It can be all too easy to allow your possessions to build up – we tend to fill the spaces we occupy. And it can be very hard to let go of sentimental items which are imbued with memories. However, this can lead to a very busy looking space that is not calming or attractive to the eye. For a quick way to improve your home, you can declutter any old or damaged items that are no longer used. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by visual clutter, selling or donating items can help to free up space and leave your home looking much improved.

Utilise self-storage

Is your space feeling cluttered but you don’t want to part with your precious possessions? Whether you have family heirlooms that must be held onto or large pieces of furniture that you can’t find a place for quite yet, you can utilise self-storage from Safestore. Here, you can keep your items safe and secure, and store them for however long you need, or visit them as many times as you want. Decluttering in this way keeps you from truly getting rid of your items, so you can keep them close without adding that “busy” look to your home.

Making your home better can have such a positive impact on your life. So taking any one of these simple steps is a great way to feel better and enjoy your space.
