Simple ways to be happier with your home

By Andrew Bell

Let’s face it: There’s plenty to be concerned with in the world today, but that makes it all the more important to ensure you’re happy, comfortable and healthy in your own home. For some, that might be a tall order, but it’s something that should be easy to work on.

In fact, with just a few simple changes to your living space, you can considerably improve your opinion of your home. Here are a few suggestions to do just that:

Be more proactive about cleaning and organising

While doing your household chores probably isn’t anyone’s idea of fun, it may just help you feel better about your entire home. According to Apartment Therapy, the reason why is simple: A cluttered, messy home is easy to look down on, but if you put in the work to keep living spaces tidy, the bed made, dishes out of the sink and so on, you can really take pride in the effort. That, in turn, helps you appreciate just how nice your home can be.

Put out more items with sentimental value

Many people like to display art throughout their homes, but you might not leave out as many items or photos that have real sentimental value. Making this simple change — such as putting up more pictures of your kids when they were babies — gives you a pleasant memory to think about no matter where you’re sitting.

Bring in more plants

You may not think much about it, but if you don’t have plants placed strategically throughout your home, you’re missing out on an easy opportunity to beautify your living space (and purify the air), Reader’s Digest noted. Studies have shown that a home with well-maintained plants keeps its occupants happier. It’s just a slice of nature no matter how small living in your home, and a healthy plant can be a great source of pride.

Add lighting

Any time your home is somewhat dark, you’re not going to feel as good about it as when it’s well-lit and bright. For that reason, you might want to add more lamps and, during the daytime, open the blinds so that you’re getting as much light as possible.

If you’re thinking about selling your home in the near future, it’s a good idea to work closely with a real estate professional. At Ray White Surfers Paradise, we can guide you through that process with ease, so get in touch today to learn more.
