Our Tips for Making Your Home a Better Place to Live

Invest In Some Plants

One of the absolute best things you can do for any space that you spend time in is to bring some of the outdoors inside. We know what some of you are thinking–“I don’t have what it takes to keep a plant alive!” We would beg to differ. You don’t have to rush out and get the most exotic and expensive plant out there to enjoy what they have to offer.

Instead, a trip to your local home center or florist will get you started off on the right foot. A simple succulent requires a decent amount of light and very little water to survive. As a matter of fact, most succulents thrive when they’re deprived of water, so the less you water them, the better off they will be. If you want to go in another direction, grab a bamboo plant. They are the exact opposite in that all you have to do to keep them happy and healthy is keep their water topped off. As long as they have access to light and water, they will thrive for many years to come.

Of course you could also simply add flowers to your living space on a weekly basis. When you head out to get groceries, simply pick up a bouquet of flowers. In many instances, you can find something that suits your living space for under $10. Simply throw them in your favorite vase with a bit of water and they ought to last you until you can make it to the store to pick up some more.

Whichever direction you go, trust us when we say that having a few plants in your home will help the space to feel more grounded and comfortable while also adding some visual appeal.

Decorate Your Coffee Table

And speaking of visual appeal, have you considered how your coffee table looks lately? If you’re anything like most people, it might have a coffee cup, a recent magazine or newspaper, and your keys on it at any given moment. We’ll get this out of the way here out the outset–there’s nothing wrong with that. You’re allowed to use a coffee table as a utilitarian item in your home. That’s what they’re for! When it comes to making your house feel a little bit cozier, however, putting some extra time and thought into the little things can make a massive difference.

Our recommendation is to add some coffee table books. It’s not exactly the most original thing a person could do to their coffee table, but the truth of the matter is that it can completely transform the way that your home looks.

What type of coffee table book should you choose, you ask? That’s a great question, and the good news is that there’s no wrong answer. Do you love photography? Display the collected works of a few of your favorite photographers. Are you a big music fan? The biography of a beloved musician will get the job done. Just like the way a particular coffee table book looks? That’s perfectly fine as well! It’s your home, so displaying something personal, or something that you find visually appealing, will always be a smart decision.

Hang Some Photos

If your home isn’t feeling particularly home-y, perhaps it’s because you don’t have enough personal touches throughout. One of the easiest ways to give it a more personal feeling is to decorate it with things that are important to you, and perhaps the best way to do that is with photos.

In this day and age, pretty much everyone has several photo albums’ worth of photos right in the comfort of their own pockets. We are, of course, talking about the introduction of smartphones which have made it easy for people to take high quality pictures more easily than ever before. In the past, people decorated their homes with professional family photos, but those days are over. (That’s not to say that you can’t do that, however!)

All we’re saying is that the beautiful trip you took from your visit to Maine last year? The selfie you took with your spouse at the Christmas party? The super cute picture of your family’s beloved dog? You can have those printed out and framed, easily adding a person touch to any home. At the end of the day, photos are as unique as it gets, so why not take the opportunity to print out some of your favorites?
