It is February and love is in the air! There is a lot to appreciate and share this season. From spending time out with family and friends to working on an interior project with a spouse, it is a great time to show those closest to you how much you care for them. It is also just as important to share that same love for yourself and for your home. Check out some helpful tips on how to make your home a place where you love to live.
- Reorganize into Relief
After living in a home for an extended period, it is a good idea to revisit those older rooms that have lost their spark. An easy way to bring new life to a room is to rearrange and reorganize existing fixtures to change the atmosphere of a space. There are a lot of options when it comes to reorganizing; whether it be clearing out a furniture filled and cluttered room or ushering in new ideas to a space that feels too minimal. It is a good idea to look at accents and common themes throughout a home when reorganizing to better fit the overall style goal of your home.
2. Adore your Accents
When establishing the style of your home it is a great idea to consider the little things. Small well-placed accents in a home can be a great way to add emphasis to your larger fixtures. An example would be to add a Kohler moxie shower head with blue tooth speaker and set a jazz playlist when having guests over. Having this paired with low lighting or a candle will set a scene and enable a heightened experience.
Modernizing a certain part of your home can be a great way to entertain guests and keep your home feeling new and exciting. Adding new technology to a preexisting area can help bring that spark back to a space. For example, the ANTHEM™ valve controls by Kohler can bring a brand-new experience to any shower. This new piece of digital control allows you access up to six shower heads all in one quality designed waterproof touch pad. When installed in a master bath this revolutionary technology makes your morning and afternoon routine something to love and look forward to.
3. Light Up Your Life
Lighting is key in making a space your own! It is important to choose between accent, task, or ambient lighting depending on how your home is staged. Ambient is best used for a space where lighting is intended to fill up a room in its entirety, such as a main hall or an entry way. Task lighting requires a specific light that should be used for rooms that involve tasks such as online meetings, reading or cooking, a lamp or pendant lighting is usually the most decorative way to achieve this atmosphere. Accent lighting, which has become increasingly popular, is the use of back lighting to give certain motifs or décor the accentuation they deserve. Keep in mind when choosing between the three types of lighting is that utilizing at least three lighting sources in a room will make that space seem more spacious and inviting.
4. Support Your Hobbies
Sectioning off your home to accommodate your everyday activities is a great way to personalize your space. Do you do yoga? Are you working from home? Do you entertain often? These activities can all be zoned to make the most of your space and live comfortably. Use your accents, furniture, and fixtures to support the things you love to do in your home.
5. Your Own Slice of Paradise
The most important thing to loving where you live is to make it a reflection of who you are. Making concrete decisions for your home is a great way to embrace your style of living and yourself. Look up trends, or even take inspiration from existing designs that your favorite brands offer and make them your own. Take pride in your own unique style and what makes you most comfortable. Love where you live!
