Have you ever walked through a new build model home? Or watch a home reveal on TV? It’s splendid! I love walking through them because they are inspiring. It’s a combination of the clean, good smells, space, organization, fluffed pillows, kid spaces set up perfectly and no kids in sight to mess them up. It’s like a small vacation for me. And then, we go home. Back to reality. Back to closets with clothes in them. Well used kid spaces which mean messy. Couch pillows on the floor and squished because, in our homes, people actually sit on them. However, this doesn’t mean our homes can’t look and feel like a model home. In fact, it is possible and highly recommended.
Our homes should give us the same feeling we get when we walk through those homes. Why? Because we live in our homes, every day. It is not too much to ask that we feel inspired and happy in our home. Where do we start? Here are 3 ideas….
1. Organize your home
No, it’s not realistic to empty our drawers and closets like a model home, but we can simplify and organize. It’s a matter of letting go of some items and finding a specific home for others. Therefore, no more junk drawers, closets and please, no more junk rooms.
2.Make every part of your home nice
You can also picture that laundry room you loved in the model home. It was cute, decorated and not covered in un-contained supplies. Your laundry room can also look the same. Take some time to clean it up, get nice baskets to contain supplies and find some décor that inspires you to want to come in a do laundry. Hence, the chore of laundry doesn’t seem so bad.
3. Every Room Matters
Furthermore the mentality that every room matters is important. It will inspire you to find a purpose for every room in your home. Giving each room a purpose will make it usable. When a room is being used, you are more likely to decorate it.
Also, no matter the size, the age of your home, or budget you have, every home can be beautiful! It just takes some effort and a vision for what you want in a home. As a result, you can make your home beautiful!
