You are likely to spend a lot of time at home, so it would be nice if it wasn’t so dreary!. That’s why it would be great if you can change the vibe of your home: to make it more comfortable or interesting for you and your family to live there. 


Here, you will learn about a few simple tricks that can help change how your home feels to you. Change can be refreshing, calming, energizing, relaxing, or exciting. Who doesn’t want their home to make them feel happy, right?

Keep the Windows Open

Windows are often closed for one reason or another, but this only serves to make the house stuffier than it needs to be. As a result, it feels depressing, uncomfortable, and the opposite of cozy. To that end, unless there is an explicit reason to close the windows, you should keep them open




You can add extra protection through screens, curtains, or drapes. However, the important thing is to allow air to circulate in your home. This is very important because it makes your home feel less suffocating and more refreshing. When you close your windows, the odor from the furniture, the walls, the floors, and the people get mixed up.

Let Natural Light In

Natural light has a soothing effect on people that artificial light can’t seem to bring to the table. This is why letting the sunlight in as much as possible would be ideal. The idea to keep the window open as much as possible already accomplishes some of that. However, it would be great if you can add more to it.

You could also have open doors like a french door leading to the yard. Installing a skylight or two could work, as well. They don’t need to be anything especially big. What you need is to have enough of them to have natural light soak into your home as often as possible. 

Marie Kondo Your Home

That the Japanese home decluttering celebrity Marie Kondo became famous at all is both a good and a bad sign. It is good because it means that there are many who would like to have less cluttered homes. It’s bad because it means that there are many who do have cluttered homes.

As you might have already guessed, this is another way for you to change the vibe of your house. Anything that you don’t explicitly have a need for, must go. You can throw them out, donate them, or sell them if you want. 

Bring Nature Inside

Nothing can change the vibe of a home faster than plants and flowers. Even a single pot of succulents can add so much life to any room. Having them everywhere can certainly change things up for you. On that note, you should try not to go overboard.

A small pot here and there would be more than sufficient. You could also go with flower jars that you fill with fresh flowers on a regular basis. It’s unfortunate that this option can be wasteful, but the choice is yours. As to which plants you want to grow, this would be up to you.

Choose Your Colors

Bringing color to the home is a great way to add new life to a dreary place. This can be done in many ways, some of which are simple while others are not. The simple method involves bringing colorful pieces of furniture, curtains, drapes, dishware, and more.

Changing the picture frames or various home accessories to yellows and oranges would be impactful too. When you are ready to take it up a notch, hanging some colorful pieces of artwork can be effective. Giving the house a new coat of paint would be great, as well. 

Use Scents

Scents are a great way to make the house feel new and exciting. After sight, the smell can have the biggest impact on a person’s emotions. When you notice that your home’s smell has become pleasant, relaxing, enticing, or exciting, you can feel those things too.

You can achieve this part through a wide variety of products. There are air fresheners, of course, and there are also scented humidifiers. There are also scented candles that you can place in exquisitely carved glass candle jars. That last one can come with more smell and visual appeal. 

A Thorough Cleaning

Sometimes, what is causing the house to feel depressing is the fact that it is dirty. Dust, grime, molds, stains, and more can accumulate over months or years. When they do, they can lead you to feel like you are living in a place that’s unsuitable for humans. If this is the case, you can change this fact by giving your home one deep cleaning session.

This is where you scrub, wash, wipe, mop, or scrape every single inch of the home that you can reach. This includes the outside, as well, which can involve the gutters, the lawn, the gardens, and many others. The more you clean, the better you are going to feel about where you are living. By the time you’re done, you might not even recognize your home. 

Conclusion

Changing how your home feels to you does not need to be anything drastic. By adding stuff here and taking away stuff there, it can be enough. Flowerpots, open windows, new colors, and new scents are potent options. When you change the vibe of your home, you’ll suddenly feel like staying there more often. 


That is the whole point of the exercises featured here. They are meant to make you feel at home when you are staying in your place. They want to feel comfortable and cozy in their own rooms. A change in the house’s vibe might just help you accomplish that.
