What gift do you want to give yourself this year? Have you considered furniture? Not only can it makeover your home so that you actually want guests to see it, but it can improve your mood and even your productivity.
Some studies suggest we spend as much as 90% of our time indoors, so creating a nice spot inside our homes can make quite a bit of our life more comfortable.
Your home and office are not spaces where you want to scrimp and “make do.” At this time of year, you are probably already decorating and cleaning up in anticipation of guests – why not do something nice for yourself, then, and add a few pieces that will make you smile?
Furniture Can Transform Your Home for the Holidays
If you’re looking for ways to make your environment sparkle, consider these tips:
1) Consider a good desk and ergonomic office chair if you work from home.
Doing schoolwork at the kitchen table may have been fine when you were a child, but having a professional work space sends the message that you take your work seriously and are expecting success. Ergonomic office furniture can also help prevent some common office problems – such as backaches.
2) Buy a few extra chairs and tables.
You can pop them in your kitchen area or off to the side of your dining room, but having a few extra spaces to sit is always important at this time of year. After all, you want to be ready in case some extra guests pop by. Consider a tall bar table and stools – they can easily be placed in a hallway or off to the side during the rest of the year. If you may have guests spending the night, this is also a great time of year to invest in some extra bedding and linens – just in case.
3) Invest in some art for your walls.
Not only does art show off your impeccable sense of style, but it can really round off a room and make it look spectacular. You don’t have to be able to afford masterpieces, either. There are many stunning prints and pieces you can buy that are actually quite affordable.
4) Look for some décor items.
Whether it’s a coffee table that looks like a work of art, a sculpture, or that stunning rug, investing in new pieces for your home allows you to start enjoying your environment again. A few new items can also completely transform your living space and make you actually enjoy your house again.
5) Try a fresh coat of paint.
Not only will it cover up the scuffs and other marks on the wall, but a fresh coat of paint will instantly make your home look like new again. If you are traveling at this time of year, it’s even more perfect – the paint will be dry and the new-paint smell will be gone by the time you get back.
