Bringing more joy when decorating your home

Bringing more joy when decorating your home

Having a home that is beautifully decorated doesn’t always mean it makes you happy. But it is the place where you spend the majority of your time. Decorating to bring yourself joy is a new trend we are seeing this year, and it ends up making for much brighter, happier spaces. One of which is the home of Heather and Mike Riordan.

Making a cheerful home

The Riordans wanted to have a home that felt like bright and cheery, so they bought a house that had a bright and open floor plan with large windows that filled the home with light and a safe street for raising children. Then, they started making changes. They made sure all materials were bright and child proof. They made sure it was all easy to care for. The home’s rooms were repurposed into spaces that made more sense to them as opposed to traditional uses. They changed the sitting room into an office and the dining room into a playroom. Brightly colored rugs brighten up the rooms, and glass panels separate the dining and sitting rooms allowing light and privacy.

Your joyful home

If you are looking to brighten up your home and make it work well for your family, there are some things you can do to follow the Riodoran’s lead. Here are some ideas to consider:

  • Repurpose unused rooms: If you have rooms you aren’t using for the intended purpose, why not repurpose it into a space that makes more sense for you? Turn it into a homework room, a library, a playroom, an extra guest room, etc.
  • Add more light: Adding more natural light to your home definitely makes it feel more cheerful. Put in larger windows, or find ways to get that light to naturally reflect in the space. Light tones and materials will allow it to reflect, and glass doors let it echo throughout the home. Light colored baseboard heater covers help go with this look and make it look more modern.
  • Bright accents: Pick accents to go throughout the home that are bright and cheerful. When picking your room colors, always start with the rug. You can easily match colors to a rug, but you can’t always find a rug that matches your current colors. Once you have the rug, you can branch out from there to pick paint colors and accent pieces throughout the room.
  • Choose stain-resistant furniture: When picking your furniture pieces, remember that children will spill where they aren’t supposed to. Pick pieces that can be easily cleaned and won’t stain.
  • Retreats for everyone: Everyone needs their own space where they can be entertained and enjoy themselves. Add a playroom for the children, a man cave for the man, a special retreat for the mom, or a game room for the teenagers. Let everyone have one space they can decorate on their own and put together for their own needs to give themselves a beautiful retreat.
  • Guest spaces: If you have a lot of guests or just want to make a space for guests when they do come, make sure you have a space decorated comfortable for them.
