Six interior design ideas to liven the mood

Six interior design ideas to liven the mood

Have you been feeling down lately for what seems like no reason at all? Maybe all that’s needed to lighten your mood is a few home improvements around the house. The walls we surround ourselves with each day actually have a huge impact on our moods and emotional well-being so why not do a little interior design to boost your spirits? Here are six home improvement ideas you can try.

Keep it nice and clean

Nothing kills the mood like clutter. If you’ve got things lying about that you never use or hardly use, get rid of it. Start by throwing out things that are truly junk as that’s the easiest. Then turn your attention to those things that you say you’ll use someday even though you haven’t used them for years. If you can sell them, do and put that money towards the following five ideas.

Lighten up

Poor lighting is another mood-killer. Every home needs ambient and accent lighting. If all you have is a single overhead light, it’s time to invest in some lamps at varying heights to really layer the lighting and make the home more warm and inviting. LED lights, especially work wonders and they’re more energy efficient as well.

Bright colors

A splash of bright color can go a long way in brightening your mood. You don’t have to repaint your entire interior neon green (and you really shouldn’t) but you can choose a bright color you like and paint a single wall in a room that color to serve as an accent wall. If you don’t want to paint the walls, or if you’re renting and you can’t paint the walls, carefully select a few accessories like throw pillows that brighten up the space and make you feel happier.

Upgrade your furnishings

You don’t have to throw out all your furniture and replace it to upgrade. You can make old furniture new again by re-staining or re-upholstering it. There’s something about new-looking furnishings that makes people happier.

Get artsy

Maybe you need to create more positive, high energy vibes in your hope by incorporating some creative elements. If you’re artistic yourself, you can use the vast resource that is in the internet to get some ideas that you can then create yourself. If you don’t consider yourself artistic, you can invest in some nice artwork or some floral arrangements. Art doesn’t have to be a painting, it can be textured wall coverings, ornate rugs, or uniquely framed photographs as well.

Use fragrances

Whether you’re a believer in aromatherapy or not, there’s no denying that a pleasant fragrance can liven your mood. There’s a connection between our sense of smell and our emotions center in the brain so get some air freshener dispensers, essential oils, or some pleasant-smelling flowers and fill your home with them.
