Are you about to move into your new dream home and want to make sure you get the most out of it? You can make your home feel more alive and bring some of that natural beauty from outdoors inside – here are some tips for making the most of your new space right from day one.
- Colours & Textures
Nature provides us with an array of colours and textures that we can incorporate into our homes. Whether it’s through textiles, wallpapers, paint colours or furniture, try to find ways to bring in shades of greens, blues and browns that mimic nature. Wicker baskets, wood accents and soft fabrics are just a few ways to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Natural light has been proven to be beneficial for one’s mental health. Try using window treatments that allow more light in while still providing privacy – think sheer curtains or outside shutters. If you have a room with few windows or limited natural light sources, introduce lamps with warm LED bulbs (2700K). This will help increase the amount of natural-feeling light in your space without being too harsh on your eyes.
Plants are an easy way to bring nature indoors. Not only do they look beautiful, but they also absorb carbon dioxide while giving off oxygen, which improves air quality within your home. There are many plants that are low maintenance, so don’t be intimidated by keeping them alive! For those living on higher floors or don’t have access to a balcony/patio area, consider getting potted plants or hanging plants instead.
- Post-Construction Window Cleaning
After moving into a newly constructed house or apartment building, it’s important to do post-construction window cleaning before bringing in any plants as construction materials such as sawdust can cause damage over time if left uncleaned. The best way to clean these windows is by working from top to bottom with a squeegee and lint-free cloth, as this will help ensure all debris is removed effectively without leaving streaks behind on the glass surface (which can happen when using paper towels or sponges).
Bringing the outdoors inside doesn’t have to be difficult; small changes can make huge differences!
By introducing colours and textures inspired by nature, incorporating natural lighting sources and adding plenty of plants into your home decor scheme, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors even when inside. With these tips, you can easily transform your indoor living spaces into peaceful havens filled with life!
