6 Home Improvement Ideas to Liven the Mood

Feeling a bit under the weather? Looking for a much-needed mood elevator? The walls that surround you can have a major impact on your mood and emotional wellbeing.

Here are five feel-good home improvement ideas to lift your spirits.

1. Keep it Nice and Clean

Got stuff lying around you hardly ever use or don’t use at all? Free up space by clearing out your garage or closet. Get rid of that old coffee maker if you’re not using it. You’d be amazed at how reducing unnecessary clutter in your home can affect your stress levels.

Make space to move around freely and keep everything well-organized so you don’t work up a frenzy when you’re leaving in a hurry and can’t find your car keys.

2. Lighten up

Good lighting is something that can instantly lift your spirits. It adds a new dimension of color, warmth, and personality to your home. What atmosphere do you prefer to have in your home? Light and relaxing or exciting and exuberant? Tune your lighting level and place fixtures accordingly. You can use LED lights; they tend to do wonders and also help save energy, hence reducing financial stress. Buying the right quality can also help you save money as they’re durable and can last a lifetime.

A slight shift in lighting is easily one of the most convenient home improvement changes to make, and for a bargain, you can have a highly positive impact on the feel and look of your rooms.

3. Color Me Happy

You don’t have to paint the entire hall or room. Try painting just one wall in your room – an accent wall – which can affect your mood profoundly. Select a bright and neutral color that stimulates people to have lively conversations when they’re in that room. Some colors that have been proven to affect mood positively are: blue, green, violet, and beige. Just the look of it can help you destress after a taxing day at the office. There’s hardly any cost involved and you’re dramatically changing the look of your room.

4. Go for Upgrades

When we say upgrade, we don’t mean ditch a perfectly good household fixture or item and get a new one entirely. Just like painting walls or changing the lighting, you can transform objects of everyday use to make them all look more pleasing to the eye. Does the dinner table have too many scuffs to count? Drape it with an attractive table cover that invites people to use it more. Maybe the door to your room could use some polish. Feel like the sliding door between your hall and dining room is too restrictive? Trade it in for a nice coffee table or a set of silverware.

5. Get All Artsy

Want your home to give off more positive, high-energy vibes? Incorporate natural and creative elements into your living space like a floral arrangement, health-promoting plants, or paintings that lead to feelings of calmness and serenity.

Having art present in any form can have therapeutic effects on your mood. Plus, it’s a creative way to up your home in terms of style. Even something as simple as textured wall coverings, ornate rugs, or uniquely framed family photos can add flair to your home and create highly positive vibes.

6. Use Fragrances to Evoke Positive Emotions

Just like the lighting, colors, and the sounds in and around your home, fragrances can significantly affect your emotions. Remember the last time you walked into a flower or perfume shop? How did it make you feel?
Fragrances register in your brain a certain way which affects how you feel. Some even get déjà vu or flashes of good memories from their past when taking in certain fragrances. However, you don’t want them to be overpowering so as to drive people away. A well-maintained home always smells clean and inviting to everyone. Add to that a pleasant fragrance like lilies or lavender and you’re all set. To save yourself the trouble of finding plants or flowers, you can also spray your favourite air freshener in small doses, though nothing beats doing it naturally.
