When the current global health crisis and social restrictions first began, most of us focused on places we could not go and things we could not do. No gym, no school, no salon, no cinema and certainly no pubs or restaurants. But eventually, we became focused on where we must be … at home.

Some of us rediscovered how much we enjoy being home. Safe from the turmoil outside in our little oasis of sanity, we reconnected with our families, using the whole experience to create a stronger and more intimate connection with those we love.

With the concept of home changing for a lot us recently, its highlighted how personal our home can be, so with the past months in mind, here are some tips for condos and house:

CONDO

There’s a good chance your condo in the city lacks access to trees, plants, and nature as a whole. To bring a little bit of country into your city condo, invest in plants for your balcony.

Art is a beautiful way to spice up your condo.

Paint can be another element that broadens the space of a condo. Soft and vibrant colors can give a warm feeling.

Another home décor trend is floating shelves, and they are great for an apartment. Floating shelves are great because they have less bulk than regular shelves and therefore take up less space.

HOUSE

If you’re shopping for hardware for cabinets, doors, lights, etc., don’t be afraid to buy different finishes. A variety of materials will help achieve a gathered-over-time look, even if you really did pick it all out at once. Apply this approach to furniture styles and color palettes as well.

Splurge on a great scented candle. This isn’t where you can go cheap ― scent is everything. Done right, they make a room feel warm and inviting.

Bigger is better when it comes to art. Large canvases add a statement to any room and can even make wall space appear larger.

Set your home apart from everyone else’s homes with lighting. Use dimmers, use lamps and use track lighting to accomplish this task. Layering the different types of light in the room is key.
