The sofa has been in the same place for years and the vase on the hanging shelf has not felt in a long time. Just moving the furniture and decorations can have a big effect on the overall effect of the home.

For example, arranging objects in groups of three already has a certain effect. The eye perceives odd groups as more harmonious and interesting true than even numbers. This tendency towards asymmetry is also reflected in the arrangement itself. If everything is neatly lined up, it can seem a bit stiff, which is why a loose arrangement is more advisable.

Rethink the lighting concept

It is not for nothing that you put something in the right light or you let something appear in a new light. Pleasant lighting makes a great contribution to well-being in the home. It is advisable to have some kind of basic lighting for every room. This can be a large ceiling light in the living room that illuminates most of the room. It is supplemented with the help of individual floor lamps, floor lamps or indirect light behind furniture to create a cozy atmosphere.

When choosing lightbulbs, color also plays a role. Light with a low color value makes a warmer impression, which is why warm bulbs are well suited for the bedroom or living room. Cold colors belong in the workplace.

A change of scenery can work wonders

If the minor changes in the apartment have not yet helped, it may be worth repainting. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the entire room. Sometimes single walls or surfaces are enough to get a new impression of the room. A colored wall can often form a frame around certain pieces of furniture in order to better showcase them.

Contrary to expectations, colors are also suitable for smaller rooms, because they don’t always have to be white. A room can become higher if it is painted a light color. The desired effect can be achieved with tones such as cream, yellow or sand. It looks particularly elegant when the ceiling is painted in a lighter variant of the wall color. Longitudinal strips stretch the room upwards.

The possibilities for a new coat of paint are endless. The best thing to do here is to experiment with colors and shapes and see which result you are happiest with.
