ONE YEAR OF COVID; HOW TO REFRESH A SPACE YOU’VE LIVED IN FOR A YEAR

Written by Danielle Kelly on . Posted in Uncategorized

We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the first shutdown, and whilst it seems like it’s been much, much, much longer, we’re also starting to think about the fact that we’ve been living in the same space for a whole year now, and  the way we use those spaces has changed, perhaps permanently. If you’re anything like us, you’re also probably beginning to reflect on how much you’ve changed since lockdowns first begun, and thinking that perhaps your home should reflect who you are now. Here are some great ideas that might help your home to feel a little more pandemic-friendly.

Creating a Positive Workspace

 Our homes aren’t just places we return to eat, sleep and relax in, they’re now also the places we work from. It doesn’t look like we’ll see a return to office environments soon, so maybe now is the time to start thinking about creating a workspace that works for you. If you find it difficult to concentrate whilst at home, try creating a space that will help you to keep focused- you can do this by maximising your hidden storage, so that you aren’t constantly distracted by things near to you, and by incorporating sunlight and foliage so that the space seems more lively and natural.

Prioritising Your Mental Health

It’s also important to think about creating a space that promotes positive mental health- it’s doubly hard to be locked down if your space is causing you anxiety or stress. Try installing mirrors to reflect and double the natural sunlight, and invest in good hidden storage so that you can avoid living in clutter. If you’re thinking of fully renovating, you could also try to add contrast between spaces, so that you feel that you’re moving around over the course of a day, rather than staying in the same or similar spaces.

Refresh The Spaces You Spend the Most Time In

We touched on this earlier, but if you’ve spent the past year ‘commuting’ from your bed to your workspace, and you don’t want to get stuck into redecorating your whole home, try just replacing the key objects- especially your bed and your desk. The average person spends approximately a third of their life in bed and a further third at work, so refreshing these spaces will make a world of difference.  If you’re looking to replace your bed, we have some incredible deals available on our site, including giving you a mattress half price when you buy your bed from us.

Bringing the Outside In

This might seem obvious, but plants can completely change the way we view a space, especially subconsciously- there are real mental health benefits to bringing nature indoors. On a physical level, green plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which is good for both you and the planet.

Lots of these things seem small, but small changes can sometimes make a world of difference, especially when you’ve been stuck at home for a while. With any luck, you’ll also be renovating so that your home feels fresh and new for when life opens back up again. Even if that isn’t the case, it will still feel great to have a home that reflects who you are now.

HOW TO MAKE A SMALL ROOM SEEM HUGE

Move things upwards

Anything you can raise off of the floor and onto the walls is great- having your stuff stored on shelves or hung up draws the eye upwards to create an illusion of height whilst also liberating floor space so the room feels bigger.

Less clutter frees up floor space

Any piece of furniture which doubles as storage is great, because if you can store things in an ottoman bed like this (hyperlink), then your room will have less need of extra furnishings and will seem much bigger.

Know your colour theory

Whilst it’s true that light colours create the illusion of size, dark colours can also create a sense of depth which widens out a room just as well.

Use contrast

If you paint a wall in two colours, with the bottom three-quarters darker than the top, the line creates contrast. Because the human eye is naturally drawn to contrast, the eye travels upwards and creates an illusion of height.

Hang curtains well above the window

A favourite hack of Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk, hanging the curtain rail a foot or so above the top of the window is another trick that convinces the human brain that the ceiling is much higher than it actually is.

Buy a mirror

If your small room doesn’t get much natural light, it’ll seem a lot closer and darker than it is. As we said before, light creates the illusion of space, so adding a mirror big enough to reflect some natural light adds depth to a room.

Buy a visually interesting light fixture

An interesting light fixture draws the eye upwards and creates the illusion of height, whilst also distracting from a lack of floor space.

Buy furniture with legs

Furniture that sits directly on the ground or which has a skirt makes everything in a room feel lower and stops light from moving through. By buying furnishings that are raised off the floor, you’ll ensure everything in a room looks slightly higher and a lot more open.

Create Space

A small room with lots of furniture crammed together will feel tiny- by bringing furniture     away from the wall slightly and spacing it out, you’ll seem like you have a lot more floor space

Find your light

If your room is dark, it’ll seem small, so augment your main light source with some lamps, candles or fairy lights .
