Enhancing your mood can be as simple as changing the interior of your home. And, you can do it without reaching too far into your pockets. That’s right – rearranging can feel a lot like remodeling if you do it effectively. Here are a few tips we’ve learned to boost your mood and make your home feel as good as new:

  • Lighting can affect your mood. Depending on the atmosphere you’re trying to create, it’s important to know what works and what doesn’t. If you want a room to be relaxing, dimming the lights can actually cause people to feel sleepier, which causes the body to create more melatonin. For rooms with a lighter, faster-paced environment, brighter lights are best. The kitchen is a good place to use hard light for cooking, and installing a dimmer can be essential for a room like this.
  • Choosing the right color affects ambiance. Did you know that paint colors you choose can make all the difference in the world when it comes to making a room feel cozy or more alive? It can even make a small room feel bigger and a big room seem smaller. If you plan on experimenting with this, do some research on what colors work best.
