Be Happy In Your Home

Be Happy In Your Home


 Are you feeling a little bored with your home? Do you have a touch of HGTV envy? Before you spiral into depression at the length of your to-do list, take a moment to reflect on all the things you love about your home.

Remember why you bought it in the first place.
Did you fall in love with the built-in shelves? Did you envision children playing in the backyard? Did you adore the tree-lined streets? Find your favorite spot in the house to curl up and recall some of the features that drew you to it in the first place. It could make you fall back in love with it again. 

Look for little décor changes that can make a big difference. 

Painting a bright accent wall or buying new linens for your dining room can make things seem new. Rearrange the furniture in each room and switch out some of the art and tchotchkes you display to give the place a fresh vibe. 

Repurpose a room to feel like a whole new space. 

Take that spare room you don’t really use at all. Turn that space into a home office, a guest room, or a library with a comfy chair and a good reading lamp. You could steal furniture from another part of the house, or better yet, visit some yard sales and antique stores to find something fun and different. 

Embrace the outside space. 

Utilizing outdoor space is a big trend this year. How about updating your outdoor furniture and creating a sort of living room outside, where you can spend the evening entertaining or relaxing with a completely different view? 

Is it a mess, or is it a sign of a happy home? 

The toys piled in the living room, the fridge so covered in photos, notes, and souvenir magnets that you can’t tell what color it is anymore — is this clutter, or a reminder that your home is full of family, friends, memories, and a life being lived fully? 

Little changes and updates can make a world of difference to how you feel about your home if you pick the right ones to focus on. For bigger remodeling jobs, like adding a skylight or knocking two rooms together, you could consider a home equity or renovation loan. I can help you navigate the loans available for projects like those. 

Of course, if you have a big life change, it’s possible your home just doesn’t fit your needs anymore. Downsizing when the kids leave for college, upsizing if your family is expanding, or having extra driveway space for a new RV can’t really be accomplished by rearranging the furniture. If you think it may really be time to start looking for a new home, contact me to discuss your mortgage options.
