Great Tips to Give Your Home That Perfect Post-Pandemic Makeover


If you’ve been putting off an update for the last few years, your home may be ready for a much-overdue refresh to commemorate the end of the pandemic and the dawning of a new era in your life. Top Banana Antiques invites you to consider the tips below before conducting a post-pandemic home makeover.


Show Your Walls Some Love

Paint, wallpaper, and stick-on decals can all be good choices for changing the color and ambiance of a room. Wallpaper, in particular, can infuse a room with instant elegance. Using durable peel-and-stick wallpaper can be an affordable, no-risk solution as you can move it around if you need to thanks to the adhesive backing. Consider ordering wallpaper to be printed on demand so that you don't have to worry about not having enough of your favorite prints.


Change Your Color Scheme

You may not need to purchase new furniture or paint your walls to give your home a DIY makeover quickly. Choosing a new color scheme and incorporating accent pieces such as pillows, lamps, and rugs can bring a room to life in surprising ways. If you do paint, consider choosing a neutral color that will complement any seasonal changes or future color scheme alterations. And if you’re planning to sell your home sooner rather than later, you may want to choose a color that you know is market- and buyer-friendly.


Add Accessories for Ambiance

Switching out the outdated painting that’s gathering dust over the mantel for one that more accurately reflects your current tastes can give your home an instant facelift — so can adding new lamps or a gorgeous new antique side table from Top Banana Antiques. Focus on unique patterns, textures, and shapes in addition to the color and style of the pieces.


Digitize Paper Records


Though filing cabinets full of paper records may seem like a thing of the past, for many people, they are still very much a part of daily life. From bills and tax documents to family photo albums, there are all sorts of papers that can quickly take over a home. One way to declutter your living space is to digitize these records. By scanning and storing them electronically, you can clear out those pesky filing cabinets and free up valuable storage space. In addition, combining multiple pages into a single PDF keeps your files more organized and accessible than their paper counterparts. Best of all, free online tools allow you to quickly consolidate everything from tax papers to photographs into smaller files you can tuck away on your computer or mobile device.


Use a Fragrance to Create Interest

Giving your house a signature fragrance can lift your spirits and help you associate your home with a place of comfort and relaxation. Use a wall plug-in device, a whole-home diffuser, or a fragrance pack that you can install quickly inside your aircon filter for an entire-home scent option. Consider first whether your family’s allergies or asthma may factor into your choice of scent: Some individuals find that they can breathe easier with essential oils, but they remain intolerant to artificial fragrances.


Install New Lighting

Good lighting can change the feeling of your home and influence your mood. According to Lumen Now, the color temperature of your light has a lot to do with how you read, concentrate, and rest. Harsh lighting that is too blue or white can contribute to a home that feels more like a workplace than a cozy home. If you work from home and need bright lighting to facilitate concentration and productivity, consider using daylight-spectrum bulbs at your desk and adding softer, more ambient lighting in other areas to create a mood of luxury and relaxation.


If your home has become a little worse for wear, it’s time to give it the refresh it needs. Consider adding bold wallpaper patterns, and invest in a few unique pieces of furniture or decor. Take the time to declutter and organize paper records, and don’t forget to change up the lighting. A little can go a long way towards making your home feel great again.
