Congratulations – you are now an empty-nester and you can truly make your home all your own! This might seem a little tricky, but don’t worry – these tips will provide you with the perfect place to start on how to turn your house into an oasis.
Take some time to sit down with yourself and figure out what you truly like and what you want to incorporate into your home. This could be anything from new hardwood floors to installing a clawfoot bathtub! Prioritizing your wants and hopes for your space is the goal here. Focus on what you love and what small elements would help to turn your home into a cozy oasis. If you feel stuck in this process, consider hiring an interior designer. This can allow you to sit back and relax while your home is transforming, giving you time to focus on other things, like how to match the shades of your outfit with every season. Make sure that what you decide when it comes to changes with your home reflects your style and some of your favorite aspects of life.
Add Pampering Touches
If you want your home to feel like an oasis, it will need some luxurious additions! Think about what you want to do in your home that will make it relaxing – do you want to lounge around on a big, comfy couch, or have a relaxing sauna? Either or both of these can be achieved! If you want your home to feel like a personal spa, consider installing a sauna in your bathroom area for an extra touch of luxury. Of course, when you are getting anything installed, it is always best to have the mold pros check out your home or a specific area to ensure you are safe. Another option to make your home feel luxurious, especially if you do not want to break the bank, is to pick out a new small appliance. Something like a nice coffee machine or new toaster can really make you feel like you just woke up in a five-star hotel. Consider any of these touches to give your home that extra touch of luxury.
Add Small Details
Another great aspect of creating an oasis is adding small things you love to your space. For example, if you are practicing yoga, set up a nice yoga station in your room or anywhere really – deck it out with a nice yoga mat, some plants, and a towel. Or if you love reading, invest in a nice book area. This can be big or small – including storage for your favorite books, a comfy place to sit, a nice reading light, and any small accessories that would make the space more personal. Take a walk-through of your home and see if any area feels impersonal or just not like you. Take those spaces and turn them into something you love. One of the easiest ways to do this is hanging up wall decor of your favorite things throughout your home. These could be posters of your favorite movies, a funny quote, or really anything you can think of! Take the time to personally create a space that feels like an oasis – you deserve it!
