There are many reasons why you might want to redecorate your home. Whether you’re looking for a change or need to optimize the space in your rental property, there are many benefits of redecorating your home. 

One of the most popular reasons is that people are getting older and their homes no longer suit their needs as they once did. In this case, it’s important to know what changes need to be made. For example, if your living room is on the ground floor of your home and you’re now in a wheelchair, it might be time to update with a more accessible layout. This article that explores some ways you can make the most of your space.

Reasons for Redecorating

If you have kids, work from home, entertain often or want a more relaxing space at home, there are specific ways you can redecorate depending on those needs. 

For example, if you have kids and need more storage space for toys and games in the basement, consider building an additional staircase or railing so they can reach the storage better while still being safe.

If you work from home but don’t like having clients over because it seems unprofessional in your current setup, consider adding some plants around the house to make it seem more inviting and professional-looking.

Redecorate to Accommodate a New Hobby

If you’re interested in trying out a new hobby, there’s an abundance of home décor options that can make it a more pleasurable and enjoyable experience. You’ll want to consider the type of hobby you’re getting into. 

If you’re into baking, for example, then adding a few baking supplies or other items related to your hobby will be helpful. If you like to knit or crochet, then some yarn and needles would be ideal additions. The same goes for cooking. If you like to cook, then having some pots and pans, as well as spices on hand, will help with your kitchen craft.

Whether it’s an interest in photography or jewelry making, being able to decorate your home according to your hobbies can provide an excellent way to enjoy them even more. Consider what type of crafts or hobbies you enjoy most and how they relate to redecorating your home space so that all your interests are met through decoration.

Project CELEBRATE

I chose “CELEBRATE” as my word of the year for 2022. I simply felt we didn’t put in enough effort in celebrating what we have. After some thinking, I decided to make e-cards available to spread the love!

Please check out the CELEBRATE page on this website. You can save the images or go to the OneDrive link and download the cards you like. Use them in emails, texts, and personal social media. The collection will continue to grow. Please check back often. These images are for personal use only. 

My multimedia journey started in 2020. I quickly found my desire to express beauty in this world. I am still new to graphic design and illustration. Hopefully this project will help me develop my skills while providing others a way to express their feelings and spread positive energy. 

Baby Steps Do Add Up

Halfway through the semester in my typography class, the professor started a voluntary challenge for posting a typography art each day. There were no points or credits attached. To me, there was no risk. I pushed myself to publish one work a day. I soon found joy in practicing different techniques. I also learned more about my style and behavior. In the end, I did the challenge for a full seven weeks, up till the final week.

These daily art pieces were like short musical etudes. They don’t seem much, but deliver quick results. Over time, the effort adds up.
