In part one of our series on how to deal with damage from home flooding, we talked about a few ways to look for the silver lining and take advantage of the situation in order to redecorate your home. Here are a few more tips to make your house feel more like home after you’ve experienced home flooding:
- Take the opportunity to move things around. If you’ve kept a piece of art in your living room for the last decade, moving it to a new room and finding something new can be a refreshing change of pace.
- Now is the time to declutter. Everyone has stuff that they hang onto, throw into a closet, and forget about. Take advantage of the change in your home and get rid of the stuff that’s just taking up space.
- Don’t feel like you have to go crazy all at once. Take the time and enjoy the process. Although it can be stressful, be sure to take a step back and decide if what you’re doing is working the way you want it to and what else can be done to make things better.
- Bring in some lamps to brighten the space up. Whether you’re using a floor lamp near the couch for some reading light, a pendant light to fill out some of the room’s dark space, or a small lamp on your side table for decoration, light works well to tie a room together.
- Don’t be afraid to break the “rules” in your own way. It’s easy to get caught up in what you think you’re supposed to do; instead, do what you like and you’re guaranteed to enjoy your space.
