Simple Projects for Updating the Home During Self-Isolation
For many of us, this new normal of working remotely, Zoom meetings, and self-isolation is starting to take a toll. While people wrestle with the big, long-term effects of the novel coronavirus, there are other considerations, too — like what to do all day long. It’s a good question! If you’re looking around your home and feeling uninspired, we’re sharing simple projects for updating the home during self-isolation.
A fresh perspective is as easy as rearranging some furniture — really! Try the sofa against a different wall, add a console table, move that gorgeous armchair to another room, or switch out table lamps. You don’t have to bring in anything new (but with The Find’s social media channels, phone orders, and curbside pick-up, you absolutely can!), and you might be really surprised at how refreshed your space feels after a little reorganizing.
You can do this on a smaller scale too, by re-styling your bookcases or coffee table. For a fresh, clean arrangement, minimize clutter, keep things neutral, and play up a few of your favorite pieces.
We’re home all day, every day, and things tend to pile up. Entryways and kitchens tend to be the worst offenders, so commit to paring down and organizing both areas. Use a critical eye — a clean, functional, and understated aesthetic can be the calm we all need in this current storm.
You don’t have to haul out the paint to have an impact. Straightening your art, mirrors, and other wall hangings will pull things together nicely. For a bigger change, give some of your favorite pieces a new home in an unexpected spot. At The Find, we have a fabulous selection of wall art and mirrors — if you see something special on our Instagram or Facebook, we’re accepting phone orders for curbside pick-up!
If a brand new sofa or dining room table isn’t in the cards right now, a fresh accessory can be a happy little alternative. Our amazing faux succulents, orchids, and arrangements will look great forever, and they add a lush vibrancy that’s seasonally appropriate right now. Little updates like new throw pillows, artwork, and lighting can go a great distance in updating a space, and we invite you to contact us if you’re looking for something specific.
