If you’ve been looking for ways to revamp your home, you’re not alone. According to The New York Times, since 2010, home improvement projects have increased more than 50% in the United States. As we find ourselves at home more than ever right now, consider 2021 the year you finally make the changes you’ve been dreaming of.

When thinking of how to improve your space, remember that a major renovation isn’t necessary. You can experiment with new interior design trends, simple decorating tricks, and creative DIY decor projects to fill your house with style and comfort. In fact, even the smallest design change, such as adding a new plant to your bedroom, can make a difference in your mood.

And giving your home the design attention it needs is not just about boosting your spirit — it can also help to bolster its functionality, especially if you’re managing work and virtual learning from home. With so much happening at home now due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s important to try and create a truly practical and cohesive style. “COVID-19 has brought to our attention not only how important our relationship with the outdoors is, but also the role our home decor plays in our overall happiness, health, and spirit,” says interior designer Michelle Harrison-McAllister.

Whatever happiness and wellness look like for you this year, it’s a great idea to make some room for home decorating. Our inspirational guide is full of practical decorating advice that’s sure to help you get started on crafting the inviting abode you’ve always wanted.
