Is your home, warm and inviting? When you walk into your door, does your home make you feel at ease and relaxed? There are definite things that you can do to improve the look and feel of your home, like changing the paint color on the walls, decluttering your home, changing the artwork, changing the doors in your home, changing the window treatments and a host of other things you can do to improve your home’s vibe. Of course if you want to make the biggest impact in bringing your home to life, you can embark upon a project, such as a kitchen remodel, flooring remodel or painting remodel project. These three things can make the quickest immediate impact on your home.
If you speak to an interior designer on the subject, they will tell you to focus on “improving the flow” of your home and it will help improve the situation immensely. However, the $64,000 question starts with what exactly is “flow” and how can you improve upon the “flow” in your home? This is a great question, since flow is intangible. The best way to describe flow is the feeling that you have of the space when you walk in a room. A great analogy that anyone can relate to in their minds is by Interior Designer, Gillian Lazanik from Toronto is the following scenario:
“A well-designed space is like a good pair of shoes: If you’re wearing a good pair of shoes, you don’t even notice that you have them on your feet. But if you’re wearing a bad pair of shoes, you notice them every step of the way. Interiors work the same way.”
