Ready to reboot your home’s vibe? Sure, you love it no matter what, but maybe it’s time to stage an intervention for your living space. New paint, a big rug, different curtains, blah blah blah… been there, done that, have the stack of receipts to prove it. We’ve got a few easier ideas for giving your favorite rooms a lifestyle refresh.
Give Your Room… Well… Room to Breathe
Rather than adding or switching out items to revive your space, it’s sometimes more effective (and always free) to remove stuff. A room crowded with furniture and décor can feel stifling. Try removing a piece at a time until you really open up the room—you’ll think you just finished a major remodeling, sans drywall dust and electrician’s butt-crack.
Thinking Outside the Bottle
With your favorite Unstopables Air Refresher, you’re able to smell the wonderland you fantasize about. Is that modest Taj Mahal/Hanging Gardens of Babylon fusion not in your budget? You can still bring a bit of that luxury to life. Breathe in your Unstopables scent. What do you see in your mind? Objects, colors, waves of energy and light—all will help you choose the right accents for your home. Lavender and blue pillows for the couch, a framed print or a vase of flowers on the end table, and so on. That’s the power of Unstopables: scent guru, lifestyle coach, spirit guide.
See Your World in a New Light
The way your rooms are lit has a lot to do with how you use and enjoy them. To start with, most rooms don’t have enough light. It’s so dim in your living room, you almost tripped over the ottoman… wait, you don’t have an ottoman. (What was that?) Anyway, reinventing a room can be as simple as changing the light. Move or add a lamp, or change the type of bulb. Or if you want to alter a room’s mood at will, replace the standard wall switch with a dimmer. Too old school for you? Then consider LED light strips. They’re fairly inexpensive, you can place them just about anywhere, and you can move them when you’re ready for another room refresh. What’s more, many LED light strips have the ability to display multiple colors and combinations of color. You even can control some with an app on your phone or tablet. People, the future is now, and it is bright! (Yeah, we said it.)
Nap Out of It
Do you feel guilty about sitting down on the sofa to “rest your eyes” for a minute? Well, don’t! You work hard, and there’s a good chance that you’re sleep deprived, which can put both your physical and mental well-being at risk—that’s a lot of well-being! Fortunately, recent research shows that a power nap is good for you. A half-hour snooze can help repair the damage done by a lack of sleep. And if you need to study the insides of your eyelids in a hurry, there’s no better way to drift off than with a couch, blanket, and pillow treated to your favorite Unstopables Fabric Refresher Spray. Before you know it, you’re off in a luxurious dream, recharging only to take on the waking world. Just be sure to set an alarm—our scents are pretty powerful.
