How to Make Your Home a Healthier, More Vibrant Space

Even as we resume our regular pre-pandemic activities, many of us are still spending more time at home — and many are working remotely for the long haul. And since our home environment can directly affect how we think and feel, it’s important to create a space that supports our overall health and well-being — whether that means building a home gym, eliminating clutter, revamping our home office, and/or giving our interior walls a fresh coat of paint.

Check out these tips from Real Estate Pros to learn how to make your home a healthier and more vibrant space for improved physical, mental, and emotional wellness.

Build a Home Gym

Whether you’ve canceled your gym membership indefinitely or you’re looking to improve your mood, memory, and physical health, building an in-home fitness center could motivate you to care for your mind and body on a regular basis. If you have a basement, for instance, you could convert it into a space for working out, practicing yoga, meditating, or reading and relaxing — depending on your specific wellness goals.

Many local professionals are available to assist with your basement renovation, or you could attempt to build your own home gym if you’re on a budget. However, paying a contractor to renovate your basement will reduce stress and improve the quality of your home gym. If you’re planning to convert your basement, keep track of any improvements you make because they could end up dramatically boosting your home’s overall value.

Organize and Declutter

A bit of clutter may seem innocent enough, but overly cluttered and unorganized spaces can increase feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. As such, now is the time to organize and declutter your living space if you’re having trouble relaxing, focusing, or keeping track of important files and documents. An organized home saves you time, money, and stress.

Add a Home Office

If you work from home, it’s essential that you create a distraction-free workspace. You can locate your office in an unused bedroom, basement, or even your garage. Make sure whichever space you choose has enough outlets. It’s also worth investing in some ergonomic furniture like a desk and office chair. Then pick up some mood-boosting indoor plants and artwork to keep you focused, positive, and productive.

Choose Calming Paint Colors

Painting your interior walls is one of the easiest ways to create a healthier, more vibrant living space, especially if you choose calming colors like light neutrals and soft blues and greens. However, it’s important to use non-toxic paints from brands such as The Real Milk Paint Co, Sherwin-Williams Harmony, Clare, or ECOS Paints. You’ll create a more tranquil home without harming your lungs or the health of the planet.

Expand Your Outdoor Space

Spending time outdoors does wonders for your physical, mental, and emotional health — but what if you don’t have a decent outdoor space to enjoy throughout the year? Here are a few ideas to consider:

Build a patio if you own your home. ● Add a fire pit, outdoor heater, or fireplace to heat your space when temperatures drop. ● Use lanterns and string lights to brighten the outdoor space. ● Upgrade your balcony if you live in an apartment. ● Choose weatherproof furniture. ● Install a backyard hot tub.

Transform Your Living Space for Better Health and Well-Being There’s no better time to make a few healthy changes to our living environments. Some home upgrades can be completed in an hour or less, while others — such as renovating a basement or organizing an entire home — may require the help of a skilled professional.

Fortunately, creating a healthier home doesn’t have to break the bank. Likewise, upgrading your living space could be as simple as decluttering your home office, painting your walls, and adding a few houseplants. The important thing is that the home you live in supports your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
