The concept of ‘home’ has evolved over the years for both personal and professional reasons. The entire family may not be under one roof, but that doesn’t change the meaning. Home isn’t just a house, but it’s a place where you should feel comfortable and safe. You should look forward to returning home, because it is your space. You don’t have to be the homeowner, this also applies to your rented accommodation, or even a temporary room. As long as your heart and soul are there, it’s your home.
Given the new ‘normal’ of working from home or #StayingHome, sometimes even the brightest corners in your home look a bit mundane, forcing you to think outside the box and get some freshness in.
How do you enhance your home then?
There is loads of inspiration available around you. Browse through social media, even if it’s mindless browsing. Instagram and Pinterest are great when it comes to beautifying hacks or DIY ideas. Or perhaps get a social media detox and flip through magazine pages. If it’s difficult to get a hardcopy of a magazine, you can always binge-watch! A picture is worth a thousand words and these days a video is worth a thousand such pictures! Home renovation shows are the one that seem to inspire us the most these days.
After much research, we’ve been able to compile a list of the top home improvement shows to look out for:
