Natural sunlight can have a huge impact on a room. Install curtains or shades that can be drawn back, so you can let outdoor light pour in.

2. Put your most used dishes in door-less cabinets.

You use plates, bowls, and cups the most frequently in the kitchen. Save yourself some time by storing them in door-less cabinets so they are quicker to spot and access.

3. Keep your kitchen counters clear.

Have a space for everything and put it there after use. This will make wiping down the counters after cooking easier and help keep your kitchen feeling clean and comfortable.

4. Stick to neutral tones in your bathroom.

Opt for muted neutral tones, like white or beige, in your bathroom. These colors will be more soothing on your eyes and will make getting ready or winding down that much better.

6. Less is more when it comes to decor.

A wall filled with photos or art can make a room feel small and cluttered, and the same goes for furniture. Utilizing minimalism when decorating will help to open a room up and bring more attention to what is present.

7. Be mindful of a room's layout.

What is the eye drawn to first in a room? Organize your furniture based on this focal point and group things together in a layout that is logical and comfortable.

8. Use soft lamps rather than overhead lighting.

Overhead lighting can be jarring and harsh. Instead, have several lamps throughout a room to create a warmer, more inviting tone in the room.

9. Spend a bit extra for a comfy bed.

Your bed is where you recharge each night. Get a nice mattress, a mattress topper, high thread count sheets, and some good pillows. It may be a bit pricey up front, but you'll realize it was worth it when you wake up every morning.
