    37 Ways To Turn Your Home Into Your Favorite Place In The World

    Sometimes the simplest touches can transform your entire space.

    1. Add an absolutely stunning tapestry to your wall to ensure that you have a beautiful, relaxing view to gaze at no matter where you are.

    2. Learn how to make your bed look as welcoming and aesthetically pleasing as the ones in the stores with this helpful guide about how to style your pillows like an expert!

    3. Consider getting yourself an automatic, programmable coffee pot so you can wake up to a fresh pot of life sustaining bean juice and customize it to your exact preferences.

    4. Try putting up some Dalmatian dot removable wallpaper to dress up any walls that are just so ~doggone~ plain otherwise. One reviewer even used it as contact paper to cover their bedside table!

    5. Treat yourself to a bath overflow drain cover so you can actually enjoy a relaxing bath even if your tub is on the shallow side. This'll give you a few extra inches of toasty water... all without causing your tub to make that obnoxious gulping sound that is the opposite of relaxing.

    6. Replace harsh white lights with warm Edison bulbs that'll give your space a charming vintage feel.

    7. Fill your walls with hidden shelves to turn your prized book collection into a bookworm's dream display so you can admire them daily.

    8. Splurge on an electric fireplace if you want the cozy log cabin experience without having to deal with the maintenance of a real fire! No complicated hookups or vents required! Just plug it in anywhere, and enjoy the impressive amount of heat, LED flames, glowing logs, and adjustable crackling sounds.

    9. Cover your windows with a prismatic window film – it's easy to stick on any glass surface for an extra layer of privacy *and* some gorgeous rainbow reflections that'll make your space feel a little more magical.

    10. Hang some LED cloud lights because ~the sky's the limit~ when it comes to lighting options that can totally transform your home. Each cloud has eight different light settings (fade, flash, dim, etc.), is battery operated so there are no ugly cords to try and hide, and even includes a convenient timer.

    11. Get yourself a fun leafy plant that can add some life and green energy to your place. This Golden Pothos is known for helping clear the air of toxins (like carbon monoxide and paint fumes). Plus, it's one of the easiest plants to grow — even if you tend to forget to water from time to time!

    12. Or opt for some faux ivy that'll make a de-VINE addition to any room that needs a little touch of green — without the maintenance of real plants!

    13. Learn how to arrange and layer your belongings to make shelves, coffee tables, or sofas look more visually appealing and less cluttered.

    16. Swap out plain ol' light bulbs with some color-changing, dimmable bulbs you can control from your phone to change the atmosphere of your space to fit your mood.

    17. Turn any wall into an art lover's dream with a gallery wall kit that includes seven frames, a hanging template, hardware, and a set of black and white prints you can use to fill the space between other art pieces and family photos.

    18. Make your space feel like a luxury spa with some candles made with all natural essential oils. Choose from incredible scents like lemongrass eucalyptus, water lily pear, oak moss amber, tobacco cedar, cranberry dahlia, grapefruit mango, cashmere jasmine, sea salt sage, lavender thyme, and more to treat your nose as well as your mind, body, and spirit.

    19. Or try a flameless LED candle set ideal for anyone who craves the ambience of candles but is far too anxiety-ridden to actually allow open flames in their home.

    20. Stick a suction cup drink holder right on your bathroom wall so you can unwind with your preferred beverage in the shower after a long day.

    21. Install a Tushy bidet attachment that'll make all other bathrooms pale in comparison. You'll feel much cleaner and more refreshed after going #2, plus it cuts down on your TP usage and makes your routine more sustainable.

    22. Make nighttime a little more magical by putting a star projector in your room so you can fall asleep under the peaceful night sky without having to leave your home.

    24. If you've been storing your vinyl in ugly old milk crates for way too long, try displaying them on a floating ledge that's perfect for making your space feel like a cool little record shop where everything's free!

    25. Upgrade your mirror with some LED stick-on lights to make you feel like a movie star every time you do your skincare routine — which, BTW, will be a lot easier with this lighting upgrade!

    26. Add a lunar glow to your space with an impressively detailed, dual color moon-shaped light that'll make your home feel a whole lot cozier.

    27. Make your space look like it's straight out of a magazine by adding a stylish area rug that'll really tie the room together.

    28. Hang some solar-powered hummingbird wind chimes that are beautiful during the day and STUNNING at night. They slowly change colors and can be hung both inside and outside to add a calming vibe to your space.

    29. Upgrade your bathroom with a luxurious nonslip memory foam bath mat that feels like stepping onto a soft, velvety cloud so the first thing your feet feel when you exit the shower is total comfort. It dries quickly and comes in a variety of gorgeous colors you can match to the rest of your bathroom decor.

    30. Make any room a lot more fun with some chalkboard paint so you can dress up your walls with funny messages, cute doodles, and more, knowing you can just wipe it clean and start fresh anytime!

    31. Gift yourself a full body zero gravity massage chair that'll turn your home into the ultimate relaxation station.

    32. Or try out a massage seat cushion if you don't have the space for a full chair. This thing is still pretty amazing though! It has six vibration nodes and a remote control so you can customize which parts of your back it focuses on. Plus, it has two heat levels you can choose between, ensuring that whichever chair you put it on will be your favorite spot in the whole house.

    33. Revolutionize your living room by adding a coffee table with a bunch of hidden storage and a top that lifts up to become a makeshift desk or table! Now you'll have extra space to work, eat, and store everything that's usually scattered around your home.

    34. Stick some color-changing, self-adhesive LED light strips to your walls that make it easy to change the vibe of the room with your mood. You can switch the color and dim the lights via remote control. Plus, the strips are easy to cut and link together to get the size just right for your space.

    35. Keep some delightful smelling shower steamers on hand – they're essentially bath bombs for showers! Just place one in the corner of your shower to release calming fragrances while you unwind after a long day.

    36. Display a botanical art print if you're the kind of person who loves plants, but has trouble keeping them alive.
