Do Away With Fluorescent Lights
Lighting majorly decides a home’s vibes, along with the colors. If you have fluorescent lights in your home, there are several reasons for changing them. One, they increase your energy bills. Two, these lights trigger stress hormones in us, according to some research. This can upset our biorhythms, disrupting the fresh vibe of your home. Moreover, they also emit a lot of heat, taking away the surroundings’ coolness that relaxes you.

Like lighting, colors also determine your home’s overall vibe. While having bolder colors is good, there’s a fine difference between ‘bold’ and ‘uncomfortabe’ colors. You don’t want your guests to say “ouch, these colors hurt”, when you actually want to hear, “wow, nice colors.” Moreover, if your wall-paint seems to be deteriorating, consider getting a fresh coat. It can add a fresh tinge of freshness to your home’s overall look.
Stained and shabby windows can block the sunlight entering your rooms and ruin the overall look of your home.
