The recent pandemic has forced everyone to not only stay indoors but also to look around and appreciate their surroundings or realize that they should really consider sprucing things up and adding some flair to the living space they spend most of their time in either alone or with family, friends, and pets.
Here are a few ideas that can spice things up and keep things interesting if you are forced to stay inside your home for months on end.
Tv When It Is On And Art When It Is Off
Entertainment is a must to keep from going crazy during any lockdown, so why not fuse the beauty of framed art with the mind-numbing experience of sitting in front of a television set for hours alone or with family and friends?
Television makers now offer TV’s that function both as smart devices that can also be used for other things besides watching the usual TV channels and when turned off display beautiful works of art that can transform your living room into an art gallery or museum or purchase a tv that mounts flat against the wall and comes already framed to look like a picture on the wall.
Adding a one-connect box with just one cord that comes from the tv down to a box that you can stash somewhere which allows you to connect all your inputs into will really make it look like a picture on the wall.
Custom Aquariums Bring Life Into Your Home
Install a fish tank right into your wall to provide the room with a living work of art that is fluid and soothing as well since studies show that aquariums relieve stress and invoke an environment of peace and serenity that promotes good physical and mental health.
Make sure to include plants in your fish tank for color and to improve the environment for your pets, click here for a list of the best natural and artificial aquarium decorations available to add novelty to your décor.
Consider putting in a functional piano aquarium that can produce sweet sounds and lovely melodies while at the same time soothing the soul visually through the peaceful flow of colorful fish swimming back and forth through plants to the sound of musical waves and frequencies that surround them.
You can also purchase a fully functioning personal computer that doubles as an amazing aquarium or a desktop computer-powered aquarium that provides a comfortable habitat for colorful fish so you can work or do research at home while enjoying the physical and mental health benefits that come with owning a fish tank.
An Antique Bird Cage With A Bird Living In It Provides Companionship And Flare
Exquisite antique bird cages are both beautiful and unique and can be used as home décor with or without birds living inside of them.
If you just, for whatever reason, happen to find yourself alone most of the time, a pet bird or a pair of love birds just might be the perfect fit for you, especially if you have limited dwelling or office space, limited mobility, or find yourself living on a tight budget.
For all those reasons, birds can be wonderful companions for senior citizens, children without any Brothers or Sisters, or anyone living in a lonely household without any pets around. In all those scenarios birds can provide companionship and enjoyment for many years.
Along with their social nature, most birds are smart, entertaining, and loyal. An antique birdcage can be a focal point for any room in the house and is multi-functional should you decide to display it without any living species inside.
For example, it can be converted into a lamp or used to display statues or souvenirs purchased on vacation.
Create An Art Wall In Any Room
Finally, art can inspire, intrigue and relax the mind, so why not challenge yourself by collecting your favorite works of art and hanging them up in a way that you find most pleasing? The wall can reflect your history or personality.
This do-it-yourself project will give you hours of fun. Sort through galleries, antique shops, and family albums before deciding on what you wish to look at when you are sipping a glass of wine or tea while listening to your favorite music as you relax alone or with family and friends any time of year.
Any of the ideas listed above will engage your creative spirit and remind you when you are done that home is where the heart is.
