Redecorating Your Home: After Rehab
Decorating one home can be chaotic enough. Decorating your home after rehab can be more than daunting. This can make you stressed, especially after rehab. Particularly since rehab centers like Drug Rehab Florida boast an amazing atmosphere for when you need it the most.
Before you do, there are some simple ways of getting by. You won’t have to do much to decorate your home in the style you’ve always wanted.
If you’ve picked up a home on the beach, especially South Beach, you’ll want a warm, tropical, and approachable vibe that you and your guests can enjoy. This is easily attainable in a place like Florida, as decor is often sold as aligning with the beach bum lifestyle you’ve been coveting. Get ready to impress and destress in your home.
To Rent or Not to Rent
According to your financial stability and long-term needs, deciding whether or not to rent out your vacation home will affect how you furnish and decorate it. For example, if you rent your home, you will want to furnish according to durability, ease, and comfort. You may even want to decorate as little as possible if you want your renter to have a sense of home as they live there, or so as not to risk damage to your furniture, even though accidents do happen.
If you decide not to rent, you’ll have a bit more freedom (and a little more money, we’re guessing) when it comes to decor and how exactly you want to display and enjoy your home. It can be as immaculate or subdued as you prefer. For bonus points, you may want to take your home in a totally different direction from your first.
Quality Over Quantity
When it comes to your vacation home, naturally, you won’t be updating it as frequently as your first home. If that is the case, you will want to buy and furnish your house with more durable accents.
This means that you should invest in a nice chenille rug if possible (which is sturdy, warm, and comfortable for all seasons), as well as furniture that will hold up over time, like walnut wood furnishings rather than the imitations. Though it might be pricier at first, you won’t have to make a trip to IKEA in a few years as you would otherwise (not that there’s anything wrong with IKEA).
Same goes for beds and mattresses. A creaky bed is the worst, and so is a hard, uncomfortable mattress. Going the extra mile when it comes to buying quality furniture will ensure the comfort of both you and your guests.
Pleasing the Crowd
Another interesting aspect of your home is that you may host more friends and family because of the space or novelty of it. Because of this, it never hurts to try to please the crowd with your decorating skills.
You can use more neutral furniture or accents, or be as vibrant as your visitors are. But then, stay true to yourself above all else. Pleasing the crowd is a great bonus if you can swing it though. Everyone wants their ego stroked once in a while.
Bouncing back after rehab can feel like a stressful journey, but once you’ve made it through, you’ll love your home and appreciate it after such a daunting part of your life. Plus, redecorating your home after rehab can give you a fresh new start!
