Many people have a difficult time coming up with gift ideas. But there’s no need to fear. Even though Valentine’s Day usually revolves around traditional gift staples, there are creative and endearing solutions for those looking to really blow away their recipient for the upcoming holiday or even a birthday. So what makes a great gift? Something thoughtful, that can improve the quality of life. Repurposing a room to suit someone’s lifestyle, or encourage their creativity is an excellent gift from the heart. At least that’s what we believe.
What do you call a room where people come to view all the biggest sporting events? Well, some call it chaos…but others call it “the place to be.” As opposed to a living room, entertainment areas that are off the beaten path allow people to be more liberal with their décor and make the place a nice retreat from foot traffic and distractions. This type of environment can be great for encouraging relaxation. Choosing relaxing paint colors like deep blues for the interior has also been shown to lower blood pressure and make the room seem more inviting. Otherwise, consider picking a pleasant shade of yellow, as the color has been known to improve mood.
During cold Indiana winters, people often explore new hobbies. Has your special someone been spending more time crafting or creating this past season? These hobbies require a good amount of space that often can be a hassle if it’s in a high-traffic or cluttered area. Dedicating a spare room for crafts would help nurture the newfound interest and likely score some serious points with the person in the process. But before moving and rearranging furniture, take stock of the current interior color. Certain colors and shades of interior paint can dramatically alter the appearance of fabrics and materials used for crafts. A version of white paint with little to no gloss ensures that each color in their material will appear just as expected when it leaves the room.
These types of rooms are just a couple of examples. Offering someone a designated space to improve their quality of life and explore their passions is a gift that can be enjoyed every day.
