Decorating and Organization Tips to Suit Every Lifestyle

No matter what type of dwelling you live in or whether you rent or own, your home should be a reflection of your personality and be designed to accommodate your lifestyle. Today, Lettuce Organize shares some helpful tricks and resources for creating a living space that fits your specific needs.

For the Busy Family

Between school, work, extracurricular activities, and doctor appointments, families juggle a lot. Using a command center helps to manage multiple schedules and keep the household running smoothly. A command center typically includes:

• Large calendar

• Weekly menu

• Clock

• Board for notes and reminders

• Grocery list

• File folder for important paperwork (mail, permission slips, etc.)

Place your command center in a visible location that all family members regularly access such as the entryway or kitchen. Personalize the space by adding family photos or souvenirs from travel adventures.

For the Work-From-Home Professional

Working remotely means you need to create a dedicated workspace at home. The layout and design of this space should prioritize comfort and inspire productivity. Choose ergonomic furniture that promotes good posture and supports your back, neck and wrists.

Layer lighting so you can adjust brightness levels as needed. Allow natural light to pour in, which serves as a mood enhancer. Control glares with blinds or curtains. Utilize a desk lamp when you need a direct light source. If you spend a lot of time at the computer, consider using a monitor light bar to reduce eye strain.

Add warmth and joy to your home office with photos, favorite artwork and a variety of plants. Incorporate shades of blue in your decor; research suggests that the color blue promotes productivity and creativity.

For the Ultimate Host

If you enjoy entertaining guests, focus your redecorating efforts on creating a welcoming space that is comfortable for large and small gatherings. For indoor entertaining, set up flexible seating and balanced lighting to achieve your desired party vibe. Create an easy flow between rooms. Make space at the entryway to neatly store coats and other outerwear. Keep extra party supplies in your pantry or a dining cart for quick replenishment.

For the Responsible Renter

Your decorating choices do not have to be limited just because you are renting. Use materials that allow you to infuse your style without sacrificing your security deposit. Hang photos, artwork and other wall decor using picture hanging strips. Splash color on the walls with a fun peel-and-stick wallpaper pattern.

If you have a yard, you might also take steps to improve the appearance of your home while also upgrading your own health by starting a garden. And if you don’t have much of a green thumb yet, no worries; you can visit to get plenty of tips and free advice from the experts.

For the House or Apartment Hunter

Despite your best efforts, you may find that your current living space cannot meet your needs and decide it’s time to move on. As you begin looking through online rental listings, narrow your search so you only view properties that suit your needs. You can filter search results by price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and must-have amenities like an in-unit washer and dryer.

Let your lifestyle needs guide you as you redecorate and reorganize your living space, whether you’re revamping your decor or home office or sprucing up your backyard (and your diet) with a new garden. If your current location no longer works for you, direct your search to include compatible rental properties. Your home needs to be a place that enables you to live your best life.
