14 Ordinary rooms that people used their DIY skills to turn into works of art

July 2nd, 2020

Our homes are our sanctuaries. They should be a place where we can go for peace and relaxation. Therefore, it’s important that we create a space that gives us just that.

It’s a proven fact that everything from the colors to a room to the amount of “clutter” in it, affects our mood. For example, according to Psychology Today, there are 8 reasons why clutter causes stress. Some of these reasons include anxiety, frustration, and even the inability to create.

What it comes down to is, physical clutter creates mental clutter.

Like cluttered rooms, the color of the room creates certain moods as well. Darker colors can make a room feel smaller while lighter and lighter colors can make a room appear larger and brighter. In addition, every color brings about different feelings and moods.

With that being said, it’s important to take your time when decorating your rooms. While it can certainly feel overwhelming, it can also be fun. But don’t take our word for it, check out some of these 14 rooms that reflect their homeowners’ individual personalities.
