In this article, we will explain how to make these changes most smoothly and efficiently so that you will not feel this is too heavy a burden.
So now that we've made a brief introduction to the nature of seasonal design styles And we explained our unique input, It's time to review the ways to help you transition from one seasonal design to another a lot more smoother.
1. Step by step.
One of the problems with seasonal changes design is the misconception that it is possible and even preferred to enforce things/changes and finish with everything quickly. But unfortunately - this is not the way things work! On the contrary - a gradual change will be much more appropriate in most cases.
This insight is super relevant in the context of our topic - a seasonal design change will be much smoother if done gradually and calculatedly than with complete suddenness.
'And how do you do that?' You're probably asking.
Well, As the well-known saying goes - take it slow.
Create a timeline about how things are supposed to change gradually and slowly.
There is no point in jumping on the bandwagon and applying all those seasonal changes In a flash. Do things in a graded manner and stay motivated! If you choose to speed things up, you will quit too soon because there is indeed a lot to do.
Do things in a graded manner and stay motivated!
Some tips on how to make such a change gradually.
Plan a schedule that will help you with the design change process. Do not wait until the last minute. You must understand what you need to do and what exactly is required, and accordingly, plan your schedules most comfortably and efficiently.
Remember! "A little every day" is worth - in the end, in the context of quality, much more than - "lots at the last minute."
And this is without even mentioning the main goal - making the process simpler.
Engage in changes that are not significant and do not require particularly massive action.
For example, Suppose you follow the well-planned and convenient schedules discussed above. In that case, all you need is a light effort in replacing 'summer accessories' with ''winter accessories' (as explained regarding the design characteristics of each season) rather than an action that requires a lot of work and energy, such as repainting the house.
Even if you have started a significant design change action, try as much as possible to do it in a graded way that will only partially exhaust you. Our recommendation is to divide the effort required into smaller parts.
2. Ideal timing.
Let's face it. Despite our best efforts, avoiding some inconveniences in the seasonal design change process is impossible. Indeed, there will be actions that we will be required to do that will burden us no matter how much we try to lighten the process.
A great way to deal with this is to know how to schedule things beneficially.
For example, if you notice that it's time for a significant renovation in your house, schedule it for the transition period. This way, you will gain two things simultaneously - You will also carry out your renovation and, at the same time, perform the design action required for the seasonal design change (By the way, you can read more here about how to renovate your home without going crazy).
timing is everything!
This way, you can ideally (and more importantly - smoothly) deal with the most considerable difficulty in seasonal design turnover - Big changes.
3. Focus on the simple things.
An ancient Chinese scholar once said, "Focus on the simple things."
If you've to rub your head in skepticism right now, it's because you're right - no Chinese scholar has ever said such a quote. We invented it right now. But the principle is still solid - usually, doing ten simple and small things is much easier than one massive task.
It's all about the little things!
Now take this principle and apply it when you change your home's seasonal home design.
Please start with the simple things: bedding/scattering pillows for the house that will give it a warm look / changing fabrics/scattering bowls of the relevant seasonal fruits / adjusted seasonal scents/matching of indoor vegetation pertinent to the desired season. All these and more (and we refer you again to the links above, which expand further on this matter) - are small and simple changes (which are very different, for example, from a complete painting of the house or construction to a fireplace, which are complex operations) That will help you a lot in your efforts to change your home's seasonal design gradually and, most importantly, to do it smoothly. Think about it for a moment, one small change and another small change and another, without you putting too much effort into making them - in the end, they will lead to a significant result and a big difference - and that is your ultimate goal - to do everything smoothly.
Breaking large tasks into more manageable pieces is a great idea for other areas of life, not just home design. You can read more about it here.
4. Reinvent yourself.
One of the most powerful tools you can use whenever you want to create something new is to link it to your personal development.
Look, at the end of the day, the instinct of personal growth lies within us by being human. Therefore, if you make the right decision daily of wanting to get better and develop - this desire can advance you in many other areas of life, and designing your home is just one of them.
"How is that relevant to our subject?', you probably ask.
Well, nowadays, we know the importance of doing something new daily. The feeling of freshness and renewal obtained by doing so is significant and helps the person's peace of mind.
Try to directly link changing your home-season design to this desirable feeling of renewal.
Thank us later.
After all, redesign is supposed to be an exciting action. A sense of refreshment and renewal accompanies the transition from season to season, and there is nothing more communicative with a sense of personal development and growth than this. Therefore, linking the two will be a significant boost in making the seasonal transition smoother.
It will help increase your motivation when it comes to making the course of design change smoother - and that is the whole purpose of our article.
