If your home has just flooded, it can be hard to look on the bright side, but having home flood insurance can be the silver lining you’re looking for. On the plus side, you get the chance to rebuild and switch some things around. Finding something to be happy about is one of the most important things you can do when you’re faced with a stressful situation in life. Here are a few tips:
- Always disliked the boring white walls that were in the family room in your basement? Now’s the time to switch it up. Sticking to greens and blues is helpful if you’re looking to create a relaxing vibe; oranges and yellows work best to get you going and promote you to be creative.
- Consider how you use the space and make the most of it. If you previously had windows that opened horizontally and never liked it, bring in windows that open vertically. Similarly, if you never liked the way the chairs were laid out, the opportunity to mix it up a bit is right in front of you.
- Decorate with the things that make you happy. Instead of associating a room with flood damage, you’ll begin to feel more positive if you’ve got pictures of loved ones, souvenirs from a favorite trip, or the succulent your significant other got you.
It can be tempting to let the overwhelming feelings that occur when your home is damaged take over, but thankfully, you don’t have to. With home flood insurance from Better Flood Insurance, you could save 20-50% on your flood premiums.
