Help your house be a Sanctuary

Florida continues to reopen. However, many people are still spending more time at home. “Our homes have grown to be more essential than ever,” says Ellsworth Buck, V . p . of Insurance, Florida's largest independent homeowners insurance agency.

Our homes have transformed, becoming classrooms, offices, gyms, entertainment centers and hospital rooms. In this challenging time, we're seeking to our homes to bring us a feeling of peace, as well as comfort and joy. But all that time in your house may have you feeling bored and uninspired.

Below are ways to make your house look and feel fresh, without spending much money or hiring a handyman.
