5 Simple Ways to Refresh Your Home for the New Year
One of the best ways to start off the New Year is to refresh your living space. Whether it be an apartment, a home, or a studio – reorganizing, decluttering, and redecorating can help revitalize your energy for the New Year. There’s no need to remodel your entire home to refresh your space, all you need to do is make a few small changes, like invest in a new area rug for the living room or wallpaper your bathroom. Here are 5 easy ways to refresh your home for the New Year.
Declutter your home.
Decluttering your home can be a daunting task but it doesn’t need to happen all in one day. Start with one room at a time. Make a schedule and dedicate a Saturday or Sunday to declutter a room in your house. In a couple of months your home will begin to feel clean, organized, and refreshed.
Invest in a new area rug.
A new area can make a huge difference in a space. Invest in a new area rug for your living room, bedroom, dining room, or wherever you feel it’s necessary. Try a different color, pattern, or texture – something that will upgrade the look and feel of your room.
Rearrange your furniture.
Sometimes a new layout can make your home feel good as new. Move an accent chair to the other side of the room or move a bookcase to another room. Check out pinterest for layout inspirations and play around with your space to find a new layout for the new year.
Paint or wallpaper a room.
If one of the rooms in your home is starting to look out of style or is beginning to feel like it’s getting dark and dingy, try repainting the walls a brighter and lighter color or wallpaper a wall or all walls to bring more life into the space.
Switch out old light fixtures.
Light fixtures are often overlooked, but a new light fixture can transform the overall style and ambience of the space. Replace a light fixture that you feel looks out of date or you didn’t even realize was still there – chances are that if you forgot about it then it’s not making an impact on your décor.
