Have you looked around and thought that you need a fresh start? New beginnings can be great, but you can fall back in love with your home with a few simple steps.
Remove Clutter: Get rid of all of the things that clutter up your home. You have lived there for a while, so you have probably collected a lot of things, but never got rid of what you had. Go through and get rid of anything that doesn’t compliment you or your home.
Rearrange: A simple thing such as rearranging your furniture can make a huge difference to your home. Open your rooms up, put furniture where you think it will never work and maybe even repurpose your rooms to give it a whole new look. It will be like moving into a new home all over again!
Fix the Little Things: Do you come into your home and tell yourself you need a new doorknob? Or every time you walk past your pictures, there is always that one crooked one? Fix them! Most small things cost next to nothing and only a few minutes of your time. These small distractions can open up the beauty in your home.
Add Some Green: Add some plants and flowers to your home. Air purifying plants are a great addition to any room. Adding life to your house helps bring a little nature inside when you need it.
Add a Part of You: Of course it is your home and it is probably made up of a lot of pieces of you, but add another part of you. Add something that you absolutely love. If there is a piece of art you have been putting off buying because of the price tag or something in the attic you admire when you put the Christmas decorations away but never had a home for it, place it for all to see. Surround yourself with things you love and your home will come alive.
