New year, new home? Or maybe just a refresh?
Here are 7 simple things you can do around your house to help it feel like a “new home” again:
- Rearrange Your Furniture
Look for another arrangement in a room that you spend a majority of your time in. Maybe that’s your living room. You won’t even need to spend a dime on this idea!
- Paint Something That You’re Not Too Fond Of
Maybe that’s a furniture piece, a wall, a decoration- but it will change up the look of the piece and your space!
- Switch Out a Light Fixture
We love looking for light fixtures to freshen up a space. Our favorite go-to stores are BBC Lighting downtown Milwaukee, All Modern, West Elm, and Wayfair.
- The Great Purge
Maybe watch a few episodes of Marie Kondo on Netflix first for a little bit of inspiration. But really, even if you just focus on one space in your home- a room, a shelf, a box… look through it and determine what to keep and what to toss, sell, or donate.
- Change Out Your Window Treatments
Amazon and Ikea have many affordable options when it comes to window treatments. Maybe pick out a new colored curtain, an updated curtain rod, or some new blinds.
Did you know that you should repaint your kitchen at least every 5 years, if not sooner? Fresh paint can go a long way and help to refresh a room and make it feel “new” again.
- Invest in a New Rug
Change up a rug in a room. Maybe go with something softer or with more pile for a cozy feel during those long winter months.
