3 Strategies for Refreshing Your Home

If your home feels dull or tired, it may be time to refresh. There are many tasks you can complete to revive your home. The following are three of the most impactful strategies.

1. Clean and Declutter

Starting with a clean canvas is a good idea. It doesn’t mean you have to get rid of everything. Donations or throwing away things you no longer want or need allows you to make space for essential items. You are clearing away excess and allowing necessary objects to shine.

If your home smells stale or mildewy, improve air quality. Remove mold growth, install air purifiers, and let in fresh air by opening windows and doors. Turn on fans to improve circulation.

2. Update

Once your home is clutter-free, you can begin updating your home. Small changes, such as rearranging furniture, may significantly impact a room. Add, change, or mix wall decorations to change the feel of a room. Consider using different light bulbs or exchanging lamps. Installing a dimmer switch allows you to adjust the amount of light based on the amount of natural light available and the amount of illumination needed.

Updating with accessories is an effective method of refreshing your home without spending too much money. If you like a particular trend, incorporate it into your accessories. This allows you to enjoy the current trends without making a considerable investment. Another way to update without long-term commitment is to try peel-and-stick wallpaper. You can purchase this in many different patterns and even have it custom printed to have the style you want without waiting for it to be in stock. You can even choose a wallpaper design from an artist across the globe, allowing you to select a truly unique print. The repositionable nature of this wallpaper makes this an ideal DIY project.

Don’t forget the exterior of your home. Revive landscaping by ensuring the yard is clean, neat, and trimmed—plant flowers to add a pop of color.

3. Improve

Depending on the improvements you want to make to your home, you may need to hire a professional. For example, most homeowners can complete outdoor upgrades, such as hanging a porch swing or laying paving stones. More complex projects, such as installing a patio cover from Alumawood, may require professional assistance. Investing in little kitchen luxuries, such as handy gadgets and durable cookware, makes the kitchen more efficient and the cook’s life a little easier. You can also add luxury to your bathroom, bedroom, and other home areas. New sheets and a powerful showerhead are minor investments likely to improve your daily life significantly.

If your home starts to feel dull, a quick refresh may be all it needs. Start by cleaning and work your way up to more involved projects.
