DEEP CLEAN AND DECLUTTER
This will mentally prepare you for change, and your living space will thank you! Nothing brings you down like clutter, so remove the junk and start with a fresh slate!
BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Houseplants are not only pretty to look at, they have many health benefits as well. They help you relax, remove toxins from the air and help the overall aesthetic feel more grounded and fresh.
ADORN YOUR WALLS
Hang a large piece of wall art to bring visual interest to a room. Add a mirror and get more light bouncing around the room and can make a small space seem bigger. Or go all out and put it all together with an interesting and unique gallery wall.
SWITCH OUT THE LIGHTS
A fresh update of lighting fixtures can truly change the vibe of a space. Also, adding table and floor lamps helps light flood your room from different heights and angles.
PUT A PILLOW ON IT
Accessorizing with thrown pillows always adds a cozy element to any space. Throw them on beds, benches, chairs and even the floor. It is an inexpensive way to modernize the space or help a room take on a new look.
THROW DOWN A RUG
A rug is one of the easiest ways to give structure to a space and define living areas. Adding an area rug helps anchor all of the furniture in a room, and as an added bonus, feels amazing on your toes! Layer multiple rugs in one space or opt for a striking pattern to add some visual interest.
LET YOUR WINDOWS PLAY DRESS UP
Window treatments can do wonders for a room’s appearance. For a quick makeover in minutes, switch out your curtain panels and why not change the shower curtain while you are at it!
REARRANGE WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE
Whenever you feel a room getting stale, move everything around! By simply changing the location of your existing items, you can make your whole home feel completely new.
SHOW OFF YOUR COLLECTION
Centralize your collections in one spot so that you and visitors can truly enjoy the items you love. Have more than one stockpile of your favorite animal? Switch out the items every once in a while and see who notices.
SOOTHE THE SENSES
Scents have a profound effect on a person’s mood. Infusing your space with diffusers, candles, fresh cut plants/flowers or incense can change the overall feeling of a space.
MAKE YOUR BED
Simply changing the duvet cover, throw pillows or side table accessories can make your room feel like a luxury hotel in no time.
