How To Spruce Up Your Home For The New Year

With the new year upon us, a lot of people will start making, and probably breaking, their resolutions for the year. Most will vow to lose weight, work out more, eat healthier, and spend less money. Instead of focusing on a difficult resolution, use this time to spruce up and revamp your house. Doing so will help you become more organized and free up some space, which ultimately might help you reach some of your resolutions that you failed to keep in the past.

Setting obtainable goals for your home will result in a cleaner, efficient, and beautiful space that will last through the years. First, it's important to make a list. Here, you can plan out the tasks you want to complete in advance. This will give you a clear idea of what you want to have done within a certain time frame. You can go back to the list regularly and check off items that were completed, giving you a sense of accomplishment.

Some tips on how you can spruce up your house this year include:

Upgrade your mudroom or entryway- instead of leaving these areas to become cluttered spaces and a noticeable eyesore, work on making them more inviting. You could add a splash of color, some seating, a bold accent table with decor, or add storage for coats and shoes.

Create a cozy bedroom- Sleep is important. Turn your bedroom into a relaxing space by upgrading your bedding, adding a new shade of color on the wall, and adding in some more lighting and greenery.

Create a distinct workspace- If you are still working from home, make sure you are not working in your bedroom or at the kitchen table. Create a designated space in the house for a simple office nook. Add some decor or a small flower arrangement and make this new space your own.

Reorganize your bookshelves- Have your bookshelves become more and more cluttered over the years? Now is the time to take back the shelves. Donate books you are no longer interested in keeping and add some trendy decor or picture frames to brighten up the space.

Add more plants- Did you know plants can help boost your mood? Not only that, but they are great for adding personality and style to any room of your home.

Add in more patterns- Transform your space and revamp any room in your home by adding bold new colors and patterns.

Work on organizing- There are so many organizational products out there to make any room in your home less cluttered, as well as make it easier to access and find things. Baskets, clear bins, and wire shelves will help make spaces more functional and appealing. Use labels on bins to help you find what you are looking for quickly.

Paint- Maybe what your home needs is a fresh new splash of color. If you are thinking of revamping certain spaces in your home, you'd be surprised at how much a new coat of color can do.

Wallpaper- Yes, wallpaper is not really that trendy anymore. However, peelable wallpaper is becoming more and more popular. You could add an accent wall to any room in your home to spruce it up and make it stand out.

Add more natural light- Natural light can help improve your mood.
