Whether you’ve just moved into a new home or have been living in the same place for years, there’s always something that can be done to give your space some extra love and attention. Not sure where to start? Here are 6 easy ways to give your home some TLC that won’t break the bank.
1) Declutter and Organize - One of the quickest and most impactful ways to give your home a refresh is by doing a deep clean and decluttering. Studies have shown that tidying up can help reduce anxiety, improve focus, and bring clarity into your life. It can also make it easier to find what you need when you need it. Spend an afternoon going through each room of your home, sorting your items into keep/donate/trash piles, and then get organizing!
2) Make Small Updates - Small updates like replacing cabinet hardware or changing out light fixtures can make a big difference in how a room looks without requiring a full-on renovation. If you don’t want to spend money on new hardware, consider giving existing pieces a coat of spray paint for an instant update.
3) Clean Up the Exterior - A little landscaping goes a long way when it comes to sprucing up the exterior of your home. Plant shrubs or flowers near walkways or around windows, mow the lawn regularly, trim hedges and trees, add mulch around flower beds, sweep driveways and sidewalks – these are all great ways to give your property an instant boost with minimal effort (and cost).
4) Change Your Color Palette - Painting walls is an inexpensive way to completely change up any room in minutes. Choose colors that are calming yet energizing; blues and greens are popular choices these days as they promote relaxation while still being invigorating enough for everyday life. If painting isn't an option for you right now, consider adding pops of color through throw pillows, blankets or other accessories like area rugs or wall art so that you can easily switch things up as needed throughout the year.
5) Add Some Greenery - Plants add life and energy into any space – plus they help purify air which is great if you suffer from allergies or asthma! If you don’t have much of a green thumb (no judgement!) opt for low maintenance plants like succulents or even faux plants – these look just as good but require less upkeep so they won't die on you!
6) Let There Be Light - Natural sunlight is incredibly important when it comes to brightening up any space – so open those curtains! If natural light isn’t really an option in certain parts of your home, then try using lamps or spotlights instead. Warm white bulbs create inviting spaces while cool white bulbs work better for task lighting such as reading nooks or study areas. Don’t forget about scented candles too; they can really set the mood in any room!
