How to Give Your Home a Winter Refresh After the Holidays
Each year, we often reflect on the past and focus on resolutions we hope to achieve for the upcoming year. Once we have settled on certain goals and ambitions, it’s crucial that we also give our home a fresh start, too. There are several ways to make changes in your home without major renovations. Here are a few ways you can give your home a winter refresh after the holidays to bring a new life into your space!
It can be challenging to focus on goals when your space is cluttered and disorganized. One of the best ways to refresh your home in the winter is taking the time to go through your belongings and get rid of some unwanted items by discarding or donating them. After, organize everything in the appropriate storage bins, totes, or carts to allow for easy access. Going forward, you will be able to focus on your goals every day and not the clutter.
Another way to give a new life to your home is by changing your decorations. When you are taking down any decorations from Christmas, use this time to change things up. If you took a family photo down to replace it with a holiday-related decoration, don’t put that same frame back. Put up something different to change the space, such as a mirror. Making little changes with colors and textures throughout your space will make you feel rejuvenated. Find ideas for new home decor here.
Add Some Green
If you live somewhere with snow, being cooped up inside for months at a time can be discouraging when trying to reach goals. Bringing flowers, plants, and greenery into your space is a perfect way to revive it. Incorporate real plants, fake plants, or a mixture of both! When having real plants, specifically, more oxygen is released into the air and less harmful toxins. When this happens, you will be more relaxed and calm, allowing you to focus solely on the things you want to achieve.
Changing the furniture around in your home is another way you can alter your space to make it feel different. Move your bed to a different wall, change up the living room, put kitchen appliances away, or move them to a more fitting location. Use this as an opportunity to clean and use your space wisely. For instance, based on your resolutions, maybe you need an office space now. There are many creative ways to fit furniture into spaces for optimal function.
Making these kinds of changes will restore your home into a new light. Refreshing your space is the guide to accomplishing anything you want moving forward. Chip away at the small changes you wish to make, then make the focal point of your time, the goals you hope to achieve
