7 Ideas To Help You Freshen Up Your Home

At this time of year, it’s safe to say that we can all get a little bit tired. We’re waiting for winter to end, for the weather to warm up, and for the days to get that little bit brighter too. And when you’re waiting for this to happen, it can really feel like you’re waiting forever. At the same time, it really does start to impact on your mood. And not only can this make you feel physically tired, but you may also find that it makes you restless. You can get bored with your usual routines, how you spend your free time, and even with you home - and when that’s the case, you’re going to want to take action.

You should find that working to freshen up your home can help. Because when it’s cold and dark and depressing outside, you can really light up your life with your home itself. If you haven’t had a refresh in awhile, then this is definitely going to be something that you could benefit from as well as enjoy doing. And the best part is, that you don’t have to spend an awful lot of money to do it. Some of these ideas are going to be really affordable too. So, if you’re itching to make a change and really brighten up your life, let’s look at seven ideas that can help you to freshen up your home in the process.

Change The Furniture Around

First of all, you’re going to want to think about the way your current furniture is presented. Because when you’ve had it the exact same for a long period of time, it will start to look tired. And it really can be a simple solution to freshening up the space. By moving everything around and even changing pieces between rooms too, you could find that your home gets the new lease of life that you’ve been looking for.

Declutter

At the same time, if your home is full of clutter, then it’s going to impact on how you feel. Your mind is likely to feel very cluttered too. So, a good declutter is going to be in order. By getting rid of anything that you no longer need or use, or donating it to charity, you’re going to be able to free up some space and make sure that everything is much more organized too. This always helps your home to feel fresh.





Paint A Wall

Sometimes, you just need to bring a bit of color into your home. But to paint the entire place, you’re looking at a big (and sometimes expensive) job. So don’t do that, just pick one wall instead. By working in an accent wall, not only is it a really fun feature, but it allows you to add some color and life in a really small way.

Replace The Soft Furnishings

But that’s not the only option you have to work in color. A really simple and effective way to brighten up your home is to work with soft furnishings. With curtains, cushions, rugs and more, you can really change the look of a room. it’s also a simple way to bring in small pops of color too.

Upcycle Your Furniture


If you’re starting to think that your old furniture has seen better days, and you want it to look and feel a bit more in line with what you’re trying to create, then why not upcycle it? By giving it a new lease of life (and a bit of paint), you should find that you’re able to create a better look for the space, and in an affordable way.




Invest In New Pieces

Sometimes, there won’t be much that you can do for your old furniture. And if you’ve managed to save on just about anything else, then you’ll definitely want to think about investing in other ways. And that will be to invest in new pieces. Not only may you want to improve your bed but you may also want to upgrade the dining table. And by bringing in only a few things new, you’re still doing it cost-effectively.

Focus On The Atmosphere

Finally, you’re going to want to work on the overall look and feel of your home. Open up those curtains, let in some more light, light some candles and play some music. These are all very small touches, but they can also go along way. By focusing on the atmosphere, you’ll be surprised by how you can change how you feel about your home.

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO...
