If you’re home feels lived in and worn, then it may be time to implement some of these tips, which are sure to make your home feel like brand new again.
Deep clean the kitchen
A sparkling, shining kitchen is a great place to start if you want to take your home from drab to fab. It’s usually an area can goes through the most wear and tear, which can easily show on appliances, floors, and countertops. Enjoy your kitchen again by giving it the care it deserves.
Wash down windows
Sure, you clean the obvious surfaces throughout your home on a semi-weekly basis—tabletops, mantles, bathroom counters—but it’s those often overlooked spots where the grime can really add up, the windows especially. Give your windows some love by using glass cleaner to get rid of any marks or smudges.
Consider a decor switch-up
The most obvious solution to making your home feel new? Switching up your decor choices. You could make little adjustments in various rooms, or you could really go all out in one specific area. Anything from a color palette change to putting different accent pieces on display can elevate your space to brand-new status.
Don’t forget the exterior
Take a good look at your yard … what kind of shape is it in? It may be winter, but you can still make it look presentable. If you’d rather wait until later months to make any changes (especially if you live in colder climates), at least make note of the areas that need some extra TLC.
Invest in certain areas
How are the bathroom towels holding up? What about baking sheets, cutlery, small appliances, lampshades, and the like? Check these particular items (and similar ones) to see if any are in need of fixing, or simply replacing. Keeping things like this in good condition is one way to ensure a spotless home that always feels like new.
Your home should be a place to relax in at the end of a long day. Keep this advice in mind for when it’s starting to feel anything but.
