The new year is fast approaching and most people are thinking about making some appropriate home makeovers just in time before the guests arrive for parties and whatnot.
Making the right changes will require some knowledge about the right things to do. The good thing is that since you are reading this article, you will be guided accordingly.
Today, I am going to talk about some simple updates that you can make this year.
Use Some New Beddings
Since the new year is fast approaching, you may also want to have a fresh start, especially when it pertains to your bedsheet.
Completely changing your sheet covers is one thing that you can do before the new year as it helps mark a restorative new year, according to popular Chicago-based interior designer, Kara Mann.
Go Green with Some Low-Maintenance Plants
Whether you want an eco-friendly home or not, the use of low-maintenance plants can actually help improve the feel and aesthetics of your home overall.
Real plants can help produce more oxygen in your home, thus allowing you to breathe clean fresh air at all times. Opt for nearly-indestructible plants such as Jade or Peace Lily.
Give a New Paint Job
Want to immediately give your house a makeover? Repaint. Putting new paint on your walls will make it even more appealing than ever before. If that is not your thing, you can use wallpapers instead.
Keep Food Away
Although you can technically leave food in the dining table for easy access, Mann says that it is so much better (both aesthetically and sanitation-wise) to keep extra food stored for improved longevity.
Put them in glass canisters so that it will be much easier for you and your family to discern what food is stored inside.
Don’t Forget to Use Baskets and Bins
Baskets serve multiple purposes in that it can either be used as part of your home décor or you can use it to store your additional stuff (that should not be out there, visible in plain sight).
Fortunately, baskets are incredibly cheap and you can find them easily in flea markets or the home section of your favorite shopping mall.
Save the Environment by Ditching Plastics
Instead of opting for plastic cleaning materials, opt for natural ones such as wooden mops, wooden dish brushes, and even metal buckets.
Not only are they nice to look at (because they are organic) but you can also save the only planet we live in as well.
Everything that is going to be visible in plain sight should have a definite purpose. If it doesn’t serve anything- may it be for decorative purposes or a practical one- then it is best to leave it out of the picture.
Buy Cutesy Containers for Your Essentials
A neat home is an ideal one as it can help you find the things that you need quickly and easily. That being said, you can store all of your essentials in glass containers so that you can tuck them away easily.
