Ideas for freshening up your home inside and out
Being a homeowner means you’re in charge of taking good care of your home; owning a property is a big investment so it makes sense you want to keep it looking as perfect as you can!
Here are some ideas for how you can freshen up your home inside and out:
Declutter Your Belongings
If you want to freshen up your home then it’s always good to begin by cutting the clutter. This is your chance to go through old boxes and drawers and get rid of what you no longer want or use. Now is also a good opportunity to tackle areas such as your loft and/or garage where you may tend to accumulate a lot of stuff. I find that I tend to put stuff away for ‘a later date’, then when I uncover it again I realise I will actually never use it. Vinted has been my best mate over the last year!
Work on the Landscaping
It’s also worth considering the outside look of your home; it’s your chance to make a good first impression on neighbours and onlookers. Planting Palmetto Grass in your garden can help with this, it’s durable and doesn’t require a lot of upkeep or maintenance on your part. There is little effort you must make to ensure it stays looking lush all year round. My favourite type of garden addition!
Replace Dated Lighting
The lighting in your home can have a big impact on the look and feel of your home. Better lighting solutions can also help boost your mood when you’re at home. Figure out which light fittings are dated and need replacing – you may also want to choose to put some lights on a dimmer switch so you can set the right mood when evening sets in.
Update Cabinets & Cupboards
Some of the most important rooms are kitchen and bathrooms. Instead of doing a full remodel there are minor updates you can make that will make a big difference. Focus time and energy on kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity units – consider putting a fresh coat of paint on these areas in an attractive colour. It’s a cost-effective way to make these rooms look more modern and attractive.
