Starting off the New Year with a deep clean of your house is a long held tradition for many homeowners, and it’s the perfect opportunity to reassess your priorities and have a well-needed clear out.
If you’re looking to freshen up your abode in 2023, then we’ve compiled a list of ideas to help you create a brand-new feeling in your home this spring.
1. Get a New Bed
We all know what that fresh bedding feeling is like, and the great night’s sleep that follows. But how would you feel about getting yourself a brand-new bed? Research has shown that the average person spends around 9,000 hours in bed during their lifetime. For such a huge chunk of time, you want to be sure that your bed is your safe space!
Companies like Archers Sleepcentre can help you find the bed that best fits your lifestyle and personal aesthetic without breaking the bank.
2. Give the Place a Lick of Paint
Painting your house can hugely change the look of your house. Not only are you changing the color palette, but changing the paint can also help to make a room look bigger (if it’s a smaller room) or more cozy (if it’s a bigger room).
You can use websites like Dulux to browse their virtual color palette to find the best colors for your home.
3. Clear Out Your Clutter
Having a good clear out of your unloved items is a great way to sweep a breath of fresh air through your home.
Not only will it make your rooms look bigger and clear out some of your storage space for the items that really need it, but it will help you to keep your house cleaner.
If you want to clear out your belongings, why not consider donating them to charities like The British Heart Foundation? They can schedule a free collection for your furniture, and you can drop bags of smaller items at their high street branches.
4. Add Some Character with Some Art
It’s a well-known fact that art can help to add character to a room, and so selecting art that really reflects your personality can bring rooms to life.
Whether you opt for traditional copies of famous artwork like the Mona Lisa, or Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, picking interesting and tasteful art can also be a talking point for dinner parties, and also add definition to your walls, especially if you opt for plain painted walls instead of wallpaper.
5. Buy Some New Furniture
Sometimes changing up the furniture in your home can produce an entirely new outlook in your rooms.
Whether you want to repurpose your furniture, swap rooms, or donate it to be loved by someone new, you could also purchase new furniture if you want to change the theme of your home, or make it match your new decor.
