Moving into a new home brings so much excitement, however over time, the novelty starts to wear off and the love that you once felt for your home can easily wear thin. With the longer nights at this time of year, interiors can be seen most often with the lights on. Whether you feel stuck in a rut, that your home is worn and tired, or that your space is no longer inspiring, there are plenty of simple things you can do to revamp your home to get the magic back. Here’s how to fall in love with your home again and rekindle your relationship with your house.
One of the best ways to refresh your love for your home is to declutter. Over the years it’s easy to collect items that you never end up using as well as general clutter, so set aside a day to have a big clear-out and tackle your clothes, storage closets, kitchen cupboards, garage, and any other area that generally feels disorganized. Decluttering will help to make your space feel clean and fresh, plus you’ll have extra space for other items.
Another simple way to fall in love with your home again is to create storage. If you’re feeling uninspired, custom storage solutions may make you feel excited about your home, especially if you think outside the box and get creative. Think about getting built-in storage under the staircase, a custom closet, or investing in smart furniture such as a storage bed.
If you’re looking to give your home a full overhaul, why not complete a few simple renovations? Start planning the kitchen reno that you’ve been thinking about for all those months, or replace key fixtures in your bathroom to update your space without a huge investment. Consider knocking down a wall to create a more open plan space, extending your kitchen, renovating your yard to create an extra living area, or transforming your basement into a bedroom, office, or entertainment hub.
Sometimes, all it takes to fall in love with your home again is some fresh decor and a coat of paint. If your walls are looking a bit worn, invest in a whole new colour scheme or if in doubt, opt for off-white for a clean look. Update your curtains, cushions and rugs, and other accessories to complement the new decor to revamp your home on a budget.
