Easy ways to give your home a facelift this New Year.  

New Year, new you, new home! Although you may not have a home move planned for many years, there are many ways you can breath new life into your home. You can make it feel – and look – brand new without breaking the bank or doing huge renovations. Take a look at these tips to get you started.

Rearrange furniture

Do you find yourself getting bored with your home’s layout? Switch it up and move the furniture around. Move the TV to the other wall or place your coach on an angle. Push your bed into the middle of the wall and enjoy the fresh feeling of the new layout.


Now is a good a time as any to sort through your belongings and get rid of items you don’t want. Decide what you’ll do with items by sorting them into categories: Keep, Recycle, Donate, Throw Away.


You don’t have to go out and buy new art and décor to make your home look different. Instead, upcycle! This is where you give a new purpose to old items. Have an empty glass bottle lying around? Turn it into a soap dispenser. Got empty soup cans? Decorate them and turn them into cutlery holders.


Is there any better way to give a home a squeaky clean, sparkling look than giving it a deep clean? Pull out appliances to clean behind them, get the cobwebs on the ceiling, and scrub, mop, and polish until your home looks like new.
