As a close runner up to eating healthily and exercising more, home improvement has got to be up there as one of the most popular new year’s resolutions, and for good reason!
After all, what’s more satisfying than starting a brand-new year by freshening up your home environment? And with so many of us spending way more time at home than ever right now, 2021 is the perfect year to smash this resolution.
If you’re stuck for inspiration or are simply unsure on where to start, here are a few great home improvement resolution ideas to suit any budget or level of expertise!
Declutter. No matter what your interior design goals are for the new year, decluttering is a great place to start. After all, having a blank canvas to work on always makes life a little easier. And let’s face it, there’s nothing more satisfying than getting rid of all that junk and starting afresh for the new year.
Clean. Because it’s never too early for a little Spring cleaning! Once you’ve finished decluttering, the natural and equally as rewarding next step is to clean your home from top to bottom. So, if you’re looking for a sign, here it is! Invest in some new supplies, put on your favorite playlist and get to work.
Personalize your bedroom. Your bedroom is arguably the most important room in your home, serving as your sanctuary and inspiring you to rest at the end of even the busiest days. In that spirit, making your bedroom perfect for you is 100% a worthwhile venture. And the good news is that your bedroom can truly be whatever you want it to be, even if you live with housemates or family. Add some green, air purifying plants for a relaxed, boho vibe or accessorize with cushions or throws for the ultimate cosy retreat – the world is your oyster!
Create an inspiring workspace. If you’ve found yourself working from home more recently, setting up a designated workspace could be the perfect home improvement resolution for you. Even when working from home, maintaining work-life balance is crucial, and having an assigned area for ‘work’ can really help with this. Make sure your workspace invites you to spend time there by adding personal, motivational touches. I’m talking inspirational quotes, pretty prints, plants or even something as simple as a comfortable chair.
Switch up your color scheme. Always fancied adding a splash of color to one (or more than one!) of your rooms? Why not take the new year as an opportunity to change things round a little? If you’re unsure about taking the plunge, try incorporating some new accessories in your chosen color palette and, if you like it, add in a fresh new feature wall to brighten up your home.
