A Simple Guide To Refreshing Your Home for The New Year By Coley Edwards, Senior Designer, Designed 2 Sell Home Staging

Do any of your rooms need a refresh or a complete overhaul? The beginning of the year is the perfect time to start! 

Clearing the Canvas

Let's kick off the year by simplifying. Begin your home refresh by decluttering and organizing your living spaces, especially the common areas. Get rid of unnecessary items, creating a clean and organized environment. Donate or recycle items you no longer use anymore.

A Pallete of Change 

A fresh coat of paint can instantly transform a room, in the best way possible! Choose calming or neutral colors to create a serene environment or vibrant hues for an energy boost. Revamp with new throw blankets, pillows, and greenery to set the tone for a stylish space!

Illuminating Ideas

Brighten up your home with strategic lighting, which plays a crucial role in setting the mood for a room. Consider updating light bulbs from cool light to warm light hues, adding a bit of a softer tone. Floor lamps mediate the room height in the sense of bringing contrasting elements together. For example, floor lamps can draw the eye upwards and give the impression of higher ceilings while regular lamps serve the basic purpose of lighting a room. Lighting is the key to a stylish and inviting atmosphere. 

Organized and Chic

Upgrade your storage solutions with functional and stylish pieces. Invest in multipurpose furniture like ottomans with hidden storage or bookshelves that also add a touch of sophistication to your home. This not only helps in organizing your belongings but also adds a touch of decor to your home as well.

Tech-Free Retreat

In a world buzzing with screens, designate a space where you can unplug and unwind. This could be a reading corner, yoga room, or simply enjoying a cup of coffee in your sunroom without the constant bother of technology. This has been a proven way to relax, reduce stress, and promote a sense of calmness and tranquility. 

Personalized Touches

Make your house uniquely yours. Infusing your house with touches that inhibit your personality will only make it feel more like home. Display meaningful photos, art, or souvenirs that describe you. Creating a space that reflects your identity will make you feel more connected with your home. 

Kitchen and Bath Elegance

Small changes in the kitchen and baths can make a significant impact. Enhancing the hardware on cabinets may appear subtle, yet it significantly elevates the overall design and color palette of the entire room. Upgrading towels and rugs constitutes a transformative step in revitalizing any space, imparting a significant and positive impact on its overall ambiance.

In conclusion, A Stylish New Beginning

As you embark on this journey to refresh your home, know that Designed 2 Sell is here to guide you every step of the way. By decluttering, organizing, and infusing personalized touches, you begin a transformative process that enhances the physical aspects of your home. A new stylish beginning awaits – a chapter filled with simplicity, style, and the joy of making your home uniquely yours. Here’s to a new year and a fresh, stylish home!
