With the new year fast approaching, now’s the time to reflect on the last 12 months and celebrate with family and friends. It’s also the perfect opportunity to come up with a few goals to start anew this coming January, whether that involves following a regimented workout plan, getting more involved in charitable work or trying a new hobby that pushes you outside of your comfort zone.
While those new year’s resolutions are great options to consider, why not focus on creating a more wholesome and comfortable living space instead? There are plenty of simple yet impactful home decor-inspired new year’s goals that can help you turn your house into a home in no time.
Give these interior design-friendly resolutions for the new year:
1. Get rid of the clutter once and for all
Don’t worry — we’ve all been there. A year goes by and your closet is somehow filled to the brim with clothes you haven’t worn in months, children’s toys that don’t belong and just about everything in between. Set aside some time to donate what you don’t need and reorganize the rest.
2. Create a weekly cleaning schedule
Getting rid of clutter isn’t always the problem — maintaining the cleanliness can be the difficult part. As the new year approaches, get a new calendar, bulletin board or another organizational tool that will help you create a weekly reorganizing and cleaning schedule to avoid the big messes at the end of the year.
3. Commit to seasonal redecorating
Perhaps cleanliness isn’t a problem for you. Maybe your home is simply lacking character and could use a stylistic facelift. If you find yourself sliding through the seasons without skipping a beat in your house, it’s time to get excited about the holidays again. Seasonal decor is a simple way to break up the months throughout the year and give your living space a fresh feel.
4. Add a new entertainment element to your home
Your living space shouldn’t only be a place for you and your family to retreat after a long day of busy schedules. It should be a place where you can welcome guests with open arms to celebrate late nights, weekends and holidays.
5. Restyle your shelves
When you’re feeling inspired and excited to change things up in your home, something that’s often overlooked is your shelves. When was the last time you restyled them? This is a simple task that can completely transform a room. A new slew of books, artwork and accessories can bring this space to life when you’re dying for a change.
