When your home starts lacking in life, it can make coming home a bit of a chore.
Instead of just dealing with that and taking it for what it is, you can make changes to your house to bring it back from breaking point!
If cleaning is the problem, a simple Cleaning app can help you sort out someone to clean the house, but sometimes that just isn’t enough. If it’s time for you to start making some real changes around the house to bring it back to life and make it start feeling like a home again.
However, if you don’t know where to start, then here are 5 tips that can help you bring your home back from breaking point.
Sort through everything
If you find your house packed up with things you haven’t used in ages, it may be time to take everything out and have a good old fashioned clean up. Sort through any old clothes or decorations, put away what you do want and set aside what you don’t.
To turn it into a fun activity, try getting a group of friends to do the same so you can all have a huge garage sale. Don’t limit yourself to small things either, feel free to get rid of any furniture you feel you or your house may have outgrown.
Set a budget
Making changes to your house can become a very expensive project if you don’t have a plan.
If you make a budget plan for each room you’ll save yourself heaps of time and money. Having a budget written out before any of the changes start can help you from making split second random purchases and keep you following a list so you don’t go over budget.
When changing things around, don’t be shy with how you want it to look.
Get creative, try out different colours and styles, and shop around for new furniture too. Make sure you keep your own personal touch to the home so it still feels like your own. Search around for inspiration online and try creating some things by yourself. Buy some paint and get handy with it, it’s your home after all.
Set a theme
Once you’ve looked around and gotten inspired by different styles that other people have used, choose a theme for the look of your home. Having a theme will help the place look more organised and visually pleasing, rather than looking like you’ve just thrown together a bunch of different things to make a change.
Write a plan
The key to any successful change, especially when it comes to redecorating your house, is to have a plan. Write down what you want from the change; include styles and colours, even ideas for decorations into the plan. Write the plan on a room by room basis so you know how to approach each room when it comes down to it so you’re not left with a stressful mess.
When making huge changes to your home, it can be a time consuming project.
However, don’t let time get in the way of your motivation; it will all be worth it in the end.
When making huge changes it’s important to remember that in the end the house is yours, and with everything you choose, every change you make needs to suit you and reflect your personality and individuality. If you’re having a hard time getting through the project on your own, ask some friends to help you out with it and turn it into a social event.
