Think back to when you first moved into your home. How did it feel with all those hopes and dreams for the future? And how about now? Once the early excitement fades, it’s natural to start wondering how to recapture that buzz. Thankfully, you don’t have to take any drastic action. Instead, a few little changes can be all it takes to help you fall back in love with your home:
1. Start Small
According to 2018 research, Brits spend £2000 on DIY, décor and repairs each year. There’s no need to splash out that much though. Small projects will add up over time to help revitalise the home you fell in love with at the beginning.
2. Clatter the Clutter
If you stop and think about everything lying around your home, you’ll soon notice how easily clutter builds up without you realising. Having a serious tidy up not only makes you feel better, but it could help you rediscover some of your home’s best spaces you might have forgotten about.
3. Window Dressing
Light makes a huge difference to how you feel about your home, whether it’s letting it in or keeping it out. The amazing range of curtains and blinds from Swift Direct Blinds can help you create a warm and inviting ambience in any room of your home. They’re great for adding flashes of colour too!
4. Get Your Fix
A squeaky door. A dripping tap. A wobbly shelf. These things and more can seem like nothing on the face of it. Over time, however, they start to nag at you and become really irritating. It’s amazing how quickly you can fall back in love with your home with a quick turn of a wrench or screwdriver.
5. The Sweet Smell of Success
Some things that make your home what it is are obvious. It’s the colours on the wall or the feel of your floors. But others are less in-your-face. How often do you think about scent? Candles, flowers or even fresh coffee revitalise a home like you wouldn’t believe!
Of course, here are just five of the many ways you can transform the place you live. No matter what you choose to do to help you fall back in love with your home, you’ll hopefully now see how it won’t take much planning, time or money to reignite your hopes and dreams for the future once again.
