The brand-new year is just around the corner! For sure, most of you have already come up with your New Year’s resolutions. Many promise to live a healthier lifestyle by exercising more and eating right. Some plan to travel to other countries to experience more of the world. Others commit to enriching their lives by learning new things.
If you basically have the same resolutions, it’s well and good, but it could still be better. For 2021, consider making improvements in your home as well. After all, your home is the place where you rest, sleep, relax, do the things you love, and bond with your family.
Take a look at three simple ways you can make significant improvements in your home come 2021.
Add key features to your home
There might be something missing in your home that would truly make it a place of comfort and convenience for you, so add that key piece or two. You can, for one, bring in new technology to your home. Maybe you and your significant other toss and turn at night. This could be because of the uncomfortable bed temperature, so get a BedJet machine that’ll create two temperature zones, one for each of you, in the bed. Or perhaps going to the gym during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is really making you anxious. Then, why not buy a state-of-the-art home gym equipment like the NordicTrack RW900 Rowing Machine to make staying fit and active more convenient for you? Of course, the missing key feature doesn’t have to be a tech device. It could be that all you ever needed were potted plants strategically placed inside your home.
Rearrange your home furniture
Without buying anything, you can give your home a fresh look and feel by simply moving your furniture around. Does it, for example, feel like you’re making your way through a maze just to get from the front door to the dining room? Maybe the sofa and the coffee table are in the way, so move them around a bit to create a clear path between those two areas. If your home office desk is facing out a window, place it perpendicular to the window instead. This way, you’ll avoid the glare from the sunlight coming through the window but still enjoy the natural light coming in and the refreshing view outside whenever you turn to look out the window. When it comes to moving your bed to a new location, you might want to apply the feng shui principle of commanding positions to invite positive energy.
Keep your home tidy
Sometimes all it takes to significantly improve a home is to keep it clean and orderly. You’d be surprised at how a little scrubbing here and there and putting away some of your stuff could make a huge difference in your home. Start with decluttering your home. Throw away stuff that are no longer useful, put away things you still want but don’t use at the moment, and donate items you don’t want yet are still useful. Next, neatly organize whatever’s left of your stuff. When you’re done organizing, begin cleaning your home. You’ll want to dust things (e.g., books, furniture, and walls) first with a tack cloth, brush, or even a vacuum cleaner. Then, proceed to cleaning (and maybe even scrubbing) with water and soap to remove stubborn stains, which are mostly on the floor and the walls.
Give Your Home a New Look and Feel in 2021
Before the year 2020 ends, make sure you complete your New Year’s resolution list with a promise to make some improvements in your house. The changes don’t have to be big, as adding some features, moving your furniture around, and keeping your house tidy can already make your home look and feel new.
Happy New Year, everyone!
