New Beginnings: How To Give Your Home a Complete Makeover

With the holidays being over, January may seem like a very dull month with nothing to look forward to. Stripping down your festive decorations and all the sparkles can make your home seem rather unnatural and empty. That is why the first month of the new year may be the perfect time for a much needed home makeover. Giving yourself a project for those cold months will not only keep you busy, but it will also transform your house and give it a new look for the new year. 

Property experts from the online estate agent House Sales Direct have gathered a few ideas and easy ways for you to channel that ‘new year, new me’ energy by refreshing your home and preparing it for the other resolutions you may have set up for yourself. 

  1. Rearrange Furniture

A proven method to give a room a complete makeover is to rearrange the furniture. We often get too comfortable with how a room looks and feels like so why not change it up a bit? If you are tired of your room layout or if you simply wish to make some changes to your house, rearranging the furniture is the best possible way to do that. It has the ability to completely transform a space and what’s more, you don’t even have to spend any money on this. This budget-friendly idea may prove a bit challenging at first as people don’t normally adapt to change that easily, but it can do wonders for your home if you give it a go.

  1. Deep Clean

It’s possible that after the holidays there will be quite some dirt in your house so if you want to feel refreshed in your home, you might want to give it a deep clean in January. What better way to start the year than a clean and organised home. Normally the deep cleaning is done in spring, but why wait until then? Since you are undertaking a home makeover, you need to make sure it’s free of dirt, dust and clutter first. While you are rearranging your furniture, you could also give them a good wash. For example, you could get a professional to deeply clean your carpets and sofas as well as your bed and other soft furnishings.

  1. Make the Most of January Sales

While you are at it and you are having everything deep cleaned, you may want to upgrade your bed linen, blankets and cushions as well. Many people find January to be a difficult month because of all of the expenses around the holiday celebrations, however, that is an opportunity for you to make the most of the numerous discounts coming that month too. Maybe you could change those dirty towels and bathroom carpets as well, even on a budget. We can guarantee that you will feel much more refreshed and ready to take on anything the new year throws at you once your home makeover is complete.

  1. Home DIY Crafts

After all, January is a very moody and cold month during which most people tend to stay at home. That gives you an opportunity to work on some DIY crafts which could involve anything from creating new décor for your house or repainting a room in a different colour. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way and it can really do wonders for your house. You could choose to repaint a whole room, make a statement wall using darker and bolder colours or give your kitchen cabinets a fresh coat of paint. Those will be able to bring back some life into the living space and make it look and feel refreshed. 

  1. Create a New Space 

The new year brings with itself a lot of new motivation and inspiration to be better and do more. You are likely to have set up some new year resolutions for yourself which you are hoping to achieve. The first months of the year are important to set the tone for the rest of it so if you want to start practicing meditation more often or read more books, there is something you could do at home that will help you accomplish those resolutions easier. For example, you could create a space in your house dedicated to reading – a cozy corner with good lighting and a space for a cup of tea on the side. For meditation practices, you could completely redo a room for it or simply spare a corner of your house that is unused and create a space where you could easily practice daily. That will motivate you to wake up every day and stick to your resolutions as well as give your space a makeover.

In order to escape the post-festive winter blues, you could make the first few months of the year not seem so long by keeping yourself entertained with a complete home makeover and new beginnings. When we are talking about a makeover, the changes and upgrades do not necessarily have to be big and expensive. You could do wonders for your home on a budget with small but smart ideas that will last you for the months ahead.
