We’ve all been spending way more time at home over the last few months and I don’t know about you, but all this extra time has made me focus on a lot of the things I want to change around my house, whether it’s updating bathrooms and knocking down walls or just finally getting to those parts of my house I hate cleaning and will put off for as long as possible.
Here’s a little refresh challenge to help you do some cleaning out and sprucing up without breaking the bank!
Make an Entrance:
Give your guests a warm welcome by spicing up your front door for Summer. Plant bright flowers in pots, add a new welcome mat, put a fresh coat of paint on your door, replace worn looking house numbers and swap out exterior lighting if it’s looking shabby!
Re-organize or re-style a current space:
It could be as simple as re-styling the items on a bookshelf or countertop. Maybe it’s changing up the decor on your mantel or coffee table.
Refreshing the look of a space doesn’t have to cost money. Instead, master the art of rearranging your own home decor. Making small changes in how a shelf is styled or where you put things like plants and artwork can give your living space a brand new, refreshed feel.
Nothing boosts your mood and energy level like good lighting. There are some super simple things you can do to up your lighting game! It’s time to replace old bulbs, swap outdated fixtures for something modern, remove heavy or dark drapes and add a lamps to reading nooks and darker corners!
There’s nothing better than the feeling of clean sheets – don’t you agree?! But what about the rest of our linens? The guest room bedding, the blankets stuffed away in our storage ottomans and linen closets.. Time to wash them all! Summer is here, quarantine is ending and it will be so nice to have blankets and bedding ready for company.
Here’s a bonus tip for making them smell and feel their freshest – replace dryer sheets with dryer balls and add a few drops of your favorite essential oils before throwing them in the dryer. My favorite combo is 3 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Eucalyptus. Your linens will smell like they came straight from the spa!
Break out the magical Norwex rags or call a local window cleaning company! It’s time to schedule the window washing! Turn on your favorite Spotify station and get to washing! While you’re at it, take the time to replace or repair any torn or ratty screens.
Closets and Cabinets:
You know that cabinet or closet that you avoid because it’s going to be a big project to clean it out. You shove things in when you’re in a rush but think “not today!” Well TODAY is that day! I promise you’ll feel so much better!
If you decide to tackle your bedroom closet, try color coding your clothes! It’s a quick way to sort through things and it looks really pretty. Tell me which cabinet or closet you’re refreshing today!
