It's all too common for homeowners to fall out of love with their home as time goes on, no matter how much they loved their house when they first moved in. If you're tired of feeling stagnant in your space and are looking for ways to refresh your home, keep reading and take some inspiration from these ideas!
Rearrange Your Furniture
If your furniture isn’t giving you the inspiration it once did, or feels like it's closing off the space, rearranging the furniture can be a great way to start seeing your space with new eyes. If it's not possible to move your larger furniture pieces, move just the smaller pieces of furniture. You'll get a similar perspective shift. The best part of this intervention: it costs nothing.
Declutter and Organize
Another great way to revamp your space is to declutter and organize! Most of the time in the decluttering process, your space will get worse before it gets better, so don’t let this discourage you and just keep taking it one step at a time. Remember to be realistic with yourself about what you will actually use and what you can finally get rid of that you have been holding on to for a rainy day. If you are finding it difficult to get rid of things, it could definitely be helpful to invite someone else to assist you with the harder decisions.

Change the Treatment on Your Windows
Careful attention to window treatments can make a big difference, and there are so many options to create the ambience that you want! You can make an area more open and inviting by replacing clunky dark curtains with light flowy ones or creating a statement by adding something with an intricate pattern or bold color.
Curtains and window treatments can definitely get pricey, but look out for sales and try to choose timeless pieces that you can carry with you for years to come and make the investment worth it!
Deep Clean Your Home With Intention
Before you start cleaning, reflect on the reasons why you want a clean home. This will help shift your mindset from something you have to do to something you want to do to create a better environment for you and your family. Now when we say “deep clean” we really mean deep clean! Clean behind your air fryer, take the dog toys out from under the couch, and sweep and mop your entire house. Put on a podcast or a playlist of your favorite songs and make a day out of it!
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
One of the easiest ways to refresh a space is to choose a paint color that you feel inspired by and paint away! Painting is never a bad idea because if you mess up or decide that you don’t like it you can very easily paint a new color over it or paint it back to the original. You can paint the entire room, one wall, or a portion of a wall. Painting a single wall in a room can create a focal point, add an unexpected pop of color, and prevent things from feeling too bland with minimal effort!
Change Your Artwork
An easy way to liven up your space is to switch out your artwork. Whether that means moving around the placement of your artwork, replacing old pieces with new ones, or simply switching out the artwork in your pre-existing frames, mixing up your wall decor can help keep things feeling fresh and new!
Painting the front door and creating an inviting entrance is another great way to refresh your home.
We hope this post has inspired you to change up your space and help you fall back in love with your home this Valentine’s season! Creating a space you love can completely change your mindset and give you some motivation to crush your goals, so don’t wait!
