5 Simple Ways to Fall in Love with Your Home Again

March 3, 2021

Do you remember the way you felt about your home when you first moved in? Like any relationship, the honeymoon phase can fade over time. If you’re stuck in a rut, follow these easy steps to rekindle those fond feelings for your home.

Get rid of the clutter. A messy home not only leads to an anxious mind, it hides the true beauty of your space. Embrace Marie Kondo’s advice and only keep the things that bring you joy.

Do a deep clean. Bigger cleaning jobs – like scrubbing the grout in the kitchen, or washing the windows in the living room – tend to pile up. With a little elbow grease, your home will look the same way it did when you moved in.

Invest in a statement piece. A little pop of colour can really transform a space. Whether it be a bold piece of furniture or an interesting piece of art, it only takes a small investment to reinvent a room you’re bored of.

Buy some plants. Research shows those who live around nature are happier than those who don’t. Most indoor plants are easy to care for, plus they help naturally purify the air in your home.

Get to work on easy repairs. This is the perfect opportunity to scrub the stain on the carpet you keep meaning to clean, or the leaky faucet that drives you nuts at night.
