Why not get a fresh start to the year in your home? Read below to get a few tips on how to kick&nbsp;off the New Year to a sparkly tune!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Get Rid of Clutter</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">There&#39;s no better way of starting fresh than getting rid of extra stuff! Nothing can make you feel more frazzled than having your home feel out-of-sorts. A clean home with less also looks less shabby and more put together. Start by getting rid of stuff you no longer use/ want and either donate, sell, or recycle. This could include old children&#39;s toys, random knick-knacks,&nbsp;CDs, DVDs, etc.,&nbsp;that take up unnecessary space.&nbsp;For things you must keep, try creative storing strategies&nbsp;like woven baskets or an updated storage ottoman to open&nbsp;up space while providing functionality.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Change Your Lighting</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Mood lighting, anyone? Lighting can have a significant impact on how each room feels in your home. Bright, overhead lights are exhausting and make it hard to relax. You can soften the scene by adding a pair of vintage lamps to&nbsp;your living room. Perhaps investing in sconces for your entryways/hallways could do the trick. Maybe your kitchen could use a&nbsp;pendant light (or two). Dimmer switches are also a great investment where possible. There are many ways where lighting tweaks can better serve in your quest to wind down after a hard day&#39;s work.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Simple Changes</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">You don&#39;t have to break the bank to give your home a nice pick-me-up. Try something bold&nbsp;like a beautiful accent wall in the living room. Why not spice up those kitchen cabinets with a fresh coat of paint? Something as simple as adding a few accent pieces, like a tasteful set of vases, a new painting, or a fresh set of curtains,&nbsp;can add&nbsp;that&nbsp;little pizzazz your home has been craving. Adding a mirror or two can help add a fresh level of dimension to you home as well.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> Wed, 27 Dec 2017 15:12:04 -0500
