3 Tips To Transform Your Home in 2021
Another year has been and gone, and as we make our resolutions for 2021, it’s out with the old and in with the new once again.
Alongside brutal new fitness regimes, experimentations with veganism and attempts to master Italian, many of us kickstart the new year with a fresh commitment to keeping our homes spick and span.
Whether you’re looking to breathe a new lease of life into your interior design or simply want to stay on top of mess, these three simple tips will help you stick to your newfound resolution and transform your home.
- Build tidiness into your routine
Cleaning is just about the least enjoyable way to spend a few hours.
But by making it a part of your everyday routine, you’ll hardly even notice you’re doing it. Commit just ten minutes once a day, or half an hour every few days, to tackle a couple of small tasks. Fitting these short sessions into your usual routine is an efficient way to keep on top of tiresome chores – after all, the trick is not to let it build up. This will not only keep your home looking spick and span at all times but makes cleaning a more manageable task.
- Throw it away
Do you find that endless piles of clutter seem to rule the roost in your home, taking over every surface and leaving you at a loose end?
Ask yourself, what would Marie Kondo do?
Seriously. If it doesn’t spark joy, get rid of it. If you haven’t used it in six months, get rid of it. And if it sparks thoughts of “Oh, I may need this one day,” even though you haven’t touched it in the three years since you moved in? You know what to do – throw it away.
We’re all guilty of a little hoarding now and again but rest assured that no matter how difficult you find it to throw things away, you’ll feel far better after freeing up a little space.
- Get creative
For a truly unique twist on your home décor, why not inject a little creativity? Simple tweaks add a personal touch that will be the envy of your Instagram followers.
Flex your painting skills and level up the traditional feature wall with a bespoke mural designed to your taste. If you don’t feel like taking on a big project, why not try your hand at sculpture to create small ornaments for truly one-of-a-kind décor?
Craft wire is a great way to get creative, and perfect for those who favour a minimalist aesthetic – Ormiston Wire have supplied many amateur and professional artists for magical works. If you don’t feel like starting from scratch, why not re-imagine an existing piece in your home? Re-painting a vase or replacing the knobs on cupboards and drawers are great ways to show off your sense of style.
