With each new year comes the opportunity for a fresh start, bold goals, refreshed outlooks, and the ability to breathe new life into your routine. Did you know that “getting organized” is a top resolution on many people’s New Year’s list? If this sounds like you, now is the perfect time to invest in your space and invigorate your home. And, good news, the process doesn’t have to be pricey or time consuming.
Here are some quick tips and recommendations to easily revive four different areas in your home for a fresh start to the new year.
- Entryway Foyer
It’s all about the first impression. The entryway gets tons of traffic and is often the first area guests see. However, this space also tends to be one of the most overlooked. The initial first impression can be easily kicked up a notch with a few simple tweaks.
Update/Add an Entryway Rug
Swapping out an old rug is a simple way to make a big impact. With so many design options and color combinations, like this old English-style artesian rug, you can customize your space to reflect any style.
Plus, adding a rug is a quick trendy addition that doesn’t have to break the bank. With plenty of budget-friendly options like this bohemian geometric design rug, you can have a fresh space for under $40! This addition can also save your floors in the long run by catching all the dirt from outside.
Expand Your Space with a Mirror
Mirrors can give the illusion of a larger space and can also brighten and expand the look of a room, which is especially significant in smaller areas like foyers or entryways. With the right placement, a nicely designed entryway mirror can substantially upgrade your space.
Keep Everyday Items Organized with a New Shelf or Entryway Table
An entryway shelf like this Industrial Style Three Tier Display Bookshelf is the perfect addition to any foyer, bringing in functionality and style. Not only will it help keep your space organized, but it provides an opportunity to set the stage and show off your unique design. Start by staging your shelves with some of your favorite books or art. Add a decorative bowl or box to collect and keep track of everyday used items like keys and wallets. Finally, this is a perfect area to add a pop of natural color with fresh cut flowers.
- Home Office
With so many people working from home, no wonder home office renovations are expected to boom in 2023! Your home office and workspace are key parts of your working environment that can impact your productivity and general wellbeing.
Upgrade to a Comfortable, Supportive Office Chair
A good office chair is a must. It can improve posture and help you stay focused and engaged. This sleek, comfortable, durable chair is the perfect addition to any home office. It adds a fun pop of color, and its armless design makes it simple to tuck away under the desk, keeping your space seamless and free from obstructions.
Stay on Task with an Organized Workspace
Color and functionality are two things to consider when upgrading your workspace. A versatile, well-equipped desk can help enhance your mood, boost productivity, manage stress, and minimize distraction. For example, this classic writing computer desk is ideal for a clean, polished look.
When everything has a place, it’s easier to keep and maintain a clutter-free desk. So, having the right tools, such as dedicated storage options like this desktop organizer is essential. The three-part design is versatile and can store papers, notebooks, pens, pencils, and smaller office items.
To top off your refreshed office space, we recommend adding a new plant to increase creativity, clean the air, and help reduce stress.
- Living Room
More than ever, we are using living rooms and common spaces in better ways to serve more than just one purpose.
Upgrade to Multi-Functional Furniture Pieces
Multi-functionality is a leading trend in 2023, which means versatility is key. This two-piece Nesting Coffee Table is the epitome of versatility and can be used as one piece of furniture or two! Plus, it has a convenient drawer to hide any clutter before hosting. If you are looking for a more versatile seating arrangement, check out this Convertible Futon that is elegant, stylish and highly functional.
Add a Pop of Style with New Pillows and Throws
One of the easiest ways to update your space is with new throw pillows and blankets. There are tons of design options, color combinations, and styles that can instantly bring a fresh vibe to any space.
Don’t discount the little details. Along with appearance, your home’s scent is just as important. Try some new candles or even diffusers to enhance your mood.
Are you planning on hosting more in 2023? The kitchen is one of the main areas in your home that is guaranteed to be a gathering place. Adding or updating a few pieces can give your kitchen a fresh look without breaking the bank.
If you have an unused nook, try adding a separate seating area for more options. This cute little bistro set is perfect for any vacant indoor corner or outdoor space. Spruce it up by adding some conversational centerpieces to liven up the party.
Nothing says party better than a splash of good spirits. If you don’t have a dedicated bar area, a bar cart could be a great addition. A bar cart provide portability, and you can customize the design with endless colors and styles.
Whether you're opting for a small or large space refresh in the new year, there is something for everyone’s style.
