How to: make your home feel fresh for the New Year
New Year. New you. New goals. But did you know that the key to all of these 2020 aims might lie at home? After all, it’s where we feel most ourselves, where we come to relax, and where we spend most of our time outside of the office. So it stands to reason that giving your home a zen, calming makeover for New Year is likely to help you reach your goals and stick to your New Year’s resolutions. If you’ve got big plans for 2020 and beyond, and want to style your space to suit, here’s how to make your home feel fresh for the New Year.
1. Keep clutter under control
A tidy house really does equal a tidy mind, so if you want to create a home that’ll help you stay focused on your personal goals without distraction, keeping your clutter controlled and covered is essential. Invest in storage solutions in every room, making sure everything you own has a designated space. Smaller options like this rattan storage basket and malachite round box, are great for your kitchen and office. While a larger piece like a Moroccan tiled cabinet makes a great addition to your bedroom or living room.
2. Give your office an overhaul
If your goals this year are business focussed, crafting a home office that’s a tranquil haven – and a space you actually want to spend time in – should be an essential part of your New Year home decor refresh. Bring inspiring greenery into your home office with this set of three woven planter baskets, then treat yourself to some new pens – kept handy in this small orange storage jar. Investing in a walnut clock radio will keep you productive and calm during long shifts in your home office, and a scented candle will help amp up the ambience too.
3. Make your kitchen a refreshing retreat
If you’re like the majority of people, your New Year’s resolutions probably contained some health and fitness related goals. Which means your kitchen should be one of your top priorities when it comes to updating your home for 2020. Out top tips?
