Refresh Your Home For The New Year

The beginning of the new year is the perfect time to reform and improve, live your best life, and get organized. You finally put away your holiday decorations now your home feels either sparsely decorated or extremely chaotic after the festive season. Not to worry... the start of the new year is the prime time to restyle, reorganize, and refresh. Here are some innovative hacks to make your space feel new and refreshed for the year ahead.

Restyle Rooms With Your Decorative Pieces


Refreshing your home without buying anything after the new year is a perfect time to shop in your home. Furniture shuffle to restructure a room. Simply rearranging your existing furniture can breathe new life into a space. Maybe that spare bedroom could become a cozy reading nook or a home office. Select your favorite art pieces or accessories from around the house or swap chairs, lamps, or other accent  furniture from different rooms. Simply switching decor items or making layout changes can breathe new life into a space!

Think about how you currently use each space and how you'd ideally like to use them. Experiment with different layouts until you find one that feels just right. After I put my Christmas decor away, I changed the mood of my home without spending on new pieces by rotating all of my decorative accents.

Use what you have creatively by looking at your existing items with fresh eyes. Don’t keep something in the same spot just because it has always been there. Rotate your decorative items to a new location within the home. Change out throw pillows, restyle your coffee table, or try new combinations of items from different rooms to create a fresh feeling in the space.

Reorganize Room By Room 

[ Sometimes all you need is organizing after a chaotic holiday season. ]

The more stuff we keep it tends to make our home disorganized, and a clean home makes you feel good to start decorating fresh for the new year. Take stock of how you used your home over the last year and identify the items that are no longer needed. Refresh your room by cleaning off your surfaces, spot cleaning, vacuuming, and deep cleaning your sofas. Implement a one-in, one-out rule: for every new item you bring into your home, let go of an existing one. Donate the pieces that didn't spark joy in the home and give your most meaningful items a front-and-center display.

Reorganizing can be incredibly freeing and gives you a clear slate to work with, making your home feel more spacious and inviting. Focus on keeping high-quality, versatile pieces that you truly love and that serve multiple purposes. This approach reduces clutter and ensures each item adds value to your space creating a serene and organized living environment that helps you refresh your home for the new year.

I restyle and organize my coffee table at least once every three months in my living room, using the same decor for a new and fresh look every time. This simple practice keeps my space feeling dynamic and ever-evolving. 

Refresh With A Small Splurge

If there's a new piece of decor, whether inexpensive or a splurge, that excites you about a fresh start, indulge yourself. Finding at least one new item can inspire a new look for your space. A large potted plant or an arrangement of smaller plants can bring life and color into your home, contributing to a fresh, natural vibe. A new rug can define a space, add warmth, and unify various design elements in a room. Sometimes, a small investment can go a long way in going in the new year with a refreshed and inspired living space.
