Give Your Home a Facelift with These Easy Tips


Over the past year, all of us have spent a lot of time at home. Many of us have worked from home, studied from home, and even worked out of our home gyms (a.k.a. living rooms and/or garages). With more time at home, we have realized that our home may need a facelift. It has been some time or maybe years since you moved in and decorated your home. It’s time for your home facelift with these easy tips.

Declutter and Get Rid of Stuff

The fastest way to make your home look new is to organize your space. By creating clean, junk-free rooms not only gives your space a rejuvenated look but also creates a good feeling and energy that passes along to you and your family. If you don’t believe it, take a lesson from KonMari. However, the question is what to do with all the stuff (a.k.a. junk). You could spend hours trying to find a place to donate the stuff too or pile it up in the garage until the next bulk pick-up or you could do it the easy way. Love Junk can take your junk away quickly and at a very economic price. It’s free to sign-up. Just list your junk and name a price. Then, local garbage collectors and/or causes that reuse the items come to remove your junk for your listed price.

Do Some Landscaping and/or Make Inside Green

A tip for the experts is to give your home greener, more natural look. If you have an outdoor space, do some landscaping maintenance like weeding and trimming back of plants. Additionally, you may want to add some seasonal flowers and edible plants. If you don’t have outdoor space, you can make your inside of your home a bit more green. You can add some hanging plants as well as floor plants to your living room. Any bright windowsill can also be a place for a small herb garden. Some easy herbs to grow inside are rosemary, basil, and mint.

Paint Your Front Door

The front door of your home is the first thing every guest sees about your home. Many of us ignore the front door because we enter our homes through the garage or side door. However, everyone else comes in the front door. If you have owned your home for some time, home design and trends have changed. Keep up with the trends by painting your front door a different color than the house. Because painting the front door is an inexpensive change, don’t be afraid to go bold. If you don’t like the color, pick another and paint it again. It isn’t permanent.

With these three easy tips, you can give your home a needed facelift. None of the above are terribly expensive. Painting is very economic. Landscaping and interior plants can be small to moderate expenses. Lastly, getting rid of your junk is very affordable with a large return on your investment. It’s time for your home’s new look.
