8 Easy Ways to Freshen up Your Home for the New Year

There's something about the beginning of a new year that makes us want to start things fresh. It feels like a great time to get ourselves organised for the year ahead and outline things we might like to achieve.

While you don't need set a series of unrealistic new year's resolutions or to completely makeover your home, change can be nice and there are some little things you can do around your home to put you in good spirits and freshen things up a bit.

From rearranging furniture to painting your walls in 2022's most stylish hues, here are eight easy things you can do to give your home a bit of a refresh to kickstart the new year on the right note. 

8 Easy Ways to Freshen up Your Home for the New Year

1. Give your bed a new look

Changing up your bed linen colour combination is an easy way to give your sleeping quarters a fresh new look. You could turn towards your overall interior style or the current season to figure out which hues to opt for. Take it up notch by dressing your bed with stylish cushions and a snug to match throw. Whether you prefer a soothing Sage tone or an earthy Rust, you can create the sleep sanctuary of your dreams with our Build Your Own Bundle.

2. Try a new scent

Scent is a powerful tool that can make us feel different ways and set the mood of a space. Candles are a great option here as they one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make your home smell divine. When designed beautifully they also make for a chic home decor piece that creates a heartwarming glow.

If your home is smelling a little lacklustre or you just want to create a certain vibe, opting for a candle could be the way to go. Our Fresh Linen candle in particular is the ultimate scent for making things smell crisp and clean.

3. Rearrange furniture

If you're not interested in spending any more money after the holiday season, consider rearranging your furniture to spice things up. Repositioning your bed or the layout of the seating arrangement in your living room can make a surprising difference to how it looks and feels and it won't cost you a dime!

4. Introduce more greenery

Nothing freshens up your home quite like bringing the outdoors in with a few new green friends. Whether it's a potted plant, tree, or a small succulent, indoor plants can elevate and brighten any home and add a pop of colour.

5. Hang up some new art

Art has a unique ability to transform the way a home looks and feels. Whether it's swapping out a print or hanging up an artwork on a blank wall, a new piece of art will inject personality and interest into your space and change the overall interior aesthetic. 

6. Paint your walls

A fresh lick of paint can make the world of a difference to the overall look and feel of a room. It's also one of the most cost-effective and impactful ways to update your home without committing to a permanent change. You could turn to one of the trending paint colours for 2022 or simply swathe a room in crisp white for the ultimate fresh look.

7. Lay down a rug

Start from the ground up and give your floors a facelift with a lush new rug. This requires minimal effort, is non-permanent and a quick switch up can completely change the look and feel of any room. Jute rugs are one of the most stylish options at the moment, or if you don't want to purchase something new, simply give yours a good clean - It's amazing the difference this will make. 

8. Detox your bathroom

The bathroom is a zone of the home that can be hard to keep hygienic, let alone stylish. To give it a bit of a detox, clear out old products like expired skincare, makeup, and medicines. And If you're wanting to transform your bathroom into a spa-like retreat, take a look at our range of bath essentials from towels to body care products.
