The Power of Plants - Houseplants can inject life into a dreary home. Plants release oxygen as they photosynthesize, and therefore, restore the air inside the house to its optimum composition. Not all plants can thrive indoors, however, spider plants are able to grow well if given adequate water and a pot that is large enough to comfortably accommodate the plant's entire root system.
Reducing Clutter - A cluttered environment can increase stress levels and make it very difficult to find vital items, such as keys or important papers. The turn of the year is the perfect time to sort through items that are taking up space in the home and to throw a few things out. Since for most the weather is often cold and wet, homeowners are often stuck indoors with time on their hands. Unwanted clothes, shoes, books and games can be sold online or donated to charity. Investing in some large decorative storage boxes is a good way to store items that are not used frequently but cannot be discarded.
Deep Cleaning - Once all unnecessary clutter has been exorcised from your home, it is time to make an early start on spring cleaning. Even the most plainly decorated home can look beautiful when it is spotlessly clean.
A carpet cleaning machine can remove stains and grime, leaving carpets looking as vibrant as when they were new. To maintain the pristine state of the newly cleaned floors, consider investing in a personalized doormat that will act as a friendly reminder for guests to wipe their feet.
Wall Art - Being surrounded by the same decor year after year can become boring, but redecorating can be time-consuming and expensive. Homeowners can quickly spruce up their homes by adding decorative patterns or images to the walls. A variety of stencils and wall finales exist to make the job easy.
Spruce Up the Exterior - The exterior of the home is the first part that guests see. Adding flowerpots just outside the door, as well as a personalized doormat just inside the threshold, can make a home appear more welcoming. Happy revamping!
