4 Quick Refreshers for your home
Do you ever feel like your home is Blah? You loved it when you decorated your living space, bedroom, bathroom, or whatever room that is now feeling a little gray. It felt fresh then, but now, it is not so fresh feeling. I know how you feel. I have found some quick refreshers for your home that will make your home a place of refuge again that won’t cost you anything but time.
What captures the eye?
What captures your eye when you walk into the room? Let that be the first place you consider changing to give the room a quick refresher. Ask your partner, your best friend, what they first see when they walk into the room.
Maybe it is the collection of plants, pictures, or pillows on a couch. What catches your eye? Whatever it is, focus on that area of the room and start by changing it up. A quick refresher in the area that captures your eye will help make your home a refuge again.
Shop in your own house
Your house is full of decorations that you loved or at least liked at one time. Take some time and shop the house. A simple swap of a flower arrangement from the bedroom will sparkle in the living room on the mantel.
A basket that sat in the corner in the bedroom could be moved to the bathroom to hold some rolled hand-towels or toiletry items for your guest to use.
Shop your own house. Use the items that you once loved so much that brought into your home. Quick refreshers of items you love will help make your home a place of refuge again.
Swap your Rugs
A quick way to refresh a room is to change the rugs. Moving the rugs around will help draw your eyes to different areas of the room. You can simply change the location in the room or layer rugs for a different effect.
The placement of a rug in a room will bring warmth and focus. Even just turning the rug in a different direction will be a quick refresher in the room.
Fruit basket turnover
Little side story, I have been married to my husband for 32 years. I can not tell you how many times I have come home from being out for the afternoon or day and the living room or bedroom furniture has been moved. I can honestly say, there has only been a few times I didn’t think it gave the room a refreshing look.
Watching my husband do this over the years, has helped our home seem refreshed without costing us a lot of money. You don’t have to move everything in the room but a simple move of a side chair or table and lamp will do a quick refresher.
