Give Your Home a Top-to-Bottom Refresh

As the pandemic continues to ebb and flow, it’s a good time to ensure your home is a happy, healthy place that promotes wellness and overall holistic approaches to living. If you decide to make any major updates, you could be adding to your property’s value, as well as your enjoyment of your space. Festival Outlets has a wide range of home decor options that can give your home a brand new look and feel.

 

Give Your Home a Top-to-Bottom Refresh

 

Spring Clean

Truth be told, spring cleaning can take place in spring, fall, winter, or summer. It’s essentially a top-to-bottom cleaning and airing out of your home to give it a refreshed and revived look and feel. Wash windows inside and out, clean out cupboards, steam clean carpets and tile, wash down your baseboards and woodwork, and give window coverings a full clean. According to Good Housekeeping, you might even freshen upholstery, flip mattresses, change your air filters, and check the batteries in your smoke detectors. Get rid of old medicines, expired foods, and other products. Consider it a healthy, fresh start

Make Repairs

According to This Old House, start by going through your house room-by-room and make a list of little fixes that you’ve probably started to overlook. For example, maybe you have holes in the wall from previous wall hangings that you need to patch, a piece of drywall that got dented, dog scratches on doors or woodwork, or tarnished fixtures that need a little TLC. Maybe your driveway has some cracks, your deck needs refinishing, or your bedrooms need a bit of a refresh with paint or wallpaper. Knocking these little things off your “to-do” list will make you feel more organized.

Involve Your Kids

Kids have been cooped up in a lot of ways during the pandemic, so maybe it’s time to help them turn their rooms into their own personal retreats. Some kid’s bedroom design ideas might include removable wall decor decals, fresh bedding or new bedroom furniture, or maybe a total refresh for a new age group. If you have a young teen with a child-like room, they may be ready for an upgrade. Make sure the room also is conducive to good studying, particularly for kids that are still learning remotely. Allow them to pick a theme or a color scheme, and make it nice and cozy. Fluffy overstuffed pillows, a piece of furniture like a giant beanbag or desk, or even some funky new lighting fixtures can fit the bill.

Improve Your Property Value

If you’re planning to list your house for sale soon, any upgrades or changes you make to your home should be carefully thought out and well documented. For example, if you decide to lay new flooring, install plantation shutters, refurbish a deck or patio, upgrade your landscaping, or add something like a hot tub or a built-in barbecue, keep records and take before-and-after photos. This is especially important if you make a major renovation like adding a new roof. Hang on to receipts so you can demonstrate the value you’ve added to your home when it’s time to sell. If you’re not sure what upgrades are most appealing to potential buyers, search online for different properties and see what seems to be popular among buyers.

We’re all spending a lot more time at home, and as such, it’s important to make sure it’s a clean, happy, healthy space that’s comfortable for living, working, studying, and playing. Hire outside help if necessary. For big projects, it could be worthwhile to hire a general contractor. A professional cleaning crew can also help you get a super deep clean that can be well worth the investment.
