With the holidays behind us and the new year ahead, it’s a great time to refresh your apartment. Some people think that you need to buy new furniture to transform your home, but that’s simply not true. Here are 3 easy ways to make your luxury apartment feel fresh and new without spending too much money or time.
1) Cleaning And Decluttering – It's important to clean up any clutter in our apartments before the New Year starts. Start by focusing on all of the surfaces in every room, including windowsills, furniture, tabletops, counters, and floors. You want to get rid of anything that is broken or no longer useful, as well as items that you aren't using anymore. The 6-month rule is the key here (for most belongings): if you haven't used an item within the past 6 months, it is likely time to donate.
2.) Change up your décor - Decorate with bright colors that bring energy into the room such as purple, yellow, and pink (and if you're in the mood for something glam, add sparkly accents like sequins). Find inspiration in nature and incorporate green plants into your space to bring energy into every corner. The key is to have fun while you're redecorating – this should be an enjoyable experience that reflects how you want to feel when coming home at night after a long day.
3.) Incorporate some aromatherapy - If you're feeling lethargic and need a boost of energy, then incorporating some aromatherapy in your apartment is the perfect solution. Place an essential oil diffuser on your desk at work or near the bedside table. These devices diffuse natural oils into the air for a relaxing scent that will help you sleep better and improve moods overall. You can also use these devices to increase focus and productivity during the day. This may seem like a cliché idea, but it really helps set a mood. Incorporating different scents such as vanilla, lavender, cinnamon, and mint help create a relaxing atmosphere when you need to relax, or they can even be used as energizers in the morning when your mind is fuzzy.
