The new year is an opportunity for a fresh start!

Decluttering and Organizing 

Before making any major design changes, take some time to declutter your belongings and organize the items you want to keep. Clean out your various storage spaces, and decide which items you still need. If some of the items you plan to get rid of are still in good condition, consider donating them to local charities, selling them, or giving them to family and friends.

To create more storage space, you may want to install cubbies or floating shelves in various rooms or set up an organized system with clear containers in your attic, basement, or garage. To organize paper documents, invest in a filing cabinet – or digitize some of your paperwork to save space!

 Bringing the Outdoors Inside

Perhaps living in an area with long, dark winters brings down your mood. Or maybe you enjoy warm weather year-round, but you want to bring some “green” flair into your home. Either way, you can draw inspiration from the natural world and place some low-maintenance houseplants in every room! Smart Garden Guide recommends choosing some house plants that don’t require much care or attention, like peperomia, spider plants, cast iron plants, fiddle leaf figs, Madagascar dragon trees, and moth orchids.

If you love to cook with fresh herbs, you might even want to start an indoor herb garden. With an indoor garden, you can enjoy delicious herbs and vegetables all year round!

Colorful Spaces

For the past few years, minimalism has been the reigning trend in the world of interior design. But this year, color is due for a comeback. If you’re feeling a bit bored of neutrals, get ready to switch things up with colorful paint hues, jewel-toned fabrics, bright accent pieces, and eye-catching artwork for your walls!

Focus on Wellness

You want to ensure that your home supports your mental and physical health. If you’d like to commit to a workout routine this year, try turning an unused space into a home gym! Additionally, if you enjoy meditation and yoga, you could designate a “zen corner” in your home gym, or repurpose an entire room as a personal zen studio. To design your very own zen studio, Indow recommends using rugs, pillows, and tapestries to block out noise, bringing in candles or incense, and letting in lots of natural light.

Creative Lighting

The start of the year is the perfect time to improve the lighting in your home. You might want to install a few new lighting fixtures to brighten up various rooms! When it comes to adding lighting fixtures, pay extra attention to your kitchen, bedrooms, and home office. Chances are, you and your family spend lots of time in these rooms, so you’ll want to ensure that they’re well-lit.

By redecorating your home, you can express your creativity, optimize under-utilized spaces, and turn your house into your favorite place to hang out! This year, add a few of these interior design projects to your list of resolutions. With these tips, you’ll be ready to organize your home, add a few natural touches to each room, and design colorful spaces that pop.

Are you ready to transform your home this year?
