The first time you saw your home, you loved it. You loved the way the rooms felt, the way the windows let in light, the way it was uniquely yours. You had fun decorating it, and you enjoyed your first few months (or years) living in your space. But sometimes, you can get bored. Uninspired. You can fall out of love with your home.
The story doesn’t have to end there.
From quick fixes to large projects, here are five simple ways to fall in love with your home again.
It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do. Covering up your living room’s beige walls or adding some appeal to your blank white bathroom can make a world of difference. Today’s most well-loved colors are so popular for a reason: calming neutrals and moody jewel tones inspire a stress-free and inspirational space.
Throw Things Away
If you don’t like something anymore, get rid of it. It doesn’t matter who gifted it to you or how much you spent on it or the reason you bought it in the first place. Sometimes, objects can elicit certain feelings, and when those feelings aren’t positive, there’s no need to keep those objects around. Set yourself free by getting rid of the things that just don’t bring you joy anymore. You’ll be surprised by how much better your home feels.
Upgrade Your Lighting
An updated light fixture can bring character, warmth, and brightness into an otherwise dull and dreary space. Consider swapping out outdated fixtures with something a little bit more modern. A great way to add personality and light to a room—especially a large room or a space with tall ceilings—is to install a chandelier. Chandeliers can be a bit challenging to pick out, so be sure to do your research on how to choose the right chandelier first.
A cluttered house is a stressful house. Who could possibly enjoy their space if they feel overwhelmed by it on a regular basis? Nix this issue by finding a storage solution that works for the rooms you need it most, whether that’s the pantry, the bathroom, the kitchen, or every single room in your house.

Refresh Your Bedding
New bedding is a simple way to fall in love with your home again. Swap out an outdated comforter set or mismatched blanket and shams with bedding that invites serenity and a sense of cohesion. This is one of the best things you can do to help you enjoy your bedroom again and get a better night’s sleep.
