10 Minute Tricks to Freshen Up Your Home


You may spend hours looking at beautiful homes and DIY’s online, but when it comes to your place, it seems there is never enough time, energy or it just gets overlooked. And while this may not get you around to sprucing up your flooring or the paint job you’ve been thinking about recently, these tips and tricks only take 10 minutes and can really freshen up your space.

1. Replace Your Hardware
A quick and easy way to freshen up and change a room is by replacing the hardware, whether it would be in the kitchen or the bathroom, this is sure to make a difference. With home design trends constantly changing, this is an easy way to change your space without spending a ton of money.

2. Freshen Up With Flowers
Treating yourself to flowers (semi)regularly can really do wonders for your home. It doesn’t have to be expensive, even the grocery stores have a great selection. If you’re headed to your nearby florist, pick up a few inexpensive and ask for extra greenery to really bulk up your bouquet. Such a simple trick can make a huge difference when you walk into the room.

3. Frame Your Kids’ Artwork
If you have a dull or bare wall and you have young children, you really don’t need to spend tons of money on one-of-a-kind pieces. A gallery wall made of their colourful masterpieces can brighten up a room in a way that you can add onto and cherish for many years to come.

4. Switch to a New Scent
The idea of a signature scent or even scent association can be quite nostalgic, however, switching out for something different can really make your home feel new. Seasonal scents are a good balance between the two. Keep your warm, woodsy, or musky scents for fall and winter and opt for breezy, light, and floral scents for spring and summer.

5. Perk Up Those Pillows
Changing up your pillowcases is a super simple way to completely change a room. Especially in a neutral room, you really have lots of room to play with colours and designs. Change up your bed or couch throw pillows with bright colours and don’t be afraid to mix and match prints!

6. Clean the Windows
Easily one of the most looked over tasks, cleaning your windows allows tons of natural light to brighten the room. Over time, windows get dusty, and often, the task of cleaning them seems like the last thing you want to do. Take some time, give your windows some love, and let the light shine through your gorgeous rooms.

It is normal for you to want to change around your rooms depending on your mood, and with these little tricks, you can freshen up that space in no time! As always, feel free to leave a comment, do you have any tips that you do to freshen up?
