How You Can Love Your Home Again


Home. How are you feeling about yours lately? If you’ve lost that lovin’ feeling, don’t fret. Read on for three simple ways to get it back.

Grab a Paintbrush

Are your burgundy painted walls getting you down? Sometimes all it takes to breathe new life into a room is a couple of coats of fresh paint. Sticking to a neutral pallet is an easy way to update a room and it’s simple and affordable. While you might think that neutral colors = blah, think again. Navy is a classic neutral that blends well with different colors while adding touch of sophistication. Shades of grey, white, brown green and even pink are all great options to help you fall in love with your space all over again.

Update Your Kitchen

If you’ve been looking at your kitchen thinking that it’s time for an upgrade, chances are you might feel overwhelmed or unsure where to start. Total renovations can be very expensive, but have you considered picking one area to focus on as a start? Maybe your countertops are reminiscent of years gone by and are really dating your home, or maybe they’ve just seen better days. Doing your homework on the kitchen countertops Milwaukee has to offer will pay off — with choices of granite to quartz available, you’re bound to find something that will work well for you. One of the best parts about these natural materials is their durability, especially if you’re an avid home cook or have a busy family that spends a lot of time in the kitchen.

Declutter Every Day

Clutter is one of life’s certainties. Day in and day out, items are accumulated, forgotten about and stashed away. And before you know it, you’re feeling anxious and cranky and unable to focus. One of the most important things to do is to keep up with it before it gets out of hand. Decluttering can be as simple as a daily sweep through the main areas of your home, returning items where they belong, and tossing items that you don’t need (hello, junk mail). Come up with a daily system that works, and stick to it. Chances are you’ll enjoy being in your space again — and who wouldn’t want that?

Home is where the heart is… which means you should enjoy being there! Doing what you can to make it your happy place is well worth it.
