The home is where the heart is. This love month, there are several things that we can do to show our home some love. As we take care of our home and make some efforts to make it cozier, we will feel great and the people living with us. A cozy home is a great place to spend quality time with our family. Here are some things that we can do to show some love to our home this Valentine’s Day:
Organizing and Cleaning
Organizing stuff and cleaning our home can be a big task for us. Sometimes, it is even harder to throw things that are no longer needed in our home. But for your home to be cozier and more spacious, organizing and cleaning are very much necessary. Not just that, but it can also be a great bonding experience for you and your family.
You can start by assigning each member of the family an area or room in your home. The task is to gather all the clutter or any item that doesn’t belong in that specific room and sort through it. You can put those items back in their respective places to make your home more organized for those items that you still need. You can either recycle those items you no longer need, create, donate and sell piles, or just throw out anything that cannot be repurposed. This is a difficult task, but the key is to be relentless. If you haven’t used the item for a year, get rid of it. It feels good to have more space and get rid of the clutter in your home.
Donating and selling unwanted items is helpful to keep valuable things out of the landfill. Donating those things can be of great help to others in need, like your local shelter. So sort through those unwanted items in your home and see what you can donate to help others.
On the other hand, selling items is a great way to earn extra money towards something you’ll use. Household items and clothing in good condition can be sold online at a reasonable price. Just search through your local Facebook community groups and sell those still of good quality items.
Once your home is organized and free of clutter, be sure to maintain that condition by going through your home regularly.
Add More of Your Personal Touch
After doing all the cleaning, now it is time to add more of your personal touch and coziness to the various spaces within your home. Buy new bedding, pillows, throws, and other decors that can make your home a little cozier. Choose a color that represents your personality, especially in buying new stuff.
You can also display some of the things you have personally made, like paintings and embroidery. Aside from that, you can also put some of the things that can make you happy, like plants. Plants also add life to your space and can help improve your indoor air quality.
Repair and Paint
As you look into your house, find those areas that already need repair or repainting. Maybe you want to change the atmosphere of your home by repainting it with a different color. It is an excellent recreational project for you and your family. Aside from that, you can also look into your old cabinets or your old furniture that needs some repair. You can do some do-it-yourself projects to help improve your home.
Another option you can show love to your home is to get a home inspection and see how your house is. Your house might need be some repairs, and do not allow it to grow into more significant house issues. Show your home some love this Valentine’s Day.
