Refreshing your home for the new year is a great way to start the year right. Even better? You can give your home a bit of a new look without spending much! Here are some of the best ways to get started.
Get rid of anything that you don’t use, then organize the things you keep. Inexpensive baskets and boxes are perfect to store things, plus they’re great to add some color to a room.
Use What You Have
It’s time to go shopping! Not in your favorite store or online, but in your own home. Take what you have and re-use it. A pretty calendar can be turned into art. Frame the images in a set of matching color frames and create a beautiful gallery wall. Look through your home to find new ways to use things, such as a bookend or a trunk as a coffee table.
See what you can rearrange in the home. A a chair moved from the living room makes a reading nook in the bedroom when you add a small side table and a comfortable blanket, plus lighting. You can also move art by to new locations, or create a gallery wall with your favorites.
Buy Small Pieces
If you’ve already “shopped” your home, then it’s time to head to the store. Stock up on small inexpensive things such as new throw pillows or covers, window coverings or rugs. All of these will add new texture, and help create a refreshed look for your home.

How to Refresh Your Home for the New Year
Paint is the key for the New Year! Paint your walls a new shade, or create a statement wall with a bright pop of color. Take a brush and paint to a battered new chair and give it a chic new look, or try refreshing your dull white door with a vibrant blue or yellow.
