With the new year also comes a new point of view. For some, the start of a new year means a time to make resolutions, evaluate our goals for the new year and get organized. What better way to start the year then with a fresh start? While these changes often involve things in ourselves, sometimes they can be things in our homes or environment as well.
By now you should have a handle on your post-holiday clean-up and have already started packing last year’s decorations away. So now would be a good time to step back and look around at your home and think about those decorating ideas you have been conjuring up or let’s finally tackle those small remodeling projects you want to start. Redecorating often boosts creativity, fresh ideas and ramps up your productivity levels. There is no better way to get things going than by first getting your home organized.
Look around at your room and don’t be afraid to switch things up. Move the furniture around or take artwork off the walls and rehang it in a new location. Once you have time to visualize your new look, then start by decluttering your space. Sort through your belongings, go through last year’s paperwork, throw out old magazines and decide what you need to keep, recycle, donate, or even throw away.
The first step to any organizing project is to take inventory, so gather your piles from every corner of the house and sort through it. What better way to corral your paperwork and belongings then in stylish baskets? Not only will these keep your items organized and separated, but the baskets will compliment your room décor. Serving trays are also a wonderful way to organize your stuff. Use them to hold your mail or house a collage of family photos. These days, we know that your home is much more than just a place of residence. For a lot of people, it has become your office and workplace and even an educational institution. Organization and comfort should be a top priority to keep in mind for these spaces. If you feel uninspired and unmotivated when you sit to work, it's time to switch things up a little by adding character to these rooms and spaces - the possibilities are unlimited. Your home office will appreciate a little organization and décor upgrades. This year let us make it a must for your home office to run with maximum efficiency.
Let's face it; you spend a lot of time at your desk, so why don't you spruce it up so that it feels more like you? There's something about making your space reflect your personality that just makes you more productive. And how best can you do this? Well, it's as easy as getting some fancy pen cups or a decorated notepad. Your home office could benefit from a stylish desk caddy or a two-tiered metal basket. What better way to declutter your desk then with this metal divided organizer?
Focus on personalizing things that bring you joy. You see those little things that make you happy and enjoy looking at. It could be design books to keep you inspired, picture frames, or something as simple as a new stapler. Even adding a stylish desk clock or beautiful votive candle holder would bring some style and sophistication to your work area.
Have you ever thought about adding a throw blanket to your office décor, especially during these cold months? Yes, it does work well with your home office design. In fact, it is one of the easiest ways to warm up your office space at home.
Another fantastic way to decorate your home office is by adding a plant. Whether you are a long- term plant parent or just beginning your plant-friendly journey, I am sure you already know that plants deserve a premium place in your home. And there is no better place than your home office.
We can all agree everyone has unique needs. So, as you declutter and organize, redecorate or remodel, spruce up your home office or create a new cozy nook, do it all with style and make it fun. Get your home ready for all the new adventures this year will bring!
