Another year is coming to a close, which can be a fantastic opportunity to start planning for home improvement projects to get started on in the new year. It’s imperative to keep your home feeling fresh and exciting.
Hang some new art this year! Add some curtains to transform your living room. Enjoy a fresh breeze this coming spring and summer by installing a screen door magnetic closure. If you aren’t sure what upgrades to add to your home, these ten household products can help freshen up your space and make living in your house a little more convenient.
- Robot Vaccum
Nobody loves spending hours every week vacuuming their apartment. If you have pets, you know this struggle all too well. Cleaning up dog and cat hair from your floors and carpets feels endless.
A robot vacuum does the work for you! Simply set it and forget it. Your dog may be slightly afraid of it at first, but they probably don’t love it when you use a traditional vacuum either. Your robot friend will happily clean up your floors daily, keeping pet hair to a minimum. Plus, now you’ll spend more time cuddling with your pets and less time cleaning.
- Smart Doorbell
Traditional doorbells alert you if someone is at your door when you’re home. Smart doorbells include a camera and sync to your phone, so you’ll know whenever somebody comes knocking. Not only do these camera doorbells help keep your home more secure, but you’ll be able to confirm that packages are delivered. These bad boys are video enabled to deter thieves from targeting your home.
- Airy Curtains
Add some cottage-core vibes to your space. Curtains are a great way to make any room in your home feel a little cozier. They are an immediate upgrade from clunky blinds. Choose a light and airy fabric to invite natural light into your home and brighten your space.
- Screen Door With Magnetic Closure
Take it beyond natural light, install a screen door with magnetic closure on your patio doors, and invite a cooling cross breeze to flow through your home. Not only will these convenient and easy-to-install screen doors keep bugs out – but they are entirely hands-free.
Host parties with ease. Carry a tray of drinks to friends on the patio without breaking a sweat. Dogs and cats can use these handy screen doors by themselves – no more barking and meowing anytime they want to adventure outside to the yard.
- Trendy Outdoor Cafe Lights
Who says you can’t continue to enjoy your backyard or balcony after the sun sets? Add a string of trendy cafe lights to brighten up your outdoor space inexpensively. Now the party can continue long into the night.
- New Sheets
When was the last time you treated yourself to new sheets? Even if you wash your sheets regularly, they will eventually lose their integrity, and sweat and body oils won’t wash out anymore. Yuck! You should be replacing your sheets every two years.
New bedding is a sure and simple way to revamp your bedroom. Plus, there is something so luxurious about new sheets. Try out some cooling eucalyptus sheets for warm summer months or some cozy flannel sheets to cuddle up in this winter.
- Floating Shelves
Floating shelves are a great way to save space if you live in a small home or apartment. Use them to store books, decorative items, kitchen goods, and more! They look ultra chic and can help you declutter your home.
- Whicker Baskets
Whicker baskets are another great upgrade to help declutter your space. Use them to store blankets, games, and more. Use them to organize clothing in your closet or towels in the bathroom.
- Drawer Organizers
Stop throwing everything in the bathroom and kitchen drawers haphazardly! Not only does it look cluttered, but it makes it more difficult to find your bobby pins or wine opener when you need them.
Invest in quality drawer organizers to keep your drawers neat and tidy. Have one in the kitchen for silverware and a few in the bathroom for skincare products, hair do-dads, and other toiletry items. Whenever you need something, you’ll know exactly where to look.
- Liven Up Bare Walls with Unique Artwork
Bare walls are boring! Hanging photographs and prints on your walls will help you take ownership of your space. Find some funky artwork to brighten up your home. You can find a ton of unique and affordable artwork online. Give your home a modern twist or add elegance with a classic piece. Change it up every few years to reflect who you are throughout your home.
