New year, new hope, new beginnings. If there’s ever the best time to update your home, this is it! After the chaotic holidays, it’s time to put away the outdated décors and plan for a new theme to stick to for the whole year. Here’s how to get started with your new year decorating plans.
Decluttering is probably the easiest way to refresh your home for the new year. Start by getting rid of unused stuff that is only collecting dust and hogging your valuable space. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t used something for six months, you have more than one of the same item, the item has no sentimental value or you don’t even like it, or if the item doesn’t serve any other purpose aside from being decorative, perhaps it’s time to let that thing go.

Add Pops of Color
If you’re still rocking 2021’s color of the year, it’s about time to change things up. After all, a new color scheme sparks inspiration and attracts more positive vibes. You can always repaint your walls if you’re looking for something grand, but if you don’t want to make a drastic change, you can always start small by switching your throw pillows and adding some houseplants.
If you’re superstitious, colors also play a huge role in attracting luck and wealth. You may want to have more of reds and purples if that is your goal. In the meantime, blues and greens are excellent choices if you’re hoping for some peace of mind.

Improve Your Indoor Lighting
With the winter gloom, supplemental indoor lighting is not just essential but is quite refreshing. Bright spaces are always ideal, even more so in periods of extended darkness when moving is a chore and motivation is hard to come by. Additional lighting also helps make a cramped space feel ten times bigger, so it’s something that you should consider if you’re looking to make your home feel roomier and more welcoming.

Transform Your Old Furniture
Updating your home for the new year doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. You don’t need to renovate an entire room, let alone the whole house. Sometimes, all it takes is replacing an old piece of furniture, or even better, breathing new life into an otherwise outdated item that you may have forgotten about.
Ava’s Attic is home to some of the most amazing consigned pieces of furniture, but they have the best painters too! If you want your beloved treasure transformed, like this chalk-painted white dresser, give them a visit.
As you can see, it is relatively easy and inexpensive to give your space a refresh for the new year. For more furniture and décor ideas to complete your 2022 remodeling goals, check out Ava’s Attic on Facebook.
