In between the chaos of parenthood and running errands, an average American spends approximately an hour trying to clean the house. But sometimes, no matter how great the amount of cleaning is done, the home environment remains dull and empty. It still does not feel and look good. Then you’ll begin to wonder: what’s wrong?
Probably you need to spice up a little and breathe new life to your house by not only cleaning it but as well as decorating at the same time. Of course, there are people who are professional on those levels, but you don’t need to spend lots of money to freshen up the look of your house. Here are easy ways on how you can make your house look clean and fresh.
1. Rearrange your furniture.
To add new life to your room, try rearranging the furniture. You may ask the family members or friends to help you with this. This does not only give a different look on your space by simply moving the tables, chairs, and sofa, this also allows you to check the cleanliness of those parts of the house which are often neglected when cleaning. Take that time as well to wipe those furniture. Now, this will certainly give a clean and fresh look to your house.
2. Frame printables from Google or those artworks that you have.
Your walls look too dull? Maybe it needs a little repainting or revamp by adding artworks or frames in them. Nah, you don’t need to buy those extremely expensive artworks, you can simply search on Google or Pinterest some designs that would look good on your walls. Print them from your computer. Put them on frames. Wipe or scrub the dirt from the wall, and voila! What an amazing piece of art you have in there!
3. Do a pillow and rug rotation.
Seeing the same set of pillow and being greeted by the same “welcome” rug can become demotivating at times. Change the whole color scheme of the living room by simply swapping rugs and pillows from the bedroom. These are simple yet fun and inexpensive means of upgrading the looks of your home. It can also serve as a reminder that you already have to wash those pillows and rugs from all the dust and dirt they have accumulated.

4. Display photos in a gallery.
Travel down memory lane and display those photos that you have. Dust them off and proudly place them on prominent areas of the house – living room, bedroom, or hallway. You may as well place them on top of the tables or cabinets. This might look simple but putting photographs around the house makes the area more personal and homey.
See? Redecorating the house does not require a lot of superpowers. And the results do not only give a comfortable ambiance but also ensures cleanliness as this entails a little sweeping, wiping, and dusting off. That’s hitting two birds with one stone!
