Home Decor Tips for the New Year
With the end of the year just around the corner, we’re ready to stash all the Christmas decor and start 2018 with a fresh, clean slate. Try these home decor tips for the new year, and welcome 2018 from a beautiful place.
One of the least expensive ways to freshen things up is by banishing the clutter. Box up the Christmas decorations and recycle all those holiday cards, then take a good look around. Bookshelves, drawers, cupboards, entry tables and counter space can all become dumping grounds for clutter, so make time to go room by room and clear it all away. If you can’t find a home for it, consider donating, recycling or tossing.
For those useful but not-so-pretty essentials (shoes, remotes, keys, etc.), shop for stylish storage options like baskets and trunks, or bigger furniture pieces with ample concealed space.
Greenery – and beautiful faux plants can work too – is a great way to make your home seem a little more finished. Go for something dramatic, like this faux orchid arrangement, or give things a fresh, organic look with small, stylish groupings of small plants.

Incorporate a Few Great Accessories
Play up an accent color in your current home decor to freshen up your space. You can do this easily, with the addition of a few pillows or a throw, even a rug or runner. A few stylish new decor pieces can also have a big impact.
Rearranging your furniture is another low-budget means to an impressive end. Orienting your sofa and chairs into conversation groups – instead of everything pushed against the wall and facing the television – is inviting and stylish, and it sets the stage for entertaining.
Keep it Clean
Tidy nightly – no dishes in the sink or dirty clothes on the floor! – and make sure to dust and mop at least weekly. Committing to a clean, beautiful home will help you keep a lid on the mess, and it’s the best way to enjoy your favorite spaces.
