February is a month that celebrates love, and most often we tend to think of sweethearts and spouses. But that can also extend to include our children, parents, pets and ourselves!
Since everyone else seems to be on this list, don’t forget to shower your home with a little extra attention too. It provides that safe place for you to relax and enjoy those special people in your life. Plus everyone can benefit from them!
Here are seven special things you can do for your home this month.
Out of sight, out of mind? It happens. So while you’re thinking of cleaning, think of cleaning the things that aren’t readily seen, like the inside of the microwave, the oven, the washing machine, window sills. The list could go on and on.
Is it too much to think of decluttering your ENTIRE home? If so, pick just one area to organize. Whether it’s as small as a junk drawer or coat closet or as big as your kitchen cabinets or garage, just make sure it’s doable so you feel successful.
Go ahead and tackle that squeaky door, broken faucet handle or stuck drawer. Little things like this can build up over time or become bigger problems, so just take a little extra time to cross them off the list you keep putting aside.
Aim a little higher to remove the dust on ceiling fans and light fixtures. It can be easy to disregard these since they are typically out of reach, but make time to address these areas. There’s no better time than now!
You get plenty of use out of these items, so consider getting some new ones. It may seem like a small gesture, but it can feel like a splurge, especially if you get the higher end. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of them!
Tired of looking at the same photos or artwork? Give your home a new look simply by updating photos and artwork. Another option is to rearrange them, possibly even moving them to new rooms or putting them in new frames.
If your appliances are older or outdated, consider if it’s time to replace them and possibly even upgrade them. Not only will this give your home the refresh that you can enjoy, but also it will boost its appeal if you’re planning on selling in the near future.
