Self-storage is a great idea when you have personal items you don’t want to store in your home or in your garage. By finding a safe and secure self storage unit for those items, you’ll have an uncluttered home that you can truly spend time enjoying. (Also read, 5 Reasons Why You Need Self-Storage.)

Television has countless home decorating and DIY shows to give you the ideas and inspiration to do great things with your spaces. So when was the last time you did something to breathe new life into your home?

If your walls could talk what would they say? If they’re screaming for a change then it might be time to reassess your decor and furniture situation.

Below are some simple solutions to get your space ready for the new year.

Paint with all the colors of the wind

A fresh coat of paint can liven up any room. Pick a tone that reflects the mood you want to set for the new year. Bright, vibrant tones can create a positive energy in your life while neutral tones will add a calming effect to the space.

If you’re trying to make a certain area pop, then paint a wall an accent color that highlights the room’s best features.

A “bedder” situation

Furniture goes through a lot of wear and tear. Think about your chairs, your couches, even your bed. It’s best to update your chairs and couches every few years. If you’re on a tight budget you might want to slowly purchase furniture and buy one piece at a time.

Think of unique ways to mix and match styles, colors, and layout. There’s so much you can do and so many places you can draw inspiration from.

Wall decor

Replacing old wall decor can rejuvenate a space. Something that may have looked great a few years ago may not have the same charm it once had.

Update your walls with family vacation photos or maybe new artwork. Repurposing items can be a cheap alternative and you’ll add homemade works of art to your collection. If you can, consider a rotation of items for your wall, maybe even seasonal. Like anything else in your home, it’s all an expression of you.


A touch of green compliments any living space. Nurturing a live plant can be a challenge for many, but it can also add so much life to your space. If you don’t have a green thumb, you can always choose to use faux plants.

Decorating your room is a great option for new beginnings and starting the new year on the right foot. It’s not only a gift to yourself, but also a gift to your home.
