New Year, New Style?

Now that it’s 2019, it’s time to declutter and update our homes! This will get us in the right mindset to take on the rest of the year and prepare us for any challenges that may come our way. Read on to find out how to declutter, clean and update your home, and how a new wardrobe from the Sliding Door Wardrobe Company could change your life!

Declutter

The first step you should take is to declutter. This will get rid of any excess within your home and give you space to add more in the future.

Start with your clothes, as this is the easiest place. Go through them and remove the ones that don’t fit you any more or that you don’t wear. Rather than throwing them away, consider donating them to help someone in need, or selling them to earn yourself a little extra money!

Get yourself a new wardrobe from the Sliding Door Wardrobe Company to organise your remaining clothes and keep them hidden and out of the way. With their huge variety of wardrobe interiors, you can tailor yours to suit your specific needs!

Next, declutter the rest of your home. Go through each drawer and cupboard and get rid of things you no longer want or need. Not only will this leave you with extra space that you didn’t have before, it will help you to feel refreshed.

Clean

While you are in the decluttering phase, it is a good idea to clean at the same time. As you empty each drawer and cupboard, wipe it down before you put the items you are keeping back.

Clean out your fridge and scrub it. Clean your bathroom. Dust the highest shelves in your home. Move furniture and hoover underneath.

Update

Once your house is decluttered and completely clean, it will feel so much better to update it. Updating can involve buying entirely new furniture, but it can also be simple, easy and budget friendly.

Changing your bedding or adding a few new cushions and a throw to your couch can be incredibly effective. You could also add a couple of plants or new décor pieces.

Even moving furniture around to produce a different layout or painting it can give a room a new lease of life.

While getting a new kitchen isn’t feasible for most of us, consider swapping out the cabinet handles for something you like more. Doing this can give a kitchen a whole new vibe.

And that’s it!

With a clean and tidy home, a selection of organised clothes in your new wardrobe, a couple of fun cushions and your new kitchen handles, you’ll be ready to take on 2019!
