Say goodbye to the things that have served you well and welcome in the new!
With the turn of the new year comes the yearly bout of spring cleaning and with it, the perfect chance to shake things up and redecorate while you do.
HERE ARE 5 TIPS FOR REDECORATING YOUR SPACE FOR THE NEW YEAR.
GET REACQUAINTED WITH YOUR FLOOR PLAN
Spring cleaning is oftentimes an arduous process, with furniture moved about as you clean and make way for the new year. Make the most of it by reacquainting yourself with your floor plan as you clean your way through! A good sense of the space you have is vital for picturing and planning what and where you could put something as you redecorate.
TAILOR THE SPACE
Consider the people who use the space while you redecorate. You might be redecorating your living room which you, other adults, as well as your kids regularly use – does the furniture fit and accommodate all of you?
The furniture you choose should be chosen with those who use it in mind. With your kids in the house, for example, softer and steadier furniture like Lou Lou James’ CAMA™ 2-in-1 bed divans and Giant Star Pouffe Cushions would guarantee safety while remaining comfortable and stylish.
Check out Lou Lou James’ JUEGO™ play table as well! Made of solid wood with a thick rim to prevent your kids’ toys and crayons from falling off, the JUEGO™ play table is at the perfect height for your kids to use. Additionally, its sleek design allows it to double as a side table, fitting perfectly into whatever style you choose to go with.
FORM AND FUNCTION
You don’t have to sacrifice functionality for aesthetics. With the right furniture, style and function can go hand-in-hand.
Lou Lou James' ALTA™ is an adjustable learning tower designed with both form and function in mind, its modern style sure to fit in any home all the while being a way for your kids to reach countertops safely. Lou Lou James’ NAMU™ is another multifunctional piece of furniture – folding out as a magical tree perfect for decorating nurseries while doubling as a hanger stand.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN
Redecorating doesn’t mean you have to throw everything out and start from scratch. Keep the things that matter to you and incorporate them into your new style of the year. ‘In with the new and out with the old,’ but don’t lose that sense of home while you do so – new things can coexist with the things you love.
Remember, this is your space. Let your style reflect that.
GIVE YOURSELF ROOM TO GROW
Finally, while taking the opportunity to redecorate this spring, remember that you don’t have to fill up every bit of space you have. After all, it’s only the start of the year.
Save some space for the surprises that might come by – you never know what the new year might bring!
