Ten Things That will Make You Love Your Home

Roses are red, violets are blue, when you take care of your home it will take care of you! This Valentine’s Day show your home some affection. Here are ten easy things to do to make you fall back in love with your home.


  1. Declutter your space

No matter the size of your home, living in a clutter-free space creates a sense of calm and helps de-stress. Reorganize, replace and recycle your way to tidiness.

  1. Repaint your faded front door. Replace your ill-fitting one.

Your front door can set the mood. What does it say about what you will find on the other side? A fresh paint on a faded front door can add value to your home. A well-functioning front door can help keep your home secure and help make your home more energy efficient.

  1. Rearrange your furniture and your knicknacks.

Spice things up a bit and try moving your furniture around your space. The new perspective could make you fall back in love with your most-used rooms.woman looking out window

  1. Wash dirty windows and replace old, drafty ones.

Dirty windows are hard to love. So are drafty, leaking ones. One of the best things you can do to show your home some love is replacing them with new energy-efficient, easy-to-clean replacement windows from Thompson Creek Window Company.

  1. Schedule a heating and cooling system tune-up.

Nothing makes you love your home more than one that is cozy in the winter and cool in the summer. Give the systems that keep you comfortable a little TLC.

  1. Try a new paint color.

Fall in love with the new trending colors for 2019. Check out these from Benjamin Moore and these from Sherwin Williams.

  1. Examine your gutters.

Blocked gutters and improperly functioning gutters can cause bigger problems inside your home. You won’t love it when gutters aren’t doing their job causing water to seep into your eaves and roofline and end up leaking into your ceiling.

  1. Clean your carpets.

Hire a professional carpet cleaning company to remove difficult stains and give your carpet a good deep cleaning. You may love your soft carpet underfoot, but it could be time to freshen it up.

  1. Check your lighting.

Nothing brightens up a room than the proper lighting. You will love the difference new LED bulbs make for your home. And try adding dimmer switches so you can adjust the ambiance in places like your dining room. 

  1. Find a new fragrance.

Follow your nose this Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget the power of the sense of smell. Try a new scented candle or room fragrance to set a mood in your home.
