As the year ends, we tend to reflect back on the year that has just passed in a whirlwind of events. It was January, but before you realized, December arrived, marking the end. But when things end, it’s only with a promise of something better. Like the birth of a new phoenix youngling from its own ashes, with the coming of a New Year we hope for renewed strength, a revitalised vigour and a refreshed perspective. From our cycles of reflections and ponderings, we distil ideas that we resolve to do in the New Year.
Resolutions that are formed in the heat of the moment are generally hard to keep. One needs to be rational and logical while planning to do something. It would be wise to not make a resolve for something which is way out of your league. We suggest that you start small, like may be bringing those small changes in your interiors that you’ve always wanted to but not yet taken time out for?
When it comes to interiors, small changes, with a clever use of your limited resources, can make your home New Year ready!
Read to find out the furniture resolutions you should be undertaking this New Year.
1. The Upkeep
The furniture that you bought oh-so lovingly might look plain and old without a regular cycle of upkeep and maintenance. Resolve to find time from your much-too-busy-schedule and take care of your furniture. Regular varnishing, cleaning, vacuuming, disinfecting, etc., are needed to keep your furniture from becoming a nest of diseases.
2. Discarding the golden era furniture
Furniture that has long since gone out of trend needs to be replaced. Old is gold, yes, but only when it is in good shape and condition. The rickety furniture that has lost its charm, deteriorating your interior and tarnishing your reputation, is in no sense Gold. Loosen the knot and invest in good space-savvy, multi-utilitarian furniture that is not just beautiful to look at but is comfortable to use as well.
You can browse from the options available online or get Wooden Street’s help to get a custom-made furniture scaled perfectly to your requirements.
3. Buy paintings
No, we don’t expect you to buy a Van Gogh or an M.F. Hussain (unless your budget really allows you to, in which case, hey, go for it!) but buy some large sized paintings and splash colours and contrasts in all their glory in your interiors. Bare walls are out of trend this 2018, and frankly we are thankful. Empty walls look mournful. Cheap replicas and piece-art wall paintings available online will rescue your interiors and cheer up your gloom-infested home.
4. Invest in Console tables, Cabinets and Kitchen Trolleys
Buy beautiful console tables to display your collection of passionately collected show-pieces. They somehow complete your interiors and give them that lived-in feeling and that warmth, ideally characteristic of a home.
Kitchen Cabinets prove to be the ideal solution as a hide-out storage and provide a clean appearance to your home, with there now being a dedicated space for all the clutter that builds up over the years. This clutter, which is not worth throwing away in the trash or giving away to charity because you never know when you might need it, can now be stored efficiently.
Kitchen Trolleys are a home maker’s best friend. They help you navigate dining problems with an efficiency that just can’t be achieved in their absence.
Resolve to invest in these small-scale furniture accessories this year that are charming essentials in your home, and will definitely put a smile on your face.
5. Buy new curtains and cushions
Interiors can never have enough pairs of curtains or cushions. Whatever be the occasion, a change of curtains and cushions can swiftly mould the tone of your interiors accordingly. They provide for a natural turn and generate a celebratory touch to the ambience of your home. This new year, resolve to build you collection of curtains and cushions for an effective ready-for-every-mood interior.
