Curtains and drapes:

Plain curtains are sometimes boring and leave your house looking ordinary. To take these a notch higher, consider adding some print, tie and die or ombre patterns to your plain curtains. Simple wood or metal rods also do so much in improving the site of any room.

Deep cleaning and dusting:

Whether used or unused, space will gather dirt after a period of time. It will affect the look sinks, floors, roofs and anything in the house. Opting to give a thorough scrub to some of your home times, will make them super attractive and more user friendly.

Always take time to deep clean your house to give it a fresh look.

Declattering and organizing: 

Avoid keeping and buying things you do not use in your living space. This keeps your house personalized, spaced and inviting. Use boxes to organise shoes, tools, appliances and any other stuff that are not in use. Organizing your clothes or utensils according to color, material, and size is always a plus. Let your creative juices flow. 

Always keep your wardrobe organised.
