Gradually, lockdown restrictions posed by the COVID 19 pandemic are being eased globally. You probably couldn't wait for things to get back to normal, but after the lockdown, what next?. During the first few days of the lockdown, you might have been geared up to organise your home like never before. But as time passed, all the quarantine and lockdown activities must have worn you out, and so you were probably not able to be consistent. After all, you got all the time to do your favorite indoor stuff and stay at home, something you probably rarely had time to do pre-lockdown or even pre-COVID19. In this article, you'll be introduced to some amazing ways to get your home back in shape and looking fresh and welcoming to your family and guests, after the lockdown period.

  1. Organize your home and get rid of dirt

After all those Netflix-and-chill activities, you might just have to carry out a thorough cleaning and disinfection of your home. Do well to organize your wardrobe, books on the bookshelf, kids' toys, TV remotes, hubby's gamepads, your makeup kit, and shoe clutter. Clean and dust all furniture and home appliances, bedrooms, bathrooms, living room space, and kitchen. Keep sweet-scented candles and floral arrangements around to give your home a fresh and sweet smell.

  1. Trim your hedges, lawns, and backyard garden 

The outside of your home creates as much of an impression as the inside, so it will be nice to give it some attention. So take time to trim the hedges, mow the lawn and improve your backyard garden. And if you cannot do it yourself, get an expert gardener to take care of it. You need to give yourself and your guests, a nice, spacious view of the outdoor space of your home. The well-kept greenery will give your home a picture-perfect look as well.

  1. Keep outdoor space clean

Apart from the green area, there are other outdoor spaces you'll have to keep looking as great as the inside of the house. For example, the garage may have become the new playground for your kids, and so will need cleaning. Also, the walkway, patio, balcony, and barbeque area may also need some attention. Disinfect the necessary areas and create more space for more fun family activities.

  1. Give your kitchen a little boost

It's time you upgrade your kitchen and give it a clean and contemporary look. Upgrading your kitchen doesn't always have to be a major task. Small changes and renovations can also go a long way. Change old and rusty door knobs and handles, clear all countertops, shelves, and cabinets, give your sink a good shine, and clean electrical appliances. To give it a touch of luxury, you can emboss the walls with statement wall designs or paint with neutral or cheerful colors. A simple addition like restaurant quality tablecloths from Richard Haworth is sure to give your kitchen a little burst of life. 

  1. Replace old drapes, curtains, and coverings

Consider replacing old napkins, table mats, pillow covers, bedsheets, and hand towels with new ones with more modern and colourful designs. This adds a little colour to the ambience of whichever space they occupy in your home.

When replacing curtains, make sure that you focus on the entire curtain but also the fixtures that go with it. This can create a surprising difference in the different rooms that you do this in. For example, you may want to go with traditional farmhouse curtain rods if you want a more rustic look in your room, or you can go with something a little more sleek and modern if you want to focus on a minimalistic design. For certain choices, we suggest having a thickset for when you want to keep out the sun and/or the cold, and a thinner pair when you want your room to appear brighter and less cluttered since it can let in more light.

  1. Re-invent your interior d├ęcor

Boost your rooms' atmosphere with picturesque and chic designs. Statement wallpapers can be used if you cannot afford a new painting. Chandeliers, mirrors, and a portrait gallery on your walls will give your home a sophisticated and classy look. Nice floral arrangements and carpets with unique designs can also be of great help to achieve a fresh new look for your home after lockdown.

  1. Keep windows and doors clean

While you're cleaning, don't forget the doors and windows. Re-paint your doors if you can afford to, or you can choose to give your front door a new look. Keep windows, curtain panels, and rods clean and sparkling. Also, use quality glass cleaning detergents for your glass doors, bedroom, and bathroom mirrors and windows, as the glass brings in sunlight and gives your interior a natural and spacious look. 

By adding these tips to your post lockdown to-do list, you will spend more great times with your friends and family and come home to a fresh and relaxing ambiance. If you feel you cannot carry out all these tricks by yourself, let the kids and your partner help. It is a great way to bond as a family when you all work to achieve this together. You can also employ or engage the assistance of an expert. Professional cleaning services, home remodeling service providers, as well as interior decorators, can be very useful in times like this.
