1.  Carving out an office space

It is possible that having to work on your couch, or your dining table has not been as productive as you expected. The lack of the familiar ambiance peculiar to the office space has robbed you of the opportunity to meet up with work deadlines.

Creating a solid work niche in your apartment could be the perfect solution. Since most houses come with multiple closets, there is a high likelihood of having an empty or shabbily populated one. Such cabinets that merely serve non-essential purposes can be cleared out, and fitted with furniture and other work essentials.

2.  Wax up your tiles and sanitary porcelains

3.  Improve your entryway

And since your prolific excuse for leaving it that way has been lack of time, this would be an excellent time to put a touch to the entryway. Add a comfy rug, put up an alluring wallpaper, you could even draw graffiti that reflects your interest – if you possess artistic abilities, and the house is not rented.

4.  Introduce a new touch of paint

If your home has a fireplace that has enjoyed use in recent years, there are every likelihood flame stains mark the upper wall. Clean the chimney or vent, tidy the stove, and give the rim a fresh paint job. In cases where you have toddlers or pets in the home, rubbing against the wall could have caused stains in some parts of the house. Choose colors that fit the theme of the space, and do a retouch to the particular walls. Another part of the house that could need a touch of paint is kitchen cabinets.

5.  Attach thin Styrofoam layers to your exercise gear

It is a common sight in some homes to find fitness gears like dumbbells, heavyweight, or push up handles. Protective layers of rubber that wear off can be easily replaced with attractive Styrofoam to prevent blisters during exercise. You could equally upgrade your gear by ordering from an online store like Sparnet.

6.  Bring in the outdoors

Enjoy ‘friluftsliv’ during the times you spend indoors. If there a vacant space in the apartment that seems unattractive, fill it up with a pot of green plant.
