If you’re considering a move to Ontario’s largest city, searching through the real estate in Toronto can be overwhelming. Make a wants and needs list and a deal-breaker and priority list.
When searching for properties online, keep your list handy. Start your search with your deal breakers, then your needs, and finally your wants. The list will keep you focused and on the right track. Once you have your perfect home – below are a few ways to make it feel special.
Before you move all your belongings into your new home, give the home a thorough cleaning. While cleaning, you may come across things that need to be repaired or replaced, keep a small notepad handy, to take notes. Start with cleaning a bathroom as people will need to use this throughout the day. Move on to the kitchen and other rooms in the house.
Having one room completely put together where you can unwind at the end of a busy day(s) is essential. If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.
Fresh Cut Flowers
Pretty flowers in a nice vase instantly make your house feel like a home.
Not only do they look nice, but the aroma of fresh flowers will brighten your day every time you look at them.
When was the last time you switched up the artwork on your walls? If you had to think a bit to answer that, you’re probably overdue for a refresh. Switching up your art is one of the easiest ways to refresh a room.
Small accents go a long way in personalizing your home’s decor. Throw pillows, floor pillows, and throw blankets can be swapped out or moved whenever you feel like it. Bring attention to the floor by layering colorful rugs and make your windows look less bare with a set of flowing curtains. Empty space can be filled with plants – not only will they freshen your new home’s air, but they complement any design style, from the most casual to the most sophisticated.
If you are looking for a welcoming atmosphere for you and your friends – dim lighting, smooth background music, soft cushion/pillows, and comfortable furniture. Add a glowing fireplace light, and your place is ready for a perfect warm evening.
