Did the holidays leave your house looking a little topsy-turvy? We can’t blame you. From the countless parties to family reunions and all sorts of prepping for Christmas day, things are bound to get out of hand. There’s no need to lose sleep over it, though—there’s still time to make sure your home looks amazing for 2017. Before things go back into full swing, here’s a list of things you can do: 

1. Return all your Christmas decorations back in storage.

Don’t wait for Valentine’s Day to take your giant tree down—it should be back in the closet as soon as the calendar hits the 15th. Same goes for the rest of your ornaments, Santa Claus figurines and lights, too!

3. Give your walls the makeover it deserves.

New Year? New look! Go ahead and coat your walls in your favorite hue for a change. If you are feeling adventurous, you can also go the extra mile and pick from Boysen’s Color Trends for 2017 including Designer Denim, Rebel Yell, High Society, Tuscan Sun, Fine Wine and Pink of Wealth.

4. Drop off your donate pile to charities.

The start of the year is the perfect time to purge your home of things you no longer have use for. Once you’ve separated your must-haves from the rest, make sure you give them away immediately before it turns to clutter.
