With the new year approaching, it’s important to set new goals for ourselves. If we learned anything from quarantine life, it’s that we need to make our home a place that we’ll enjoy being confined to for long periods of times—because, hey, we’re still in a pandemic.

Like with almost any new goal plan, major overhauls are not necessary. Simple changes can make a huge difference. Give grungy-looking walls a refresh with a new coat of paint. Buy a fresh set of dishes in a faux marble finish to make every meal feel like a fine dining experience. Add wall sconces to a room to give it a feel of old world charm. Upgrade your cheap booze by displaying it on a fancy bar cart—it might not be top shelf but at least it will look like it is.

Below are 5 suggestions to upgrade your decor in 2022.
