1. Re-arrange the two most important rooms in your home.
Take a look at where you spend most of your time when you’re home. This will help you select which area to pick for this step. In each room try and move the items into a different place, ask for help for heavy items. Consider the feng shui when moving your stuff. Sometimes moving your bed or couch to the other wall can make all of the difference in terms of lighting, flow, and space.
When you get your items to their new space check the comfy-ness level. Do the couch cushions need to be fluffed? Do you need a new bed cushion or down pillow inserts?

Refreshes can turn into complete overhauls quickly so avoid going overboard so you can complete the next two steps.
