Breaking up can be hard, especially when it comes to your own personal style. But if you don’t love an item in your home, it is probably time to end that relationship. Here is our advice for when to keep trying and when to hit the road.
Ever come across a piece of furniture that felt like it needed saving? While that IS admirable, putting in the time and expense to fix a broken piece of furniture needs careful consideration. If it turns out you aren’t as crafty as you had hoped, it’s okay to let it go. You could always salvage part of the piece and reuse it for other projects.
Your style has changed
“It’s not you, it’s me.” You are an always evolving human and sometimes that means that things you previously loved just don’t fit your style anymore. But you are allowed to switch it up anytime you want. If you have invested in a fantastic piece, it will still be a fantastic piece for someone else, so try to sell or give away your quality item.
You never REALLY liked it
If you secretly hate something in your home, then what are you waiting for? Move on! If it is not working FOR you, it is working AGAINST you, and it’s time for it to go. The things you use every day should be useful and make you happy. Keeping furniture you don’t really LOVE is a waste of space and energy.
It doesn’t fit
Your furniture needs to fit in your space, end of story. If you need to save it for later, like an antique or a family heirloom, find a way to store it or loan it out to someone to watch over it. But CRAMMING items into your home won’t help because your home is for living, not storage.
