Six home decor tasks you should tackle before letting your girlfriend move in

Six home decor tasks you should tackle before letting your girlfriend move in

If it’s been awhile since your home or apartment has had a woman’s touch, then it’s probably due for some cleaning and redecorating before you invite one over. There’s some truth to the stereotype that men tend to be less concerned with the care of their home and it can be a major turn-off for your romantic interest you’ve been courting. So if you’re finally ready to take the step of letting her live with you, there are a few things you need to do first.

Clean the bathroom

If you’ve been living alone, there’s a good chance that the bathroom has been neglected. Hairs around the sink and toilet and yellow stains around the toilet bowl are going to put on a damper on things straightaway so it’s the first thing you should tackle. It’s not enough to just pick up the clothes on the floor. If you don’t already have the necessary cleaning supplies, invest in some good cleaning products--the stuff with bleach in it that actually kill germs. You’ll need to deep clean the entire bathroom getting every square inch of the toilet, floor, mirror, sink, countertops, and bath/shower.

Invest in some new sheets

Sheets start to take on a smell overtime even after they’ve been laundered plus they start to look faded and worn out. If you only do one thing to your bedroom, replace the sheets with new ones. This is one purchase you don’t want to skimp on. Get something high quality with a high thread count that will last a long time and feel nice on the skin.

Improve the smell

No matter how nice you clean up, your home still won’t seem inviting if it doesn’t smell good, even if it doesn’t exactly smell bad. For a few dollars and a little bit of time you can have the whole home or apartment smelling great by lighting some candles or by plugging in some kind of fragrance diffuser. If you know favorite scents, go with those.

Get rid of the dorm room decor

Since it won’t be just your home anymore, you don’t get to call all the interior decorating shots. If you’ve still got foam fingers from back in your college days or band, movie, or team posters or other "bro decor" in your home, you’re going to have to take it down so can feel comfortable in the home as well. You don’t have to throw out everything, you can set aside a space for yourself and turn it into a man cave that you can decorate to your heart’s content.

Make room for her things

Unless she’s one of those rare females that has very few belongings, she’s going to require a decent amount of space--in the closet, bathroom, and dresser especially but probably elsewhere as well. You might as well go through your things and get rid of stuff you don’t want or need anymore now before she moves in so she has plenty of space to unpack into.

Install baseboard radiator covers

While those old baseboard radiators that line the walls of your home might add some vintage charm, they can be an eyesore. Fortunately, you can make them look a lot nicer without tearing them out by simply installing baseboard radiator covers over them.
