2. Play around with new artwork and prints 

Artwork looks great and can truly add lots of character to a home. However, when you've been looking at the same piece everyday for years, you'll eventually stop appreciating it, and it'll simply become a regular piece in your home. Over time, you might want to switch up your artwork. Either move them to a different part of your home or consider swapping them out for other pieces, like art prints, which are often more affordable.
