OMG, you're the second person I know who does this! My GF rearranges several times a year!!!
I'm just happy if I get the dusting done! Unfortunately, we have too much stuff in the house right now to allow for easy rearranging but I used to "reinvent" my surroundings about once every few years when I was in a smaller apartment.
I LOVE to rearrange furniture but I can't really do it anymore because of the cable line and the furniture really only fits one way now. DH used to say he would never get up in the middle of the night in the dark and presume there was a seat where it was when he went to bed because he never knew if I changed things after he went to bed.
~I grew up with a mom who loved to rearrange. It's still interesting to visit and see how she changes things around. I think it's a creative outlet for her.
I'm one of those plan, place and keep it that way people. I only rearrange if I'm removing or adding a piece or two of furniture or the room or area has changed function. It's never done for fun or a new aesthetic. ~
I used to move things around every few weeks - like others, it makes things fresh and new and is a lot easier than moving to a new place - which I also love doing. Unfortunately, the apartment I'm in now seriously limits my options with it arrangement of windows, doors, and a stupid place for a cable connection.
On the other hand, moving furnitaure takes a physical toll now so it's probably as well I don't do it as often. But I still do it within the limits possible. There's nothing better a whole new arrangement of the furniture! Living alone, no one else gets disgruntled with my footloose furniture.
