The new year is in full swing and January has come and gone fast. With a month into your new year’s resolutions, it’s important to keep positive and moving forward.
Setting new year resolutions is great, but don’t leave out resolutions for your home in the process. As you begin your goals, here is a list of home improvement resolutions that will make your home the clean, efficient, and entertainment place to be this year.
One of the most common ways people neglect their home is by not painting it. Start the year off with a new you and a new color to your home. It is a good safety practice to paint your home especially to remove any potentially hazardous lead paint that might still be hanging on.
Fun Fact: Every year you add a lot more things to your home than you take out. Start this year off by taking time periodically to remove the ‘stuff’ that is clogging up space around the house. A great rule to follow is if you don’t use it on a daily basis store it away or clear it out.
Upgrade Your Home
Adding new technology modernizes your home. Buying new voice command gadgets can make the little things a lot easier. Amazon and Google have both released home assistants that will play music, tell you the time, and help you with day-to-day knowledge and tasks such as turning off lights.
Make a resolution this year to set up a weekly system to tackle tasks around the entire home. Don’t try and clean everything every day, but instead set small chores such as cleaning a room a day, or wiping the counters at the end of the night. Set goals for your family to get done and before you know it these chores will become a habit, and you’ll have a clean home every night of the week.
Having a green friendly home
Going green is not just about adding solar panels and having hybrid accessories around the house. The best cost-efficient way to go green this new year is done by adopting common-sense habits to your home routine. Save money and go green by switching off the lights when you leave a room, dial down your air conditioner, and switch to fluorescent light bulbs.
A resolution that is brought up every year is to be more social and connect with friends. One of the best ways to keep your home from looking and feeling dull is to invite friends and family over. The company will add a warm feel throughout the house. Make your house the place to be this year.
