Do you believe in New Year’s resolutions
? Do you make and keep your New Year’s resolutions? If so, you are one of the few who can admit to following through with their New Year’s resolutions. There are many reasons why people make commitments for the new year. Maybe the new year gives them the initiative to do things that would not be possible in other circumstances. Whatever the case may be, New Year’s resolutions do not need to be limited to personal improvement. You can apply the same New Year’s tradition to home improvement, as well as personal improvement.
New Year’s Home Improvement Resolutions
Declutter The Clutter
Living in the same environment year after year can dull your senses over time. There is no time like the new year to start decluttering your home. It is obvious, clutter is unappealing. But did you know, clutter is hazardous to your well-being? It is believed, too much clutter can have a negative impact on the mentality. So much so, it could lead to intermittent confusion, stress, and depression.
Do not delay decluttering your home any longer. Make this your New Year’s resolution and see improvement in your living space in no time flat.
Do you ever find yourself turning in circles when tasked with finding misplaced items like your car keys? You can blame this mess on whatever you would like, but when it comes down to it, the problem is nothing short of disorganization.
With decluttering out of the way, it is time to start getting organized. Invest in storage containers, such as file cabinets, folders, shelves, and pieces of furniture with hidden storage. Organize important documents, placing them in folders and then the file cabinet. Utilize labels to market storage containers before storing them away.
Additional storage space, such as a detached shed or garage will come in handy for this project. Furniture with hidden storage can be utilized to ensure quick access to important documents, children’s toys, throws, family photo albums, and outerwear (light jacket or sweater).
Cleaning Out Your Closet
You want to begin using your closet again. Right now, you can’t because it is overloaded with clothes and other items. It is essential to sort out this item as quickly as possible. Start getting rid of these items promptly. Your options are plentiful since you can throw them away, donate them, sell them, or recycle them. If you need help, call our office and we’ll send one of our technicians to your home.
Add More Efficiency
An efficient home will save you money in the long run. In the New Year, you should begin working diligently to make your more home efficient. Buy a smart thermostat because it’ll control your HVAC system automatically and save you energy and money. You can also use smart outlets, smart switches, smart lights, and other smart home appliances. If your faucet is using too much water, switch to a more efficient one. Do what you can to improve the efficiency of your home so you can protect the environment and save money.
Protecting Your Home
Begin taking steps to ensure that your home is protected to the fullest. If your home’s security system is lacking, you need to change that right away. It is wise to install a home security system. Doing so will give you peace of mind whether you’re away or sleeping in bed. You’ll also want to install flood detectors, fire alarms, and carbon monoxide detectors. Don’t forget that these items need to be replaced regularly. Create a schedule to ensure that your loved ones will always be protected to the fullest.
Don’t overwhelm yourself. If you add too many projects to your list, you’re going to regret it. Whether you’re decorating your home or planning your day, it is wise to embrace minimalism. In many cases, less is more. Start decluttering your home and your lifestyle. Give yourself some time to breathe. You’ll also want to avoid putting too much emphasis on material belongings. Remember that other things in life tend to matter more.
Take On Improvement Projects
Start working on home improvement projects. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. However, you should start getting these things done. Waiting is only going to let the problem worsen. If you need to change your faucet or toilet, get it done. Tackle small DIY home improvement projects until you get everything done.
It is vital to ensure that our home is cleaned regularly. Cleaning it once or twice a week isn’t going to cut it. Instead, you need to schedule regular cleanings to ensure that your efforts are worth it. Remember that certain tasks need to be completed daily while others need to be done once or twice a week. Therefore, you should create a calendar to ensure that these things get taken care of properly and regularly.
For instance, you can wash your dishes every day. As for your clothes, they can be washed once or twice a week. It is a good idea to dust your ceiling fans several times each month. Create a schedule and stick with it.
