New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home
The New Year has arrived – you’ve vowed to lose those few extra pounds, spend more time with family and friends, save money, or perhaps you aim to travel to new places this year. But what goals have you set for your home?
Here are four resolutions for your home this year, in the perfect spirit of new beginnings!
1. Reduce Your Energy Use: Switch off the lights when you leave the room, turn off the taps while you’re brushing your teeth, install LED lightbulbs, or air-dry some of your clothes. These energy-saving efforts do not only contribute towards a healthier planet, but they will also significantly cut down your energy bills.
2. Create a Cleaning Schedule: We all dread cleaning but coming up with a solid plan to keep your house clean makes the process slightly more enjoyable! Devise a daily and weekly plan to keep the mess under control. You can also divide the jobs among your family members to speed up the process.
3. Get Organized: Getting rid of clutter is a simple and inexpensive way to feel better about your home. What could be better than starting the year with a clear and organized home? Try to periodically get rid of items you don’t need and create extra space for storage so your possessions can be packed away to eliminate the mess.
4. Make It More Welcoming: Give your space a few updates this year to make you feel like inviting people in. The addition of plants is a great way to decorate if you’re on a budget – they help to clean the air and brighten up the room. Adding a new rug or some accent pillows is another simple way to update your look. Take some time to rearrange your furniture so its orientation encourages conversation!
