New Year Resolutions Around The House
December 31, 2018 Written by DigitalRealtyX
With the holidays behind us, everyone is focused and motivated to start the New Year off right. While you’re out browsing the latest in home gym equipment, consider stopping by the local home improvement store and spend a little time on a New Year’s Resolution list for your home. Here are some of the best changes you can make now to improve your home.
- Clean Out The Garage
No need to wait for Spring to indulge in a good Spring Cleaning. While you are still trying to find room for the new Christmas decorations you splurged on this year, take the time to reorganize and purge the items you no longer need from the garage. Sell or donate anything you don’t need.
- Change The Flow Of Your House
Redecorating doesn’t need to cost a fortune. In fact, you can dramatically change the look and feel of your home simply by rearranging the furniture. If the flow of your home could use some help, take ideas from home magazines and move/remove the furniture.
- Take Care Of Your Honey-Do List
January is a great time to finally get to those small repairs and upgrades done around the house. Consider replacing toilet seats, replacing lights with energy-efficient bulbs, repair chipping or worn paint, add outdoor lighting.
- Add Value To Your Home
January often sees good sales on home appliances. Take advantage of the deals and increase your home’s value with upgraded appliances, fixtures and design details.
- Give Your Home An Education
Everything is becoming smarter these days…even our homes. Devices and systems that do everything from modulating the thermostat to making dinner reservations are available for home use. Home security systems, cameras and other lifestyle enhancing systems can not only protect your family, but decrease costs and increase home value.
New Year’s Resolutions are not just a great way to trim your waistline. Small changes lead to big results in home improvement as well. Use your determination to move more by putting that energy to use in adding value to your home.
