3 New Year’s Resolutions for your Home
Posted: January 15, 2019 by Alan Tucker
New Year’s resolutions can be for more than just personal growth—you can have a few resolutions this year for your home! There are a number of things you can strive for that can improve your home in 2019, and one of those things is to declutter and spruce up different spaces in your home! In addition, another resolution is to strive to create a weekly cleaning system that ensures that your home is always clean and tidy! Lastly, you can prepare your home to entertain and strive to do so more often! As with most New Year’s resolutions, the key to accomplishing these goals is by staying committed and staying on top of it!
Declutter your Home
Every year you acquire new things and further fill your home with these items; however, most homeowners seldom take things out of their home as often as they bring things in! For your New Year’s resolution, make a conscious effort to go room by room picking out things that you no longer want or need! In addition, you can always find clothes that no longer fit or you no longer want, and such things can be donated to charity to help someone who does need it! By making this organization of your home a regular part of your routine, you’ll find that your home will become less cluttered and more open in a short amount of time! In addition, by making this a regular occurrence it won’t feel like you’re overworking yourself to have your home be organized!
Get in the Routine to Clean
This resolution is similar to the previous one about decluttering in that you should strive to make cleaning your home a regular part of your weekly routine! To begin with, get on top of the various chores that should be done daily, like putting dirty dishes in the dishwasher and ensuring that dirty clothes are stored in the hamper! By setting the foundation of accomplishing these small tasks daily, you prepare yourself to tackle the bigger, weekly tasks! Such tasks include changing the sheets on your bed, dusting each surface in your home, and vacuuming the high traffic areas of your home! Again, these tasks may seem simple, but it will take a certain level of self-discipline to continuously get these things done week after week!
Often times us as homeowners say that we’d like to entertain more or make more use of certain entertainment spaces in our home! As such, it’s important to freshen up certain spaces and bring a new look to outdated or tired spaces! This doesn’t mean that you have to have a full-blown remodel, but small changes here and there can transform a space! Once you’ve made your touch-ups, what better way to put the space to the test than to entertain in it? Your guests will appreciate the changes that you’ve made and there look forward to coming back! Anytime you strive to entertain more often in your home, you have to be comfortable with the spaces within your home and make the most of what you have!
With these resolutions in mind, you’ll be able to make important changes in your home that you’ll see make a difference as the year progresses!
