New Year’s, a time to start fresh, motivation to eat healthy, save money or spend more time with family and friends. But what goals do you set for your home? Here are three tips to help you kick start your New Year’s resolutions for your home.
Get rid of stuff
There is nothing wrong with a little spring cleaning in January, right? It might be worth making a list of rooms you can start decluttering with unwanted things. Start small and take it room by room as to not get overwhelmed. Before you know it spring is right around the corner and you can spend time enjoying the warmer weather instead of decluttering your home. This tip in particular helps if you are planning on moving to a new home. This will keep things a bit more manageable when you do decide to move.
Simple maintenance of your home can not only save you money but can prevent costly damage to your home if not addressed. Easy steps like making sure there are rugs inside your home in front of the exterior doorways so during winter when tracking in snow you can prevent water damage to your flooring. Or making sure your dehumidifier is working properly this will help to remove moisture in the home. Another easy tip is changing out your furnace filter. Changing the filter on a regular basis will help to keep clean air circulating throughout your home and is more efficient for your furnace.
Give your house some TLC
The whirlwind of the holidays can throw off a lot and the last thing anyone is thinking about during Christmas dinner is giving your carpet a deep clean. Take some time to breathe, it might be just the right moment to freshen up the paint in your home that you have been meaning to get to. Great memories have been made in your home and a little extra time spent sprucing it up can help it recover from the holiday rush.
