Yes, that’s right — you can make resolutions for your home just like you can for yourself and your family. No matter how recently your house was remodeled or renovated, there are always more projects to do and things to maintain.
Start 2018 off right by making a few of these New Year’s Resolutions to keep your home looking fresh and beautiful throughout the rest of the year.
A Place for Everything
Many of us end the holiday season with new stuff that we receive as gifts. If you don’t make a plan for where each new item will go, it can quickly grow roots in wherever it lands when you bring it through the door.
Sound familiar? If you haven’t already done so, spend some time making a plan for you new possessions and clearing out anything you need in order to make room for them. Do the same thing when you receive gifts for your birthday or other occasions throughout the year.
The beginning of a new year is a great time to declutter and re-evaluate what you do and do not need in your home. The days are short, and the weather is cold in most places so make the most of the extra indoor time by getting organized.
Tackling the To-Do List
Once you have all of your stuff accounted for, it’s time to focus on the bigger picture for your home. What are those projects you always say that you’re going to do but never seem to get around to actually doing? Make a list and create a plan to tackle them this year.
There’s something very gratifying about making a to-do list and crossing things off of it. You probably do this already at work or in other aspects of your life so why not do it at home, too? You are entirely in control of the projects and the timeline. You might choose a mixture of small tasks and larger projects that are broken down into smaller, more manageable chunks.
Track your goals and your progress in a planner, a to-do list app like Wunderlist or Evernote, or maybe even a whiteboard somewhere in your home where your family can get in on the action.
Schedule a Renovation
Finally, if 2018 is the year that your home will undergo a renovation, schedule it now so it’s on the calendar and you have time to prepare. The sooner you schedule something, the sooner you can enjoy something new in your home!
