HomeworX – 3 New Year’s Resolutions for your Home
You may have vowed to quit smoking, travel to new places, exercise more. or perhaps, spend more time with your family. But what about your home, the place where you spend most of the year? In the spirit of new beginnings, I thought I’d share, with you, 3 New Year’s Resolutions for your Home. They say that home is where the heart is, but a lovelier, well- organised, and more comfortable place to live will surely work wonders throughout the year.
1. Declutter and Organise your ‘STUFF’
One of the most effective and least expensive ways to feel better about your home is to clear it of all the clutter you’ve accumulated.
Every year, most of us acquire a ton of stuff, and without regular purging, cabinets and drawers get jam-packed, making it difficult to find the things you use, and you might agree – clutter can make your house look dirty and outdated.
This year, make the conscious decision to go room-by-room and remove anything that you don’t use, wear, or love, and donate it to charity. After that, think twice about what you bring into your home.
2. Spend Time on Home Improvement Projects Together
This year, try your hand at some cool home improvement projects with your family. These projects will not only improve your living space, but you will also get to spend lots of quality family time.
You can try some DIY projects. They’re a fun, creative way to spend time together, and completed, you’ll have something to enjoy together.
Build a garden, plant a tree, but most importantly, do it together.
3. Make it Safe and Sound
Your home may look wonderful and well-organised. Make sure to devote your efforts into making it safe, too.
Ensure that you’re not living with a potential fire danger, health risk, or security issue.
Besides installing fire detectors, check your house for gases, such as radon and carbon monoxide. The equipment needed to perform these tests are not particularly expensive. Remember to also keep your dryer’s lint trap clean.
With home security being such a hot subject around Midtown, install door and window alarms; they’re inexpensive.
I hope these new year’s tips set you on a positive path to accomplishing a safe, organised, comfortable home.
