A new year is upon us, full of hope, promise, and new aspirations. That means, most likely, that you’re starting off 2015 with a list of resolutions that you hope to check off one by one over the coming months.
Maybe your goal is to shed a few pounds or strengthen your relationships. Or perhaps you want to take on a new and exciting challenge. Whatever your objective, a new year provides great opportunity to put the past behind us and start fresh.
But as you strive to better yourself, don’t forget to make a few resolutions for your home, as well. After all, your home is a reflection of you, so make sure it’s a good one. Here are a few maintenance goals that will have your home looking its best and performing like a maestro in the coming year and beyond.
Curb the Excess
Find the areas of your home that are wasting precious resources. Inspect all toilets and faucets for leaks, invest in water-conserving fixtures or aerators, unplug electronics and small appliances when not in use, and plug up sources of heat loss like gaps around windows and doors.
Get a Makeover
Brighten up a dark, dingy room with a fresh coat of paint, add colorful accents to your living space, or freshen up a dated bathroom with a new vanity, toilet, and light fixture. You don’t have to spend a lot to achieve a big transformation.
Less is More
Look for areas of your home that could benefit from a little purging. Remember, if you haven’t used it in the past 12 months, chances are you’re not going to use it in the next 12. If it has sentimental value, store it away in a safe place. Otherwise, donate, recycle, or throw it away. You’ll enjoy having less clutter and more room to spread out.
Take a Deep Breath
During the winter months, we spend a lot more time indoors. So make sure the air you breathe is as healthy as possible. Avoid using cleaning products with harmful chemicals, add a little greenery to your home with plants that not only look pretty, but help purify the air. Or maybe this is the year you invest in a whole-house air purifier.
