The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and it’s never too early to start thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions for 2017. No, we’re not talking about pledging to start eating healthier or exercising more, we’re talking about making a resolution to get your home back in shape, and make it a better version of itself! Check out these five resolutions for ideas on how to make 2017 your home’s best year yet.
- I will finally renovate my kitchen.
Time flies when you’re having fun, and before you know it, that kitchen that was in the home you purchased 5 years ago that was already a little out of date is now really out of date. Make this year the year that you finally treat yourself to updated cabinets, counter tops, and maybe even a few new appliances.
- 2017 is the year I’m going to build a pool.
Make your house the cookout hot spot this summer; a swimming pool makes all the difference when entertaining in the back yard. It’s a built-in party! Just add water (and a couple of burgers and dogs).
- I will not neglect my paint projects.
It’s easy to put off painting projects until next weekend, then maybe next weekend, and then the weekend after that. But just get out there and do it! You’ll be pleased by how something so small can make such a huge difference in your home’s appearance. Look up some of the latest trends online or even contact our design team to get a finger on the pulse of what colors and styles are in right now.
- I will get rid of clutter.
This is probably a resolution you already had in mind for yourself, but starting with organizing your home is a great way to keep the rest of your life organized as well. There are plenty of websites where you can sell items that are still in good condition, or if you’re in the giving spirit, your local shelter would be happy to receive your donations.
- I will make my home safer for my family.
If you do not already have an alarm system, consider getting one in 2017. They are becoming more and more affordable these days, and even include systems with cameras that you can monitor from an app on your phone when you’re away. Make an investment that will protect the rest of your investments.
