During December, you were all probably thinking about the resolutions you have for this year. And if you weren’t, you probably are now. When it comes to getting New Year’s resolutions, we can analyse all areas of our lives too often land right back at square one: our health. No matter how hard we try, we always want to work on a diet. But, there might not be any need.
If you’re thinking about losing weight this year, scrap it and put your time and efforts into something a lot more fun, interesting and rewarding - your home. Updating your home can be one of the most exciting projects you’ll ever take on. Not only is it an interesting process to be apart of, but the rewards are pretty great too.
So, if you think setting New Year’s resolutions for your home sounds like something you’d love to go, why not take some of these ideas as inspiration.
Make It More Efficient
When you first design a room, it can have a function or a purpose. Then, over the years, it’s meaning slips. You get comfortable and rooms blend, purposes blend and everything gets disorganised. If that sounds like your home right now, add the idea of making it more efficient to the top of you list. If you want to, you can get the most out of your home in simple and easy to follow way - just check this post out for ideas.
Have A Cleaning System
You might love to clean and get to it every day, or, you might loathe the process and let things slip a little, either way, you might benefit from having a proper system in place. When it comes to keeping a clean and tidy home, you tend to get in a bit of a routine. But, when special occasions crop up, you go on holiday or you get ill, that can all go out of the window. So, a cleaning rota (that you write up weekly or monthly) might help.
Create A Cosy Space
It can also help to work on creating a little space of your own in the home. You might have a bedroom that you love and even a little space that serves you well, but unless you live alone, they won’t be reserved for just you and you alone. Instead, you can get through stressful times and fight off the depressing cold by creating a cosy sanctuary that just for you. You might choose a library or reading room, games room or office, either way, make it a space you enjoy.
Upgrade The Details
Sometimes, you can really transform a space by working on improving some of the finer details. You might think that a certain room looks boring or needs updating, but you don’t have to go all out to make a difference. Instead, you can upgrade some of the details and achieve a similar effect. Head to a store like Tap Warehouse and change your sink fittings, change the handles on your kitchen cupboards or even replace your interior doors to change the look of a space.
You might want to share your space with friends and family a bit more. If that sounds like the resolution for you, then you’re going to want to up your entertaining game. You could even add a new bar area to your favourite entertaining space and work on new cocktail recipes to try and wow your guests and be the hostess with the mostess.
One of the best resolutions you can set for yourself is to declutter. Not only will you be able to live a calmer life without any mess, but you might also find that it’s a good de-stressing move too. With less mess around the place, you can enjoy your space more and maybe even make a little bit of extra money by selling things you no longer need.
You could also think about the improvements you can make to your garden. If it’s been left untouched for years, or you never really got around to doing anything with it, you might want to take a look at some garden design ideas and make it your missions for the next 12 months to upgrade the way it looks and how you use it.
And finally, if you do find that you struggle with mess, clutter and finding space, you might want to take a look at your options when it comes to smart storage. You can find lots of different ways of organising your home by choosing storage options that not only keep everything in order but look incredible too.
