2020 is almost upon us, and while many spend January thinking about personal improvement, don’t forget your home when making your new year’s resolutions. Here are four easy resolutions that will help keep your home in the best shape in 2020:
Declutter your space
There’s a good reason organization is a top resolution each year — a decluttered and organized home has been shown to:
- Reduce anxiety
- Improve relationships
- Help people enjoy their lives
The best thing about decluttering is that it can be done room by room, storage area by storage area, so you can keep it as an ongoing project with lasting results. Decluttering also lets you take advantage of areas of your home, such as garages and basements, that can often become overrun with things that you don’t need.
Maintain your home
People get busy and frequently neglect simple maintenance tasks in your home. Staying up to date on maintenance extends the life of appliances and fixtures, improves performance, and can save you money in the long run. Pay special attention to:
- Heating and air conditioning
- Sprinkler systems
Get efficient in 2020
Make the new year one filled with comfort and savings by becoming more efficient. Address drafty doors and windows, sealing or replacing where necessary. Replace incandescent bulbs with high-efficiency LEDs to lower your electricity usage. Bigger projects that pay off include adding insulation and buying Energy Star appliances and electronics.
Resolve to make your house your dream home
Resolutions aren’t only about dieting and doing lots of hard work around the home. After you declutter closets, maintain your air conditioning system, and make your house more efficient, make your dream remodel a reality in 2020. Start the new year off with a plan. Identify areas in your home that need renovation, or those that you just want to change, and begin a budget and renovation plan.
