5 New Year's Resolutions for Your Home

Faith McGregor is here to share some resolutions for your home! She has the coveted Christmas day guest spot. Check out some of her great ideas.

Every New Year gives us an opportunity to think about our lives and make assessments of all the things that
happened in the year we left behind. Additionally, this is the time to make new plans and focus on what
we can improve in the future. Therefore, we are absolutely sure that you’ve already created your own
list of New Year’s resolutions. However, we have one more thing you might want to add to
that list – I’ll improve my home and bring a breath of fresh air into it. Sounds good? Let’s take a look
at some of the ideas that we’ve prepared for you.

Go for bolder colours

Once the New Year arrives, it’ll be time for you to say goodbye to all those boring and plain colours of the
previous year, and decorate your home with some bolder nuances. So, instead of sticking to monochromatic
colour schemes and muted shades, go crazy and try out some of the more vivid colours which are included
in the new Pantone’s Fashion Colour Trend Report. Although the focus here is on fashion, these same colours
can be applied to interior design as well. Of course, you don’t have to paint your whole bedroom in
Lime Punch; instead, you can go for an accent wall in this shade which will break the monotony and
make your bedroom look much livelier. Additionally, you can achieve the same effect by adding accessories
to your home design including interestingly-patterned vases and pillows in crazy shades.

Create a corner just for you

Another great decision would be creating your own corner in the house. Just imagine having a nice
reading nook near one of the windows. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? Of course it does! You just need to
place a cosy sofa next to your window and decorate it with soft accent pillows. Additionally, you can go
green and add some houseplants as well. Not only will they make your corner truly special, but they
will also purify the air, enriching it with oxygen. Finally, remove all electronic devices from this corner
and thus turn it into a true oasis of peace.

Keep your house clean

A decision to make a good plan which will help you keep your home clean is probably one of the most
popular New Year’s resolutions. Therefore, we’ve decided to give you some useful advice on this topic.
First of all, determine what your daily duties are. So, instead of allowing your dishes to pile up, put them
in the dishwasher after every meal. Furthermore, make sure that every time when you take off a piece of
clothing, you either put it in a closet or in a hamper instead of just leaving it on the floor. Once you master
these daily tasks, determine your weekly cleaning schedule and try to stick to it. Of course, if you have
a family, you should divide the job among yourselves, which will allow you to finish everything much faster.

Make your home staycation friendly

Instead of paying for all these expensive vacation resorts, make your home staycation friendly and
spend some amazing time with your friends and family. For example, you can install
one of the amazing fibreglass swimming pools and make your house the talk of the town.
They are particularly popular since fibreglass can resist algae growth, which makes maintenance
much easier. On top of that, their construction can be finished rather quickly and there is no danger
of corrosion. Furthermore, you can hang a comfortable hammock next to it and enjoy a poolside
afternoon snooze. Finally, think about introducing an outdoor kitchen where you and your family
can have barbecue and throw crazy house parties.

No space should be wasted

Finally, think of the best way to make a good use of all the rooms in your house, including your attic and
basement. For example, your husband may want to have his own man cave where he can hang out with
his buddies and play pool. So, instead of depriving him of this enjoyment, help him renovate your basement
and decorate it according to his own liking. Or, if your daughter’s room is not big enough for popular pyjama
parties with her friends, make some space on the attic for such purposes. We guarantee that she will
absolutely love you for that.
As you can see, there are so many things that you can do to improve your living space and make it
absolutely inviting and enjoyable. We’ve mentioned some of the ideas, but you should feel free to
experiment further and come up with some more. Good luck!
