The new year is a time for many people to begin anew, start new projects, make personal amends, and set goals. While often these resolutions focus on us — our bodies, our family and friends, our careers — it can be equally important to make resolutions for your home and living spaces.
Studies have shown that the more satisfied and safe you feel with your home, the happier you are in general. It settles the mind to get in that Feng Shui mode as well as to have peace of mind when it comes to safety. So, we’re here to give you some tips on not just making your home a more enjoyable place, but also more efficient and innovative.
Some of the best ways of organizing your home (and keeping it that way) are utilizing storage space and containers (see our selection here), keeping a chart, which can also involve your kids with chores like cleaning and decluttering, and coming up with a system of organization for things like mail, bills, important paperwork, coupons, and more. Doing these things keeps extra “stuff” out of your daily view, and in turn helps you feel confident that you can find what you need when the time comes.
Going green may seem similar to saving energy, and it is, but it goes a little further than that. It has to do with climate conservation, sustainability, eco-friendly building, and even making your home more healthy for you and your family.
Have a loose wall plate? A nick in the wall? Leaky faucet? These are all pretty easy fixes but we tend to put them off until we REALLY need to get them repaired. Take time in the beginning of the year to tackle your list of simple To-Do’s and you’ll feel much better about your home!
This one is common sense, but many people haven’t taken the time to ensure their home’s safety. Make the time! Many of these tasks are quick and easy to do and cost-friendly as well.
