New Year, New Home: Setting Home Improvement Resolutions for 2024
Posted on 19th December 2023 at 09:51
As we embrace the fresh start of the new year, it’s the perfect time to set resolutions for transforming your home. Whether you’re looking to completely transform your home or just get some minor repairs done. Now is the perfect time to start planning!
When beginning a home improvement project, it can be hard to know where to start. It’s important to set achievable goals. Begin by visualising what you hope to achieve regarding your home this year. Make a checklist of home maintenance tasks, including any repairs and improvements you hope to complete. Ensure you address minor repairs promptly. This will prevent them from escalating into bigger issues if left unfixed for a long time. From fixing leaks to repainting rooms, proactive maintenance contributes to your living spaces’ longevity and aesthetic appeal.
A budget- friendly home transformation
Declutter and organise
Start the new year right by having a big sort out of all your unwanted items. Research shows that having a neat, well organised home plays an important role in your mental health and wellbeing. You know what they say: Tidy house, tidy mind. Getting your surroundings neat and organised helps to set a positive tone for the rest of the year. Delve into the process by sorting out your belongings. Identify items that you no longer use or need. This task allows you to make mindful decisions about what items you want to keep, discard, or donate.
Spruce up your interior
This resolution goes beyond the superficial; it’s about creating an environment that aligns with your individual personality. As you experiment with colours, textures, and patterns, experience the effect that these changes will have on the overall atmosphere of your home. Help to turn your space into a dynamic expression of yourself for the year ahead.
Revive your home through an interior spruce up. The power of a fresh coat of paint can’t be understated. Try transforming your space through picking out a new colour palette that reflects your unique style and taste for this new year.
Save money on new furniture and harness the power of rearranging your existing pieces. Experiment with different furniture arrangements to discover a cost-effective way to give your room a whole new look and feel. Try to think of new layouts that maximise your existing space and enhance the overall flow of each room. A small change such as the placement of your sofa can breathe fresh energy into the whole space.
Upgrade your homes security
Unfortunately, crime rates tend to increase during the winter season due to the shorter days and darker evenings. So, the new year is a great time to address any concerns regarding your homes security. Whether this be investing in a security system or ensuring things such as your windows and doors are in good working condition. If your current set up is not secure, you may need to look into investing in new ones. If you want to take the extra step, the addition of a front porch also adds an extra layer of security to your property. This is because it adds another doorway to get through, putting potential intruders off attempting to enter your property.
Home Renovation resolutions
Do you spend your days looking at that half-completed project you never got round to finishing? Or even thinking about that one project you always wanted to start but never did?
In 2024, make it one of your new years resolutions to complete one or two home improvement projects this coming year. Maybe you have a sum of money saved up to complete that bigger project you’ve always wanted to do. Whether it’s a new conservatory roof to improve your homes heating and energy efficiency. Or maybe you’ve always dreamt of an airy sunroom to give your home that extra bit of space. Whatever your home renovation dreams are, get planning them this new year!
Seek professional guidance
Maybe you have a bigger renovation in mind to upgrade your home in the new year. Whether this be a conservatory or extension, its always best to discuss your plans and aspirations with a professional. Renovations like these can be complex, and partnering with the right professionals is so important. This way, you’re guaranteed a high-quality service completed within a suitable timeframe. Ensure you do your research when selecting a professional home improvement company, making sure they’re well trusted and respected.
