02 Jan New Year’s resolutions for your home
Happy New Year from all of us at Econoloft! We hope that your celebrations went with a bang, whatever you were doing. Now that it’s January, it’s finally time to blow away the cobwebs and start thinking about the changes you’re going to make this year. Many people make New Year’s resolutions – whether you’ve committed yourself to getting fit and healthy or to giving up alcohol, you can bet your bottom dollar that a lot of people will have caved in before the month is over. So this year, instead of focusing on self-improvement, why not think about home improvement? Let’s take a look at some of the best New Year’s resolutions for the home.
In 2014 I will…
Re-paint one of the rooms in my home
A fresh lick of paint signifies a fresh start and new beginnings. According to elledecor.com, the experts at Pantone have chosen Radiant Orchid as the colour of 2014. This is a great shade for adding warmth and a touch of luxury to your bedroom. What’s more, it’s an inexpensive way to solve that tired looking bedroom dilemma once and for all.
Have a big clear out
e’ve all vowed to throw away the piles of clutter that gather on every available floor surface. But how many of you have actually stayed true to your word? An easy way to feel good about yourself this year is to have a good clear out, according to hgtv.com. Make the task seem simpler by tackling one room at a time and your home will look bigger in no time. You know what they say, an empty space, a clear mind.
Learn DIY and get fit at the same time
We mentioned above that a popular New Year’s resolution is to get fit. Well this year, you can get fit simply by doing DIY. We have to admit, we hadn’t really thought about this before, but it actually makes perfect sense – no wonder it’s from houselogic.com. Building a new fence or chopping up some firewood will burn up to 340 calories per hour. Even a spot of painting will rack up 136 impressive calories – go on, you’ve earned that leftover mince pie.
Increase the level of home safety
The clever people at domainehome.com have come up with a great post-holiday resolution – install a carbon monoxide detector. We hate to start the year off on a negative thought, but this colourless, odourless gas can be life threatening – don’t risk any harm coming to your family members by installing and regularly checking your carbon monoxide detector.
Invest in more space
Whether your kids are growing up, you’ve recently given birth, or you’ve simply outgrown your home, a loft conversion can solve your need for more space. It’s the home improvement that will give you the best return on your investment, and may even mean the difference between staying in your beloved family home and relocating.
