New Year’s Home Improvement Resolutions, Part I
The New Year is almost here, and that means it’s time to make your home improvement resolutions for 2023! We’ve got a lot of resolutions to suggest, so we’ve broken this into two parts… one for before the new year, and one for after. You don’t have to choose to do all of these, or even any of them… the important part is this: that you’re improving your home and your life in general!
Ready to start improving? Let’s get into it!
This Year, I’ll…
The New Year is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. That’s why it’s such a great time to make some promises to yourself when it comes to home improvement! Say it with us – “In 2023, I’ll”
Maintain My Property Better
A key part of enjoying the new year is being thankful for what you have. You work hard to keep a roof over your head, and you can honor that hard work by making a commitment to maintain your home and property better. Fix that creaking door, re-caulk that tub, put a fresh coat of paint on that wall. It’s time to knock out all of those little projects on the backburner that keep your home in great shape.
We’d also suggest have your home and appliances (HVAC system, etc) inspected and serviced by professionals.
Not only will a promise to maintain your home make you more appreciative of what you have, but it will save you time and money in the long run.
Clean More Often
It’s easy during the cold, dark months of winter to relax your cleaning regimen a little bit. However, if you’re like most of us, a little bit turned into a lot around the Holidays… and you’re looking at a mess!
Promise yourself that this year, you’ll clean your home more often. Spending 10, 15 minutes a day this winter keeping the house nice and tidy is far better than spending hours and hours in spring cleaning it back up.
Organize My Stuff
Study after study proves that a well-organized home is a happier home. Makes sense right? When you’ve got your guest room serving as a storage room, your attic serving as a dumping zone, and boxes of random stuff everywhere… it’s not just an eyesore – it’s making you unhappy.
Commit to organizing your home this year. Buy organizational furniture (Shelves, coat/shoe racks, etc) and come up with a system that makes sense for you. You could even consider hiring a contractor to install some built-ins!
Turns out the old cliche “a place for everything and everything in its place” is actually pretty sound advice.
Things were shaky economically in 2022, and the outlook for 2023 is more of the same. It’s a great time to save some money, and one of the ways you can do that when it comes to home improvement is by investing in energy-efficient windows and doors. That draft in your home when it’s cold out is more than just uncomfortable – it’s expensive!
Energy efficient windows and doors retain more heat inside and provide better insulation. That means your home will stay warmer naturally, which translates to a big drop on that Dominion Energy bill.
If spending less money and being more comfortable sounds good, we can help. Learn how on our Windows and Doors pages!
Upgrade My Home
It’s a great time to upgrade your home. We wrote about this very thing in our last blog – your dream home can be the home you’re living in now! With recent interest rate hikes and real estate uncertainty, buying or building that dream home just got a whole lot less affordable.
Don’t like how your siding looks? Let’s team up to replace it!
Always wanted a sunroom? Let’s build it!
Want to build a pergola in the back yard for when spring rolls back around? We can help!
Promise yourself that this year, you’ll knock out that home improvement project you’ve been dreaming about for years!
