New Year’s resolutions for your home
In between mailing Christmas cards, and singing Auld Lang Syne – or maybe after all that – it’s a great time to think about ways to improve your home next year and start making concrete plans. It’s time for New Year’s resolutions for your home!
There are plenty of reasons why you might want to invest in improving your home in 2017, whether you’re planning to sell or just want a more efficient home. Regardless of the “why,” the “when” is now. Here are 5 ideas for changes to make in your home in the new year.
- Get out a notebook. This is the perfect time to make a list of all those little projects and problems that you notice through the year but never have time to plan for. Are you tired of cleaning clogged gutters? Write it down, and then write “Gutter Helmet.” Have you had enough of scraping and painting window frames? Write it down, along with a note to check into new vinyl replacement windows. Is your home’s exterior faded and dull? Write that down too – maybe new siding is in your future.
