7 Resolutions For Your Home In the New Year

7 Resolutions For Your Home In the New Year

R E S O L U T I O N S You might have vowed to quit smoking, lose some weight, travel new places or spend some more time with your family. But what about your home – the place where you’ll spend most of your year? Below we present to you seven resolutions for your home this year, in the perfect spirit of new beginnings. They say home is where your heart is but a lovelier, better organized, and more comfortable place to live will surely work wonders. As we count down to 2020, we will share our favorite resolutions for your home. 1. Declutter your homeWhen your house is untidy and in chaos, it makes you feel overwhelmed, stressed, and frustrated. Your environment affects how you feel, therefore, tidying up and organizing your house may change the way you experience life. It’s easy to let this task be left undone, but if you’re intentional and schedule this as an appointment (even 20 minutes per day), you will feel more organized soon. Creating extra space for storage is another way to keep your home organized. With added space, you can store your possessions easily without your room looking untidy. So this year, how about making use of your imagination at creating a little more space in the most unimaginable places? If you still feel overwhelmed, we recommend you contact Angie King Oswalt with House Ready By Maplewood Designs, LLC and she will organize, declutter, take stuff to donate, etc for you! 2. Make Your House Safe and Sound Your home may look wonderful and it’s properly organized also. How about putting some efforts into making it safe as well?...
