Do you make New Years Resolution’s every year and have a hard time accomplishing them? Well it’s officially the start to a new year AND a brand new decade and it’s time to get out there and make all the possibilities happen, especially with your home! As the holidays come to an end, January is the perfect time to put yourself to work, to start over, refresh & work on some home improvement projects to make you and your home feeling brand new again!
1. Whether you live where it snows or not, checking your roof and cleaning out your gutters is the perfect place to start! Go ahead and always check for missing shingles, clogged gutters or any other problems that may have occurred during the winter/colder months. Doing this will prevent any problems that may occur later on down the road.
2. Who says spring cleaning has to be done in the spring? Get a jump start and clean room by room. This is the best time to declutter and clean as you’re already cleaning up all your holiday decorations anyway. Start with your busiest room first, where the most foot traffic occurs. You can start by deep cleaning, scrubbing the floors, vacuuming, and rinse and repeat until your home feels brand new again! This is also the PERFECT time to purge any old items you want to get rid of or become more organized.
3. Last, take on the easiest home improvement project that’ll improve your home and make it feel bigger and brighter! Add a fresh coat of paint to your walls or even change up the color to make your home more comfortable to fit your needs. Start by cleaning the walls and checking if there are any scuff marks or holes you need to cover up to make your walls look brand new!
