New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

We’re in a brand-new year, which means you’re probably starting to think about some of the things you want to accomplish in your life and the goals you want to set in the coming 12 months. While you’re thinking about it, now’s a good time to start planning for some home improvement projects you might have been putting off for a while. Why not make it one of your resolutions to get a long-postponed job complete?

Here are a few ideas to help you get started with setting goals for your home renovations in Wesley Chapel, FL for the coming year:

  • Write out your goals: Writing down your goals has a couple benefits. First, it helps you think through them more clearly. You might have some vague ideas as to what you’d like to accomplish in your home, but writing them down forces you to think more concretely. Second, writing out a set of goals is very much like creating an action plan. Once you put pen to paper and look at the goals you’ve written down, it’s like taking a first tangible step toward actually achieving those goals, and will propel you to take action.
  • Start planning well in advance: If you want to take on a major remodeling project like a kitchen or bathroom, this isn’t something you can just launch into as soon as you’ve decided you’re going to do it. You’re going to need to start planning well in advance. Spend some time thinking about the features you want included in your remodeled space and your specific goals for how those spaces will look and function. Do plenty of research on potential contractors, and get them booked with plenty of time to spare before you hope to start your job.
  • Plan for better storage: Not every home renovation or upgrade needs to be something significant. There’s something to be said for small upgrades around your home that make life easier, and improving your storage spaces is one of those small but highly effective and beneficial jobs. You will be amazed at how much of a difference it can make to have smart, well-designed storage solutions that take advantage of your closets, shelving and cabinetry.
  • Take care of the nuts and bolts: Infrastructural upgrades to your home aren’t the “sexiest” home renovation jobs, but they’re highly important parts of home maintenance and will help you preserve your home’s quality, appeal and value. Tuckpointing and waterproofing are both extremely important for masonry. Taking care of your roof or your HVAC systems should also be at the top of your list. Any infrastructural upgrades you make to your home might have a high initial expense, but the return on investment is significant.
  • Do something fun: Your resolution might simply be to take on a job because it’s something you want, rather than something you need. It could be as simple as a new color of paint in your bedroom, or it might be decking out your basement and making it into a bar or home theater.
