Believe it or not, 2022 is just about here which means it’s time to start talking resolutions for the New Year! Read on to find out how you can put a twist on common resolutions in order to get the most out of your home for the upcoming year!
Get in Shape
Fitness always seems to be one of the most popular resolutions every year which is why gyms tend to see an uptick in membership during the first few months of the year. Instead, think about setting some space aside and invest in your own home gym equipment. This way you can avoid those crowds and will save money on monthly fees in the long run.
If you want to make a point to invite your friends and family over more this year, then updating your kitchen and living room are great places to start since these are your primary gathering spaces. Additionally, adding a guest room will allow you to welcome out of towners that you might not have had room for in the past. Even if you can’t renovate for whatever reason, consider rearranging your furniture so that it’s facing away from the television and other distractions to create a more conversation friendly environment.
Energy and heating bills hit an all-time high this past year with everyone spending more time at home. Luckily, there are a variety of ways to cut back on your energy consumption so that you can have a little more money in your pocket this time next year! First, one of the most overlooked aspects to any home renovation is not positioning windows properly toward the sun during the day. This is crucial to allowing more natural light in allowing you to turn down the lights and heating. Also, switching to energy efficient appliances and programmable thermostats is a game changer because you can set the times when you won’t be home. Lastly, investing in solar panels is becoming more common and can save you thousands.
