New Year Home Resolutions

Now’s the time to think about what you can do at home to enhance your life and make your house a home, after all a new year means new possibilities and a fresh start! Here’s what the experts at Houzz have to say when it comes to setting your home resolutions

Appreciate what you already have:

Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, take a minute to acknowledge what you already have around your home, you’ll be surprised as to how much you have in abundance in your house

Identify what you like:

It’s so easy to settle for a piece of furniture or décor item that is the cheaper/slightly different version of what you originally fell in love with, more often than not resulting in buyer’s remorse. Take the time to really identify what it is you like and love in your home, sometimes this means not buying something until you can track down/save for something better but it will be worth it in the long run!

Remove or change the things you don’t like:

Now’s the time to take stock of what you have in your home that is just taking up space and quite frankly the things that you just don’t like and declutter! If you’ve been living with a wall colour that you don’t like, change it.

Don’t let renting stop you from making your home a place you love:

When renting you tend to hold back and not fully make it your home but this is not the way to live and love your space. There are lots of things you can do to personalize a rental without doing major changes, like hanging some pictures, put up removable wall paper or just add some pot plants, it’s time to get creative!
