Resolutions for Your Home in the New Year
Work out more often, eat healthier, lose weight — for decades, these have been some of the most popular New Year's resolutions. But with January on the horizon, we think it’s time to turn your inward focus on resolutions outward towards your home.
Your home plays a major role in your happiness, stress level, and even sleep quality. You spend a lot of time in your home throughout the year, especially around the holidays. We all know that home is where the heart is, so make your home a sanctuary that’s always ready for loved ones.
New Year’s Resolution for Your Home
1. Clear the Clutter
Does it ever feel like no matter how much you dust and organize, your home never truly feels clean? One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to improve the look of your home is to clean out your junk drawer, empty storage bins, and clear shelves.
To avoid feeling overwhelmed, resolve to clear out just one room per month. As you go through each room, consider donating items that are still in good condition.
2. Set the Stage for Entertaining
Spending time with friends and family is one of the best things you can do for your mental health. But if you feel like your home isn’t ready for company, you may be hesitant to invite people over.
Fortunately, small changes can make a big impact. Once your living room is clutter-free, breathe life into your space by incorporating plants, making these subtle but modern updates, and resolving to maintain your clean throughout the week.
3. Create a Cleaning Routine
When it comes to cleaning, do you have an “I’ll get to it tomorrow” mindset? If so, you’re not alone. Cleaning is one of the most common household chores homeowners admit to putting off, not because they’re lazy but because there are other things they’d rather be doing.
If you find yourself avoiding your sponge and vacuum at all costs, it may be time to call in the experts! With pre-scheduled, regular cleanings from Merry Maids, you’ll never again have to worry about spending a beautiful Saturday indoors scrubbing pots and pans.
