A new year can be a fresh start that motivates you to create goals and resolutions to get your home in order! But how do you even start such a big task as “getting your home in order”? Well, at ABC Blind & Drapery, we want our clients to go home to a happy and organized home, so we did some research and came up with some New Year’s resolutions for your home that you can set and follow!
Getting rid of the clutter in your house is an easy and inexpensive way to feel better about your home! We recommend going through your items in each room and get rid of anything that you don’t use, love or need and either donate it to charity or throw it out. Marie Kondo’s KonMari method recommends that if an item doesn’t bring you joy, then you need to let it go. Follow this method, and get to decluttering!
Secure Your Home
While ensuring that your home is beautiful and organized is important, it’s just as important to ensure that it is safe. Motorized window treatments rid you of the worry of your children or pets getting tangled in the cords, while also allowing you ease of operation. ABC Blind & Drapery offers a full line of motorized window coverings including draperies, roller shades, horizontal blinds, sheer horizontal shades, pleated/cellular shades, and roman shades. We also suggest getting carbon monoxide detectors and fire detectors installed in every room of your house to ensure that all rooms and floors are covered!
Lower Your Bills
In order to shrink your bills, we suggest taking a couple of measures. First, you can invest in solar screens to lower your energy consumption. You can also install solar panels on your roof to generate some of your house’s power and lower your utility bill. We also encourage you to upgrade your lighting to LED light bulbs – even the smallest changes can make a long term difference in lowering your bills (and your carbon footprint)!
Keep It Clean
We encourage you to create a daily, weekly and monthly plan in order to ensure that you keep your home clean. For example, make daily New Year’s resolutions for your home like to never leave dishes in the sink overnight or a weekly resolution to dust and wipe down your counters and cabinets. Creating this plan will help you stay on top of your cleaning and help you avoid dirt and stuff piling up in your home!
We hope that after reading our suggestions for New Year’s resolutions for your home, you’re feeling ready to set some goals and get your home in order! And if you’re ever in the market for new window treatments, we’d love if you’d browse our products at ABC Blind & Drapery.
