With a new year just around the corner, there’s no better time than now to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. If you plan to move house next year or you’ve just moved into a brand new home, what better way to start the New Year than with a few resolutions?
Your home is likely a place where you spend lots of time, yet sometimes we don’t quite give it all the TLC it deserves. Get off on the right foot in 2021 with our list of home resolutions for an efficient, calm and clutter-free space.
Cut down the use of energy
As the impact we have on the planet becomes more and more clear, many people are trying to live a healthy and more sustainable lifestyle. Make it your mission to use less energy in 2021; not only will it help ensure you’re doing your bit for the environment, but it will save you money too. Going ‘green’ is a fantastic way to begin your year – and it all starts in the home.
There are plenty of small changes and adjustments you can make to cut down your energy usage, from turning down your thermostat and investing in double glazed windows to taking shorter showers and blocking out any draughts.
Improve your air quality
Prolonged exposure to polluted air can lead to a range of different health problems, from respiratory issues to heart disease and lung cancer. Without you even realising, indoor air can be full of contaminants like dust and mould spores, especially during winter when we don’t open the windows to circulate fresh air.
Improve air quality in your home next year by investing in a high-quality HVAC system. To ensure the air is pure and clean, make sure you change the filters regularly and keep it clean. Ventilating your bathrooms and kitchen will also help to get rid of cooking fumes, surplus humidity and smoke.
Keep up with maintenance
We’re all guilty of neglecting chores around the home. We’re not talking about doing the laundry or cleaning the oven, we’re talking about that fence that’s been broken for a while or your cupboard that’s falling off its hinges.
Make it your mission to keep on top of maintenance around your home this year. As soon as you notice a problem, don’t put it to the back of your mind – tackle it at the earliest convenience. That way, you won’t be left with a long and daunting to-do list.
