New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home Part 5
Our final post on New Year’s Resolutions for your home. Hopefully we have helped you reach obtainable goals for 2015. Every year when January rolls around we vow to lose weight, save money or spend more time with family and friends. But what goals do we set for our home? Let us guide you through 5 ideas for your home this New Year.
- Get your place ready for entertaining
Each year most of us vow to spend more time with family and friends. To make you feel like inviting people in, why not give the areas you entertain in a little update?
You don’t have go for broke here and invest in a full kitchen remodel. If you can’t afford the whole remodel then install new counter-tops or cabinets and then update the rest of your kitchen with just a little rearranging.
One easy update that makes your home seem more “finished” is the addition of plants. They bring in a fresh energy and help clean the air. It is great décor on a budget.
A couple of dramatic presentations like a large flowering agapanthus or potted palm in a bright ceramic planter that complements your existing color scheme will do the trick.
Pulling out a new accent color from your existing decor can make the whole room seem fresh. Pick an underused color in the room and add more of it in the form of a vase or colorful floor runner.
Lastly, take some time to rearrange your furniture so it is oriented in conversation groups and not just facing the television. That just might up the chances for real conversation and connection in the New Year.Share
