New Years Resolutions For The Home

Hello to the new year! The start of a new year is the perfect time to assess all aspects of your life and, if you are so inclined, write a list of resolutions for the coming year. So, it’s time to focus on what you want to change or improve in your life, and this starts with your home! Your list might include large renovation works as well as smaller jobs, but whatever you are dreaming of, you need to do it ASAP!  The start of a new year is the best time to assess and jump into new projects, so get ready to make the best of this new year for your home!

1. Sort out your house! 

Before you start modifying your home, you have to sort out everything that is in it. You won’t be able to start a new year with a fresh mindset if you’re stuck with cumbersome remains of the past. So, take a few days at the very beginning of the year to choose what you want to keep in your life and what is useless and/or has a negative influence on your life. This first step is the must-do!  

2. Fulfill your dream

Everyone has dreams for their lives and lifestyles. These often include features that you’ve always dreamt of for your home, such as a pool or an alfresco kitchen. But often we self-limit ourselves because of the fuss and money these renovations require. However, now is the time to overcome these issues by finding affordable options to fulfill your dream! So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and build your dream pizza oven! 

3. Build that extra room / extension

No matter the size of your house, chances are you’ve been confronted with the common issue of a lack of space. There never seems to be enough rooms to welcome your relatives, or enough space to practice the drums or to sculpt clay, the list goes on. So, why don’t you take advantage of 2017 to finally build the much needed extra space? This space could be achieved by renovating your basement (insert link) or by building a granny flat in your backyard. Plenty of options are available!

4. Design a bathroom that reflects your personality and lifestyle 

Bathrooms can be expensive to renovate, especially if you’re looking to completely rearrange your existing bathroom layout. Bathroom renovations of this nature usually involve extensive works that are disruptive and break through your bathroom floor. This is where your renovations can get costly! However, you can still achieve your dream bathroom without needing to break the floor or the bank. Saniflo provides innovative plumbing products that make this possible. You can even change the location of your bathroom Now you have no excuse not to renovate your wet area in order to create a beautiful space. Consider all of the design elements that you would like and make sure you make this space extra special! Have you always wanted a rain shower? Love Scandinavian design? A standalone bathtub? Nothing is too much for your 2017 self!

5. Refresh your walls

New year, new colours. Painting your walls is an easy and affordable way to mix up the style of your home. It’s advisable to try to pick a style that will last, but you can still be daring! Dark purple or sand tones are timeless and they instantly add a luxury touch to the room.  When re-painting, have fun in smaller spaces, such as ensuites and even cupboards! Use patterns, funky colours or fancy wallpapers… Why not consider changing one of your small rooms into a glittery haven with the Messina Damask Gold wallpaper offered by Wall Candy Wallpaper? The sky is the limit!
