New Year’s Resolutions: The Homeowner’s Edition

What are your goals and dreams for 2018? For many, goals include a smaller waistline, a beefier bank account, or more time to spend with family and friends. For some, 2018 is the year that they’ll make their home live up to the “dream home” ideal.

Let’s make that happen for you—here are 5 New Year’s resolutions for homeowners:

1| Slim your energy bill
Get your hands on feature-packed, energy-saving appliances during holiday sales, add that extra insulation to the attic, or finally hire someone to repair or replace drafty windows and doors.

2| Refine your style
Is your home Instagram-worthy? Would you be happy to be featured on HGTV? If not, consider hiring an interior designer. Madison is packed with talented designers who can help you fine-tune your home’s look.

3| Get organized
Clutter breeds stress. Find smart ways to organize your stuff so it’s both out-of-sight and out-of-mind while also being accessible when you need it (i.e., become best friends with the folks at the Container Store).

4| Burn calories
HouseLogic suggests turning your DIY projects into a workout routine. Did you know that you can burn 238 calories per hour installing ceramic tile? Get the rest of their calorie estimates here.

5| Be social
Is your home ready for entertaining? If not, 2018’s the year to arrange your furniture for parties, redecorate the guest room, or invest in that wine cooler you’ve been eyeing. If you’re really ambitious, knock out that annoying wall between your living spaces and add glass French doors.
