Whether you’ve made it a resolution or not, getting your home renewed is always a good idea. It can be as simple as hanging a piece of art or as investing as remodeling the kitchen. If you still haven’t decided how to update your house, here are some home project ideas to inspire you.
“And now let us welcome the New Year, full of things that never were.” - Rainer Maria Rilke
Paint the Ceiling
Start the year by innovating your bedroom with a painting service. But not any painting service:
A ceiling painting service!
Don’t you feel renewed when you buy something new and pretty for yourself? Getting a new coat of paint in your home brings up that same feeling.
Bonus: In 2018, accents walls were really in style, so you could also paint one. But 2019 simply asks for a painted ceiling!
Garage Organization System
Installing a garage organization system can tremendously help you with your New Year’s goal of keeping things neat and organized. Starting by the garage can really help you feel better about checking that goal off your list.
The garage is that one place where we simply throw things that are not being used, or things that broke and we don’t want to throw out just yet, it’s the place where we put away old children toys, and stuff boxes with old clothes that we swear we’ll take to donation, but never do.
Well, stop procrastinating! Tackle on that garage and:
- Get rid of all broken items
- See if your friends or neighbors need anything that is still in good shape, but you don’t use anymore
- Donate clothes and toys that are piling up - if you like to keep things for the memories, take photos before passing those objects for the next kid to enjoy. That way you will always have a piece of history with you
- Install shelves that are big enough to store your tools, but small enough so that you car can still enter the garage with ease
Freshen Up the Living Room
If you like playing host(ess) and always have someone around, it’s important to have a comfy living room to welcome those guests. So thinking on some projects for that room will be a good idea, from adding plants to a simple painting service or a complete remodel. Maybe hiring an interior designer can help you find just what you need to create a gorgeous living room.
It’s easy for carpets to build up mold over time, even though you can’t always spot it. They may even release toxic fumes if not properly cared for.
More than that,
If they have any rips, tears, stains, or are exalating odors, it’s time for a change!
That’s why you need a regular carpet cleaning service and, after a couple of years, a complete replacement.
Unlike carpets, flooring has no issues with odors, but you’ll have cracks and chips as time goes by. Depending on the material you’re dealing with, you may have structural issues or tenting. Those are clear signs you should get the flooring replaced!
Replace Cracked Tiles
Instead of trying to cover the crack, replace the broken or cracked tiles of your home. Not only will it look better, you will also be avoiding negative energies around you.
According to feng shui beliefs, broken objects absorb negative energies when they break and you take that in every time you look or simply pass by those objects. So, why not get the year started by cleaning your home energy too, right?
