New Year’s Resolutions and Your Home

Every time January rolls around, thousands of people create New Year’s Resolutions for themselves. Unfortunately, many resolutions also fail after a month or two. We’re here to help! Here’s a list of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions and how we can help you achieve them.

2018 resolutions

Resolution #1 – Save Money

When people talk about saving money, they think about putting money into a savings fund. But you should also think about saving money in other ways, like with your energy bills. Keeping the thermostat low will help save on energy costs, and while it helps, there are other things you can do to save money and keep your home warm. Spend some money up front to save in the long-run!

If you have an old home, think about replacing your windows with new ones which are more energy-efficient, or upgrading your insulation which will keep warm air in and cold air out. Having a fireplace in your home can also help save money on electricity and gas. If you don’t have a fireplace, we’ll build one for you!

Resolution #2 – Eat Healthier

Do you ever find that you’re eating out more or getting take-out simply because you don’t want to cook in your kitchen? Think about building your dream kitchen, and you’ll be more likely to want to cook at home! Your family will be more than happy to eat your delicious, healthy meals in your brand new beautiful kitchen.

Think about what you currently like and dislike about your kitchen, and what needs to be improved in order for you to want to spend more time there. New countertops? Giving your cabinets a facelift (try the DIY version)? New flooring? There are a lot of things that can be done to improve the space, and make the room more functional for your needs.

Resolution #3 – Exercise More

Why do most people fail to exercise more? Time. They don’t have time to go to the gym. What if the gym was in your house? All you’d need is a clean, light, well-ventilated space. If you have an extra room in your home, we can outfit it with hardwood floors, better ventilation and technology to help you rock your workout. If you need an extra room, talk to us about building a small addition on your home.

When you have a home gym, there will be no reason not to get in there and work out. You’ll set a great example for your whole family!

Resolution #4 – Get Organized

The biggest reason for why people have clutter around their home is a lack of storage. This can be easily fixed! Have custom shelving added to your home that is not only functional, but beautiful. We can create a conversation piece in your home AND help you get yourself organized.

The more shelving space you have, the more likely you’ll be to keep everything in its place, and keep clutter from taking over your home!

Resolution #5 – Spend More Time with Friends and Family

Do you ever wonder if your home could be better suited for entertaining people? Especially in older homes, like we see in Newburyport, rooms can be small and closed off, and it can be difficult to have a group of people over. Let’s talk about how we can improve that for you! It could be discussing opening up the first floor of your home to create a better flow for entertaining. Or it may be looking at an extra room you have, and turning it into an entertainment space, complete with extra outlets, technology and up-t0-date ventilation.

Don’t let your home get in the way of spending more time with your family and friends! Instead, turn your home into a place where everyone wants to go.
