With 2017 coming to a close, it’s time to start considering some New Year’s Resolutions. While most people tend to focus their resolutions on themselves, we think this might be the year to show your apartment a little love!
Clear out the clutter
What better way to kick off the New Year than by reducing the mountains of clutter that tend to accumulate during the holidays? Go room-by-room so you don’t feel overwhelmed taking everything on at once, and sort through what has built up throughout the year.
Go green for ‘18
Going green doesn’t necessarily have to mean installing solar panels or driving an electric vehicle. Make a resolution to be more energy efficient this year. Be conscious of turning lights off when you leave rooms, turn off power strips, use LED bulbs, and set goals to use less heating and air conditioning when you are not around your home. It’ll be a habit before you know it! Energy Star also offers some great tips for energy conservation.
Schedules don’t have to all be about chores, they can be used in a variety of ways. Yes, they can help you by setting up a more consistent system for cleaning and meal planning, but you could also use them to plan regular events to host friends and family. A monthly dinner with your favorite people can make your house truly feel like a home.
Change up your space
One way to improve your living experience for the New Year is to re-imagine the way you use your space. Flip furniture from room to room, rearrange wall artwork and bring some new accessories to your apartment. Try out Feng Shui! This is a simple way to bring a breath of fresh air to any home.
Give yourself peace of mind
One of the best resolutions to make for 2018 is obtaining Renters Insurance for your apartment home if you haven’t already done so. Maybe this has been on your bucket list for a while and you just haven’t made the time. Insuring your apartment is quick, easy, affordable, and can ensure that you will rest easy in the New Year.
No matter what your resolution is this year, be sure to keep your home in mind. Improving your experience around the house is a great way to get the ball rolling in a positive direction for 2018.
