It’s an exciting time of the year! A chance to start fresh and kick off another year on your best foot. As you’re making your list of New Year’s resolutions, don’t forget about one very important area of your life: your home! Here are some ideas for giving your home some goals for 2018.

 

Embrace the Future

 

When was the last time you updated your home’s decor? Are your walls still hanging out in the 90s? Make it a point in 2018 to give your home a “glowup” and bring things into the present. Choose a good neutral paint color pallette and alternate 2-3 shades throughout your home for a unified yet unique environment in each room. Bring your home’s power usage into the present with energy-efficient bulbs and a wifi-accessible programmable thermostat like Nest.

 

Watch Your Step

 

Your home’s floors are quite possibly the least appreciated part of your home. You use them every day and they get the most wear and tear. In 2018, make a promise to your home to have your carpets cleaned or replaced, if the wear and tear is too much. Does your home have hardwood floors? Over the years, foot traffic and activity can severely wear and discolor the stain of your hardwood floors. You may even have a few dips, dents, or even cracks. Before you jump straight to hiring a flooring specialist to replace your home’s hardwood flooring, contact us about our hardwood floor resurfacing service. Our noninvasive service can restore your home’s flooring to shining condition with a green and dust-free process that can often be completed in one day.

 

Fix Your First Impression

 

Does the outside of your home give visitors an accurate preview of the inside of your home? Don’t spoil your updating efforts inside by letting the exterior of your home leave a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. Hire a local contractor to come out and inspect your home’s exterior for any structural issues or pertinent repairs needed. If you have a green thumb, dedicate a weekend each season to updating your home’s plants and landscaping. Pressure wash your sidewalks and driveway at least once a year to prevent excessive staining and give all roads leading to your front door the sparkle they deserve.

 

Make 2018 the best year you and your home have had yet. We look forward to serving you in the 2018!
