New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

It’s a new year, which means it’s time to think about how we can make this year better than the last! For homeowners, one easy way to do this is to come up with New Year’s resolutions for making your home even better. Here are some resolutions we came up with for home improvement in 2014:
  1. Finally convert to home LED lighting. This is one of the most important things you can do to make your home better and lower your energy bills in 2014. If you’re still using incandescent bulbs, make 2014 the year you switch over to more energy efficient light bulbs. Your home — and your wallet — will thank you for it.
  2. Cut down the clutter. Especially after the holidays, homes get cluttered. Take a weekend and go through the clutter in your home. When you find things you don’t want or need, donate them or throw them out. For everything else, find a home for it.
  3. Get your home ready for entertaining. This is the year you could have more friends and family over to your home. Having a home you’re proud of can be just what you need to invite people over more often. Spruce up your place with some nice accent pillows, plants and LED accent lighting to really give off a good vibe.
  4. Make the outdoors safer. Update your outdoor lighting for enhanced safety and longevity. Security lights and flood lights are important for increasing your home’s value and for making your home more liveable from day to day. While you’re at it, clean up around your walkways to ensure there’s nothing to trip over.
  5. Budget for improvements. If you’re like most homeowners, you probably always have a list of things you’d like to do to make your home better. Make a plan to save money each month for home improvement projects. Having the money available when you decide on a project will make accomplishing it that much easier.

  1. I do agree with your thoughts. I suppose it must be every person's new year resolution to use energy saving light fixtures in home like induction light or LED lights. As these kind of light fixtures are not only money saving, but also helpful for saving energy. Outdoor lighting, garage lighting, home lighting, business lighting all should be energy efficient.
