Published: January 03, 2024 Last Updated: January 03, 2024
As you pen down your New Year's Resolutions, don’t forget to include your home on the list. Elevate your home this year, whether that is conquering that long-overdue project or seeking inspiration to revitalise your living space. Keep reading for our comprehensive checklist for a fresh start in 2024, packed with inspiring ideas to upgrade your home.
Reclaim your space – start with decluttering.
Step into 2024 with a blank slate – decluttering your house sets the stage for a renewed start.
When organising your home, start with organising your belongings into keep, donate, and discard piles. Ask yourself “Does this item bring me joy or serve a practical purpose?” Once you’ve parted ways with unnecessary clutter, organise your space with intention.
Start small; tackling an entire house can be overwhelming. Begin with clearing your kitchen counters, or giving your fridge a refresh. Small victories build momentum, making the process more manageable.
Get your home maintenance up to date
Make it a resolution to commit to proactively maintaining your home. Stay one step ahead of your home with some routine tasks:
- Cleaning aircon filters
- Cleaning gutters
- Checking smoke alarms
- Clearing garden debris from around stormwater drains
- Get your hot water system serviced
- Book a test treatment and termite check
Allocate a month of the year to complete each of these tasks to guarantee the accomplishment of all home maintenance this year.
Reduce Energy Consumption
The majority of our daily-use appliances run on electricity, contributing to potentially high energy bills. Assess the energy efficiency of your devices by checking their rating stickers—the more stars, the better. Replace aging appliances that may not function optimally, and be mindful to switch off all electric devices and lights when not in use to conserve energy. If you’re considering to get a professional energy audit done so you can save money on your next energy bill, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Make healthy indoor air quality a top priority
Prioritising the quality of the air that you breathe at home is an investment in your health. The air in your home plays a vital role in your overall health, even when allergens remain present. Ensure that your loved ones are breathing clean air this year by installing an air conditioner with an advanced filtration system. Experience the power of ultra-fine filters – specifically designed to capture allergens such as dust particles, pet dander, and other pollutants circulating in the air.
Green living starts at your home – bin it right
Step into a greener way of living as we kick off our exploration into home recycling. Recycling at home doesn’t have to be complicated. Incorporate the timeless mantra of ’reduce, reuse, recycle’ into your daily life. Opt for products with minimal packaging, find creative ways to reuse items, and make recycling a natural part of your sustainable lifestyle. Other simple practices such as making your recycling bin easy to access, understanding your local recycling rules and exploring composing and green waste services.
As we wrap our journey through New Year home resolutions, remember that each step you take is a stride towards a more comfortable, organised, and inspiring home. Wishing you a year filled with comfort, style, and the vibrant energy of a space truly call your own.
