Easy to follow New Year's resolutions for 2021!
There is no better time than the start of a new year to make a resolution (or more!) that's focused on your home. You may want to completely update your space to meet the latest trends or fill it with new plant babies. Whatever it is, here are some easy 2021 resolutions to get you started.
The start of a new year is always about cleaning. Undecking the halls and cleaning up after the New Year's Eve celebrations means it's easy enough to keep going and do a deep-clean. Take it room by room. Scrub, vacuum, rinse and repeat until your home looks brand-new again. Set a resolution to do a deep clean at the start of every new quarter.
Cleaning is always a great place to start, but take it a step further and get rid of the things you don't need. Be relentless. If you find something that hasn't seen the light of day for an entire year (or more), then you probably don't need it. The crucial part of this is to be systematic. Use the same plan you had when cleaning, and go one room at a time. The process will take a little longer, but it will be much more painless, and you're far more likely to get the job done. Make two piles: one for items you will throw out and one for pieces you will donate. Once again, set yourself a resolution to do a purge at the start of every new quarter.
Plants and fresh flowers are the least expensive makeovers you can give your home. Make it a resolution to have fun finding the right colours, heights, and arrangements that complement the existing decor in your rooms. The proper plants will help clean the air in your home and provide at-home aromatherapy to lift your mood and help you relax throughout the year.
Have patience and take time selecting decor. It's easy to buy everything quickly and rush the process. Being patient, enjoying the process and making sure you're creating a space you feel comfortable and happy in is a perfect resolution. Being thoughtful about purchasing items is cost-effective and eco-friendly! Instead of buying many items that you kind of like, buying fewer that excite you means you will always be surrounded by things you love.
