Prepare Your Home for the New Year

“What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.” —Vern McLellan. And, we want to help you bring amazing new things this year to your home. To start the year off right, you need to add a few improvements or preparations. That is why we created this guide on how to prepare your home for the new year. 

Add New Floors

Add a new view on life through painting. A fresh coat of paint can make your home feel brand new. Luckily, there is a load of colors you can choose from depending on your theme, your lighting and your preferences. For 2021, some of the trending colors include Urbane Bronze, Ultimate Grey and Illuminating. 

Try out Home Improvement or Remodel

It’s a new year, which means you need to change or fix old things. During our time of quarantine, many of us watched home improvement shows or DIY videos and wanted to try out the projects we saw. Well, 2021 is the perfect year to get some of them done. While you may be able to do some of them on your own, contact your local handyman team to get the more complicated or tedious jobs done. And if you need more inspiration, we have a guide about the top 2021 home improvement ideas

Change Up Your Decor

Did your style change since 2020? That’s okay because you can switch up your decor with new ones that fit your aesthetic. If you want to do this, you will need to start saving money or sell your old items to start building a budget. Switching up your furniture and decor will cost you a pretty penny, so remember that as you are finding items you want. If you have a specific style, there are many home departments stores like Wayfair or Bed, Bath and Beyond that have categories based on themes or styles. However, do not be afraid to check out thrift stores, antique stores, flea markets or garage sales for cheaper or unique items. 

Switch to Eco-Friendly Options

More and more homeowners called for more eco-friendly or sustainable options and products for their home. And many manufacturers and home service companies are listening. Many flooring companies have eco-friendly floors and adhesives that will not damage the environment or harm you. Whether you want hardwood or carpet, there will be a product that fits your needs and budget. 

Add a Statement Piece

In 2021, statement pieces are en vogue. People are loving having a piece that becomes the talking or focal point in rooms or homes. These pieces are perfect ice breakers and conversation starters for anyone who comes to visit. A statement piece can literally be anything: sculpture, painting, photograph, accent wall, decor, etc. And if you are a creative person, you can create this piece on your own, which is even more personal and unique. 

By following the tips above, your home will be ready to take on 2021. We cannot wait to see what you come up with.
