It’s a new year, and you’re ready for a fresh start. As you sit down to write your resolutions, consider all of the positive changes you can make right at home. Livening up just one spot in your house or apartment can automatically boost your mood. A few small changes may even make it easier to follow through on some of your self-improvement goals for the year. Read ahead for New Year’s resolutions for your home that will restore and revitalize your residence.
12 New Year's resolutions for your home
Committing to a home improvement project is a great way to kick off the year. Here are some New Year’s resolutions for your home that will impress both you and anyone who visits you.
1. Discard what you don’t need
The new year is a great opportunity to declutter any spots that have become disordered. Organize your pantry. Go through your files and toss out old papers. Do a room-by-room purge of stuff that’s just taking up space. Clearing out the things you don’t have use for can alter your home’s energy for the better, leaving your household feeling tidy and serene.
2. Transform your bedroom
Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, and the new year is the perfect time to turn it into a tranquil oasis. This can be as simple as changing your bedroom curtains to a more soothing color or adding a white noise machine for easier sleep.
Ambient lighting also has the power to turn your bedroom into a haven. The BlissRadia can light the way to relaxation with cycles of gentle hues that you can control right from your smartphone. Set your light on a timer and peacefully drift off to a world of tranquility.

3. Rearrange your furniture
Moving furniture around can also provide an energetic cleanse to any space. Try changing up your living room setting or moving your bed to a different side of the room. Just a small modification to your surroundings can change your whole perspective.
4. Freshen the air
The indoor air quality in your home can affect your comfort and health. This makes now a great time to upgrade your systems and start the new year with a breath of fresh air.
You can add air purifiers to remove dust or pet dander from common areas. You should also clean your window air conditioner filters when they’re not being used in the winter. If you have a central heating and cooling system in need of a refresh, you can schedule a professional check-up at any time of year. Regular maintenance of your HVAC system or furnace filters in the new year can make all the difference for your mental state and personal space.
5. Create a welcoming guest room
Make space to share memories with loved ones this year and turn your spare room into a second home for guests. If you have an existing guest room, spruce it up with new linens or a coat of fresh paint and unique artwork. Throw in small amenities like mini shampoo or lotion so your friends and family feel like they’ve stepped into a resort. A few thoughtful touches will go a long way in transporting your guests to another world.
6. Embrace new organizational tools
Streamlining your home’s flow with helpful organizing accessories is a great way to start off the new year. Use labeled bins to keep order in any storage space. Add extra closet room with an over-the-door shoe rack that gives you space back. Accentuate your home aesthetic with vintage coat hooks. A few well-placed organizing tools can instantly transform your surroundings into a calm, cohesive environment.
7. Reimagine one small area
Choose one corner to make over this new year. Add a touch of elegance as you walk in the front door with an antique mirror or small table with flowers in your entryway. Use chalkboard paint to make a playroom chalk wall for an easy artistic activity at any time. One single bold change can be instrumental in turning your home into a dwelling of comfort, creativity, and celebration.
8. See your space in a whole new light
Lighting can change everything, so make an intentional effort to remodel your atmosphere and upgrade your home’s light sources. Maximize natural lighting with new window treatments. Update interior light fixtures for compatibility with LED bulbs for energy efficiency and design flexibility. You can also try adding smart lighting so you can shift the ambience with the push of a button.
9. Enliven the outdoors
Use your outside space to create moments of wonder. Put up seed feeders and enjoy a cozy winter full of bird watching. If you’re in a warmer climate, you can plant a garden for spring, or you can build a fairy garden during any season. You can also beautify your patio with unique outdoor lighting for backyard gatherings that dazzle.
10. Renovate your work station
When working from home, it’s good to have a dedicated space free from distraction. This can be a reason to redo your work area for better workflow and balance in the new year. Put up vibrant artwork to instantly cheer you up. Invest in ergonomic furniture to reduce stress on your body. Overhauling your home office can be an excellent way to transform your workday mood.
11. Incorporate greenery
Plants have the power to change your environment. Pick out one or two low-maintenance houseplants to brighten a room. A little bit of flora and fauna in your home can change what you see and how you see it.
12. Wow with a pop of color
Add radiance to your home with a bold dash of color. Paint an accent wall or find a unique wallpaper pattern that will catch your eye every day. If you’re renting and can’t alter the walls, painting a coffee table or bookcase can make just as much of an impact.
If painting isn’t up your alley, you don’t need to break out the paint brushes to add color to a room. The Sky Lite Evolve turns your home into a magnificent galaxy of starscapes and colorful nebula clouds. With smartphone and voice assistant controls, you can add stunning hues to your space in the blink of an eye. You’ll transport yourself to a whole new world.
