Refresh Your Home in the New Year With These Home Projects

For many people, the start of a new year is the perfect time to make goals and plans for what they want to accomplish in the months ahead. Among the many personal goals you may have set, chances are you’re also thinking of how you can improve or upgrade your home. Here are just a few ideas to consider for how you can refresh your space.


  1. Add Shelving

If you need help getting organized, few things can be more helpful than adding vertical shelving or other storage solutions,. This can be especially helpful in cluttered places like the garage, bathrooms, and pantry. Creating additional storage space — be it with wire shelving, storage baskets, or a built-in cabinet — will make a big difference.


  1. Update Light Fixtures

Outdated light fixtures may not provide enough light to your rooms, or they may just not fit your preferred decor style. Updating the lights in your entryway, kitchen, and bedrooms can brighten your space, while also helping create your favorite look, be it modern or traditional.


  1. Touch Up Walls

Scuff marks, dents, chipped paint, and other damage can leave your walls looking worse for wear. Give your home a facelift by repainting your walls and patching damaged areas. Whether you prefer neutral colors or something bold and unique, it’ll make an immediate difference.


  1. Improve Energy Efficiency

It never hurts to find ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Even simple things, like sealing air leaks or switching to LED lightbulbs, can reduce energy costs and improve comfort.
