Who says New Year’s resolutions are limited to diet and exercise goals? 2017 could be the year you make resolutions for your home. Not sure what improvements to make? Consider these ideas.

Resolve to Increase Energy Efficiency

Whether your goal is to lower your bills, make your home more comfortable, or do your part for the environment, adding insulation is an excellent way to increase energy efficiency. Similar to a cooler or thermos, insulation helps keep heated and cooled air inside your home where it belongs. This lowers the demand on your heating and cooling equipment and makes it run more efficiently.

Decide to Keep Your Gutters Clean

This New Year’s resolution could involve breaking out a ladder and work gloves every six months—or it could mean installing a Gutter Helmet for effortlessly clean gutters. If you need other gutter services first, MIG Building Systems can handle the job.

Promise to Install that Fireplace

Have you been thinking about putting in a fireplace? Resolve to get it done this year! Fireplaces offer incredible beauty and ambiance, not to mention a cozy gathering spot on bitter winter days. With the right installation, a new fireplace could even accomplish your goal to increase energy efficiency.

Agree to Organize the Closet

Why not make 2017 the year you tackle home organization? Don’t wait until winter’s over to begin your spring cleaning – get started right now! The closets are a particularly good place to focus on. After all, clean closets have an incredible effect on overall home organization because they provide a tidy place to store everything from clothing and outerwear to sports equipment and gardening supplies.

Pledge to Update the Bathroom

If you’re looking for a worthwhile renovation project to complete this year, consider a bathroom upgrade. One option is to swap out the shower/tub combo with a beautiful glass shower door. Another idea is to replace shiny brass finishes from the 80s with modern bathroom hardware. You’d be surprised the difference these relatively small changes can have on your bathroom’s appearance.
