Resolutions for the Home

Colorful Storage Ideas

Colorful Storage Ideas

With the rush of the holidays over, we finally get a chance to sit down and breathe a little. Maybe the word resolution has come to mind. The typical things that come up every year for most of Calgary Spirit us are things like losing weight, exercising, maybe reading a little more or learning to cook. These are all great things! And we have such good intentions!

This year, think about it differently. Do things that will impact how you feel in your surroundings. Here are a few things you can do to simplify your Chilliwack Bomber life, tidy up well-loved areas in your home and possibly add value along the way!

 

1. Stop the pile up. We all have that spot we toss mail. The kids probably throw their coats and shoes in the same corner every day after school. And there’s that one spot where anything without a normal space wind up.

Instead of spending another year in the cycle of pile, sort, repeat… why not take charge? Get yourself a mail sorter for that mail. There are lots of different ways to store coats and shoes that are readily available and really attractive. And for those items that seem to live nowhere in particular, get a bookshelf or a set of colorful baskets. Voila! Instant organization!

 

2. Dress up your cabinets. Kitchen and bath remodels are always a hot topic. And makeover shows make us feel like we can tackle the biggest task and have a beautiful new space in just three days! The reality is, a little sprucing up is all you need. Wipe your cabinets down with a soft cloth to remove dust and fingerprints, then add some new hardware. It will change the whole look, be done quickly… and all without the demo crew and cameras.

 

3. Light up your life. These winter days can make your home seem a little darker, even if you’ve got your blinds and shades wide open. Change the bulbs in your lamps and fixtures throughout your home, and consider going a little brighter if your fixture allows. You’d be amazed at what something this simple will do!

 

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. These little things can be a good start to a great year!
