Shift Towards Sustainability

Shift Towards Sustainability

Saving resources and going sustainable is good for the planet, your community, and your wallet. Many appliances are made to use less electricity, so if you have an old oven, stove, or refrigerator, you might want to check out some energy-saving options.

Invest in a large sink so you can fill up the sink once and use it to do all your dishes! This is much better than leaving the tap running, and you’ll see the difference when the bills come.

Go Guest-Friendly

Go Guest-Friendly

What do your guests think when they see your kitchen or bathroom? Making guests feel welcome in your home is essential if you hope to entertain in the new year, but it can also help you set the bar higher for cleanliness and organization on a day-to-day basis.

Commit to removing clutter from common spaces, doing a daily tidy-up, and making sure fresh soaps and towels are always on hand. In the kitchen, have snacks and coffee ready and keep napkins and tissues within eyeshot.

Candles and fresh flowers also make a space much more welcoming!

Learn To DIY

Learn To DIY

Chances are, something in your kitchen or bathroom has seen better days. If you don’t want to part with it just yet, make a resolution to learn to fix it. Whatever it is, you know it’ll be easier than trying to get the handyman to show up on time!

Or, make an upgrade and learn to install it yourself. Vessel bathroom sinks are a great place to start. They are inexpensive, durable, and can be installed in no time for an easy home reno.

Get Organized

Get Organized

Some of us don’t need any more stuff. It can be hard enough to keep track of everything you’ve accumulated over the last decade!

So, at the start of the 2020s, take everything into account and get organized.

Every weekend, pick a few cupboards in your kitchen or a corner of the bathroom and take stock. Then, ask yourself what you need and what you don’t. Finally, decide if there’s a better way to store the things you’ve deemed essential.

Add plate racks, kitchen island storage nooks, and open shelves if you need to rethink how you use your space. They are great organizers, and they’re all hot design trends for 2020.
