Don’t worry if you haven’t thought of new year resolutions for your home. This post is just about all that! We hope this list can help you create a more comfortable space for you and your loved ones.

Dedicate a working space

Whether you’re working from home on a daily basis or a few days a week, carving out a working space can actually help in accomplishing your tasks. In case there’s not enough space for an office desk, try transforming your kitchen table into a workspace.

You can also add a couple of artworks or a small plant to inspire productivity. After all, it’s going to be your personal space so might as well decorate it with things that make you happy.

Incorporate air-purifying plants

Plantitas and Plantitos made waves in 2020 and they continue to do so by inspiring more people to get into the hobby of taking care of plants. A celebrity even made headlines for her variegated billietiae that is worth Php 300,000.

Instead of jumping on the bandwagon of plant aficionados who spend hundreds of thousands for their collection, focus on indoor plants that have health benefits like these air-purifying plants: snake plant, chrysanthemum, and aloe vera.

Make it a habit to organize

Make an inventory of your living room, kitchen, and bedroom and decide which items would fall under ‘keep’ and ‘dispose’. Those plastic containers without matching lids need to be thrown away or recycled by using them as plant pots. Your little one’s toys must be kept in a clear box after he or she is done playing with them.

Invest in door racks with three or more compartments to organize your condiments, toiletries, shoes, and other accessories. Remember, it takes 21 days to create a habit.

Maximize natural light

Does your home boast of a window big enough to let the morning sunshine in? If so, then it’s time to open the curtains and allow natural light to come in. Not only does natural light improve one’s mood but also saves energy since there’s no need to turn on the lights.

If you have no big windows, you can always decorate with light colored wallpapers and mirrors to reflect natural light. There are also linens and furniture pieces that come in fresh, bright hues to lighten up your space.

Keep your home germ-free

Ever since COVID-19 came into the picture, people have considered cleaning their homes a top priority. The killer disease is no laughing matter, that’s why all precautionary measures must be taken to keep you and your family safe.

Here are five tips to keep your home clean:

  • Use a regular household detergent and water when cleaning frequently touched surfaces and objects like countertops, doorknobs, toilets, remote control, and telephone.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Have a separate room ready for sick household members.
  • Use a clean tissue when you cough and throw it in the trash after.
  • Clean the sponges, scrubbers, brushes, and all cleaning aids that you use.

These are just a few of the things you can do to improve your home. You can always enhance your resolutions based on the needs of your space. Cheers to the new year and sticking to these resolutions!
