When it comes to new year’s resolutions, it can be easy to bite off more than you can chew. And many of us do the same thing when we decide it’s time to refresh our homes. That’s why one of our favorite creative new year’s resolutions for your home involves choosing one room and using the whole year to make your upgrades. If, for example, you want to upgrade your living room, you might start by painting the walls. Then, over the course of the year, you can continue purchasing items like a new sectional sofa, a new coffee table, and other living room furniture and décor. Then, by the end of the year, you’ll have completely transformed the room.

Start Decluttering with Storage Furniture

While decluttering your home may be one of the most common new year’s resolutions, that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with how you do it. Rather than focusing on storage containers, we recommend finding the right storage furniture for each room in your house. A storage bench, for example, can pull double duty in your mudroom, bedroom, or living room. Not only is it a convenient place to sit, but it can also hold blankets, reading materials, and other items you want out of sight.

Set Up Your Bedroom for Better Sleep
