It’s almost the new year! Have you started thinking about what your New Year’s resolutions will be? Maybe you’re considering which gym to join or what healthy recipes to try, but have you thought about your home in the new year? Here are five New Year’s resolutions for your home at Weston to get you started.
Let your home help you with your goals this coming year. Clear the clutter and make some space for living. Creating defined places for everything in your home makes it easier to put things away – and to find the tennis racquets when you need them. Give everyone in your family designated places, too, such as providing the kids with a special space to do their homework, which is sure to set them up for a successful new semester.
Turn your “storage” room into usable space.
Enjoy more of your home by finally turning that room you’re using for storage into usable space. Want to work on more DIY projects this year? Clean out a section of the garage or a corner of your kitchen to make a woodworking or crafting zone. Or maybe it’s time to move to a house that has more room for your passions. Homes at Weston offer flexible floor plans with many including optional craft rooms, storage or play rooms, so you can have the home that works for you.
Dine in your dining room.
What’s for dinner? Make a point to have family dinners together a few times a week. Clear the bills, homework and art projects off the table, set a place for everyone and enjoy time together over a meal. It’s a chance to slow down and connect. Having dinner with your family is also good for the body, brain and spirit. So, turn off the TV, put phones and tablets away and find out how everyone’s day was.
Go outside and start moving.
If a more active lifestyle is on your list of goals for the new year, take it outside. Find a neighborhood park to run in or a nearby pool for laps. When you live in a home at Weston, you’ll have access to Boulder Ridge Swim Club, the resort-style amenity center that includes a pool, spa, fitness center and clubhouse. You can get in a workout without having to leave the neighborhood, or have a staycation at the pool and relax the day away on the sundeck.
Decrease your energy use.
You can make your home healthier, too, by being more conscious about your energy use. Unplug appliances when you’re not using them, turn off lights when you aren’t in a room and change the temperature a few degrees before you leave. For even more environmentally friendly living, use technology and smart home devices – like the ones that are included in the LivingSmart® program at Weston – to help keep you connected and comfortable while conserving the earth’s resources. With all homes built in 2020 to be solar-powered, Weston is one step ahead of the game by having pre-installed solar in every home! Solar power systems can be leased or purchased when you buy a new home at Weston.
Start your new year in a more organized, more comfortable home that works for you – and the planet – and see how easy it is to check off your other New Year’s resolutions.
