We all take vows to change our lives in some way or the other at the beginning of every New Year — exercising more often, picking up a new hobby, quitting smoking, spending more time with family and what not!
How about a whole new take on this concept? How about a set of New Year Resolutions for your home? After all, our home is our most prized possession and our thriving ground, but often ends up getting less attention than it actually deserves. Hence, it is a brilliant idea to pledge to pay more attention to your home in the coming year.
So here are a few promises you may want to make to your home, come 2022:
Keep your home organized: We know you’ve been struggling with it for quite some time now, and the New Year is a great time to start making efforts to sort out your household. Take a vow to keep your home neat and tidy throughout 2022. To begin with, clearly define what is supposed to be where, and you should be good to go. All that remains then is sticking to the habit, of course.

Make your home safe: Safety is the most important aspect of any home, and the New Year is a great time for you to take steps towards making your home safer. Safety becomes all the more important when you have toddlers or adolescents in your home. You can adopt various techniques to make your home safer; a few ideas include childproofing your home, installing CCTV surveillance and concealing electrical wiring.
Make your home energy efficient: Making your home energy efficient will not only help conserve resources, but will also help you save a significant amount of money. Some good ways to save energy include installing energy star appliances, replacing conventional incandescent lights with new CFLs and LEDs, insulating your home (especially useful for winters), etc.
Decorate your home with plants: Plants are not only a great ornamentation for your home, they bring along a host of wider benefits. Plants add positivity to your home and bring a vibe of freshness into your living spaces. Not only this, they also help maintain humidity levels. That said, usher in the New Year by maintaining a healthy distribution of foliage both within and outside your home.
