Try These Great Home Projects for Your New Year’s Resolutions

For many of us, the beginning of a new year means making resolutions. Unfortunately, the personal resolutions we make for ourselves are often abandoned after just a few weeks. This year, why not try focusing on home projects for your New Year’s resolutions? Not only will doing so improve your home’s value, it will also help you save money, get more organized, and help you and your family enjoy your space for many years to come.

Increase Energy Efficiency and Lower Your Bills

One of the best home improvement resolutions you can choose involves simple ways to save big on energy costs. Some energy-saving improvements you can make to your home include installing low-flow shower heads, upgrading to a programmable thermostat, and replacing light bulbs with energy-efficient ones.

We also recommend checking your windows and doors for air flow and heating or cooling loss. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, upgrading your windows offers significant savings, up to $400 per year, depending on your region. At Neelz Contracting, we are experts in installing energy-efficient windows and doors, as well as impact windows and doors, which protect your home from storm damage, in addition to increasing your home’s value and helping you save on energy costs. As an added benefit, replacing your older windows with storm windows often means a 10%-15% credit in your homeowners’ insurance!

Remodel the Extra Room

A lot of houses have at least one room that is rarely ever used, even if it’s fully furnished or pristinely decorated. When considering home projects for your New Year’s resolutions, consider making 2021 the year you no longer let that valuable square footage go to waste. Whether you transform your garage into that man cave you’ve always wanted, or turn your guest bedroom into a home gym, we can help you remodel any room in your home and make it useful again.

Build More Storage

Do you find yourself constantly tripping over stray toys or having to leave your vehicle parked outside your garage because it’s too full? Make 2021 the year you transform your space with storage solutions that will leave you thinking—why didn’t I do this before? Home storage solutions such as sheds, hidden compartment shelves, and closet expansions are small investments cost-wise that can help you organize your life, and save you a lot of headaches.
