A new year brings new projects around the house, but what do you tackle first? Take a walk around your home and take note of each of the projects, large and small, you have on your mind. Some of these projects might be things you do not like about your home or that are no longer functioning for your current lifestyle. Other projects might be dreams for the way you see your home down the road. Once you have compiled a list of home projects, you can sit down and decide which projects are realistic for this year and which projects are more realistic for the future. It is never too early to plan for the future!
Now that you have that list of home projects for this year, you need to prioritize. One way of prioritizing your home projects is to put them in order of small to large. It might seem less overwhelming to tackle fixing the front door before renovating your kitchen. Another way of prioritizing your home projects is to determine your budget. Some home projects can save you money in the long run or even increase the value of your home. Ultimately, you decide which home projects to focus on in the new year. Make sure you have your budget set, the right safety equipment and tools if you are a do-it-yourself kind of homeowner, and a reputable contractor if you are looking to complete a home project that is bigger than your scope of work.
