5 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

With the New Year approaching many people are making their list of New Year’s resolutions. However, most people focus on resolutions for themselves. From eating healthier to staying organized, many individuals forget to think about resolutions for their household. Making home resolutions will undoubtedly help you stay organized in the New Year, so here are five New Year’s resolutions to kick start your 2018!

1. Simplify Your Stuff
Clutter is unavoidable, even if you are the most organized person in the world. This year clear the clutter and keep it that way as one of your New Year’s home resolutions. Throughout the year many individuals acquire a lot of stuff. So go room by room and purge any cabinets and drawers that are cluttered from last year. While cleaning, think about how much you’ve used the particular item in question. If you haven’t used something lately think about parting ways with it or donating it. Once you’ve cleared the clutter, think twice before bringing any new items into your house and make sure that anything you do bring into your home raises your energy level!

2. Shrink your Carbon Footprint
Nothing is better than going green for the New Year! This year reduce your carbon footprint by making minor adjustments to your household to “greener” more environmentally-friendly habits. That doesn’t mean you have to install solar panels or drive a hybrid car. Make minor adjustments and start with cutting your home’s energy usage. Here are some ideas to help you reduce your home’s energy usage!

  • Get smart with your thermostat and turn it down when you leave the house or at night.
  • Install LED lightbulbs around the house.
  • Give composting a try.
  • Only run dishwashers and washers/dryers when they are full.

3. Weekly Cleaning System
You can also become more organized by implementing a cleaning schedule for the week for your New Year’s home resolution. By planning a cleaning schedule, you’ll find it easier to clean you home throughout the week. Plus, keeping the mess under control will benefit you greatly. By spreading out home chores throughout the week you’ll have more time to spend with your family or invest in your hobbies. Also, it’s easier to clean in smaller portions than to clean the whole house! So stay on top of cleaning this year and keep any mess under control.

4. Get Ready for Entertaining
Have a little fun this year and entertain family, friends, and guests more in your amazing Judd Builders home! Take a vow to spend more time with those you care about. You’ll have a fantastic time with your friends, family, and neighbors. But if you’re going to be inviting people in, make your resolution to add updates or fresh decor to the rooms you entertain in. You don’t have to go full out and re-design everything, but bring in new elements to your home to create a new energy. Whether it’s creating dramatic presentations with large flower displays or adding new dynamic pillows, your guests will take notice!

5. Volunteer in Your Community
Take some time out of your busy lifestyle and find volunteer opportunities within your community. This is a great home resolution for you and your family because not only are you giving back to your community, but you’re also spending quality time together! Don’t feel like you have to go this alone either. Invite your neighbors and friends to join you and make it a monthly event! There’s nothing better than giving back to your community while getting closing with your family and friends!

Definitive Guide to Different Styles of Home Decor

Bohemian
This style captures a carefree lifestyle by layering vibrant and colorful textiles in every room. If you’re going for this style, look for furniture with nomadic and ethnic vibes. Think Moroccan or tribal and get funky with patterns and colors and your room will start to look like a boho getaway.

Contemporary
You’ll have to keep up with constantly evolving interior design if you want a contemporary room design. This style depends on what is current and modern, which is why it’s always changing. As for now, a contemporary room is usually clean and unadorned. There should be a lot of exposed space to create the look.

Costal
You don’t have to be on a beachfront in order to pull of this style. Make your place look relaxed and modest and don’t over do the cliché nautical decor. Instead, opt for subtle features that nod to costal living and incorporate a lot of natural material like glass. Also, go for a light and airy color palette.

Eclectic
Add you own personality when decorating with an eclectic style. Borrowing from a wide rage of trends, this style can be hard to manage. Make sure when designing that you strike a balance between old and new and you’ll be golden.

Farmhouse
If you want a warm and comfortable ambiance to come home to, this style is perfect for you. Extremely popular right now, this style is inspired by log cabins. Using distressed wood and a neutral color palette with a bright accent color will help you achieve this look. Don’t forget to make awesome arrangements with a bunch of greeneries!

Industrial
On the rise, industrial home decor uses steel and distressed wood to create the perfect space. Usually accompanied by a brick walls and copper tones, this style tends to be more rustic and rugged. However, there is a range of industrial decor to choose from. Just make sure to keep raw materials exposed and have plenty of statement lighting.

Mid-century Modern
Use natural shapes and refined lines to your advantage when trying to capture a mid-century modern style. Using pieces that are highly versatile make sure to mix and match this style with more contemporary pieces of furniture in order to strike the perfect balance.

Minimalist
Less is more when it comes to minimalist design. This style is stripped down to the bare essentials so that the space around these elements makes a statement. Don’t use too much color either. Color will distract from the simplicity of the design. However, if you want to incorporate color add a touch of primary color with black and white.

Shabby Chic
Don’t be afraid to show wear and tear when it comes to this style. Emphasize vintage elements and use distressed wood to capture the Shabby Chic style. Make sure the surrounding space is soft and sumptuous and decorate with white or pastel colors.

Vintage
Keep clutter to a minimum and a vintage interior styling will be easy to achieve. Although vintage is old fashion this style is far from that. Add vintage pieces to your room and balance them out with some modern elements. Your space can be charming, pretty, retro, or even edgy. That’s the great thing about vintage interior styling, it is extremely versatile and you can easily adapt it to your personal taste.

Fun New Holiday Traditions to Try Out This Year

Traditions that bring family and friends together each year are wonderful. Everyone likes to feel a part of something that helps them keep the spirit of the season alive. However, sometimes those old traditions can get, well, old. Maybe it’s time to stir things up a bit and mix in some new traditions. Here are some different activities to try out as a family or as a couple to celebrate the holidays and get festive.

Secret Santa
The challenge, should you choose to accept it: each person in the family or group chooses a name to buy for out of a hat – with the added challenge of sticking to a $20 budget! This will encourage people to get creative with their gifts since there is a limited price range on the gifts you can buy.

25 Days of Books
The perfect idea for families with kids (or even grandkids nearby). Purchase 25 different children’s books and wrap them up separately. Starting December 1 – let your little one open up one book to read before bed. This will not only help them count down to Christmas, but gives you and your child the perfect opportunity to sit down and spend some time together reading the book during the busy holiday season.  Select some holiday classics like The Polar Express or gift your childhood favorites such as The Giving Tree. You’ll build up their library while still being in the holiday spirit. The best part about this tradition is you can wrap the same books again each year. Even though the books aren’t new the act of opening up a book and reading it is a surefire way to get in the holiday spirit.

Holiday Bucket
Like advent calendar, grab a bucket and fill it with small little gifts the whole family will enjoy. Wrap up each small gift and number each gift for each day of the month. Open them up one by one as a family and enjoy what each gift has to offer. The gifts can range from drinking hot cocoa with mom and dad before bed or a popular Christmas movie. Get creative and find holiday activities that the whole family will enjoy. Other ideas for gifts include: coloring books, making holiday ornaments, holiday coupons, taking old toys to a homeless shelter etc.

Holiday Giving
The holidays are a perfect opportunity to give back to those in your community. If you love pets – then you can volunteer at a local shelter during the holidays to help out. Or collect old or used blankets to donate to the animal shelter to help keep the animals warm throughout the chilly season. Another fun activity to do as a family or neighborhood is to go caroling at your local nursing home! You can coordinate with their events manager and surprise them during or after dinner one night by going caroling from room to room or in their main meeting area. Some people in the nursing home may be alone during the holidays and getting a nice surprise visit from carolers will bring them so much joy!

You’ve Been Elfed!
This is a great way to celebrate within your community! Start the tradition by putting together a festive basket filled with cookies, candy, and a few different trinkets and leave it on the doorstep of one of your neighbors. Be sure to include an elf, a sign that says “You’ve been elf-ed” and a funny poem.  It will then be your neighbors turn to pass it on and “elf” someone else in the neighborhood. See how long you can keep the tradition going before Christmas hits.  Need some clever inspiration for “elfy” poems, click here.

Santa Sack
This tradition is not only fun and creative, but it also teaches the valuable lesson that Christmas is also about giving back. For this tradition ask you kids to go through their own toys that they don’t really use anymore. Then get a cute little “christmas sack” and put the toys to be donated in the bag. On Christmas Eve leave the Santa Sack under the tree for Santa to pick up and give to other kids in need. When the Santa Sack is gone the next morning it will solidify the magic of Santa!

So blot stain and check out Shaw Carpets website for tips to help you clean multiple stains and keep your carpets in tiptop shape!

Lumpy Pillows
If you’re unsure if you should throw your lumpy pillow away, there is a way to test it! Perform the “break test” by folding your pillow in half and placing a heavy book on it. If it pops back into its original state it’s still good to use. If not, your pillow is dead and needs to be thrown out and replaced. Also, the “break test” only works on fiberfill, down- or feather-filled pillows not on foam or any other type of pillow.

Mildewy Vinyl Shower-Curtain Liner
This one is an extremely easy fix! Just take the shower-curtain down and throw it in the washer with some old towels. Make sure to put it on a short-cycle using hot water and bleach and it will be as good as new!

Crayon Off The Wall
If you have any kids or grandkids they’re bound to get crayon all over the place, especially the wall. A magic eraser will do the trick, but if you don’t have one handy you could always use a blow dryer to heat up the wax and wipe it off with a rag and dish soap. Or if you have WD-40 handy, spritz it on the crayon markings and wipe it away!

Musty Front-Load Washer Smell
One of the most frustrating things to deal with around the house is the musty smell front-load washers give off. To rid your washer of the unpleasant smell you should move your wet clothes to the dryer immediately before they get musty. That’s easier said than done, but if you’re able to it will help prevent the musty smell from manifesting. Also, keep the front door open to let the washer air dry. However, there are other measures you can take to combat against your washer’s musty smell. Clean the door’s rubber seal once a month with a half and half solution of water and vinegar. You can do a cleansing wash by running your washer empty on the hottest setting with a cup of baking soda in the drum and white vinegar in the detergent dispenser. Also, don’t forget to clean your drain pump filter every few weeks!
