My Top 10 Home Improvement New Year's Resolutions for 2010

I consider myself a home décor pro but I need to improve on certain things. So my top 10 home improvement New Year’s resolutions mainly revolve around the things that I need to work on to improve the look of my home.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 1: Clean floors (or at least an illusion of the clean floors)

My living room has marble flooring. I have to admit it; I cannot keep it clean as I do not have the time to scrub and wipe daily. So I am planning to throw a big rug in my living room in 2010. I don’t have a problem with vacuuming twice or even thrice in a week.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 2: An empty kitchen sink

I hate the sight of dirty dishes in the sink. Yet I fail to wash them regularly. Sometimes the pile grows beyond imagination. So, this year I am going to wash anything I eat or drink in, right there and then. I hope I can make my hubby do so too.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 3: Making a photo display

Time for another confession: we have hundred of photographs from vacations and outings that are rarely seen, never printed and lie hidden somewhere between the never-organized folders of my hubby’s laptop. This year I’ll make it a point to manage all of them and to print some of them. I’ll make a cute, romantic photo collage for our bedroom.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 4: Décor on a budget

Like many Americans, I am on a budget too. I am a home décor pro but I’ll make sure that whatever changes I bring about in my home settle in my tight budget. This year money is not to be over-spent and never to be borrowed. (Thrift shops and flea markets: I am coming!)

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 5: Turning the useless parking space into a tiny garden

Our parking space is plain, bland, and boring. In the 2010, I’ll plant some low-maintenance and evergreen plants there to take away its dullness.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 6: Attracting birds to my home

Trying not to sound too mushy, but I want to wake up to the sounds of birds chirping. I’ll buy some bird feeders and will keep them at strategic locations to attract birds to my house. (Filling the bird feeders regularly will be my New Year’s Resolution for 2011).

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 7: Use of flowers in home décor

I’ll adorn my bedroom with fresh flowers once every two weeks.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 8: Adequate lighting in the home

I’ll replace the bad bulbs with energy savers and I’ll add at least two light fixtures in my home; one in the bedroom and the other in the kitchen.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 9: Installing a swing set

We do not have kids but adults can also enjoy the swing sets. I’ll order a comfortable swing set on which I’ll lie and read in the lazy afternoons.

Home Improvement New Year’s Resolution for 2010 # 10: Allowing more light and air in the bathroom

My home has only one bathroom, which is tight, dark, and cramped. Maybe in the mid or late 2010, I’ll get its wall replaced with a big window to allow more sun and air. This is my only new year’s home improvement resolution that might cost us dearly. That is why it is on no. 10. This will happen only if I get a lot of money some way (that right now I don’t know of).
