Resolution #1: Spend More Time Outdoors

There’s nothing like being able to enjoy time outside when the weather is nice. It only takes a few additions to make your backyard a destination for outdoor fun. Consider what you’d enjoy doing most outside of your home and start planning one or two of these outdoor projects for next year:

  • Build a deck or patio
  • Add a pool
  • Install a fire pit
  • Design an outdoor kitchen
  • Plant a garden
  • Build a gazebo
  • Install a playset

Resolution #2: Make Relaxation a Priority

Everyone needs a bit of downtime in their busy lives. If you’re not getting enough rest and relaxation in your home, it’s a great time to plan for updates that will allow for more you-time. Is your master bathroom lacking? Add a jacuzzi or soaking tub. Like to relax in the sun? Grab some new deck furniture or set up a hammock. Not sure what to do with a spare room? Create a cozy nook with comfortable chairs and curl up with a good book.

Resolution #3: Spend More Time in the Kitchen

A dull kitchen can keep you from being able to get creative in the meals you cook. If your kitchen is in major need of remodeling, spend some time listing out what you’d want in your ideal cooking space. Some ideas for your kitchen remodel include:

  • Upgrading to a double-oven
  • Transferring your stove from electric to gas
  • Adding an island or countertop
  • Installing open shelving
  • Putting in a double-sink
  • Building a bar

Your home is a big investment, so it’s vital to make it your own so that you can enjoy all of the time you spend inside of it. Johnson Lumber has plenty of resources for homeowners looking to improve upon their space and make their living areas more functional. Contact us today to learn more!
