DIY Home Projects to Take On in 2015

While you’re busy coming up with new things to tackle in 2015, why not add some home projects to the list? Investing in your home can be one of the most rewarding New Year’s resolutions. Not only will you create a fun, functional living space for you and your family—but you can all work together as a family to complete the projects. From furniture upgrades to whole remodeling projects—2015 is the year for the DIY home improvements.

We came up with 3 practical, achievable home improvement resolutions for 2015 to help you get excited for a new year in your new home:

De-clutter and Organize

Shoe Rack StorageWhile we try to create homes with plenty of storage space, sometimes it isn’t enough. Especially if you have small children, toys seem to be overflowing from children’s bedrooms into the larger living spaces. Hanging storage compartments is one of the most efficient ways to create more storage without taking up too much space.

Try a hanging shoe rack on the back of closets to store toys, accessories, and game pieces. In the laundry room, hanging shoe racks can be used on the back of doors to hold cleaning products, supplies, and even hold missing socks the laundry elves don’t find.  Another great reason to use a shoe rack—it can help you keep more dangerous cleaning products out of reach of small children.

Another way to create toy storage for your kids is to hang storage baskets in neat rows on a bedroom wall. You can also customize them to match room décor by painting them to coordinate.

One way to clear space in the kitchen is to create a Velcro or magnetic spice rack.  Use adhesive to attach magnetic or Velcro strips to the inside of a pantry or cabinet. Then use smaller strips to attach spices to the strips. It’s that simple!

Redecorate a Major Living Space

Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala, is a wonderful color to anchor your redecorating. If you prefer a neutral décor theme, try using marsala-toned pillow covers to give your room a splash of color. A painted accent wall is also a great way to add some color and life to a room without being too dramatic. It only takes a few elements to make a huge difference when it comes to interior decorating.

Rearrange Bedrooms

One of the easiest ways to keep your home feeling fresh is to rearrange the bedrooms. Not only will you feel like you have a completely new space to live in, but it will help you clean and organize along the way. Especially if you haven’t moved your bed in a few years, rearranging the room will give you an opportunity to vacuum and dust hard-to-reach places. After rearranging, you might find you have more room than you thought!
