New Year… New Home?

29 January 2018

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

We’ve all seen the ‘New Year, New You’ features in magazines and on lifestyle blogs, encouraging people to lose weight, or join a gym, or quit smoking, but those ‘makeover’ type New Year’s Resolutions are not for everyone.

An alternative is to give your home a makeover – even in a single room or outside in the garden – as this can transform your living space and help you to find a new lease of life in 2018.

In fact, even just the process of dumping a room’s contents into a hired domestic skip and starting from scratch can be really cathartic, so if you’ve felt stuck in a rut during the winter months, now might be the time to capitalise on those extra few minutes of sunlight each new day brings.

You are not alone

Remember, you don’t have to do it alone. There are plenty of tradespeople on hand to provide the electrician services, plumbing, decorating and skip hire Bolton households need to carry out domestic renovations – so even if you live alone, there’s support for the trickier parts.

Hiring a domestic skip gives you somewhere to dump all of your rubbish, so you don’t have to take heavy furniture to the local tip alone – if it’s not in good enough condition to sell second-hand, you can smash it up and put it into the skip as several smaller pieces that are easier to handle.

This gets even more helpful if you don’t have a car – or at least, if you don’t have a hatchback suitable for transporting large furniture – as your skip hire company will leave your skip within easy reach at the edge of your property or on your unoccupied driveway.

Plenty of choice

Depending on which room or area you choose to decorate, the job can be as big or as small as you make it, from an afternoon spent refreshing the paintwork to completely gutting a kitchen or bathroom and starting over.

If you don’t want to disrupt your living space, think about doing some work in the garden. You could dig new flowerbeds, build raised beds or rockeries, a fish pond, or even install artificial grass for minimal upkeep in the future.

The choice is yours – it’s your home, after all – and with versatile domestic skip hire, Bolton residents have the options they need when it comes to disposing of any waste created by the process.

Sooner is better

It’s easy to give in to the temptation to delay any major upheavals, but it’s also worth making a start sooner rather than later.

The sooner you start, the longer you will have to enjoy your transformed living space, and it makes good sense to get garden transformations finished before spring arrives, so new planting and real-grass lawns can grow in during the main season for growth.

Besides all of that, New Year’s Resolutions can quickly fall by the wayside once January is out of the way – so be proactive about your home makeover, and you will have something to show people when they ask if you are making a change in 2018.
