New year’s resolutions for your home

Posted on December 24, 2015

The dawning of a new calendar year marks a great opportunity to start afresh. For some of us, this might mean dropping a few bad habits or adopting a healthier diet. One common place to concentrate our positive energy at the beginning of a new year is in our homes.

Here, we take a look at a handful of things you can do to transform your home at the beginning of a new year.

Replacing windows and doors

A new set of windows and doors can really transform a property. In addition to having a positive impact on the aesthetics and kerb appeal of your home, you can expect your new windows and doors to save you a good deal of money on your heating bills thanks to improved energy efficiency.

 

Re-design the garden

With spring around the corner, the beginning of the year is an excellent time to get to work on a brand new garden. Overhauling your outdoor space could simply be a matter of digging some new beds and getting some gorgeous flowers planted. More ambitious plans might include water features or the building of a stunning new conservatory and inside-outside living space.

 

Re-decorate

One of the most powerful ways to improve the interior of your property is with a lick of paint. Decorating the inside of your home isn’t only about freshening up your living environment, it can actually transform your home entirely.

 

Fit a new kitchen

Most of us spend a great deal of time in our kitchens throughout the day. For this reason, it is often the room that springs to mind when we think about spending some money on our home. Plans for a new kitchen might even include knocking through to an adjacent room with the hope of creating a new open living area. Spaces like this are becoming incredibly popular, largely due to how great they are for entertaining.

 

De-clutter

Not all measures to transform your home have to be about spending money. Rather than asking what you could add to your home, ask what you might be able to take away. Simply removing the clutter in your house can create a great deal of space. You can begin by throwing away things which you don’t use. Those things which you deem to be clutter but which you cannot part with can be hidden away using innovative storage solutions, reclaiming large areas of space.

 

Increase efficiency

Modern homes make energy efficiency a number one priority. In addition to helping reduce our carbon footprint, this can have a hugely positive effect on the size of our utility bills at the end of each month. As we’ve already mentioned, new windows and doors can help maximise efficiency. Other options include improving insulation and even installing state-of-the-art solar panels to make use of renewable energy for powering your home.

Satisfied Customers

"I asked 5 company’s for quotes to fit a new back door and supply and fit a conservatory, Glevum were the only company to provide a quote. They have turned up on every occasion when they said they would and communicated well to confirm times. A very professional service throughout."

R Wilks (Cheltenham) - Apr'22

"Each aspect of Glevum’s service was very professional, from start to finish. From the initial visit to provide a quotation, followed by the surveyor, and finally the fitter. Like most people I was a little worried about the disruption of installation, but the fitter worked quietly and efficiently, problem solving along the way, tidied up at the end, and I am extremely pleased with the end result. Would highly recommend."

J Basden (Coleford) - Mar'22

"Very Accommodating initial contact in November and Glevum agreed to delay installation until the New Year. Good advice, very expertly measured up, even the large windows fitted within a few mm. The installation team worked through one of the gales and only returned for a couple of hours over the three days allocated to finish outside trim on four windows (out of 12). We are very pleased with the outcome..."

A Crowther (Cheltenham) - Feb'22

"I am very happy from start to finish with Glevum and would not consider going anywhere else for windows and doors and I would highly recommend."
