Turn your kitchen renovation into a tool that’ll actually help this year’s resolutions stick. 

As the clock struck midnight, you may have found yourself making a mental list of all the things you want to do better this year. From eating better food to reading more books to finishing that kitchen renovation, your New Year’s resolutions are as set in stone as they’ll ever be.

However, if you find yourself falling into that January slump that seems to derail many resolution hopefuls, don’t despair. We’ve got a few tricks that can help ensure your New Year’s resolutions are carried on throughout the year.


Resolution #1 – Eat healthier foods

This is probably one of the most common resolutions promised by many at the turn of the New Year. To help kick start your resolution, push that kitchen remodel to the top of the list.

When you work with your Kelowna renovation contractors, tell them you’d like to focus on a design that promotes a healthy lifestyle. Incorporate your favourite appliances into a layout that appeals to you. When you love your kitchen, you’ll want to spend more time cooking in it, and that means more homemade (healthy) meals and less take out!


Resolution #2 – Get more exercise

Your basement has sat unfinished for far too long. Make this the year you finally finish it. If you’ve set a resolution to get more exercise, a basement remodel is the perfect way to achieve this. When drafting up plans for basement finishing, incorporate an exercise room. Once that’s in place, you’ll have no problems keeping your resolution.


Resolution #3 – Get more sleep

Your bedroom is your sanctuary, so give it to the love and attention it deserves. Plan a bedroom remodel that facilitates a relaxed sleeping environment. When it comes time to finish up the final details, pick out some room-darkening shades and relaxing paint colours and you’ll be itching to climb into bed every night.


Resolution #4 – Take up a new hobby

That previously mentioned basement renovation? Why not add a new sewing room or a room for some carpentry tools. Once you improve the space, you can get started on your New Year’s resolution to learn a new skill or pick up a new hobby.


Resolution #5 – Read more books 

By building yourself a reading nook or library addition, you can spend more time reading and less time plugged into social media. Once you’ve worked with a contractor to draw up the renovation plans, head to the local library or bookstore and start browsing. When the renovation is done, you’ll be able to cozy up with a new book or two in your brand new reading space.
