Kitchen Remodel: New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

A new year brings about a lot of changes and maybe a resolution or two, maybe your resolution is to finally update your kitchen, and get rid of all the clutter as well. If you are ready for a kitchen remodel, one of the main things to think about is your kitchen cabinets. 

Conquer the Clutter in your Kitchen Cabinets

Start your new years kitchen remodeling resolution off right, beginning with clearing out all of your cabinets and taking a stock of what you have. Try to let go of old dinnerware and cooking utensils you haven’t even seen in six months. Start fresh with less unwanted and unused kitchen items. Take this time to look at any food you have stored in cabinets also.

Save Energy in the Kitchen

Saving some energy isn’t only good for the environment, it’s great for your budget, a great resolution, and if you have your eye on some remodeling in the near future, saving on energy bills is a great way to start, and keep a great habit for savings in the future.

Start by looking at the thermostat in your fridge, most people rarely touch this, and it can get moved or bumped, and others don’t know the most efficient way to set it. The refrigerator should be in the 37-40 degrees F range, and your freezer should be between 0-5 degrees F. This could save you about 25% on the fridges running cost for the year on average saving $22.

Manage the load in your dishwasher, and activate any energy-saving features it may have. Most dishwashers use the same amount of water and power regardless of how much it is filled up. Cut your operating costs up to half by only operating it while it’s full. Average savings come to about $27 per year.
