6 Renovation Resolutions For The New Year To Enhance Your Living Experience

As the saying goes, “New Year, New You”. The new year is the perfect time to look forward to a new year of hope and opportunities. It is also the time to make a promise to make improvements in your life to do things differently, i.e. New Year resolution.

But beyond just the traditional New Year resolution about making changes to your life, it is time you make a renovation resolution for the new year to enhance your living experience at home. After all, it has been awhile since you last renovated your home, isn’t it?

If you are keen on making a new change and improving your current living experience, here are some renovation resolutions that might strike a chord with you.

1. Upgrade Your Bedroom For A More Cosy Living Experience

If one room has to win the “Most Important Room Of The House” award, the master bedroom deserves that. That’s because we spend most of the time in our home in the bedroom, including our sleeping time.

Since this is where we spend the most time, it is important that we love the living experience in the bedroom. We aim to make it as comfortable and as cosy as possible in our bedroom. That’s why the first item on our renovation resolution for the New Year is to enhance the living experience in the bedroom.

Or perhaps you prefer the clean, minimalist Scandinavian design that promotes less stress, less distraction and more freedom in your own personal space?

2. Create Your Workspace For WFH

The one common theme that has been repeated over the last two years is the Work-From-Home (WFH) trend. The worldwide movement towards WFH has never been so strong until the pandemic hit us and forced us to WFH. Both employers and employees were caught off-guard by this wave of WFH demand. Many of us didn’t have the right set up at home to allow us to WFH in comfort.

Some of us had to make do with makeshift tables while others have to substitute the iron board in our room as a workstation. So, if you are about to make a New Year’s renovation resolution, your WFH game plan is the number one thing that you need to fix.

If you have a spare room in your home, why not consider turning it into your new home workstation? Check out this sleek interior design from Areana Creation Pte Ltd which managed to not just turn this into a space for WFH, but also a versatile space for you to use it as an exercise corner when you are not working?

And even if you don’t have any rooms to spare, you can still carve out a workspace for your WFH needs in your existing rooms. You can take a leaf from this Mr Designer Studio design which makes use of the spare space in the bedroom to carve out a workspace for two. It even comes with a “corner office” view that overlooks your neighbourhood for you to look out when you are tired from work.

3. Build A Personal Cave For Your Personal Space And Time

Another major theme of the pandemic has been mental wellness. A key aspect of keeping your mental wellness is to have a personal space that you can claim to be yours where you can do what you enjoy in your own sanctuary without being disturbed. How about creating that sanctuary of space by carving out your own woman/man cave in your own home?

A great example of such personal space is this contemporary study room design by 9 Creation Pte Ltd at The Peak. From gaming setup to the keyboard and personal storage space, the study room contains everything that you love and enjoy. It even comes with an ergonomically designed gaming chair that makes sure that you can sit in the personal cave the whole day without feeling any back ache.

4. Make Your Room Your Runway (Walk-In Wardrobe)

Having your own runway and being able to strut down the runway while trying out your clothes is the dream of many women since young. Imagine being able to have a wardrobe of fashionable clothes within your arm’s reach, just like your favourite Victoria Secrets model. Well, you can make your runway dream come true with a personalised walk-in wardrobe in your room!

This walk-in wardrobe design from Space Atelier Pte Ltd comes with two built-in wardrobes right beside the bed in your master bedroom. It even comes a full length mirror at the end of the runway so that you can check out outfit and bag that you picked straightaway. You can even shout out to your husband to check out your fashionista outfit if you need some extra opinions.

This alternative design from Dots ‘N’ Tots Interior Pte Ltd is also one that we love. The idea of putting a vanity table in the aisle of the walk-in wardrobe is a genius touch that puts together everything a girl wants in the room. From the handbag to the outfit to the makeup, you can coordinate your next look in your personal runway before you wow your husband or friends.

Finding a good walk-in wardrobe design is a feat in itself. But we might have what you are looking for here.

5. Design A Relaxing Bathroom

Beyond just a space for you to wash up and stay hygienic, a bathroom also serves an important function as the space for you to get some personal care in private. It is also a great space for you to unwind from the day’s stress in a momentary space of solitude. Be it whether you just had a bad day or simply want to disconnect from the world for a little while, a bathroom is the place for you. Thus, it is important to ensure that your bathroom is as relaxing as can be.

6. Revamp The Kids Room And Make Your Kids Dream Come True

Every kid, including you, has a dream. That dream is to be able to grow up in a space that you can call your own where you can design it the way you want to.

Growing up, we might not have that kind of privilege to have our own room. But now that we have the resources to give the best to our children, how about giving them their own personal space? More than just giving them their personal space, we can revamp and make their childhood dream come true.
