Easy Ways to Simplify Your Home

Easy Ways to Simplify Your Home

Last week we talked about the kitchen design trends that are making an impact. One of those trends was the idea of living a clutter free kitchen. In the age of Covid, when we're spending more time than ever before in our homes, we're all finding that getting rid of the clutter feels good.

It can also be a bit overwhelming if you've got a home filled with a lifetime of memories and other things you've picked up along the way.

With more time on our hands and more time at home, there's never been a better time to simply your home environment. These tips and tricks will help get you on your way to a clutter free home in no time. 

Easy Ways to Simplify Your Home

  1. Follow the 6 Month Rule - This is especially useful for the closet. If you haven't worn something in 6 months you probably aren't going to wear it again. If you've got clothing from the 90s hanging in your closet, it's time to let it go. 
  2. If it doesn't fit, pitch it - Don't hang on to clothing that doesn't fit because you think you're going to lose weight and get into it. If you lose the weight that's wonderful. Treat yourself to some new duds, but toss out the ones that don't fit now.
  3. Shred it - It's best to save legal and financial documents for 7 years, but you don't need to save bank statements or credit card statements. In fact, you shouldn't even be getting them on paper anymore. After you've gone digital go ahead and shred or burn all those old statements that are cluttering your desk. 
  4. Books - It's difficult for book lovers to get rid of books, but they take up a lot of space and the odds are really good you're never going to read that Tom Clancy novel again. Save the classics and any favorites if you have room, but get rid of paperbacks and any books you have no desire to read or reread. Donate them to the Goodwill or local thrift store so others less fortunate can benefit from them. 
  5. One Room at a Time - Paring down your belongings can be an overwhelming task. It can also be an emotional task. Take it one room at a time and do it over the course of several weekends. You'll have time to consider what you want to keep and what you can part with without being pressured due to the need to move or some other crisis. 

By paring down ahead of time you'll have the luxury to really consider the things you want to keep and the things you're better off without. Then, when it comes time to move you won't be stressed by those considerations. 

Building Your Own Town Home

Building Your Own Town Home

If you’re like most people at one time or another you’ve dreamed of building your own town home. But how do you turn that dream into a reality?

Many people get bogged down right from the start when it comes to building a town home. They think it’s too expensive, too difficult and just takes too much time to manage the whole process. The truth of the matter is it doesn't have to be with the right help.

We’ll help you through choosing the perfect lot, finding the right floor plan and then we’ll show you how to go about customizing it to fit your lifestyle and specific needs. We’ll ask you how you live so you know what kind of town home floor plan will work best for you, your family and your lifestyle.

We’ll help you learn about the building process and what kind of materials go into your home. If you’re building a home in Houston you want to choose exterior materials that will hold up to the heat and humidity, but you don’t need to worry about snow.

We’ll help you figure out the permitting process and why you need to know about floodplain management. Both of these can be confusing, but we can point you in the right direction for help in this area.

The average person thinks about building a new town home for several years, there is no doubt it is a big decision and that decision is followed by even more decisions. There is no arguing that building a new town home is more time consuming and challenging than purchasing a used home.

While it’s true there are many headaches to be had while building a new town home those are far better than the headaches that come from living in a used home that needs more work that you were prepared for.

Don’t be intimidated by the new town home building process. There are certainly many hoops to jump through when it comes to purchasing the land, purchasing the floor plan and getting all the correct permits, but it’s a manageable experience if you know what you are doing and we’ll help you learn the process one step at a time.

Building a new townhouse doesn’t have to be difficult. And, in fact, it can be a lot of fun.

In a home you build you can create amazing customizations (and we’ll show you some great ones) that you just can’t do in an existing home. Give us a call to learn more - 713-522-2724.
