The New Year brings inevitable resolutions. How about, this year, picking something that will benefit you and your home? Sure, we can all pretend to go the gym every day, or we can vow to spruce up the homestead with these simple, uplifting ideas.


Swedish death cleaning may be all the rage; a few years back you had to hold everything to see if it brought you joy. Look, it does not matter what method you use; the goal is always the same. Clean up, clear out, and breathe better. Relax, enjoy your more open, indoor spaces. Minimize dusting, vacuuming and worry by reducing unsightly clutter.

Boost Curb Appeal

You never know when you might want or need to move, but when you do, you need to make your home stand out from the crowd. And, as an added benefit (should you have no plans to move), you can enjoy the facelift you give your home.

A great project is to replace your front door with one of Iron Doors Arizona’s beautiful iron doors. We would be happy to work with you on the budget, design of the iron door, and installation, to provide you and your family with a stunning new iron door for the New Year.

Your front door design can include personal touches of whimsy, or you can opt for one of the available luxury iron doors. By replacing your front door, you can make over the entire front of your home for a fraction of the price of a new roof or new siding.

DIY Family Time

Depending on the age of your children, a do-it-yourself project that everyone can participate in is a great way to set the tone for a new year filled with love.
Pick a room. Transform it. The littlest folk can “help” with crafts, tool fetching, and ideas for decor. Pre-teens love to paint (flat wall paint hides brush strokes!) while teenagers can help with installing trim, moving furniture, and explaining how lame everything is.

An excellent motif for transforming a family room is to take all those vacation souvenirs and pictures and memorialize the great family get-away moments.

Use Less Energy in Your Home

Little steps throughout your Phoenix house can save you money and reduce your carbon footprint. Replace incandescent bulbs with LEDs; use natural convection, and cross-ventilate with insets in your new iron doors, rather than depending solely on central air conditioning. Every small step you take gets you closer to lowering your energy bills and protecting Arizona’s beautiful environment.
