New Year’s Resolutions

New year. New you. So why stick with the same old resolutions? Try out these four New Year’s resolutions for your home.
 

MAKE A CLEAN START

Resolutions don’t always have to be about breaking a bad habit. They can also be about creating good ones. And nothing will make your life easier than becoming a habitual cleaner.
 
Start by creating a cleaning schedule that separates tasks into daily, weekly, and monthly categories.
 
Daily chores will be small, like running the dishwasher or putting away laundry. Weekly chores will be more in-depth, like wiping down counters, cleaning the bathroom, and mopping or vacuuming floors. Monthly chores will be the least fun, like vacuuming drapes, cleaning behind appliances, and dusting ceiling fans.
 
Remember that every home is different, so put some thought into creating the perfect cleaning schedule for you.
 

SOCIALIZE MORE

Have you ever looked back on a year and lamented about how little time you got to spend with your friends and family?  Avoid having those regrets a year from now by getting your home ready for easy entertaining today.
 
Arrange your furniture in a way that encourages sociability and conversation. Having the right furniture layout is especially important in open concept homes, where one misplaced sofa can take a home from warm and inviting to cold and closed-off.

 
MANAGE HOME FINANCIALS

It’s never too late to learn something, and knowing exactly how things like home insurance and mortgage rates work will keep you ahead of the bell curve.
 
As always, make sure you’re checking your credit reports for discrepancies and stay on the ball with all of your payments.
 
Managing money can seem both simple and impossible. Tip the scales towards the former by trying to learn just a little bit more about home financials in 2018.
 

SAVE THE WORLD

And save a little dough, too.
 
Going green gets easier and easier every year. In fact, if you live in a Bielinski Home, you’re already pretty darn green.

Here are some other ways to look out for Mother Earth, and save on your bills:
  • Use smart-home technology to control your lighting fixtures and HVAC systems so you’re not wasting precious energy when nobody’s home.
  • Switch to low-flow appliances and fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom to save water.
  • Start recycling and composting regularly.
 
None of these things require a huge lifestyle change, and every single one will not only save the planet, but they’ll save you money, too.
 
If you’re resolving to become a homeowner in 2018, contact a Bielinski Homes’ new home consultant. Or if you’re just looking for a little home inspiration, start right here.
 
 
  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heide Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
