You probably already have a standard set of resolutions for the New Year that affect your happiness and health... now it's time for resolutions for your home.

Resolve to Replace Old Sliders with French Doors
Tired of the wobbly old sliding-glass door that leaks? It's time for it to go! Boost your property value by replacing it with more-attractive French doors. Todays' super energy-efficient models will keep your bills down while boosting your curb appeal.
Mike's Windows & Doors 296-9195

Resolve to Lighten Up
Floating shelves are replacing heavy upper cabinets, letting the light shine through and giving spaces a more open, airy feel. Partner yours with a backsplash that goes all the way up to the ceiling for continuity that feels like a grand gesture.
Rebecca Rollins Interiors 367-4394

5 Signs You should Resolve to Sell your Home in 2019

You need more, or less, space.
The kids have all moved out - or you have another on the way? Like to party, but your home lacks a grand room? It's time for a perfect fit.

It's limiting.
Yard too small for that pool you've always dreamed of? Can't eek out extra space for a work-at-home office? Size doesn't always matter - but flexibility does.

The commute's crummy.
No, we're not talking the 405. Work in Valencia but driving from Sand Canyon? Save yourself hours of frustration a week by relocating to the 91355.

Your neighbors aren't neighborly.
You could wait for them to move, but beating them to the punch means that you can hand-select a community that's a better fit for your family all around.

You found your dream home.
Yeah, we look at Zillow when we're bored, too. It's all fun and games until the online-dating version of real estate introduces you to your Happily Ever After. Just like relationships, it's always better to be with Mr./Mrs. Right than the "Right Right Now" equivalent. You spend the majority of your life at home - you should love every minute of it!

New Year's Resolutions from Inside SCV Staff
I resolve to be still more often and enjoy my two-person soaking tub that was installed
last year by Dannick Designs at least three times per week. In a world where showers
are fast and easy, I want to slow down and soak awhile. ~Jeanna

I resolve to find a new place for the cat box - anywhere that the dog doesn't think,
"Dinner is served!" will do at this point. ~Therese

I resolve to make tiny updates each season to keep my home looking fresh and new. ~Amandalynn

I resolve to actually burn my gorgeously-scented candles instead of just using them for display. ~Amy
